The laptop was reinvented at CES.
Or maybe I should say there was a vigorous attempt to reinvent the laptop. Because we won't know how successful touch has been until next year this time.
Intel's CES booth -- still a large presence in the CES Central Hall -- had one basic unmistakable message: touch has arrived.
Windows 8 convertibles, detachables, touch-screen laptops, and just plain tablets from Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Samsung, Acer, Asus, Lenovo, Toshiba, Sony, and others blanketed Intel's booth.
And just to make sure the touch message was crystal clear, Intel issued an edict to PC … Read more
LAS VEGAS--Intel is trying to move its chips from below the keyboard to behind the glass.
In other words, more emphasis on the tablet half of the equation.
Behind the glass: "We believe...detachables are fundamentally different," Adam King, Intel's director of notebook marketing, said in an interview with CNET, referring to laptop designs with displays that can be removed from the base to become standalone tablets.
"The point of differentiation is that the processor is...behind the glass," he said.
"Detachables we think of as a tablet first. Because when you take it … Read more
LAS VEGAS--Spotted at the Samsung booth at CES 2013 was an updated version of the company's Series 5 Ultra, a slim, midpriced ultrabook. Not getting a formal announcement, as the more high-profile Series 7 Ultra and Series 7 Chronos did, the updated Series 5 instead sneaked onto the show floor.
The new Series 5 will add a touch screen and backlit keyboard, and the overall design of the aluminum chassis is thinner, but still thick enough to hold an optical drive. The brushed-metal look is closer to the more expensive Series 7 and Series 9, making this look like … Read more
Archos is fortifying its Elements series with the expansion of the Platinum range of tablets. The Platinum line, currently consisting of a trio of 8-inch, 9.7-inch, and 11.6-inch tablets, stands out due to high resolution IPS screens and specs that promise fast performance.
The three tablets share various features including IPS displays, a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, an 8-core GPU, Android 4.1 OS, 2GB RAM, and front and back cameras. Ports on the tablets include mini-HDMI, microSD, and microUSB. The most obvious thing they have in common is the white, slim design with an aluminum back … Read more
Sony is among the first major TV makers to announce it will sell 4K, aka Ultra High Definition (UHD), televisions in sizes less than 84 inches. The XBR-X900 series, which currently counts a $25,000 84-incher as its sole member, now includes 65-inch and 55-inch sizes, which sell for $4,999 and $6,999 respectively and are available now.
LAS VEGAS--Go big, add touch. Sony's subdued CES formula in a nutshell.
Sony's latest Vaio T Series 15 is a new, larger ultrabook with 1080p, sporting a 10-finger multitouch display. It joins the fray of a seemingly endless run of touch-enabled laptops at this year's CES that continue to be announced with knee-jerk predictability. Sony's also adding a touch-screen option to the Vaio T 14 that's already on sale.
Yes, having touch on a Windows 8 laptop is better than not having touch, but it's hard to get excited at all about its presence … Read more
