BMW introduces the 2016 7 Series, the top of its lineup, redesigned with carbon fiber in the body structure and a new touchscreen, gesture-controlled iDrive system.
The following cars represent the most technically advanced available.
Samsung's midprice Series 5 UltraTouch looks and feels like a more expensive machine, but keeps it simple by skipping the complex hybrid mechanics of so many new Windows 8 systems.
With the recent emphasis on better materials and design across all laptop segments, the gaudy, plastic Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 delivers decent performance, but not a look to match.
Although a tech powerhouse, in some ways the hybrid system in the 2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 7 feels like a novelty. It adds power and fuel efficiency, but also adds quirks to everyday driving. Cutting-edge cabin tech features are available in all 7-series models.
Although the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe doesn't come up to the performance standards of BMW's other M cars, it still offers lots of power and handles very well. A comfortable ride and cabin tech options make it a solid daily driver.
