15 great Windows 8 hybrid notebooks and tablets

New device announcements are coming so fast you need a scorecard to keep up

Article comments

With Microsoft's Windows 8 launch moments away, 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.


IdeaPad Yoga 11

Similar to its larger counterpart, the IdeaPad Yoga 11 can fold backwards from a standard laptop clamshell into a tablet. But unlike the original Yoga announced in January, the Yoga 11 runs Windows RT, the version of Windows designed for ARM processors. The tablet features an 11.6-inch screen with 1366-by-768 resolution, Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, up to 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD storage.
