Samsung's copious software add-ons and UI tweaks mean that the Galaxy Tab S delivers a particular kind of Android experience. We have a few issues with some of these extras, but the slimline Galaxy Tab S is still a very impressive tablet.
ViewSonic's VX2880ml is a well-specified 28-inch UltraHD (4K) display that delivers good performance at a reasonable price.
Sony's 5.3-inch Xperia T3 is a distinctive-looking and well-built large-screen smartphone with no serious failings, although both the screen resolution and internal storage are on the low side.
If you need a Windows 8.1 computer that's flexible enough to be a tablet, a laptop (if you add the optional keyboard) and even (if you add the optional docking station) a desktop PC, then the Surface Pro 3 manages the trade-offs as well as anything on the market.
The Precision M2800 is an impressive mobile workstation. We have just a couple of niggles: the touchpad is too small, and we'd prefer the top-of-the-range model's 128GB SSD to be bigger.
Join us for an exclusive Windows 9 analyst call and Q&A session with veteran Microsoft watcher, Mary Jo Foley.
