Samsung, HP, Toshiba, Lenovo, Asus Show Off PCs for Fall

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Samsung, Hewlett-Packard, Asus, Lenovo, Acer and other top PC manufacturers are gearing up for a busy fall, between consumers' back-to-school tech refresh and businesses beginning to spend again on IT infrastructure. On the consumer side of the equation, manufacturers are hoping that consumers will gravitate toward laptops and desktops with 3D and top-quality audio. For the more business-minded, many new (and sort-of-new) laptops offer a combination of powerful processors and sleek-and-slim form-factors. All these manufacturers used a recent New York City event to show off their current PCs. Among the more unique devices on display: HP's laptop hardware designed to minimize heat, by placing key components under the keyboard and installing larger side-vents; the uniquely curved design of Samsung's NF210; and Asus' Eee PC Lamborghini VX6. Other companies chose to show off their standard-issue, "workhorse" designs—but with the promise that new and interesting technology is in the pipeline.
