Ultrabooks: The Next Big Thing in 2012

Saturday, January 07th, 2012

One of the top tech items at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show will be the Ultrabook, a super lightweight laptop that’s no more than one inch thick – the size of a netbook but with the power of a full operating system and a price tag under $1,000.  Several Ultrabooks made their debut in 2011 and even more are expected to go on sale in 2012.  They will compete with tablet computers by offering more processing power and a built-in keyboard.

One of the current top Ultrabooks is the Toshiba Portege.  It weighs in at less than 2.5 lbs, has an ultra-slim 0.6″ profile is starts at about $800.  Find out more about the Portege on the Toshiba website.

CES 2012

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

The Consumer Electronics Show is without a doubt one of the biggest annual events in the world of technology.  CES 2012 will be held January 10-13, when thousands of companies and tens of thousands of participants will gather in Las Vegas to get up close and personal with the latest offerings from large and small electronics retailers.  There are always bound to be a few surprises, but show attendees can expect to see innovative products in the areas of smartphones, tablets, laptops, digital cameras and HDTVs. 

Interestingly enough, e-book readers are not expected make a strong showing like they did in 2009.  The niche is currently dominated by a handful of players who are holding steady with no major product announcements expected. 

CES 2012 should also be expected to highlight automotive and household technology.  Thanks to wireless networking, smartphones are becoming more integrated with consumers’ cars and homes.
