GLaDOS pops the question in modded Portal 2 levels

QUADs and epic loot come easy to a gamer, but what if you need to propose to your girlfriend? If you were like Gary Hudston--whose girlfriend Stephanie shared in his obsessive love of the Portal series--you would post a want-ad on a popular modding community, Thinking with Portals, for custom Portal 2 levels that lead to a wedding chapel.

Besides getting some elaborate levels done by several mappers, Hudston also contacted VALVe and asked if he could put custom lines into the levels. VALVe did not only approve, they brought in Ellen McLain, the voice of GLaDOS (your in-game AI-construct nemesis), to create new game dialogue and to pop the question. And yes, Stephanie said "yes". It seems like game developer created engagement proposals are becoming a fad, like this one done by a Claptrap from Borderlands.

The developer has made the levels available so you can play them too. To get started you will need to move files into your Portal 2 directory: Put the VPK in "addons", and Biks in "media". Start the game up, and once you're in, you'll need to pop open the console and input "map la_bringing_together."

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
