In Pictures: 15 hot Windows 8 hybrid notebooks and tablets
Microsoft's Windows 8 launch on October 26 is nearly here, and new device announcements are coming so fast you need a scorecard to keep up. One of the big themes with this touch-centric Windows release is touchscreens on everything including Ultrabooks, tablets with keyboard docks, or new all-in-one convertible PCs. Some critics aren't buying the hybrid device craze that Windows 8 is inspiring, but if you ever wanted to a touch-enabled laptop, there's never been a better time to buy.
This 14-inch laptop features an edge-to-edge multi-touch display, an Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor, 500GB hard drive and a 20GB SSD, two USB 3.0 ports, and HDMI out. This isn't really a hybrid device, but it is an example of how computer manufacturers will start to integrate touch screens into even standard clamshell laptops.
