In Pictures: First look - Surface RT

A broad screen, and that keyboard is like something you've never seen

Surface 8 Pro

This is the full Windows 8 version of Surface. The other version – Surface RT – is built around a similar but different operating system tuned for ARM processors. Surface 8 Pro is built on an Intel Core i5 processor, and the software supports traditional Windows applications, something Surface RT does not. While it's called a tablet, it has that keyboard so it really behaves as a traditional laptop. Because of that fuller feature set and heavier processing power, it is likely to cost more than Surface RT. Microsoft says it will ship 90 days after Surface RT, which will give Microsoft's hardware partners the chance to launch their own versions of Windows 8 laptops before they have to compete with the Microsoft model.

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.
