The MSI table had a lot to show off at the recent CES. There were two new lines of laptops, the X-Slim series, which bears a strong resemblance to the Macbook Air. Thanks to the 8 cell battery, you can expect up to 10 hours of run time before you run out of juice. The G series is the polar opposite, weight and battery life are sacrificed in order to make these notebooks attractive to gamers. Breaking 10,000 in 3DMark06 isn't top shabby for a notebook. Think Computers also saw so

Reporting 'live, as it happens', especially at an electronics trade show, does have some drawbacks. You benefit from the feeling of being there and capturing the moment and get to see a lot of cool new kit for the first time without waiting for a full write up. That quickness does tend to make the reporting a little more shallow since there simply isn't time to full cover all the details. Ars Technica has revisited a lot of what they covered at CES in a more indepth fashion, which you can see h

One of the biggest headaches for tech innovation right now has to be the economic downturn. Not just because their own jobs may be in danger but also because buying new luxury items really isn't at the top of most people lists. The gang at CES 2009 is soldiering on regardless, bringing all the newest toys, gadgets and tools to show off.

Think Computers had a chance to drop by the CES before CES, known as the Digital Experience. It's a slimmed down version of CES, where the represented companies only show off the newest, as yet unseen products, leaving the already announced items for CES proper.

ASUS definitely isn't sitting on its hands with this whole "Eee" branding thing. While we have in the past poked fun at the company's desire to put the Eee moniker on just about ANYTHING they could paint white, at CES yesterday ASUS showed off quite a few interesting new products in various stages of development. The most exciting was probably the Eee Keyboard PC - a fully functioning computer in a stylized keyboard that has an iPhone-sized touch pad on the right hand side where the number pad would usually be located. The back of the unit has connections like Ethernet, DVI/V

Ryan published a summary of NVISION08 yesterday, covering the highlights of the show and going into much more depth that he had time to do while experimenting with liveblogging. There was one big announcement that didn't make it into that article, because nVIDIA had been keeping it under their hats, ready to be pulled out when everyone was getting ready to leave.
