LAS VEGAS—Thin is in at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), where a variety of PC manufacturers have introduced netbooks, smartbooks, ultra-thins and tablet PCs designed to provide a maximum of functionality with the smallest form-factor. While tablet PCs have dominated many discussions here, netbooks remain a substantial force within the industry, having been one of the few bright spots in PC sales in 2009. This eWEEK product gallery shows some of the ultra-portable devices attracting interest at CES; and details some of the newly announced initiatives, such as Intel's AppUp Center, that could help attract new users to the segment.
