1. Apple iPad 2

The iPhone 4S may have been a slight retread of familiar ground, but the iPad 2 completely broke through new territory. Apple's latest tablet delivered the same user experience as the first one but did so with a faster processor, lighter weight, and slimmer profile. And Apple didn't stop there. It focused on the little things that would make using the tablet all the more enjoyable. Things like lining the front fascia with magnets and then building a cover for the tablet that made use of all those tablets so protecting the screen was simple as connecting the Apple power plug on a MacBook. It's so good we are left scratching our heads wondering what Cupertino's got coming next.
