The Stream is a budget "cloud-based PC," now available in two new laptop and two new tablet sizes, making it one of the least expensive ways to get Windows 8.
With picture quality that outdoes that of numerous more-expensive TVs, Vizio's E series likely represents the best value of 2014.
We really liked the picture quality-to-performance propositions of Vizio's 1080p resolution M-series and E-series TVs, and after going eyes-on with the new P-Series, shipping now, we expect great things.

Excellent picture quality, well thought-out features and distinctive design make the Vizio M-Series seem like a much more expensive TV than it really is.
HP's Stream series expands with new clamshells and tablets, from $99 or £100.
Despite picture quality that's just average, the Samsung UNH6350's high-end features and design for a midrange price will win plenty of converts.
For those in need of an inexpensive thin-and-light laptop for home or school (but not necessarily the thinnest or lightest), the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series is worth putting on your list despite its imperfections.
If you can stand its speakers, Sony's XBR-X900B will reward you with the best combination of audio and video quality you've ever seen (or heard).
The Sony KDL-W800B series is a classy television with excellent color and shadow detail, but in pure bang-for-buck terms, its black level can be bettered for much less.
The Panasonic AS530 series LCD ain't no plasma, but it offers attractive design and decent image quality for a budget price.
