Interactive FIFA World Cup qualifiers come to Sydney

Sydney will play host to the world's largest football gaming tournament next month

Gamers and sports fans unite! Sydney’s Royal Easter show will launch one of 10 worldwide qualifying events for the 2010 Interactive FIFA World Cup.

Kicking-off (virtually, of course) on 1 April and running to 14 April, the FIFA, EA SPORTS, and PlayStation sponsored event will see football and gaming fanatics try their hand at representing Australia in the Grand Final. Sixty four finalists will be whittled down to one winner who will compete in Barcelona on 1 May.

A free trip to Spain is not all that is on offer for the Australian qualifier. If they work their way through Barcelona to become the interactive champion of the world, a cheque of US$20,000 will be sent their way, along with an invitation to attend the FIFA World Player Gala.

There a number of spots still available before the heats begin; so for those of you who think you can take a virtual 45-yard free kick better than Cristiano Ronaldo, register at www.FIFA.EASPORTS.com/footballexperience. If that sounds like too much work, there will be a few walk-up positions available on the day.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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