The iPhone 5 is thinner, lighter and quicker than its predecessors and competitors, and it now features a 4-inch screen. Individually, none of those features is jaw-dropping, but put them together and the iPhone 5 is very impressive.
The iPad mini costs more than its small-size tablet rivals at $329, but it also delivers a superior experience
Built by LG, Google’s flagship smartphone completely sold out in the U.S. within minutes of going on sale on Nov. 13. The Nexus 4 runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2, the latest version of the Google operating system, and features a 4.7-inch screen with a 1,280 by 768 pixel resolution

Vizio CinemaWide TV: The CinemaWide is a 58-inch HD 3-D TV that stands out because its ultra-wide screen was specifically designed for watching movies, theater style.

The third generation (and later the fourth generation) topped the previous two with better specs all around, including a new retina display
Samsung Galaxy S III: The S III sports a huge 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen offering 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. It’s got 2 GB of RAM and runs on a 1.5-GHz Snapdragon S4 processor — dual-core stateside, quad-core processor elsewhere. The phone comes with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and in either 16-GB or 32-GB models.
Ultra-thin iMac: The new 21.5-inch iMac has a $1,299 base price, features a 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution display, and at its edges, the computer is just 0.2 inches thick.
