- Acer W510 Review (EnGadget.com)
"If you don't remember today's specimen, you'd be forgiven: the Acer Iconia W510 is one of many, many tablet / laptop hybrids that have debuted over the past few months. Plus, this isn't even the highest-end Windows 8 PC Acer has to offer: unlike the W700, which has a 1080p screen and Ultrabook guts, the W510 runs off a Clover Trail-based Atom processor, and has a smaller 10.1-inch (1,366 x 768) display."
"Accordingly, the price is also lower: the W510 will start at $500 for the tablet only, though you'll also be able to purchase it with the detachable keyboard dock for $750. (And if the dock really does double the battery life to 18 hours, you might want to.)" 10-12
- Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Review (EnGadget.com)
"Even though the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the cheapest Windows 8 tablet so far, Lenovo seems to be aware that the $800 mark is a better fit for corporate types on the go than it is for consumers. The slate will ship with Windows 8 Pro installed, so itíll be able to join domains and run legacy Windows apps." 10-12
- Microsoft Surface Review (Wired.com)
"Itís something completely new and different. It is, in some ways, better than an iPad. In some ways, worse. Itís brilliant, and yet it can be puzzling as well. Confoundingly so at times. Itís a tablet of both compromises and confusion. It is a true hybrid ó neither fully a desktop nor mobile device. Thatís reflected in all sorts of ways. It is Wi-Fi only, but wonít run traditional Windows applications. It has a full-featured keyboard and runs Microsoft Office ó but itís certainly meant to be touched and swiped and tapped." 01-13

"Windows 8 represents a fundamental shift in the way Windows works and is far more touchscreen-orientated for use on tablets as well as traditional PCs." 10-12
- Windows 8 Samsung Series 5 and & Review (EnGadget.com)
"Samsung already showed off its Series 5 Hybrid back at Computex, but what we didn't know was that Sammy had yet another tablet / laptop mash-up in the works. The company just formally announced the Series 5 and it turns out it's going to be joined by the next-gen Series 7 Slate as well. (Also known as the ATIV tabs in regions outside the US.) The two 11-inch tablets more or less look alike, except the Series 5 is powered by an Atom-based Clover Trail processor, while the Series 7 packs Core i5 guts. Both support pen input, and will come with the same S Pen apps found on the Galaxy Note 10.1. As for that optional keyboard dock, Samsung previously touted its magnetic hinge, but the dock has since been retooled with a sturdier latch-based mechanism. (Check out the video below to see it in action -- the tablet really does seem incapable of falling out.)"
"Both tablets will arrive October 26th, the day Windows 8 starts shipping. The Series 7 will be available in one $1,119 configuration with 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and the keyboard. The Series 5, meanwhile, will cost $649, and will include 2GB of RAM and a 64GB solid-state drive. If you like, you can purchase the keyboard for $100, or you can buy the two as a bundle for $749." 10-12

"Both Acer and Asus unveiled the first round of Windows 8 tablets at the Computex trade show on Monday in Taiwan. And by doing so, theyíve begun defining a new category: The transforming tablet, which sits in a dock for everyday 'computing' with a mouse and keyboard, but pops out for kicking back with the touchscreen experience."
"The show-stealer has to be the Asus Transformer AiO..., an all-in-one desktop machine whose monitor is detachable, spawning a gargantuan 18.4-inch tablet. " 06-12
