We pick the best and the weirdest from GITEX 2012


Best Audio Product : Sonic Chair

Priced around AED 50,000 the Sonic Chair is definitely not an impulse buy even though it really tempts you in. With three speakers and a sub-woofer, you are very much immersed into a sound environment that feels like headphones but a lot more comfortable as nothing is pressing on your ears. Ideal for a home cinema.

Best Laptop : Acer Aspire S7

The super sleek Acer Aspire S7 was on display at Microsoft’s stand with all the other other Ultrabooks. However, it’s a product that gets noticed. With an incredibly thin and beautiful design as well as specs that can match many high-end notebooks and a touch screen, the Aspire S7 could possibly be the best Windows 8 Ultrabook to get.

Best Smartphone : Lumia 920

Not only is Nokia counting on Lumia 920 to bring them back as a major player in the high-end smartphone market but it is possibly Microsoft’s show-off product for their Windows Phone 8 operating system as well. With a beautiful design, solid construction quality and a PureView camera, the Lumia 920 is all set to rock your world.

Best technology: Liquipel

Many of us have sadly fallen victim to liquid getting into our precious smartphones and rendering them useless, but Liquipel is here to save the day. The nano-coating makes your phone water-resistant, so in the event that you accidentally spill something on it, you simple wipe it off and carry on.

Best Display: Sharp 19.5″ Touchscreen

While smartphones and tablets work great with touch displays, laptops and desktops have the challenge of solving ergonomics. With this Sharp 19.5″ display laid on your table, you can easily use it as a desktop with a touch keyboard as well as a fairly large screen for all your apps. All you need is a Windows 8 PC.

Best Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FX-UD7

Perfect match for the new AMD CPUs

Best Graphics Card: Zotac GTX 660Ti AMP! EXTREME Edition


Looking to get some oomph in playing the latest games coming up thise holiday season without breaking the bank. Then grab the Zotac 660Ti AMP! Edition

Best SSD: SanDisk ReadyCache SSD

Craving the boost that SSD gives you but not quite ready to let go of your multi Terrabyte drive? then add a SanDisk ReadyCache drive that acts as a cache for your drive giving you the oomph of an SSD at a fraction of the price.
