While only a few were running Windows 8, we found quite a few laptops decking the halls of Computex.

In many situations, it was a case of old laptop, new Ivy tricks. But there's plenty of new bling to go around, as well, with release dates ranging from mid-June all the way through to October to coincide with the launch of the new version of Windows.

While we don't have full details for everything, we'll post what we know about them so far. Have a browse — one of these could very well be your next laptop.

Check out more stories from Computex 2012.
