Six great games for lazy people

Laziness isn't a crime (especially when it comes to games)!

Let's face it--for the most part, video games are only demanding less and less from the player, especially with beginner difficulty settings and tutorials coming standard with most new games.

Several days ago, Nintendo took this to a new level when they revealed that in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, you will have an option where you can actually have the game play itself. If you can't get past an obstacle in the upcoming platformer, you can simply press a button and the game will not only show you what to do, it will do it for you.

But that's not necessarily a "bad" thing, is it? Not every game has to be uber-grueling. Hell, I remember the days when some games only supplied you with one life and once your health bar was depleted you were forced to start from the very beginning of the game. We take a look at several great games that don't feel like a chore to play.

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.

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.
