In Pictures: 10 new Windows 8 tablet/laptop convertibles

It's a tablet! No, it's a laptop! The introduction of Microsoft Windows 8 has spawned a variety of new and exciting devices -- including a group of tablets that turn into laptops, and vice versa. Here are 10 new and upcoming convertibles that were built especially to accommodate the new operating system.

Asus Taichi 21-DH51

The Asus Taichi 21 has a unique solution to the problem of how to handle the display on a convertible notebook. Instead of making you twist the lid around, the Taichi has two 11.6-in. or 13.3-in. full HD touch displays -- one on the inside for conventional notebook PC use, and one on the outside for tablet use.

The extra display comes at a premium price -- the Taichi starts at $1,299 for the Intel Core i5 model and goes up to $1,599 for the Core i7 -- but it might be worth it if you need two displays at once. (Asus also has single-display tablets that dock with keyboards, the Transfomer Book and Tablet 810.)

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
