In Pictures: In the rough post-PC seas, Intel fights back

A new set of chips promises to power everything from wearables to high-end PCs

Coming in 2014: 14nm "Broadwell" Although Samsung and IBM are also working on the technology, Intel is first to make it happen. "It" is the 14-nanometer chip, a huge jump in shrinking chips that many thought was not possible to accomplish, especially as the previous leap to 22nm chips got to market just two years ago.

But Intel says its "Broadwell" Core SoCs (systems-on-a-chip) will come to market next year, powering computers, tablets, and so on. Not only are they smaller, they use 30 percent less power than today's best chips, and they support new capabilities like 3D imaging.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
