Product overview
Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 2 reviews

Specs: ARM, Tegra 3 1.4 GHz, 2 GB, Microsoft Windows RT, 11.6 in, 1366 x 768 ( HD ), Ultra-Low Power GeForce, None, 2.8 lbs

    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.0 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 19 reviews

The Bottom Line: The $249 Samsung Chromebook is a good extra computer for cloud-loving Google-centric Web users. Read review

Dell Venue 11 Pro Reviewed on February 4, 2014 Check prices
Product overview
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: 7.5 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 5.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: Toshiba enters the growing Chromebook market with the first 13-inch model. It's a great size for switching between travel and home/office use and feels comfortable to type on, but other Chromebooks offer more features for the same price. Read review

Specs: Intel Celeron 2955U / 1.4 GHz, 2 GB, 16 GB, Google Chrome OS, 13.3 in, 1366 x 768, 3.3 lbs

  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: It's great to see more touch-screen Windows 8 laptops under $600, but note that the Asus X202E requires some compromises in performance and battery life. Read review

Specs: 3rd Gen Core i3, Intel i3-3217U / 1.8 GHz ( Dual-Core ), 4 GB, 500 GB - 5400 rpm, Windows 8 64-bit Edition, 11.6 in, 1366 x 768 ( HD ), None, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 2.9 lbs

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.9 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 1 review

    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.9 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: A fresh look and comfortable feel make HP’s 11-inch budget Chromebook an appealing bet, especially for households that need a cheap no-frills Web-surfing Google Netbook. If you’re not thinking about productivity, though, you’re better off with a tablet. Read review
