Best of Comdex

Comdex, the world’s largest information technology exposition, brings together corporate buyers, decision makers, specialists, and technology leaders in an exciting, carnival-like environment to promote the exchange of ideas and fuel technical development and advancement. Many consider Comdex the premier launching pad for technical innovation. The 2001 Comdex trade show held in Las Vegas, Nevada, experienced a dip in attendance that was blamed on the softening economy and the September 11 terrorist attacks. Those who did participate in the yearly event enjoyed a wide variety of new products and high-tech business solutions.

Eighteen Comdex awards were selected by senior editors from five of the information technology industry’s leading publications: CIO, Computerworld, InfoWorld, Network World, and PC World. The most coveted of these awards, the “Best of Show” award, went to Fujitsu PC Corporation for the Fujitsu LifeBook P Series. This product is an ultralight, ultraportable notebook computer with six hours of life that is largely attributable to its low-voltage Transmeta chip. (The Fujitsu LifeBook P Series also won for the best notebook; the “Best of Show” award is selected from these other award winners.)
