CNET editors round up their favorite tablets, including products from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
The Lenovo A10's offerings are simple, but its smooth performance and solid speakers make it a compelling budget option.
While the new Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft's best PC to date, it's more successful as a tablet than a laptop replacement.
The Belkin tablet case provides a firm fit and basic protection, but its design conforms better to midsize tablets than 7-inchers.
The new iPad Mini somehow shrinks down the iPad Air into an even more compact package, sacrificing nearly nothing. It's more expensive than before, but it's also the perfect smaller tablet.
The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors.
The Acer Iconia A1-830 is a sleek and simple tablet for basic use, but you need only spend $50 more to upgrade to a slate with faster performance and better features.
The premium specs and high-end feel of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 make it well worth the high price.
The Sony Vaio Duo 13 is ambitious, but less universally useful than other Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrids. There may not be a real need for a slider-style PC.
The Dell Venue 8 is perfect for the budget shopper with modest needs.
Microsoft's subtly updated Windows 8.1 tablet feels more like Surface Pro 1.5 -- improved battery life and better accessories make it a worthwhile (albeit pricey) laptop replacement, but it's still not an iPad-level category killer.
