HP Spectre x360

The latest HP hybrid offering lands with a large 15-inch screen and a 360-degree hinge, and boasts a 4K-resolution display.

Razer Blade Stealth

Razer's latest machine, the Blade Stealth, doesn't just have a cool name -- it also packs a punch. The laptop sports a 12.5-inch display, lands with a super-high definition display, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory, and 128GB of solid-state storage in a rigid casing. It's remarkably light at 2.75 pounds, and comes with an RGB-backlit keyboard -- because why not?

Samsung Galaxy TabPro S

The tablet nobody expected: Samsung dropped this 12-inch, Windows 10-powered tablet at the end of a keynote on the second press day. Sporting a super-bright AMOLED screen and a sixth-generation, Intel Core M3 (dual-core) processor, it still manages to be thinner and lighter than an iPad Pro -- making it an attractive grab for the enterprise. No word on pricing though. It's set to land in the US later in the first calendar quarter.

It's at the mid-range price of the high-end specs, landing at $1,099, and will be available in March in the US.

Intel Compute Stick

It's the PC on a stick that got even better. The non-traditional, experimental but super-portable PC still fits in your pocket and plugs right into a display's HDMI port, but now it packs a faster Intel Atom processor, two USB ports for a keyboard and mouse, and faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity. The PC stick lands at just $159 in the US.

HP EliteBook Folio G1

HP's EliteBook gives Apple's 12-inch MacBook a "run for its money," says our sister site CNET. Tailored towards the small-business users and corporate IT users, it sports a high-resolution 4K display, includes a newer second-generation Intel Core M processor, and has a display that can perform a 180-degree flip, letting it lie flat on a table. It's also tested to pass military-grade testing for ruggedness, making it a tougher-than-most laptop.
