No matter you rent the apartment or you wanna make your own house looks a little different than usual, you always need to draw a blueprint before you make any movements in your room so it won't get crashed.

Those furniture drawings and sizes of them drives me crazy every time. Only until i found this Audodesk Homestyler, did i find make a home design blueprint could be so funny and made me really proud.

Operation of this software is very simple, you can seperate your room by simplely drag rooms and walls, every function room has its unique structures and so as furnitures. Those Sofa, Television, Bed, Kitchen stuff are listed in 2D model first, so after you finish your design, you can turn them to 3D model easily and view the effect.

And the most interesting thing about this software is that, every single stuff listed are from real things, which means you can buy a exactly same sofa from the market if you don't wanna change another sofa. Which means, you real furnitured house will look exactly the same as you have designed.

In 2D
In 3D

Anyway, those are too many other functions about this Autodesk Homestyler, you will only find how funny it would be until you try it with your own hands. Extension can be directly found from this site:

5. ASUS Eee Pad Transformer
The Asus has released many choices for users to pick up at the CES , because they think the biggest problem of ipad is they are lack of choice for users to pick up, and seems like they hit the Apple ipad team right in the face. ASUS Eee Pad Transformer was the most popular one among its all three series. This 10 inch- tablet with a duel core NVDIA Tegra 2 cpu that runs Android 3.0 take customer only 399 US Dollars for purchase. If  you are a Asus fun, i think you can't miss this Eee Pad Transformer. 

4. Blackberry Playbook
Blackberry Playbook didn't have a good performance in sales when it was first released, this 7 inch tablet with IOS system couldn't attract enough attention with its outlook. Unfortunately, you can only get its beautiful places after you try it with your own hands. Blackberry Playbook has really good performace in dealing with multiple tasks and thanks to its excellent support on Flash, it is definitely the best tablet pc for searching the internet.

3. Amazon Kindle Fire
When the first news of Amazon Kindle Fire get released, many people got great interests with it and some people even wonder it might be the terminator of ipad series. With the unbelievable huge source for video and music from Amazon for users and good hardware equipped, this tablet pc costs only 199 US Dollars. And research says that the main reason they buy a Kindle Fire is for its big potential source from Amazon Online Store, seems that the advantage of Itunes is about to be finished by it

2. HP Touchpad
The biggest news occured this year, i believe the promotion of HP touchpad can be one among them. When HP Touchpad was first released, many people missed it for its high price even though it has a WebOS operation system. In August, Bestbuy declared all those HP touchpad in store would be sold with the price of 99 US Dollars, this is a blockbuster in tablet world. Despite of its not bad performance, this low price make all in store HP Touchpad were sold out in days.

1. Apple Ipad2
Ok, finally, we come to the champion of Tablet PC in 2011. Many people can't stop asking why both ipad and ipad2 could have such a good performance in sales and those apple funs even got crazy for it. I think the biggest reason is that ipad has already built up a good reputation in tablet users. We can't deny it that ipad2 has really good hardware and operation performace. It's truly a sorry that the great contributor Steven Jobs died of cancer this year, we hope his design can leave us eternal memory about him.

Top 10 Tablet PC of 2011. Which one is yours?

Tablet PC is the new favor in 2011 and there is no doubt this trend will keep for a while.A good in use tablet can always do you a lot work things and leisure stuff, and many functions of tablet PC have already been listed in some other articles, if you have a strong desire of getting a Tablet PC for the coming year, you might take those Top 10 Tablets into consideration.

10. Samsung Sliding PC 7
There is no doubt the Samsung stuff from South Korean has already become one of the leader brands in digital world. especially nowadays it gets more connection with Google and Apple. Samsung Sliding PC 7 is a Microsoft Windows 7 tablet, thanks to its large size screen with 10.1 inches and a 1366x768 resolution, many young people tend to buy it for entertainment, and the amazing slide design is also a attractive spot. However, because of its high price of over 650 US dollars and terrible performance in battery life, it can only rank number 10.

9. Motorola Xoom
As the first Tablet PC with Android 3.0, the release of Motorola Xoom really became the spotlight of medias and users. And when we take a look at this nice stunner, i believe not many people can resist it. With a 10.1 inch screen, and the resolution of 1280x800, Motorola Xoom can easily play most HD videos without convert, two cameras with high pixel, great performance in wifi connection. Everything about Motorola Xoom seems to be perfect except one thing, the price of Motorola Xoom reaches 799 US dollars, definitely a price killer for many users.

8. HTC Flyer
HTC has already become another high tech design company in recent years, this China enterprise is know for making Android phones and Windows phones, and now it came to Tablet PC. HTC Flyer had a 7 inch screen which seems a little smaller than   those we have already mentioned. However, with a 1.5GHz cpu and 1.0 G Ram, its dealing speed can surplus many other tablet pcs. And the specific Sense UI from HTC is another irresistible element for users.

7. Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
Another Samsung Tablet PC, the world thinnest tablet attract a lot attention from female users, the 0.31 inch body is very comfortable for hands held. And General usage from Samsung Sliding PC 7 can all be found on this skinny beauty. However, the price always seems to be the roadblock for Samsung, if the price can be lower than its original 599 US dollars, i believe it will have a good performance in sales that can even beat Ipad.

6. B&N Nook Color
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color e-reader recently got an update to Android 2.2 and its own app store, which has turned it into a viable low-cost tablet. Some will argue against it since it has a heavy-handed UI forced on top of Android and doesn’t run the full Android Market app store. But, I couldn’t leave this little 7-inch tablet off the list. It has a great form factor — thin and easy in the hands — and you can’t beat the price at $249. Plus, if you’re highly technical, you can hack it into a full Android tablet.
