Minecraft hits the Nintendo Switch
Minecraft is coming to Nintendo’s recently launched Switch handheld gaming system. It is first rolling out on the Nintendo eShop in North America, before following in Europe, Japan and Africa.
Nintendo Switch Edition comes with fun features of other console versions of Minecraft, including multiplayer mini games, Battle and Tumble. But of course, being for the versatile Switch, this version lets you play with friends in a variety of ways: get together online for some eight-player action, eight-player local play (if everyone has a Switch) or squeeze four of you onto a couch to play split-screen in front of the TV on a lone console. Some other blighted family member hogging the TV? Flip out the Switch’s kickstand and play in tabletop mode. That supports four-player split-screen, too, with players wielding either Joy-Cons or the Pro Controller.

Acer has unveiled its TravelMate X514-51 commercial notebook series for small and medium business users. It’s designed for professionals requiring a durable, yet sleek device that can support heavy workloads and frequent business travel.
The TravelMate X5 sports a premium quality magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis for holding up to the rigours of life on the go. These materials are two to four times stronger than standard aluminium alloys at the same thickness, yet weigh between 20-35 percent less. This blend of materials makes the notebook thin and light while also being resistant to bending and twisting.
Highly portable, the notebook computer weighs just 980 grams and measures 15 mm thin making it easier to hold and fit in a briefcase, bag or backpack. Acer claims the computer has up to 10 hours of battery life to support a full day’s work on a single charge. Primed for excellent performance, the new notebooks are powered by up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 16GB DDR4 memory, and up to fast and responsive two 512GB solid-state drives for viewing and editing large spreadsheets, presentations and videos. Outfitted with Windows 10 Pro, the notebook provides powerful security and productivity essentials.
“We’re confident our professional customers will appreciate our thinnest and lightest professional notebooks to date,” says Belinda Marais from Acer Africa. “Sleek, yet robust, they’re built for the rigours of frequent travel with a sturdy chassis and strong security features to keep data safe at home and abroad.”
