Microsoft Surface 3

A slick Surface hybrid for less, this new version starts at just $499, but keeps a lot of the high-end design from the Surface Pro line. The biggest knock is that you still have buy the excellent keyboard separately.

Logitech MX Master

Thanks to Logitech Darkfield Laser technology, it works on just about any surface, and an integrated rechargeable battery can last up to 40 days on a single charge. Mac users, meanwhile, enjoy the extra perquisite of gesture support -- most of the multifinger touchpad gestures can be duplicated on the MX Master when holding down an extra key.
