2012 Year in Review: Top 10 products

We look back at the 10 standout products which have been reviewed on IT Pro this year.


6)HP DL360p Gen8 1U server

Packing a pair of 2GHz Intel Xeon E5-2650 processor and 32GB of RAM (upgradeable to 256GB), this 1U server is a pint-sized powerhouse.

But it is HP's automated management and monitoring capabilties that makes this the best server we've tested to date. HP's Agentless Management, Active Health System (AHS) and Embedded Remote Support features ensure this device is an IT admin's dream.

HP's use of the tool-free design also means components are easy to access and remove.


5) Lenovo X1 Carbon

Who said the laptop was dead? When it comes to productivity on the move nothing beats this traditional form factor.

Intel has been promoting its Ultrabook category and the second generation devices showed a considerable improvement over the originals packing enhanced capabilities thanks to the 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge chipsets.

Lenovo X1 Carbon

The ThinkPad range is known for its excellent build quality and the X1 continued this tradition. With its 14in matte display packing a 1,600 x 900 resolution and the keyboard besting rival machines, this is the best business ultrabook on the market.
