Deja vu: Microsoft cuts Xbox 360 prices in Europe

European customers will receive their second Xbox 360 price cut in the past six months.

This Friday European customers will receive their second Xbox 360 price cut in the past six months.

Microsoft confirmed the cut via a press release Tuesday, which said the price of the base model Xbox 360 Pro will drop to £169/€239.

The bare bones Arcade model will be £129/€179, which puts it substantially lower in price than Nintendo's relatively inexpensive Wii console.

The higher end Xbox 360 Elite will retail for £229/€299.

Checking the release calendar for the Xbox 360 in Europe for the upcoming months, we see that two huge soccer games, FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer, are due out for the system very soon. Combined with the lower prices, it could make for a very interesting holiday for the traditionally pro-Sony European market.

There was no word from Microsoft on further North American price cuts. If you'll remember, the company cut the U.S. Xbox 360 price across the board on September 5.

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

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.

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.
