Lenovo Tab 4

Price: $109 and $149 for the 8- and 10-inch models, respectively. The Plus versions run $199 and $249.

Availability: May 2017

The outlook: The Lenovo Tab 4 is the most traditional tablet on this list, as it doesn't have a keyboard accessory to go with it.

Instead, it's a pure media consumption device, ready for streaming Netflix, playing games or simply surfing the web.

Lenovo Tab 4 Plus

The Plus versions have better screens and faster processors, making them more expensive.

Lenovo Miix 720

Price: $999

The outlook: The Lenovo Miix 720 is similar to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, and that's probably the best compliment it can get.

It has a detachable keyboard cover with a touchpad and a fold-out kickstand that adjusts the viewing angle up to 150 degrees. Unlike the Surface, though, the keyboard is included with the Miix.

Samsung Chromebook Pro

Price: $500

Availability: April

The outlook: While the Samsung Chromebook Pro is a solid notebook in the $500 range, it's technically a hybrid that can be used as a tablet.

Samsung Chromebook Pro

Thanks to its 360-degree hinge, you can use it as a tablet when gaming or watching TV.

The design is only part of the Samsung Chromebook Pro's appeal. If you're a Chromebook skeptic, hold you reservations until you see this bad boy.

Microsoft Surface Pro 5?

Microsoft usually unveils new hardware in the spring. The Surface Pro 4 -- one of the best tablet-hybrids around -- came out in late 2015.

Because of the gap in time and the expectation of new products in the first half of the year, many suspect a new Surface Pro tablet should arrive soon.
