At A Glance

A major improvement over the original ARM-powered Windows RT device, but still short of being the ultimate hybrid.

The Yoga is perhaps one of the most usable devices on the market. It has a great keyboard, trackpad, and touchscreen, and can be used in multiple positions.

Sony's new 11.6-inch convertible includes a minimalist slider keyboard, but behaves more like a tablet.
