Hardware, Embedded Systems The news I've seen coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this year isn't particularly breathtaking or awe-inspiring. Phones, tablets, faster, thinner, yes, yes, we've all been here before. There is one piece of news, however, that stands out from the crowd. The best-selling TV maker in the US, Vizio, is entering the PC market. Stunning designs for both laptop and all-in-one - and buried deep within the press release lies the creamy nougaty centre that makes me want to buy one even more: a Windows 7 install optimised by Microsoft, free of crapware.

The thing is, minimalism sells.


True, but you can do minimal and still have your own style. I'm disappointed that so many companies choose to copy Apple's products instead of having a little soul (looking at you Samsung).

As said above, try to take a look at what Asus are doing. In my view of aesthetics, they make some of the prettiest computers out there, yet do not blindly follow Apple's designs. They try a lot of new things, which one may like or not, and they attempt to satisfy a much larger user base than Apple.

Ironically, I believe they also used to manufacture Apple's laptops at some point.

My last two laptops were Asus. Quite nice.
