  • With Windows 8 hybrids you will always be wondering if this is a tablet that can become a laptop or a laptop which can become a tablet. With the Samsung Ativ Smart PC, there is no scope for any ambiguity. This is a tablet at heart, and a very good one at that.
  • It won't take long for you to feel woefully inadequate while using Windows 8 on a non-touch device. But there are accessories that let you take full advantage of the touch features.
  • With Microsoft's new operating system being optimised for touch, these devices try and bring the touchscreen closer to the user.
  • It is a Windows 8 convertible, but there is little doubt that the Dell XPS 12 is an Ultrabook in real life.
  • The 10.1-inch Windows 8 device has one of the best build qualities you will see in a tablet.
