Yesterday, Jan. 8, The Consumer Electronic Show kicked off with a bang. For those of you always seeking to have the latest items, whether they be tablets, laptops, or cell phones the Electronic Show in Las Vegas offers a great variety of items. This is definitely a can not miss event.
Pity the poor laptop.
The darling of the tech world just a couple of years ago, laptops have become one of the biggest casualties of the tablet phenomenon. For consumers enamored of touch-screen tablets, laptops suddenly seem like stale, clunky gadgets whose basic clamshell design hasnít changed all that much in two decades.
It opens. It shuts. Yawn.
But this week at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the laptop is attempting a comeback. The stodgy clamshell is being cast aside by manufacturers who are trying to create a new category of device that combines the feel and functions of tablets and laptops.
