In Pictures: Winning Windows 8 tablets for travel

At a Clover Trail coming-out party, Intel showed off its mid-range Windows 8 hybrid devices. Here's a look at the features of some of the new Clover Trail devices that make them a winning choice for your next travel PC.

Samsung Smart PC

Samsung's Smart PC, also known as the Series 5 Slate, features an 11.6-inch, 1,366x768 display and directly connects to a stylish keyboard dock for a complete clamshell experience.

The display integrates a Wacom digitizer and full S Pen support (the same technology used in Galaxy Note smartphones). In laptop mode, the system weighs 3.26 pounds. The tablet alone weighs 1.65 pounds. Samsung includes both front-facing (2 megapixel) and rear-facing (8 megapixel) cameras for easy video conferencing.

Much like a Samsung Ultrabook, the Series 5 is a smart, posh-looking affair. We couldn't glean a thickness spec, but Samsung was one of the few companies to discuss pricing: The tablet alone will cost $649, and the tablet and dock together will run $749.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
