2008: Left 4 Dead

Play as a Zombie

Valve's popular cooperative first-person shooter Left 4 Dead releases for Xbox 360 and PC. The game pits a team of human survivors against the undead. Unlike most zombie-themed video games, Left 4 Dead gives players the option to actually fight as a zombie, including one that spews bile that attracts zombie minions like flies and another with an elongated tongue that's effective at dragging victims toward it. Left 4 Dead's not the first game to let you play as a zombie, but it's one of the first games to do so effectively. Exactly one year after its release, the awkwardly dubbed but highly acclaimed sequel Left 4 Dead 2 hits.

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.
