Microsoft Surface Pro 3
While the new Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft's best PC to date, it's more successful as a tablet than a laptop replacement.
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.
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.
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.
Sony Vaio Pro 11
The superthin, superlight Sony Vaio Pro 11 is everything we expect from an excellent ultrabook.
HP ElitePad 900
If someone else is footing the bill, HP's expensive ElitePad 900 and its accessory ecosystem cover a lot of bases, but this isn't going to be a consumer crossover product.
Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx
The IdeaTab Lynx is a perfectly functional Windows 8 hybrid but lacks the lower price of some competitors, or better design and features of others.
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.
Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2
This Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo scores with great industrial design and battery life, but adding practically required accessories makes the ThinkPad Tablet 2 very expensive for what you get.
Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro ( 64GB)
The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.
