Acer Switch 10 E ( 32GB SSD, Gray)

Despite extra storage space and a pleasing design, the Acer Switch 10 E suffers from a low-budget feel.

Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550
REVIEW

Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550

Despite a few design quirks make it feel less than premium, the Lenovo LaVie Z can't be beat for a combination of light weight and processor power.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix
EDITORS' TAKE

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix ( 2014)

The 11.6-inch convertible gets thinner, lighter, and more efficient, with redesigned keyboards that can bring the Helix up to 12 hours of battery life.

HP Spectre 13t-3000 Ultrabook
REVIEW

HP Spectre 13t-3000 Ultrabook

The HP Spectre 13 is an excellent all-around ultrabook, with a great keyboard, display, and battery life. The unique Control Zone touch pad is interesting, but I wish it were a little more useful and intuitive.

REVIEW

Asus Eee PC T91 ( black)

Asus does a good job combining a Netbook and a touch screen in the Eee PC T91, even if the system hits a couple of first-generation snags.

Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium
REVIEW

Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium

The new generation of similarly sized Netbooks do more and cost less than the Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium, putting another nail in the UMPC coffin.

HTC Shift
REVIEW

HTC Shift

The HTC Shift's small size raises some usability issues, and its battery life doesn't match what we'd expect from such a portable device. However, our primary complaint about the Shift is its remarkably high price.

Fujitsu LifeBook U810
REVIEW

Fujitsu LifeBook U810

Ambitious but flawed, the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 has more of a traditional laptop design than other UMPCs, but the otherwise excellent keyboard is marred by the loss of several important keys.
