In Pictures: The big, wide world of Windows 8 hardware

13 new Windows machines that aren't Surface RT

Acer Iconia W700

This 11.6-inch, 1920-by-1080 device screams tablet. Note the design: no clamshell apparatus in sight. Nonetheless, the W700 has the components of an ultrabook. For extra productivity, it comes equipped with a Bluetooth keyboard and a dock that props it up to 70 degrees. The dock also does a decent job of holding up the W700 in portrait mode. Unfortunately, a high resolution on a small screen leads to tiny text, scroll bars and icons in desktop mode, making the W700 difficult to accurately use in some scenarios. Still, it's not a bad setup for $799 with some upgradeable options.

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.
