For the past couple of years AnandTech has failed to have a presence at one of the most interesting trade shows on the planet not to mention the third largest. The show in particular is none other than Computex which is held each year in the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC) and the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) in Taipei, Taiwan.
Finally, after waiting for the moons to align perfectly with the sun, AnandTech was finally able to free up an entire week in which we could cover the show. So a total of 18 hours in the air placed us half way around the world ready to tackle the wealth of information that Computex was able to provide.
For those of you that aren't familiar with the show, Computex can be considered to be much like the Fall Comdex held every year in Las Vegas with one major exception, at Computex you get a lot more of the motherboard manufacturers and a lot less of the random manufacturers producing mice and keyboards that we're really not concerned with (no offense to mouse/keyboard manufacturers, they just aren't the most interesting components).
Before we get on to the show we have some eye candy taken from about 37,000 feet in the air as we traveled over Canada and Alaska.
