Lenovo N20P Chromebook
Lenovo's N20p is a long-lasting touchscreen Chromebook with a design on the sharper side of budget, but its semi-hybrid hinge feels like a half measure.
Lenovo ThinkPad 11e ( Chrome, touchscreen)
The education-aimed Yoga 11e Chromebook bends into several useful hybrid shapes, but it's also too thick and rugged for commuters who want lightweight hardware for their lightweight operating system.
Acer Switch 10
The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a budget hybrid that skips the more-common fold-back or button-clasp hinges and instead attaches its screen via a magnetic connection. It shares the same hardware limitations as other small hybrids, but can be easier to use.
ASUS VivoTab Note 8 M80TA
The 8-inch VivoTab 8 is a Windows tablet that doesn't particularly stand out in a crowded field, until you discover the Wacom stylus tucked inside its body.
Acer Iconia W4-820-2466
The 8-inch Acer Iconia W4 has a few advantages that help it stand out from a crowd of similar devices, including great battery life and enough ports to support basic productivity. It's also much better -- and less expensive -- than last year's W3 model, so it earns bonus points for that.
Lenovo MIIX 2 10-inch
With a bigger screen than most Windows tablets and an included keyboard dock, the 10-inch Lenovo Miix 2 tries to walk the line between entertainment and productivity, but it's still a few keyboard tweaks away from success.
Lenovo ThinkPad 8
If you’re craving full Windows 8 on a tablet the size of an iPad Mini, and want a great display, the ThinkPad 8 is one of the best we’ve seen...but not by much.
Toshiba enters the growing Chromebook market with the first 13-inch model. It's a great size for switching between travel and home/office use and feels comfortable to type on, but other Chromebooks offer more features for the same price.
Acer C720P Chromebook ( C720P-2600)
The Acer Chromebook C720P manages to get better at all the key things, adding up to a little laptop alternative that's better than any budget Chromebook we've seen before.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10
Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even the low cost.
