In Pictures: 11 tech products we couldn't live without

For these products, we truly give thanks

Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch PCWorld Senior Editor Michael Brown:

I’m thankful IDG’s IT department let me pick my own work computer. IDG is a Lenovo shop, and I guess the standard laptop is a Lenovo Twist. At least two of my colleagues got one, and they’ve been complaining about them ever since.

I asked for—and received—a Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch. It’s been a joy to use on a daily basis, and it travels extremely well. I barely notice this Ultrabook's weight on my shoulder as I take mass transit to and from the office, and when I travel on business.

The X1 Carbon Touch would be even better with a super power-efficient Haswell processor, but that’s another story.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
