CES is always the tech show of the year for gadget lover and tech followers. On Monday, lots of new Windows devices that highlight the power of Windows debuted from manufacturers around the world, and prove to a great 2014 ahead. Tablets, laptops and more are ahead for 2014.
The number of new devices available for Windows in 2014, and especially the Windows 8.1 operating system are staggering by numbers. A lot of these devices were announced for future release, but show that manufacturers are looking at Windows 8.1 as a huge revenue stream for 2014.
Touchpad For The Enterprise
One of the more interesting Windows tablets that was announced by Panasonic was the Toughpad FZ-M1, which is a tablet built for the enterprise. It is powered by the latest generation processor and built for the rugged enterprise life. It has long battery life, and has Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit on board.
The Toughpad FZ-M1 has a 4th generation Intel Core i5 vPro on board and is built with a 7″ daylight-readable 1200×800 screen. The unit has a 128GB SSD onboard with a 256GB SSD optional, and 8GB of RAM. It weighs only 1.2LB, and is only 0.7″ thick. A long battery life built with the specs that can last all day make this a device for Windows 2014.

Other 2014 laptops featuring Windows 8.1 were also announced. Toshiba announced a new 4k mobile workstation that will allow movie and film editors to edit 4k videos on the go, and give future YouTube videomakers a powerful Windows 8.1 laptop. It has ultra HD graphics and a system that is perfect for graphic professionals.
