Nintendo to introduce Virtual Console demos on Wii

Nintendo on Friday said that Smash Bros. Brawl will include timed-demos of Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Kirby's Adventure, Super Metroid, and more.

"For the first time ever, you can play trial versions of these games by the miracle of Virtual Console," reads a statement from the official Smash Bros. Brawl Web site.

A partial list of games to be featured include Ice Climber, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Kirby's Adventure, Kid Icarus, Super Metroid, and Star Fox 64. "You won't need to be connected to Nintendo WFC to play these games," said a Nintendo representative.

The news is a first for Wii, which trails both Xbox 360 and PS3 in terms of giving players a chance to try games before they buy. A complete list of available Virtual Console games can be found here.

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

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

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.
