The coolest laptops of 2010's show

While we saw dozens of new laptop models at CES this year, and while the vast majority of them were next-step upgrades of existing models, there were a handful that really grabbed our attention.

LAS VEGAS--We saw dozens of new laptop models at CES this year, and though the vast majority of them were next-step upgrades of existing models, there were a handful that really grabbed our attention, either because they brought something new to the game, or because they were excellent examples of their category.

We've already rounded up the various slate/tablet devices , so we'll concentrate on traditional laptop-shaped systems (although we'll make an exception for the Lenovo U1 Hybrid, which docks its tablet screen to become a standard Windows 7 machine).

Check out the gallery below for shots and details on the laptops that cut through the clutter and caught our eye in Las Vegas at this year's CES.
