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.

HP Envy x2

The whole point of a tablet is that the keyboard is optional -- and the HP Envy x2 lineup takes this philosophy to heart. The screen is the actual PC; dock and undock it from its keyboard dock to use it as a full-blown laptop (3.1 lb. when docked) or as a standalone tablet (1.5 lb.). The Envy sports a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Atom processor and 64GB of SSD storage, with an 11.6-in., 1366 x 768 display that includes a stylus for writing or drawing.

Other goodies include Beats Audio, NFC support, and dual webcams: a front-facing camera with 1080p HD video and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

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.
