IN PICTURES: 8 most interesting tech gadgets of 2013

There may be some mind-blowing new gadgets that come out in time for the holiday gift buying season, but here’s a list of the eight most significant tech gadgets released to date.

Chromebook Pixel Released: Feb. 21, 2013

It was thought that Chromebooks were meant to take over the bygone netbook market, serving as cheap and low-powered machines, but which run Chrome OS. Yet when the Pixel suddenly appeared for sale, it totally defied this conventional wisdom. This Googled-branded notebook isn’t cheap, starting at $1,299, because it packs powerful specs and a touchscreen in a sleek case design.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
