CNET editors round up their favorite tablets, including products from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
The Samsung Series 7 Slate 700T is the fastest Windows 7 tablet we've tested, and paired with its optional accessories, it provides a very laptop-like experience, but one marred by the typical awkward onscreen Windows typing experience.
The Panasonic HM-TA1 minicamcorder offers above-average HD video recording in a small package, but is otherwise pretty lame.
If you need a laptop that can withstand a lot of abuse without spending a fortune on an all-out fully rugged model, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 offers ample peace of mind plus the latest Centrino Duo components.
For business users who don't want to compromise, the Fujitsu LifeBook T4220 is both a full-fledged laptop and a handwriting-friendly tablet--though we recommend tweaking the base configuration.
The Panasonic ToughBook 74 boasts unique durability features and a fantastic warranty, but its high price and bulky dimensions make it a good buy only if your job necessitates extreme working environments. It'll take more than the fear of a spilled cup of coffee to justify the premium and the added heft.
The Motion LS800 promises full-fledged tablet computing in a paperback-size package--but it's expensive.
Despite its quirky, clip-on keyboard, this system is still one of our top tablet picks for the office or the home.
With Centrino technology and the largest screen size of the slate-style tablets, the M1300 Tablet PC makes computing easy for mobile workers.

The TC1000 isn't the speediest tablet we've seen, but if you're after style and flexibility, it's a winner.
