How time flies. It seemed like it was yesterday when we launched the inaugural Digital Life Awards to recognise and celebrate the best tech products of the year.
There are those who want the features of a smartphone with the convenience of a tablet, because it is not always convenient to lug two gadgets around.
It is too easy to say HTC took the best elements of its HTC One smartphone and just amplified it to deliver the One Max. That would be to ignore the upgrades it came up with for its first phablet.
With a high-resolution 2,560 x 1,600 pixel screen, the Asus Transformer Pad is among the top tablets in terms of pixel density.
A handy 10-inch tablet running a full version of Windows 8.1, the Asus Transformer Book T100 transforms into a laptop once you attach the bundled keyboard dock.
Asus' new flagship ultrabook looks stunning with its illuminated logo, sleek profile and Gorilla Glass lid.
With two Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M graphics chips and a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, the Aftershock Titan is a gaming powerhouse. It even comes with a Thunderbolt port, which makes it versatile enough for professional users.
The Acer Aspire R7 is a convertible laptop with a flexible hinge that allows its 15.6-inch touchscreen to assume four different positions. Fold the screen down and the R7 becomes an oversized tablet. Pull the screen towards you and you can access the touchscreen comfortably and use the keyboard.
The Asus BU400A is a business ultrabook that looks more stylish than the typical enterprise models. Its chassis is made of aluminium, while the lid is reinforced with carbon fibre. The keyboard is tactile, has good key travel and is said to be spill-resistant.
Some may find its design a tad bland, but the Acer Aspire V7 has some high-end touches that elevate it above the usual workhorse laptop. For one, it is svelte for a 14-inch mainstream model and has a gorgeous full high-definition touch-capable display.
It may look like its predecessor, the X100, but it is stuffed with major upgrades.
