LG also wowed attendees at CES. Like Samsung, LG showed off both an Ultra HD and OLED televisions. LG also revealed bendable televisions, a top-of-the-line In-Plane Switching (IPS) monitor and Smart Home products. LG was a prolific new product exhibitor at this year's show.

Although Asus once committed its entire future to netbooks, at CES 2013, the company redirected its operation to focus on Windows 8 tablets and notebooks. The move was successful. The computers Asus showed off were sleek and well-built, and will likely appeal to folks looking for nice features in an affordable package.

Nvidia had a hugely successful CES. The company finally revealed its Tegra 4 quad-core processor and noted several devices that are running it. Nvidia also announced a portable-gaming device, known as Shield, which will play both Android and PC games. Nvidia is also getting into tablets with a slate of its own. It should be interesting to see how its hardware push turns out.

Toshiba, of course, showed off some televisions at CES this year, but perhaps its most notable offerings were Windows 8 PCs. The company's Qosmio X875, for example, offers high-end graphics performance, a great design and full support for the latest 3D games. It'll be a nice addition to the Windows 8 marketplace.

Dish Network

Dish Network might not seem like an obvious choice for CES best-in-class, but the company earned it this year with the updated Hopper DVR. That product will allow users to record prime-time programming, and then stream all that over the Web. This feature can also transfer recordings to the iPad.

Vizio is perhaps best known for its televisions, but the company also joined the parade of Windows 8 PC introductions with a 14-inch touch-enabled laptop, an 11.6-inch tablet and a 24-inch all-in-one PC. It's nice to see Vizio thinking outside the box.

Panasonic's business might be in shambles, but the company wowed CES attendees by announcing a 20-inch, Intel-based Windows 8 tablet. This slate will be ideal for marketers and photographers, Panasonic says, but it might also set off a new trend in the Windows 8 tablet space. Let's hope so.

Hewlett-Packard needed to show off something special at CES this year, and the company delivered. HP unveiled a wide array of Windows 8 PCs, but also showed off an Ultrabook that can be converted to a tablet. It should be a nice option for enterprise users, especially.
