Honoring the very best in tech

Last week, we published the results of our Readers' Choice polls, and Part 1 of our Editor's Choice articles, which focuses on the best in consumer electronics products, like digital cameras, smartphones/tablets, 4K TVs, and headphones.

In this third and concluding part, we turn our attention to the best in computing products such as PC components, notebooks, and routers. Also featured in this article are the winners of our Innovation awards category, which is set up to recognize innovative products and cutting-edge technologies that emerged over the past year.

But before that, here's a highlight video and some pictures of the awards ceremony that took place on January 31:
