Best hybrid

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

A major update to our favorite Windows 8 hybrid, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is still a better laptop than tablet, but the new version adds a future-proof better-than-HD display at a great price.

Price: $1,038.00 - $1,038.00 Check prices

4 stars Excellent A better-than-HD hybrid for less

Microsoft Surface Pro 2

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.

3.5 stars Very good

Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T (128GB, Windows 8)

The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T walks the line between ultrabook-level laptop and tablet, but doesn’t truly excel at either.

3.5 stars Very good

Razer Edge

The Razer Edge is one of the most inventive PC gaming devices in years, but you'll pay a premium for portability and proprietary add-ons.
