Visitors will be able to see at the next year’s CES inexpensive laptops, new versions of convertibles, and interesting small desktops.

Every new CES brings big advancements in the computer world. The latest laptops are light, slim and have more powerful batteries. All new Windows PCs include touch screens, necessary with the Windows 8. We live in the world of hybrids, where devices shift from tablet to laptop and back.

Visitors are used to seeing revolutionary new trends at previous CES, such as touch screen, ultrabooks, tablets and hybrids. Unfortunately, it seems that this CES does not have a single groundbreaking exhibit. What we can expect are mostly refinements and improved and more affordable technology.

Chromebooks are still largely untested, but are already selling well because of great prices. The time will tell if this Google OS will catch on, since the new system requires serious adjustments.

Hybrids and convertibles will probably come to CES in different forms than earlier hybrids. Some will be laptops with screens that could be detached, or could slide, fold or bend. What the experience shows is that the most successful hybrids are those similar to Yoga by Lenovo, which allow users to transform them, but which keep recognizable shape of laptop.

Desktop PCs, living room PCs and Steambox

There is no much change in the world of desktop PCs: they have already morphed into a computer and monitor in one package. Apple is the only one to come with an original idea: Mac Pro.

Besides PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game consoles,  there is nothing new in the living room computing. One hope is Valve's Steambox. It is a piece of hardware the size of a console connected to a TV. It uses a special controller that makes it a combination of a PC and console gaming. It can play all sorts of games using Valve’s own OS called Steam. Steambox has a good chance of reclaiming living rooms from the game paraphernalia such as consoles.
