Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2

Your favorite e-reader just received an impressive update, in the form of Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite 2 ($120). While it still has everything you loved about the first Paperwhite — a glare-free display for easy reading in direct sunlight, eight weeks of battery life, built-in WiFi and free 3G, and Amazon's generous selection of books — the update gives readers an even better experience. Its new display features higher contrast, with whites so white and blacks so black it feels almost like reading a book, while a built-in light helps prevent eyestrain at night. A faster processor, more accurate touch response, Goodreads integration, and more make this a worthwhile purchase, especially if you're still flipping old-fashioned pages. Available this month.

  • Wikipad

    The name is a little confusing — it has absolutely nothing to do with Wikipedia, Wikilinks, or any other traditional Wiki, as far as we can tell — but that doesn't mean the Wikipad ($250) isn't worth a look. Built with gaming in mind, the Wikipad features a 7-inch HD screen, a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with quad-core GPU, a built-in gyroscope, compass, and accelerometer, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage with a MicroSD slot for expansion, GPS, and built-in stereo speakers. The biggest feature, however, is the detachable game controller that gives you a proper D-pad, dual analog sticks, and Playstation Mobile certification.

  • Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC

    Upset that you missed a chance to buy one of Microsoft's Big Ass Tables? You can come close with the new Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC ($1,700). Sporting a 27-inch display, it's designed to lie flat on nearly any surface, letting two or more people use the screen at the same time. Obviously, it comes running Windows 8, and comes pre-loaded apps and games like Monopoly, FilmOn TV, Stagelight, and more. Pair it with the Multimode Table for the ability to use like, you know, an actual PC.
