Palit’s GeForce GTS 450 Low Profile is one of the most innovative graphics cards we have seen for quite a while. It may not be blazing fast, but Palit has successfully squeezed a GeForce GTS 450 chip into a tiny and compact low profile form factor which makes it ideal for HTPC setups or small form factor casing applications.

 

The Acer GD235HZ was one of the first full HD 3D display in the market and is aimed at the mainstream crowd. 23-inch large, the GD235HZ features a 120 Hz refresh rate, thus making it an ideal companion for NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Vision kit.

 

The latest flagship to Cooler Master’s popular “High Air Flow” line-up, the HAF X is also the best. Ultra spacious, fantastic cooling options, USB 3.0 ready, and interesting features such as a VGA air duct and VGA bracket ensure that this is one of the more outstanding casings we have seen all year.

 

iTwin is by far the easiest way we have seen to enable remote file access between two computers: just plug one half of the iTwin into the USB port on each computer. It has nothing to do with the 'cloud' as the data still resides on your computer. Heck, it does not even store any data on itself. Just imagine it like a data teleportation device. So cool, it is like magic.

 

Being the manufacturer of the Google Nexus S, it is not surprising that HTC presented a similar Android device under its own name. This brings us to the HTC Desire, a device that shares similar hardware features to the earlier Nexus One, but enhanced on the software aspect with the updated HTC Sense. HTC also brought forth a tighter integration of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook onto the Android platform, a feature that soon became a norm on future smartphones.

 

Loaded with an SSD drive, the 11-inch MacBook Air is the newest addition to the Apple family and remains a very thin notebook to lust after. Perhaps it is just the Apple Reality Distortion Field at work, but this is one notebook that you likely cannot help but be drawn to with your wallets out and ready to buy.

 

For many, the Nikon D7000 is a dream come true. Its strong and weatherproof body lets you take it almost anywhere with peace of mind, its capable resolution and high sensitivity lets you shoot against most situations, and its dual SD slots mean you can double your storage or even create backups right as you are shooting. 

 

How does an average 165.91 MB/sec write speed under RAID 5 configuration and 197.8 MB/sec read speed sound to you? Quite awesome, we would say. This is the performance the Synology DS1511+ offers. Using VMware, Hyper-V or Citrix virtualization technologies? No problem. You would be glad to know that the DS1511+ supports iSCSI too. And with support for Windows ADS and ACL, by now you should know that this network attached storage (NAS) means business.

 

The ASUS ARES deserves the nod to be on our list not only because it is the fastest single graphics card in the world, but also the biggest and heaviest. The massive triple slot custom cooler makes extensive use of aluminum and copper, and the cards tips the scales at a massive 2.1 kg. In all, the ASUS ARES was designed for graphics connoisseurs who can appreciate the amount of engineering that went into making this card of, literally, epic proportions.

 

A service that comes free with some of HP's latest home and office printers, ePrint gives each printer an individual email address and lets you print documents simply by emailing it. It is easily one of the most innovative and useful feature to come to printers in years.
