In Pictures: Six Windows 8 tablets

Intel's hardware partners recently showed off their mid-range Windows 8 hybrid devices at a Clover Trail coming-out party. Now we reveal the hardware in all its photographic splendor. Each tablet features Intel's Z2760 Atom processor (aka Clover Trail), a dual-core, four-thread system-on-chip running up to 1.8GHz. Clover Trail devices won't pack the performance oomph of Ultrabooks, laptops and hybrids running Core-caliber processors, but the products you see in this gallery should deliver excellent battery life—in excess of 10 hours. In theory, at least. Perhaps more importantly, Clover Trail devices could emerge as winning travel PCs: thin, light tablets married to accompanying keyboard docks. Put everything together, and you might be able to leave your iPad and Ultrabook at home, and simply take one of these hybrids on the road. Click here to find out more!

Samsung Smart PC

Samsung’s Smart PC, also known as the Series 5 Slate, features an 11.6-inch, 1,366x768 display and directly connects to a stylish keyboard dock for a complete clamshell experience.

The display integrates a Wacom digitizer and full S Pen support (the same technology used in Galaxy Note smartphones). In laptop mode, the system weighs 3.26 pounds. The tablet alone weight 1.65 pounds. Samsung includes both front-facing (2 megapixel) and rear-facing (8 megapixel) cameras for easy video conferencing.

Much like a Samsung Ultrabook, the Series 5 is a smart, posh-looking affair (Samsung calls the color styling "mystic blue"). We couldn't glean a thickness spec, but Samsung was one of the few companies to discuss pricing: The tablet alone will cost $649, and the tablet and dock together will run $749.
