Not everyone needs or wants a powerful laptop.

Joining Lenovo ’s newly unveiled business all-in-one PC is another similar model intended for the average family — the maker hails it as a home entertainment option, though it is obviously for more than consuming media.

If you happen to be at the IFA grounds in Berlin, you'll be able to see and maybe get your hands on some of Lenovo's newest products.

Over Christmas, I finally jumped into the MacBook scene and picked up a 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina display. The first thing I thought when I bought it was, “I need to find some sort of case for this expensive laptop!” For the first few months, I carried the laptop in two hands always, and needed a case badly to stop worrying.
Aboard the New Horizons craft as it edges closer to Pluto than we've ever been before is carried the ashes of its discoverer.

For my home office I use an iMac, which normally sits at the wrong height for my posture since I place my keyboard directly on the same surface as where my iMac stands. It would be nice to raise it up a bit, and also add a small USB hub since I only have four usb ports built into my machine.
