The ThinkPad Yoga is heavy and short of on-board connectors — an Ethernet port being the most glaring omission. Otherwise it's difficult to fault this ingeniously designed tablet.
The Latitude E7240 is solidly made and well connected, delivering impressive performance in a thoughtful design. It's let down by the keyboard and a lack of configuration options, turning what could have been a superb business ultrabook into merely a very good one.
The ThinkPad X240 offers plentiful configuration options, tried-and-trusted design, solid build quality and a twin battery configuration that delivers long battery life. Overall, this is an excellent business ultrabook.

The Core i5-based Surface Pro combines ultrabook components with a (chunky) 10.6in. tablet form factor to deliver decent performance and excellent build quality.
