Gadgets: Your Tablet and PC Will Be One and the Same
From hybrid notebooks with detachable touch screens to tablets with full laptop capability, “laplets” are the next big thing.
The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T ($1,200) is both a powerful laptop that runs the full version of Windows 8 and a touch-screen device that detaches from the keyboard for a true tablet feel.
The Lenovo Yoga 13 Series ($1,200) has a 13-inch screen that folds back for tablet-style use. Its i7 Intel Core processor and long-lasting battery are great for multitasking on long-haul flights.
Microsoft’s sleek, ultra-slim Surface (pictured; $500) runs on the tablet-optimized Windows RT and features Microsoft Office and a three-millimeter-thick detachable keyboard that doubles as a cover.
