Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 with AnyPen

If you can live with the fact that its screen is too small for the full Windows 8 experience, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2's comfy build and cutting-edge stylus technology are compelling enough reasons to own it.

Acer Iconia Tab 8

The Acer Iconia Tab 8 has the design edge for budget slates, but you can find a faster performing tablet in the same price range.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
REVIEW

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact's wealth of power, its skinny, waterproof body and decent screen make it a good option to consider if you're after a portable tablet. Although its screen resolution doesn't put it over its competitors, its ability to play games from your PS4 -- although not perfect yet -- gives it a unique selling point.

REVIEW

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.

REVIEW

Acer ICONIA W4-820-2882

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.

REVIEW

Toshiba Encore 8 ( 32GB)

The Toshiba Encore 8 offers a lot for its price, but the more appealing Dell Venue 8 Pro is a cheaper and sleeker alternative.
