The 2014 Consumer Electronics Show is underway and eager tech makers are revealing their latest, greatest wares. Just check out Lenovo. The major PC multinational’s newly announced gadgets range from a set of Windows 8.1 tablet-hybrids with versatile keyboard docks to a quad-core, 5.5-inch LTE smartphone, a first for the company. Not to mention, the all-new Lenovo Y40 and Y50, two lighter-than-ever gaming notebooks. Speaking of feather-weight gamers, MSI got in on that action as well. That laptop-maker invited us to preview a 15-inch gaming notebook that could be the lightest fragger in the world. To learn where, when, and for how much you can get your hands on all of the above and more, check out our Day 1 wrap-up from CES 2014.
One of our favorite business Ultrabooks gets new specs for the new year. A unique touch-sensitive strip replaces the Carbon X1’s function row and -- get this -- it adapts to the active application. For example, the music app activates back, forward, pause and play buttons, and Skype displays mic and video controls. There’s also a WQHD IPS display option with a super-rich, 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution, and, thanks to Intel Core Series processors, a shot at 9+ hours of battery life. That’s not even the full list of this all-new system’s capabilities, either.
