Video game designer among top ten well-paid creative jobs

Video game designers make more than professional animators, less than web designers

A top 10 list of well-paid creative jobs pegs video game designer as the fifth-most attractive profession, just ahead of a professional animator. Web designer nabbed the top spot.

Results for the article come from PayScale.com, which lists video game designers at an average salary of US$62,500 a year. The job description that goes with that figure alludes to the alleged recession-proof quality of the video games industry, which makes the entry comical when you read it on this heels of a Game Developers Conference rant by recently laid-off developers.

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.

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.
