|CES 2021 Products You Can Actually Buy This Year by pattrkmen: 12:07am On Jan 14|
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium
The annual mega tech show CES is always full of amazing gadgets, but many of them are wild concepts that may be many years from going on sale -- if they ever do at all. But there's also a wealth of products being shown off that you will actually be able to buy soon, if not straight away.
Here then is our roundup of the best tech of CES 2021 that you'll actually be able to buy with your cold, hard cash this year.
First up is Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Titanium. It's the company's thinnest ever convertible device, packing a 13.5-inch display and will be available to order later this month starting at $1,899, which roughly converts to AU$2,460 or £1,400.
Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 2 i
Lenovo's ThinkBook Plus Gen 2 i, meanwhile, packs an E Ink display on the outside of the lid, allowing you to check your calendar or email without needing to open the laptop and waste precious battery power.
It's an interesting idea and is expected to be available sometime in the first quarter of 2021, starting at $1,549.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro
The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds are available now for $130 and offer a lightweight design, decent sound quality and noise canceling that's on a par with Apple's AirPods.
Asus Strix Scar 15
The Asus Strix Scar 15 boasts the fastest display on any gaming monitor, according to Asus, with a 360Hz refresh rate. That makes it a compelling option for hardcore gamers who demand faster displays to keep up with intense gameplay action.
Naturally it packs the latest hardware from Intel or AMD and a wealth of colorful LEDs all over it, because apparently that's what gamers need.
Asus hasn't announced pricing, but the laptop -- together with its larger 17-inch brother -- will be available sometime in the first half of the year.
The Pocketalk translator device can listen to a language being spoken and instantly translate it back to you -- and vice versa. We used it and it works extremely well, and it's been updated for CES 2021 with new languages -- it can translate 82 languages in more than 130 countries and regions.
The Pocketalk S (the company's flagship device) is available now for $299.
Samsung The Frame 2021
Samsung's The Frame TV is the company's attempt to make a wall-mounted TV that looks like you've hung up a beautiful painting, rather than a clunky TV. The new model hasn't had any improvements in picture quality or resolution (it's still a 4K display) but it's physically thinner, which will help achieve the illusion that it's not really a TV at all.
Pricing has yet to be announced but it's due to go on sale later this year.
