The Doom III demo had 'em jumping out of their seats at the Electronic Entertainment Expo last May. Although details at this time are scant at best, it's clear that Doom III will stick to the original story. In the year 2145, the Union Aerospace Corporation is conducting some sort of teleportation experiments on Mars. In the demo build, a weird-looking scientist crept furtively around the facility. He tossed a switch and… well, you know the rest. Wraith-like skeleton heads flew out of a teleporter and straight into the bodies of all the Marines on guard, turning them into fatigue-clad demons.

You'll become the lone survivor in a first-person perspective world of trouble. A pistol, a shotgun, and a machine-gun supplied the firepower in the preview version, and the targets revealed were several types of creatures, but it's not definite what will show up in the final game. Bloated zombies lumbered down the halls, but demon dogs and a weird four-legged Alien-type thingie charged down the corridors with terrifying speed. With Doom III, all hell's breaking loose… again!

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
