CES Show recap

Just a quick review and recap of some other noteworthy stuff from the last CES show. I have already written about AMD and NVidia, but that was not the end all and be all of the show. Here is a list of some other products and manufacturers.

Lenovo Yoga S940

Lenovo showed off a swathe of great new Yoga laptops at CES 2019, and one favorite is the well-built Yoga S940. It’s a wonderfully slim and light laptop with a Contour Glass display that comes in up to 4K resolution with HDR and Dolby Vision support.

Built out of aluminum, it weighs 2.64 pounds and is just 0.48 inches (12.2mm) thick, and comes with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage.

The Lenovo Yoga S940 goes on sale May 2019, starting at $1,499 U.S.

Acer Swift 7

Acer impressed umany at CES 2019 by somehow making its teeny Swift 7 laptop somehow even smaller and lighter.

In its aim to make the ‘world’s thinnest laptop’, Acer’s flagship Ultrabook for 2019 is just 9.95mm (0.39 inches) thin and weighs in at just 890 grams (1.96 pounds).

Meanwhile, a smaller chassis allows the Acer Swift 7 to shrink the bezels even more this year around, achieving a screen-to-body ratio of 92%.

It’s still a sturdy laptop, though, with a chassis made of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys. Acer claims that these materials are two to four times tougher than regular aluminum, while also being up to 35% lighter. Thin, light and powerful – there’s a lot to be impressed with on the new Acer Swift 7, and it’s one of the best laptops seen at this year’s CES.

LG gram 17

Speaking of thin and light laptops, LG wowed many as well with the LG gram 17, an incredibly light 17-inch laptop that weighs just 1.3kg – which is lighter than many other smaller laptops. You’re not going to see another 17-inch laptop that’s this light in 2019.

Its 16:10 display has a “2K” resolution of 2,560 x 1,600, and packs a Whisky Lake Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, Thunderbolt 3, SSD storage and even ports such as a microSD reader that thicker laptops don’t include.

It will go on sale for $1,700 (U.S. later this year.

Alienware Area-51m

The Alienware Area-51m is another innovative gaming laptop at CES 2019 which does something new. Unlike other gaming laptops, the Area-51m allows its processor and graphics card to be upgraded, making it a future-proof laptop that will be playing games for years.

It answers one of our biggest complaints with gaming laptops – the lack of upgradability – and it does so with Dell’s customary high built quality and attractive design. I have been looking into this and may add one to my shopping list.

LG Signature Series OLED TV R (OLED65R9)

At one time, seeing a TV appear out of thin air would have been something straight out of a magic act. But LG’s new rollable Signature Series OLED TV R isn’t magic – it’s engineering and display technology taken to the nth degree. While some other 2019 TVs can do 8K and sit flush on the wall, only the 65R9 harnesses OLED’s natural flexibility to roll up on itself when you’re done watching it. Tech Geeks beware is contagious.. Panasonic GZ2000 4K OLED TV Just like the Las Vegas strip itself, the TVs of CES 2019 have been all about the glitz. Whether it’s 8K resolutions or rollable displays, the ‘wow’ factor may have been upped, but there’s a sense that it’s been a game of spec-chasing and headline-baiting. The Panasonic GZ2000 4K OLED, on the other hand, is a pure movie-lover’s dream – there are no gimmicks here, just a commitment to the best possible picture quality.
