CES Top 5

Now that we have had some time to digest the news out of CES we are ready to award our top 5 for this years show. Some you have heard about, and some may be a little different look into the future. One thing is for sure, these are the things we want.

5. Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga Ultrabook

This is coming late this year with Windows 8 and the Yoga is a look into the future of computing. The Yoga designation refers to its infinitely adjustable screen with its myriad of settings allowing the Yoga to be a laptop, a pad on a stand, or a tablet with the screen all the way back. The touchscreen features ten point touch and the Windows 8 loaded on it was fantastic. When it’s flipped and used as a tablet, the keyboard deactivates, so it can be placed on a flat surface or used on the go without worrying about hitting a key. The problem lies in its $1200 price tag as it is going to have to compete with two devices at that price and its unclear whether having one device is going to make it worth it.

4. Swiss Army Knife 1TB USB Drive

It’s pretty useless, but still very cool to fit a terabyte into a flash drive along with hardware and software encryption. Not only that its got a blade, scissors and a nail file. For traveling it also comes with a case without the implements. The catch… It comes with a price tag of 3 grand.

3. Parrot AR.Drone 2.0

Maybe the coolest thing we saw the entire show this 300.00 helicopter with its 720p video camcorder is the thing we want now. Thankfully it will be available in the second quarter. With its Android and iOS apps to control it we can envision some fantastic shots and video from 15 feet up.

2. Everything Vizio

Vizio got our pick for the best company at the show as they showed off beautiful new laptops, desktops, and a 10 inch tablet. Vizio worked directly with Microsoft on development and these things look like something out of Cupertino, not a budget television maker. The screens look fantastic with all but the smallest notebook boasting 1080p screens and the desktops have a HDMI pass-through so they can be used as a HDTV when the computer is off. Talk about the perfect dorm room setup. Prices are not released yet, but said to be unbelievably low

The 14 inch laptop won PCWorlds best laptop award even and for a new maker that is an amazing achievement.

1. OLED TV’s from Samsung and LG

It’s hard to explain just how good this technology looks in person. These things are razor thin, like iPhone thin in a 55 inch screen and the color saturation and unlimited contrast make an unbelievable difference from today’s technology. It is literally like looking out a window. The rumored price point is around 8-10,000.00 for the 55 inch versions which although out of price range today, expect these prices to drop precipitously over the next 2 years.
