The delightful dozen: 12 fantastic (and free) Windows 8 apps

Khan Academy Khaaaaaaaaaaaaan! The vaunted Khan Academy is a cornerstone of the online education movement, and its deep collection of 3800-plus educational K-12 videos is fully available in this superb Windows app. Support for some of Windows 8's cooler tricks—such as the Search Charm and the Play To function, to send video to connected televisions—add to the allure.

You can also log in with your Khan Academy account to ensure you get full credit for watching videos if you're doing the formal learning path thing. Physics, computer science, and biology have never been so accessible.

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.
