Must-Read: Technology Upgrades of 2014
The world of technology moves pretty quickly. In fact, by the time we finish typing this, it wouldn’t surprise us if the world has moved on from this weird concept of “The Internet” and into whatever the next step is going to be. (The Outernet?) And so, if you want to stay ahead of the curve in regards to what is new and exciting and the latest gadget to have, you have to not only have the big bucks, but know just what to purchase.
And so today we’re heading over to AskMen.com, where they have a list of the best items that are going to be coming into the tech world this year, that are going to make 2014 so much better than last year. Among the pieces of advice they’re giving us to upgrade on:
2013: Razer Edge
2014: Thinkpad 8
After years of tablets growing, shrinking and then shrinking even more, the sweet spot for screen sizes lies somewhere between 7″ and 9″. Which is apt, given Lenovo’s Thinkpad 8 is a perfectly proportioned 8″ — but it’s not like other tablets in this middling category.
Boasting an 8.3 inch, 1920×1200 display screen, up to 128GB of memory and the option of bolting on more extras (like keyboards) than the competition, it’s the perfect option for those looking for an alternative to an iPad.
There’s also 8 hours of battery run time, 2GB worth of RAM, ports for microSD, micro USB and micro HDMI, meaning it can easily double up as a laptop if you need it to. There’s also a clever magnetic cover, that allows you to activate the camera simply by lifting the corner covering the rear camera. Clever.
Head on over to the link to check out all the rest of the latest tech upgrade news. And then get on out there and start buying some new stuff and change the way your life works.
