MIA laptops at CES 2012: Alienware, Vaio, and others have little to show

One is the loneliest number: the Envy Spectre was HP’s only new laptop at CES 2012. The biggest surprise of CES 2012 is not what we’ve seen here at the show, but what we haven’t. In a radical departure from previous years, several major laptop makers are missing in action, while others are showing off only a single major new product, if anything.

Instead of hosting its usual giant press conference and hotel suites full of products to demo, Dell instead introduced a single laptop, the XPS 13 ultrabook. If it was going to highlight just one laptop, Dell certainly picked the most relevant one, but last year’s CES saw several systems across different categories.

Dell’s sister brand, Alienware, had nothing new to show, despite scoring big at past CES events with systems such as the M11X.

HP likewise stuck to a single major new laptop, the Envy 14 Spectre. It’s an innovative system with a cool design (and our Best of CES winner in the computers and hardware category), but HP’s other new laptops, the revamped Envy 15 and Envy 17, and the Folio 13 ultrabook, had already been released last month.

Toshiba typically has new models spilling from its various Satellite, Qosmio, and Portege laptop lines. But at CES 2012, it only had a single product to show off, an unnamed 14-inch ultrabook prototype.

One of Sony’s Vaio concept designs. Don’t look for this in stores anytime soon.

Also missing in action were new systems from Sony’s Vaio line and anything notable from Asus, a company that typically brings several boundary pushing laptops to Las Vegas. Sony displayed a couple of potential future laptop/tablet prototypes under glass, and Asus brought a single new laptop, a fish-out-of-water Netbook (something that’s kind of hard to get worked up about these days).

Of the major laptop makers that serve the U.S. market, only Lenovo and Samsung came through with traditional full slates of new laptops. Why the lack of new systems? Talking to the various PC makers, a few themes developed. First, the double play of Windows 8 and Intel’s next-gen CPUs is reportedly close, but not reliably dated. Any new products shipping soon face the danger of being outdated in six months, and showing off a laptop that relies on one or both of those new technologies means that full spec details and release dates are impossible to provide.

Second, and more troubling for future CES shows, the big sales seasons for laptops–back to school and the holidays–are increasingly important, but don’t lend themselves well to previewing products six-to-nine months early at a January trade show.

Fortunately, despite not having a high volume of specific new models to talk about, PCs, and laptops in particular, still managed to be the most talked-about part of the show, thanks to Intel’s relentless ultrabook hype. You can catch up on our wrap-up of all the ‘computers and hardware’ category highlights right here.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 vs. ThinkPad Edge E220s

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 and ThinkPad Edge E220s: both slim, both sleek.

Fancy a thin ThinkPad? Lenovo’s venerable ThinkPad brand may seem from a distance to look the same every year, since lately the interesting changes have been made under the surface lately. It’s also a confusing landscape to navigate, even when you know what size you want. Case in point: the ThinkPad X1 and the ThinkPad Edge E220s.

In one sense, they’re completely different laptops. The X1 is a full-powered 13-incher, with a serious professional bent and durable construction. The Edge E220s is a smaller, low-voltage laptop, a 12.5-incher with a more reasonable price tag. And yet, in a number of ways, both ThinkPads are addressing the same market. Both have high-end design features: Dolby sound, updated raised keyboards with comfortable, concave keys, and multitouch clickpads. Both sell their design changes and thinness as advantages. Both choose glossy screens over matte.

Which one’s for you? Let’s compare.

CPU   :  2.5GHz Intel Core i5-2520M   1.4 GHz Intel Core i5-2537M
RAM :  4GB   4GB
Storage  :   320GB, 7,200rpm  320GB, 7,200rpm
Weight  : 3.8 lbs.  3.3 lbs.
Screen size :  13.3 inches   12.5 inches
Battery life :  205 minutes  251 minutes
Price as reviewed :  $1,399  $819 (via current Lenovo promotion)

The ThinkPad X1 is a notable, stylish laptop that’s heavier on durability and performance, but lighter on integrated battery life, portability, and affordability. 3.8 pounds isn’t particularly light, and the longer width of the X1 offsets its sleek angled compactness, making it feel more like a MacBook Pro than a MacBook Air.

The ThinkPad Edge E220s is lighter and has an edge in battery life, plus it’s considerably more affordable. The smaller footprint helps it slip into a bag much more easily, and its dimensions feel more compact. It’s not the modern powerhouse that the X1 is, but it’s a more portable experience.

Which catches your eye? Does battery life matter more than CPU performance? Does price trump all? Sound off in the comments. Which would you choose?

Lenovo ThinkPad X220

Though Lenovo’s upcoming ThinkPad X220 ultraportable sports a powerful CPU and plenty of RAM, its potential battery life may be the biggest lure.

Lenovo's ThinkPad X220 ultraportable

The X220 isn’t on sale just yet, but Lenovo is providing an in-depth glimpse at its specs thanks to an online PDF. The details confirm that the notebook can run without AC power for up to 23 hours on a single charge via a slim external battery pack. But even without that external battery, the unit is capable of a still healthy 15 hours on its standard 9-cell battery.

Lenovo also says that a low power multimedia mode can boost battery life by 30 percent, while users can opt for either higher performance or better battery life through the unit’s Turbo Boost+ mode, which builds upon Intel’s built-in Turbo Boost feature.

Aside from the battery life, the X220 sports some other powerful specs. Using Intel’s latest and now bug-free Sandy Bridge Second Generation architecture, Lenovo offers a choice of an i7, i5, or i3 processor. The 12.5-inch high-definition LED backlit display provides a resolution of 1366×768 with an option for in plane switching, a feature that promises better viewing at wider angles.

And as an ultraportable, the X220 weighs in at less than 3 pounds, according to Lenovo.

The machine can handle up to 8GB of RAM and provides a choice of either a conventional hard drive with a capacity as high as 320GB or an SSD with as much as 160GB of storage space.

Rounding up the list of features are three USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port available with the i7 processor, a 720p high-definition Webcam, and an Intel Wi-Fi/WiMax adapter. Lenovo also offers some of its usual features, such as a fingerprint reader as well both a trackpad and the familiar red trackpoint.

Lenovo hasn’t yet revealed when the X220 will make its way to consumers or what it’ll cost, but we’ve reached out to the company to see if it can share any further details.
