In Pictures: The new breed, Windows 8 PCs that innovate

These eight next-gen tablets and laptops show a new spirit of innovation in PCs

Dell XPS 12

Dell Computer's XPS 12 remids me of the Olympics -- gymnastics, specifically. That's because its screen rotates within its frame, so you can put it in nearly any position imaginable for showing the screen to others. There's nothing else like it. But as my colleague Serdar Yegulalp has discovered in his hands-on use, it's easy to pinch your finger between the frame and screen as you move the screen. (His fingers show the contusions!)

Expected ship date: November 12, 2012 Base model: 1.7GHz Core i5, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 12.5-inch screen, 3.4 lbs., Windows 8. Other configurations will be available. Base price: $1,199

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
