This new GEL-Lyte V offers a solid color that will be easy to obtain, and equally easy on the wallet.

Lenova Yoga 900 – As someone who is constantly working around computers all day, I love hardware releases. Some are fine with last year’s MacBook Pro, but I like seeing the different PC brands pushing the envelope. One of the most competitive lines in the ultrabook market is the Yoga series from Lenovo. The laptop has a special hinged screen that allows it to be used as a tablet, and what makes even more comforting is that they managed to keep it pretty light. The new 900 is a huge improvement over the lauded Yoga 3 from last year. The mobile processor is dropped in favor of a i5 or i7, and it comes with 16GB of ram. The screen is an ultra-sharp QuadHD IPS, and Lenovo throws vents along the hinges to keep the Yoga 900 nice and cool. The lightweight laptop has the specs for the power user, and is priced right at $1299.

Across T-shirts, raglan sleeve baseball tees, and athletic fleece is an assembly of bright vibrant colors. Expect the collaborative collection to drop in stores in a few short weeks.
