When not in use, you can stow the stylus inside a corner of the device -- until you inevitably lose it down the sofa, that is.

Around the back there's a camera, perfect for alienating yourself at gigs, or taking quick shots of your pets.

Unlike, say, the Surface RT, the Tab 3 runs a full version of Windows. That means you can install programs from outside of Microsoft's own app store.

A front-facing camera means this tablet is equipped to handle video calls. The screen itself has a 1,366x1,800-pixel resolution.

On the inside, the Tab 3 is powered by an Intel Atom processor. That's not a particularly powerful chip, so we'll be looking closely at performance in the full review.

It's a slender beast, at a mere 8.2mm thick. It weighs 550g, making it extremely portable, if larger than rival slates.
