Review Acer Aspire 5536G Notebook

 

AMD Multimedia Entertainment. The Acer Aspire 5536G presents itse

Attractive design; Stable case; Generous configuration in view of RAM and mass storage

Illumination and viewing angle stability of the employed screen; Reflective display surface; Restricted opening angle; Constantly present fan; Relatively low battery life

Zombie apocalypses seem to be pretty popular these days. Most of these movies involve a band of survivors working their way to a safer area while battling out with brain eating creatures. This sounds like it would make a great game doesn't it? In comes...

Just like on the PC, the 360 version of Left 4 Dead is just immensely fun to play. Whether you go on the hunt or are the hunted, Left 4 Dead will leave you wanting more every time you finish a campaign.

Valve Software's newest game,

Finally we come down to it: What is the best value in a video card right now, for Left 4 Dead? As much as we hate to sound like a broken record, we must give credit where credit is due, so we have to give the nod to the original, 192-shader NVIDIA...
