The ThinkPad W700 from Lenovo with its dual screen LCD won the overall best award in the GCN Best New Technology at FOSE contest, as well as the top prize in the portable category.

The Ace Lightning 200 is a standard desktop that has been reconfigured to act as an all-in-one, but without the all-in-one price. It won for best desktop in the GCN Best New Technology at FOSE contest.

The GCN Lab staff inspected more than 115 new products entered in the GCN Best of FOSE competition.

The show floor at FOSE was crowded with feds all three days of the show.

This desktop from Lenovo has a well-designed cooling pattern designed to keep the system running at peak efficiency.

This tiny PC, the Minew A10, sells for less than $300, and is completely silent because it has no cooling fans.

Look mom, no fans! The Minew A10 is basically one giant heat sink.

GCN Lab judges Greg Crowe and John Breeden II have an impromptu conference on the show floor.

Security was a huge topic at FOSE this year, with fingerprint and Common Access Control readers taking up a lot of room on the floor.

GCN Lab Reviewer Greg Crowe judged the storage category at the show, so he got to take a look at this drive array from Spectra Logic.

Securely providing wireless connectivity to feds was a huge deal at FOSE. This Black Box wireless system was a good example of this trend.

Visitors to the FOSE IT expo had a lot to see this year.
