Dell XPS 12
Dell Computer's XPS 12 remids me of the Olympics -- gymnastics, specifically. That's because its screen rotates within its frame, so you can put it in nearly any position imaginable for showing the screen to others. There's nothing else like it. But as my colleague Serdar Yegulalp has discovered in his hands-on use, it's easy to pinch your finger between the frame and screen as you move the screen. (His fingers show the contusions!)
