Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro Reviewed on November 13, 2013 Product overview See more Laptops
Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro
  • CNET Editor rating:
    Editors' choice 4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.6 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 11 reviews

The Bottom Line: A major update to our favorite Windows 8 hybrid, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is still a better laptop than tablet, but the new version adds a future-proof better-than-HD display at a great price. Read review

Specs: Intel 4th gen Core i3 4010U / 1.7 GHz, 4 GB, 128 GB, Microsoft Windows 8.1, 13.3 in, 3200 x 1800, 3.1 lbs

MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003 Reviewed on March 20, 2014 Product overview See more Laptops
MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003

The Bottom Line: The MSI GE60 combines one of Nvidia's new 800-series GPUs and other high-end components, in a gaming rig that's not the desk-hogging backbreaker some others are. Read review

Specs: Intel 4th gen Core i7 i7-4700HQ, 8 GB, 1 TB - 7200 rpm, Microsoft Windows 8.1, 15.6 infinity, nVidia GeForce GTX 860M, 5.28 lbs

Asus Transformer Book T100
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.7 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Asus Transformer Book T100 revives the Netbook value proposition (and Netbook usability issues) in a budget-price 10-inch laptop that doubles as a tablet. You won’t love it, but for sheer bang for the buck, it’s hard to beat. Read review

Specs: 10.1 in, Microsoft Windows 8.1, 2 GB, Intel, 10.4 in x 6.7 in x 0.93 in, 2.4 lbs

Microsoft Xbox One Reviewed on November 20, 2013 Product overview See more Consoles
Microsoft Xbox One
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 37 reviews

The Bottom Line: Its high price and imperfect voice control and TV integration keep the Xbox One short of must-have territory, but the inclusion of Titanfall for free (for new purchases) helps Microsoft's console hold the line against Sony's compelling PS4. Read review

Specs: - Game console, Blu-ray, 8 GB

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 (Windows 8.1) Reviewed on October 21, 2013 Product overview See more Tablets
Microsoft Surface Pro 2 (Windows 8.1)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 15 reviews

The Bottom Line: Microsoft's subtly updated Windows 8.1 tablet feels more like Surface Pro 1.5 -- improved battery life and better accessories make it a worthwhile (albeit pricey) laptop replacement, but it's still not an iPad-level category killer. Read review

Specs: 10.6 nm, 4 GB, Intel 4th Gen Core i5, 10.8 in x 0.53 in x 6.8 in, 2 lbs

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Reviewed on October 17, 2013 Product overview See more Operating systems

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.1 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 40 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you're a dedicated Windows 8 hater, the update to Windows 8.1 isn't going to change your mind. For everyone else, this collection of tweaks, fixes, and new features is useful, but everything here should have shipped in the original version last year. Read review

Specs: Windows, Operating systems

Dell Venue 8 Pro
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 14 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors. Read review

Specs: 8 in, Microsoft Windows 8.1, 2 GB - DDR3L, Intel Atom, 0.87 lbs

Microsoft Surface RT
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 114 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you're an early adopter willing to forget everything you know about navigating a computer, the Surface tablet could replace your laptop. Everyone else: wait for more apps. Read review

Specs: 10.6 in, Color TFT active matrix - Yes, Microsoft Windows RT, 2 GB, NVIDIA Tegra 3, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11g, 9.3 mm, 10.8 in 6.8 in, 676 g

Microsoft Surface 2 (Windows RT) Reviewed on October 21, 2013 Product overview See more Tablets
Microsoft Surface 2 (Windows RT)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.3 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 11 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Microsoft Surface 2 is great for getting work done, but those looking for extensive app support (beyond Office) will find top Apple, Android, and Amazon tablets to be better options. Read review

Specs: 10.6 in, Microsoft Windows 8.1 RT, 2 GB, NVidia Tegra 4, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-fi 802.11a/b/g/n, 10.81 in x 0.35 in x 6.81 in, 1.49 lbs

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Reviewed on October 8, 2013 Product overview See more Laptops
Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Lenovo tries something new with the semi-hybrid IdeaPad Flex 14. The fold-back hinge is of dubious practical use, as it doesn't fold all the way down into a tablet, but if you pick the right configuration, this is still a good, inexpensive Core i5 laptop, even without the gimmicks. Read review

Specs: Intel 4th gen Core i5 4200U / 1.6 GHz ( Dual-Core ), 8 GB, 128 GB, Microsoft Windows 8, 14 in, 1366 x 768, Intel HD 4400, 4.4 lbs

HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2 Reviewed on February 20, 2014 Product overview See more Laptops
HP Spectre 13t-h200 x2
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: A rare larger-screen hybrid, the HP Spectre x2 aims to be both a portable laptop and a video-friendly slate. The price is right, but the design feels awkward and the wonky touch pad makes it hard to use as a full-time laptop. Read review

Specs: Intel 4th gen Core i5 i5-4202Y / 1.6 GHz, 4 GB, 128 GB, Microsoft Windows 8.1, 13.3 in, 1366 x 768

NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 78 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400 is a great dual-band router for any home at an affordable price. Its lack of Gigabit Ethernet might steer enthusiasts away, however. Read review

Specs: Wireless router - None - 4-port switch (integrated), Wireless, Wired, 8.8 in x 6 in x 1.2 in, HTTP, 1.1 lbs

Dell Venue 11 Pro Reviewed on February 4, 2014 Product overview See more Tablets
Dell Venue 11 Pro
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.8 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 0.5 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: Betting on a full 1080p display partly justifies the Dell Venue 11 Pro's higher price compared to other Atom-powered tablets. But the keyboard dock add-on, which should turn this into a functional laptop alternative, is too expensive and occasionally frustrating to use. Read review

Specs: 10.8 in, Microsoft Windows 8.1, 2 GB, Intel Atom 1.46 GHz, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, 11.72 in x 0.6 in x 6.96 nm, 1.6 lbs

      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 2 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a great laptop alternative that's unfortunately too bulky to completely replace your tablet. Read review

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Reviewed on January 29, 2014 Product overview See more Laptops
Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga

The Bottom Line: Lenovo solves half the Yoga equation with a clever hidden keyboard on the ThinkPad Yoga. If we could combine this with the higher-res screen and better looks of the consumer version, we'd have the ultimate hybrid. Read review

  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 292 reviews
