CNET editors round up their favorite tablets, including products from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
While the battery is a concern, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is still a good-looking slate that's loaded with more than enough power for anything you're likely to throw at it. It's a good choice if you're looking for a more affordable iPad alternative with 4G LTE -- particularly if you've ever lost a gadget through water damage.
The Fujitsu LifeBook T4215 is made for heavy tablet use; this pricey but powerful convertible tablet offers an indoor/outdoor screen that swivels both ways, which may help you forget about its flimsy keyboard.
The tablet alone is worth $150, making this one of the more compelling ultrabook deals in recent memory.
Yet another Atom N450 Netbook in a sea of me-too competitors, the awkwardly designed Fujitsu Lifebook MH380 doesn't perform well enough or include anything unique to justify its higher price.
The super-sized tablet runs Windows 8 and features a 1,920x1,080 full HD resolution.

If you're a dedicated Windows 8 hater, the update to Windows 8.1 isn't going to change your mind. For everyone else, this collection of tweaks, fixes, and new features is useful, but everything here should have shipped in the original version last year.
With the LifeBook T1010, Fujitsu adds tablet functionality to an otherwise typical 13.3-inch laptop. It's a good choice for students and executives who prefer to take handwritten notes on the run.
The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.
This Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo scores with great industrial design and battery life, but adding practically required accessories makes the ThinkPad Tablet 2 very expensive for what you get.
The new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is a step up from previous entries in the line, at least in terms of specs.
