EA Games Mass Effect 2

It took some time, but PlayStation 3 owners are finally welcome to join Commander Shepard and the crew of the Normandy in BioWare's intergalactic action-RPG epic. It's the same great game 360 owners are already familiar with, albeit outfitted with the previously released DLC and the slick new Mass Effect: Genesis backstory comic.

  • Pros:
  • Very solid port; Mass Effect: Genesis comic provides a fine alternative to playing the original game; excellent DLC works seamlessly with the main quest.
  • Cons:
  • Reports that it's a major visual upgrade appear to be overblown; streamlined gameplay will likely put off more traditional RPG enthusiasts.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
