The five coolest gadgets of Computex 2012

After trawling through the halls of Computex, we have seen more than our fair share of the latest tech gadgets. You'll have to take our word for it when we say that the following picks are the coolest products at Computex this year.

Acer may have borrowed the idea of a Gorilla Glass lid for its Aspire S7 Ultrabook from HP's Envy 14 Spectre, but the white-clad, ultra-slim laptop is different enough in its own way.

Samsung kept a Windows 8 hybrid tablet under wraps in a glass case at its Computex booth, but we weren't that interested in the Asus Transformer-lookalike. Instead, the convertible tablet version of the Series 5 Ultra looks like it could be an interesting rival to the Lenovo Yoga.

Someone in the office calls it the "Knight Rider" of cases, and with side doors (and a top vent) that open at the touch of button, revealing more cooling fans, the Asus Rog Tytan CG8890 gaming desktop certainly lives up to that nickname. Hitting that button also automatically overclocks the processor, which explains why more ventilation is required.

Gigabyte's super-slim and ultra-light X11 also happens to look like something Batman would use, with its black, carbon-fibre body. Besides weighing less than 1kg, this laptop comes with the latest Intel ultra-low-voltage processor, and a 128GB SSD.

You've got to hand it to Asus; the Taiwanese company certainly knows how to create buzz and anticipation for its press conference with pre-show teaser videos. Despite a slow start — it's hard to make a cloud-computing solution sound sexy — the new Asus products received a warm reception from the media, with the dual-screen Taichi grabbing the headlines.

While it's definitely over the top and probably impractical, it's definitely a great ice breaker for those awkward moments — Asus' chairman Jonney Shih could have used that during his earlier failed demo at the press event.
