#3: New Super Mario Bros.


Why It's Great:Thirteen years. That's how long it took for another new, honest-to-goodness 2-D Mario platformer to come out after the Game Boy's Super Mario Land 2. While there were plenty of amazing 3D adventures and solid remakes of the older Mario titles, New Super Mario Bros. reinvented the franchise by mixing 3D visuals and moves with 2-D mechanics. Aside from some questionable power-ups (is there any benefit to turning into a turtle?), most of what's new in New Super Mario Bros. is nice.

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.
