Sony bills its Xperia Tablet Z as the world's thinnest 10.1" tablet, an eye-catcher that was recently named the Best Power Performer Android tablet by Good Housekeeping magazine. Its uniqueness, however, doesn't stop there.

When bundled as the Kitchen Edition, the white 32GB, Android-powered tablet brings cooking into the 21st century, starting with a durable glass, carbon-fiber reinforced back panel that can easily withstand the roughest countertop treatment.

The slate's vivid HD display, powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, delivers enhanced color reproduction for a brilliant HD TV-like viewing experience.

The unit is also water-resistant! Spills and sticky fingerprints can be easily rinsed away under a running faucet or by submerging the unit in up to 3 feet of fresh water (for up to 30 minutes, provided all ports and covers are firmly closed.) 

Foodies can also find daily meals, organize shopping lists, and discover tips and tricks with pre-loaded cooking apps. Over 260 classic recipes from around the world are preloaded, plus a how-to video series provided by Saveur, a popular magazine for cooking enthusiasts.

Also included are $115 worth of accessories, including the iGrill from iDevices, an app-enabled Bluetooth meat thermometer that allows cooking temperatures to be monitored from up to 200 feet away.

Sony's Xperia Tablet Z: Kitchen Edition sells for $649 at Sony retailers or online at Sony.com.

Who says a classy, touch-screen Ultrabook has to cost $1000?

Believing that today's consumers have a hard time choosing between a laptop or a tablet, Lenovo has introduced the IdeaPad U430 Touch notebook, a touch-screen Ultrabook that offers the full Windows 8 touch experience and is nothing short of a bargain.

For starters, the notebook is very thin (only 0.77 inches thick) and loaded with advanced features, such as motion control, voice control, and 10-point capacitive multi-touch.

Since it is a genuine Ultrabook, processor options include new power-conserving, 4th generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 "Haswell" models. NVIDIA GeForce graphics and advanced hybrid storage are also available.

You can go for up to 10 hours between charges and enjoy rich stereo sound, thanks to its Dolby Home Theater v4 audio. Tipping the scale at 4.2 pounds, the unit also boasts a sleek metal exterior, 1600 x 900 HD+ screen resolution, and a flawless AccuType backlit keyboard. 

The list of standard equipment also includes 802.11 b/g/n WiFi wireless connectivity, wired Ethernet, an integrated 720p HD webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 2.0 ports and one super-speed USB 3.0 port.

Equipped with a fourth generation Intel Core i5 CPU processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64-bit Windows 8, the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch notebook starts at $699. For more information, visit Lenovo.com.
