Hello, Eve V

The $799 (about £600 or AU$1,050) crowd-designed Eve V ("Vee," not five) takes on the Microsoft Surface Pro and manages to hold its own. The two-in-one features competitive pricing, fanless aluminium design and a brilliant display.

Kickstand

The kickstand keeps the V standing, but it's not really that good on the lap.

The hinges are sturdy and can do up to 135 degrees.

Fingerprint sensor

The fingerprint sensor on the power button makes turning on and signing in to the V a super quick affair.

Fur magnet

Word of warning though, the alcantara fabric is quite the magnet for pet fur.
