Laptops and personal computers are apart of our everyday life of productivity. If you’re like me, you’re starring at your laptop at least 8-10 hours a day (thanks to blogging, my 20/20 vision was gone a long time ago…) We carry our laptops with us to work on the go and attempt additional productivity in our downtime – but did you know there’s a new affordable option, perfect for entrepreneurs, college kids – and a great alternative to expensive MacBook Air models.
Toshiba has launched the Satellite Radius 11, a 2-in-1 convertible with an 11.6” touchscreen that can be used in five different modes – Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. With a starting price of $329.99 MSRP, the unit serves as a versatile, portable and stylish device that can perform everyday tasks for work and play tasks alike.
A unique, 360-degree, two-axis, “flip-and-fold” hinge enables five distinct usage modes: Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. A vibrant 11.6-inch diagonal, HD TruBrite® touchscreen display makes the most of the five viewing modes, giving plenty of room to consume as well as create.
Sleek, slim and lightweight at less than three pounds and topped with a trendy patterned light gold finish, Satellite Radius 11’s compact design makes it easy to carry. Featuring a fanless design, the laptop can be configured with the latest Intel Pentium® or Celeron® processor , up to 4GB of RAM and either 32GB of speedy Flash memory or a spacious 500GB hard drive.

The tablet market continues to grow by leaps and bounds this year, and many new versions were introduced last week at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Some innovations to the tablet are major. Fujitsu’s tablet can be fully submerged in water for up to 30 minutes without any damage, while Lenovo’s tablet can easily be converted into a laptop with double the battery life. Looking for the Tablet best suited for you and your life? Check out a few that caught our eye and discover which tablet is best for you!
5. Fujitsu Arrows
Fujitsu Arrows 10.1-inch tablet, running on Android, can survive a dip in water—and full submersion for up to 30 minutes. The built-in camera can recognize hand gestures for operation even without directly touching the screen. As a result, smooth operation of the tablet PC is possible when preparing food and the user’s hands are not clean, or even when in the bathtub and user’s hands are wet.It has not yet been released in America, but it is being sold in Japan.

4. Lenovo Yoga
Yoga was that it was a fairly standard Lenovo ultrabook, that was until I saw its party trick, which saw the Yoga’s screen folding all the way back on itself to convert into Windows 8 tablet. Folding a notebook PC screen all the way back felt plain wrong and I was waiting to hear the sound of snapping plastic but as a tablet the Yoga felt great in hand and was very light to carry.

3. Sony Tablet S
With two big bonuses outweighing the other tablets on this list….1. Flash enabled and 2. The 9.4″ touch screen, Wi-Fi®, universal IR remote, latest Android™ platform, Sony Entertainment Network with Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited and games for PS Certified devices. For more on the Sony Tablet S, click HERE.
2. Toshiba Excite X10
The Excite, a 10-inch Android tablet, is .3 inches thick and weighs 1.2 lbs. The screen supports a 1280 x 800 resolution and is coated with an anti-smudge surface. Inside, the tablet is running a 1.2 GHz dual-core Texas Instruments CPU and 1GB of RAM. It’s yet to be determined if the Android OS will be Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. For more on the Excite X10, click HERE.
1. Samsung Galaxy Note
It’s pretty much a tablet in terms of size, and it runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), a version of Android built for smartphones. But in my mind its more of a smaller tablet than a larger smartphone. For more on the Galaxy Note, click HERE.
These tablets definitely caught my attention during my time at CES – I’m looking forward to bringing you a detailed user experience with the Sony Tablet S fairly soon. The good people over at Sony provided me with a Sony Tablet S to play with and I’ll be bringing you a play-by-play experience on the device soon…stay tuned…
