Asus VivoTab

Asus has significant experience with tablet/laptop hybrids from its Android-based Transformer line, now it gets to play with serious productivity via Windows 8 running in the VivoTab.

The device's 11.6-inch, 1,366x768 display is a Super IPS+ panel, and the system supports a Wacom stylus for old-timey note-taking and drawing. There's an 8-megapixel camera, which is just 8.3mm thick, and weighs under 1.5 pounds. The optional dock adds a keyboard, extra battery life and USB ports. The industrial design? Austere but classy. Only significant hands-on time will tell us whether a Clover Trail hybrid can replace an iPad and laptop in a single package, but if nothing else, we think the VivoTab's generous display and competent keyboard have a fighting chance toward that goal.
