    Lenovo’s ThinkPad 8 offers many advantages over competing 8 inch Windows tablets, including a faster processor, more storage, and a higher-resolution screen. But it comes up short when it comes to battery life and you’ll want to add a mouse and keyboard for anything more than web browsing and simple email.

    MSRP: $499 as tested (with Windows 8.1 Pro)

    Pros

    • Fast Intel Atom processor
    • Crisp 1900-by-1200-pixel display
    • Excellent build quality

    Cons

    • Lower-than-average battery life
    • Awkward I/O port locations
    • No digitizing pen or keyboard-case options
