In Pictures: Winning Windows 8 tablets for travel

At a Clover Trail coming-out party, Intel showed off its mid-range Windows 8 hybrid devices. Here's a look at the features of some of the new Clover Trail devices that make them a winning choice for your next travel PC.

Acer Iconia W510

Boasting a 10.1-inch, 1280x800 display, the W510 doesn't offer quite the screen real estate of its 11.6-inch Clover Trail competitors, but it's just 8.9mm thick and 1.27 pounds -- or 2.78 pounds including the keyboard dock, which reportedly extends battery life to 18 hours.

The tablet connects to its dock with a seemingly sturdy click, but only extended PCWorld testing will prove out durability. The tablet includes speakers, a SIM slot, and microSD, microUSB and HDMI ports. The dock adds a full-size USB 2.0 port. The industrial design didn't wow us compared to other tablets we saw at the event, but, who knows, some people may appreciate the cheery, bright styling.

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

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.
