With CES 2014 right around the corner, I needed a backpack to carry all of my essentials, daily, for an entire week. Everything else I own is in the form of a sling or messenger bag. Those can be killer on the shoulders for extended periods of time.
With the last shopping season of 2013 in full swing, bargains are to be had left and right. However, some products can be quite gift-worthy without additional price cuts.
First, there was Samsung and Acer. Then HP and Lenovo joined them, followed closely by a product Google made from scratch. And now Asus and Toshiba also want in.
It’s a beautiful day for shopping, despite Thanksgiving and Black Friday being officially behind us, as plenty of renowned retailers have extended their celebratory deals to Cyber Monday. We’ve already rounded up some of Amazon’s best deals with an expiration date and now it’s time to give you the Best Buy skinny.
Black Friday is gone, long live Cyber Monday. After all, who’s in the mood for bargain hunting after gobbling down all that turkey and getting drunk on eggnog life for Thanksgiving?
After a year of whining and bitching and moaning from folks willing to score Microsoft’s Surface tablet (previously known as Surface RT) but reluctant to drop the premiums charged by MS, it’s finally time to put your money where your mouth is.

Have you ever wanted to make your own computer? Maybe you’re like me and you always thought it was far beyond your intellectual capabilities. I mean, my degree was in Literature so I have a feeling my computer engineering skills aren’t top-notch. However, thanks to Kano and Kickstarter, we all might have the chance to feel that moment of accomplishment! You know, that moment where you get to call your little brother and say “I just built a computer! What did you do today?!”
As one of Google’s early Chromebook partners, Acer is quite serious about the nichey Chrome OS-based computing machines, especially as they seem to be making their way towards the mainstream sector of the PC market.
Anyone fancy a little, unpretentious Windows 8 computing machine sans many bells and whistles, but with a full-sized, always attached physical keyboard, very advantageous price point and touchscreen?
Describing Toshiba’s premium Kirabook as an ultrabook for the masses couldn’t be farther from the truth, as the stunning 13-incher has an extravagant $1,300 starting price tag. But if you can afford it, don’t hesitate, don’t budge, don’t overthink it. Just buy it.
Most buying decisions in today’s mobile and computing landscapes may be difficult, almost impossible to make, but if you’re in the market for a large, snappy Android tablet capable of seamlessly turning into a mini-laptop, the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T is hands down the best option. Maybe even the only one that makes sense.
