LaCie has officially invited their 2big line of RAIDS to join the Thunderbolt party, granting them transfer speeds up to three times faster than a tired old FireWire 800 connection. At 311MB/s, you better tell your data to buckle up.
I just got some mitts-on time with Lenovo's new notebook, the X1 Hybrid. What's interesting about it is that it can boot into a battery-doubling low-power mode that runs off of a snapdragon processor and custom software based on a certain kernel we all know.
Windows 8 has a gorgeous Metro and finger friendly swipe-y interface that's perfectly fine but so 2011. All I want in my life in 2012 is Tobii, a company that's made the future possible: you control Windows 8 with your eyes. Seriously, it knows exactly what you're looking at when you're looking at it. It's instantaneous, it's ah-mazing and I haven't been this excited about technology since well, ever.
HDTV is cool, I guess, but it's going to be hard to go back after looking at LG's ultra-def 4k display, which packs four times the pixels as a 1080p set. It's mind-bogglingly crisp and enormously... enormous. Second mortgage time!
Asus isn't the only one who gets to have transforming tablet fun. Lenovo just joined the party with their 10.1-inch, Ice Cream Sandwich-equipped IdeaPad S2, complete with all the versatility, speed and power you could ask for from a tablet, and then some.
Rumours of a slimmer, more capable sibling to Acer's A200 tablet have been floating around for a while. But all Acer had to reveal at their press conference today was that the still unnamed tablet would have a full 1080P display, and will be powered by a quad core processor.
Acer's first Ultrabook, the Aspire S5, also happens to be one of the first of what will certainly be a tidal wave of Ultrabooks announced at CES this year. It's just 15mm thick at its largest point, and weighs in at less than 3 pounds.
Just hours ago we reported that the One Laptop Per Child project was going to unveil their $100 (£65) tablet at CES. And now we have some of the first official photos of the highly affordable, yet extremely durable device.
According to the New York Times, a couple of unnamed sources have tipped them that Nokia will officially introduce the rumoured, and possibly already leaked, Lumia 900 at CES on Monday. But besides being "sleek" and "metallic," there's not much else revealed:
You might think they only make knives, but Victorinox also makes some of the best flash drives on the market (in this reporter's opinion.) They're well-built, extremely fast, and in a few days might be available in one terabyte capacities.
Here comes CES and it's no cakewalk, let me tell you. It's more often like a slow-moving mosh pit than a electronics show, so the gear we carry can mean the difference between a smooth expo experience and utter failure.
Remember OLED? Even back in 2009 we were lamenting how the gorgeous screen tech seemed to be a flash in the pan for televisions—at least for those with less income than Lex Luthor. LG, however, is OLED-ready.
