Nintendo Wii in the black (literally)

Nintendo's popular console now comes in a new colour

From 11 March, Australian gamers will be able to get their hands on the latest guise of the Nintendo Wii. Imaginatively dubbed 'Black Wii', the new version of the popular console is finished in a sleek black colour -- much like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Elite.

Retailing for $399.95, the Black Wii will come bundled with a black Wii Remote, a black Nunchuk and the game Wii Sports. Personally, we think Nintendo should have gone with a grittier game to match the sinister noir aesthetic. (Although convincing your mum to buy a Manhunt 2/MadWorld bundle would probably be a bit tricky.)

On the plus side, the Black Wii is sure to fit in with the rest of your home entertainment system, instead of standing out like a ghostly, pallid thumb. Black Wii Remotes can also be purchased separately for $69.95 a pop.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
