In Pictures: 10 new Windows 8 tablet/laptop convertibles

It's a tablet! No, it's a laptop! The introduction of Microsoft Windows 8 has spawned a variety of new and exciting devices -- including a group of tablets that turn into laptops, and vice versa. Here are 10 new and upcoming convertibles that were built especially to accommodate the new operating system.

Acer Iconia W510

Like the form factor of the dockable tablet/notebooks, but don't like their prices? The Acer Iconia W510 might be an alternative, if you don't mind a slightly less beefy system featuring an Intel Atom processor and only 32GB to 64GB of SSD storage.

At 1.27 lb. (minus the dock), with a 10.1-in. 1366 x 768 display that supports ten-point touch and a vaunted nine hours of battery life -- up to 18 with the keyboard dock—it's clearly been built for road-trip longevity. Its larger cousin, the W700, bumps the display to 11.6-in. full HD.

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.
