Welcome to the second edition of the Week in Review of 2011. This week was CES 2011 so we have tons of cool new gear to talk about. One of the coolest DIY projects I have ever seen is the Return of the Jedi lightsaber made by Bradley Lewis. He made the thing out of machined aluminum parts and it has a removable blade.
What a week! While a few of us on the R3 crew were rolling around in different parts of the world that weren't Vegas, the bulk were rolling hard at CES 2011! The Consumer Electronics Show had blasts of this, slips of that, and a wacky array of stories and happenings that shall forever go down in the history books as a CES to be clicked with! How ever in the world will we organize all of this information? How about one big monster of a list of links, for starters? Who could we call for such a tast, hm? So much exclusive content, so much time time - I know! The Daily Slash! Get one of the biggest heaping helpings you've ever seen, below!
This isn't the first and it isn't going to be the last roundup post of CES news and info for this season. It's one big thwack. Comb with me, if you will, through the content and devour the ingredients. Joy! PREVIEW: my favorite is the Notion Ink Adam hands-on at CES 2011 - wowie!
Netbooks made their typical strong showing this week, with ASUS announcing their intention to put 3G HSUPA into the Eee PC 901. Meanwhile their N10 was reviewed and deemed the first netbook "suitable for serious gaming", a promising title indeed. Lenovo's S10 also hit reviewers' benches, making a strong - if at times warm - case for the smallest IdeaPad, while Packard Bell unveiled their 'dot', targeted much more at the budget end of the scale. They'll have a fight on their hands, though; SlashGear reviewed the Acer Aspire One this week too, and when it comes to value for money it's a tough one to beat.
