If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.
A fresh look and comfortable feel make HP’s 11-inch budget Chromebook an appealing bet, especially for households that need a cheap no-frills Web-surfing Google Netbook. If you’re not thinking about productivity, though, you’re better off with a tablet.
Formerly the Samsung Series 9, the rebranded Ativ Book 9 got little more than a change in name; the laptop feels dated, as it lacks a touch screen and the benefits of newer Intel processors.
Samsung’s latest budget spin on a Windows touch-screen, AMD-powered, ultrabook-esque laptop has some flair, but the corners it cuts aren't worth the money saved.
Despite excellent all-around picture quality, the Samsung UNF9000 4K TV offers almost no improvement over cheaper 1080p TVs that cost much less.
The superthin, superlight Sony Vaio Pro 11 is everything we expect from an excellent ultrabook.
The Nexus 10's superior design and swift performance make it one of the best Android tablets to date.
The latest iPad adds several tweaks and improvements to secure its position at the top of the tablet heap. It's better all around, but third-gen owners need not apply.
Hiding in the shadow of the flashy Quattron Plus tech, Sharp's top of the range TV offers a true 4K panel with four 60Hz-compatible HDMI inputs.
The 28-inch display rocks an ergonomic deign with an array of connections and starts at $799 -- low for ultra-high definition monitor.
