The latest instalment of the Call of Duty franchise hit retailers overnight, with hundreds of customers lining up for the midnight launch across the country.

Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the sequel to the original Black Ops game which was released in November 2010.

Black Ops II is set mostly in 2025, and will see the return of Alex Mason for some segments of the story, and his son, David, for others.

Cyber conflicts are set in Los Angeles, Singapore, and Yemen.

Treyarch has also brought Zombies back in this instalment, although has built on the concept by introducing an entire campaign for the game mode.

EB Games is selling Black Ops II Standard Edition for $98, with the Hardened Edition available for $108, both for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Harvey Norman has the Standard Edition listed as $88.

JB Hi-Fi is selling it for $79 on the same consoles.

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
