We found so many great new products this year at CES that we could have easily awarded 20 with a “Best of CES” designation, but alas, we could only pick ten. Here, in no particular order, are Gear Diary’s top 10 picks for Best of CES 2019.
Lenovo is known for two major computer lines: ThinkPad and Yoga. They’ve announced a bunch of ThinkPad updates too, but the real star today is the Yoga line, which is adding an all-in-one to go along with their 2-in-1 laptops, plus there’s a fancy new mouse to round out the Yoga family!
Dell isn’t anywhere close to done with their CES announcements yet. Alienware takes all the gaming attention, but if you like to rock the Dell logo while you’re playing World of Warcraft, Dell’s G series gaming laptops have your name on them! (Not literally, unless you’re Michael Dell, in which case it would be very strange for you to be getting your news from Gear Diary).
Dell may not always get pulses racing with excitement, but if anything in their lineup is designed to turn heads, it’s the XPS. The new XPS 13 crams so much good stuff into one computer you’re almost going to be excited enough to tell people “Dude, I’m getting a Dell!”
Some of us might hear “Area 51” and think of government conspiracies and terrible 90s WB dramas about mopey alien teenagers. Gamers, however, think of Alienware laptops, and the flagship Area-51m from Alienware gets a big update with immense power in a portable body!
Lenovo always comes to CES prepared with a roster of heavy-hitting announcements, and this year is no exception. With ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 Yoga updates, some seriously big monitors, and a few amazing accessories to round things out; let’s dive in!
As CES 2019 begins, Acer is announcing some new computing devices worthy of note. The first is the Swift 7. This large, powerful laptop is a premium offering that has a starting price of $1699. A “compact design and “incredible screen-to-body ratio” gives consumers a full-size experience in a thin and light design.
You may not have paid much attention to Huawei in the past, but if you’re in the market for a solid Windows laptop or an android tablet, Huawei should be one of your top stops. The new MateBook 13 and MediaPad M5 Lite are designed to make your computing and mobile life run as smoothly as possible.
Alienware is intent on making gaming laptops as cutting edge on the outside as they are on the inside, and they’re pushing the envelope and slicing down the weight with their new m17 and m15 laptops!
Dell has been making the Latitude line for quite some time, and they’re intent on keeping it cutting edge for the masses. The latest improvements include a 2-in-1 design, 14″ screen, and LTE!
Making a splash at CES, ASUS debuted a new line of Chromebook products aimed at the Education sector, called the ASUS Chromebook Education series. These ruggedized, classroom-ready laptops feature an ergonomic design and are easily serviced. The line-up includes the first-ever ASUS Chrome OS Tablet, two 11.6” Chromebooks in clamshell and convertible configurations, and a larger 14” clamshell.
Lenovo has held the mantle of the ThinkPad line for years now, and they’ve consistently taken to new levels. The latest L-series ThinkPads are no different, with 8th Generation Intel Processors, fingerprint readers, and affordable price tags!
At this year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in Maui, several major announcements have been made. They were just the tip of the iceberg, however. Today the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Computer Platform, the industry’s first 7 nanometer PC platform, has been revealed. It is clear that Qualcomm is ready to shape the next generation of “always on, always connected” computing.
There’s no need to run around like a turkey with its head cut off: there are plenty of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals available that don’t require getting up at the crack of dawn or standing in any lines — there’s no need to wrestle your chosen item from someone else’s arms, either. Just sit back, relax, and click.
Looking for a thin, powerful laptop that runs Windows? The incredibly shrinking bezels continue with new ASUS ZenBooks, boasting powerful insides and a near-borderless screen.
The only thing more sought-after than cold fusion and alchemy is a tablet/laptop hybrid that actually delivers on the best parts of each. Microsoft laid the groundwork with the Surface line, and now Samsung is jumping in with the Galaxy Book 2, boasting Windows 10, LTE connectivity, and an eye-popping 20 hours of battery life.
The annual IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin covers about 160,000 square meters and almost 2,000 exhibitors. Whether it was on the floor, at a press conference, at the media-only Showstoppers event, or in private meetings, we scoured IFA to find the latest and greatest to make up Gear Diary’s Best of IFA 2018 list.
If you’re in the market for a laptop this fall, you’ll want to pay close attention to what’s coming out of IFA, especially from Lenovo! They’ve got Yoga, Thinkpad, and Chromebook updates, meaning something is likely to fit your needs and your budget.
Dell has been busy pumping out gaming computers lately, they haven’t forgotten those of us who think Super Mario 2 was the height of gaming technology. They’re at IFA this week, and they have a full suite of Inspiron, XPS, and other software and hardware improvements to make it faster and easier to get things done!
Dell and Alienware are at Gamescom 2o18, and they’ve got a slew of announcements designed to remind you why Alienware is synonymous with top of the line PC gaming. There are new monitors, fun new keyboard LED lighting, updated GPUs, new ways to manage peripherals, and an esports academy!
It’s that time again! The kids (or maybe you?) are headed back to school, and that means they’ll need the proper gear. Here’s a round-up of some of our favorite back to school supplies.
