Lenovo Yoga 900

The best overall Yoga yet, with a very high-end Core i7 CPU, excellent battery life, and Lenovo's unique watch band hinge. Perfect for those who want a hybrid that's still a laptop first.

Asus Chromebit

An interesting take on the Stick PC that's practically a stocking stuffer. This $85 micro-desktop runs Google's Chrome OS and fits in your pocket. It doesn't do much, but it's great for turning any TV or monitor into a web-surfing station.
