Nicholas Negroponte touts the importance of tablets at Mobilize 2010 in San Francisco.

RIM President and Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis introduces the BlackBerry PlayBook, a 7-inch touch screen tablet with Web browsing, multitasking, and even Flash.

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.
If you need a transportable workstation with top-notch performance for demanding design, visualisation, analysis or content-creation work, Eurocom's Panther 5D delivers the goods — if you can stomach the price.
This excellent Windows 8 tablet/ultrabook hybrid has a well-designed keyboard docking mechanism, typically solid build quality and a specification well suited to mainstream business use. It has a hefty price tag, though, and the lack of SD-based storage expansion is perplexing.
Fujitsu's new Lifebook E-Line offers an attractive design and solid build quality, with plenty of configuration options and (common) accessories. The optional modular Bay Projector is interesting, but you'll need to weigh its utility against the £280 price tag.
The 2013 13-inch MacBook Air has enough internal improvements to make it one of the most desirable ultraportable notebooks on the market. It may lack an ultra-high-resolution display and touchscreen functionality, but there's little else to fault it.
Eurocom's 15.6in. high-performance notebook gets the 4th-Generation Intel Core (Haswell) upgrade, and delivers the goods in terms of specification and speed. The design is uninspiring, though, and it's also bulky and heavy.
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch is attractive and solidly built, with an excellent touchscreen and a great keyboard. However, we'd like to see more ports and a removable battery at the very least. As it stands, this ultrabook is too expensive for widespread deployment.
The EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well-made ultrabook with a particularly good keyboard and touchpad. We like the removable battery and optional battery slice, but would prefer a higher screen resolution across the range. Windows 8 fans will also note the absence of a touchscreen option.
Although it's visually pleasing and well specified, particularly in the display department, the Chromebook Pixel's premium price tag makes it difficult for us to recommend.
The swivel-screen XPS 12 offers clever design, solid build quality and a high-quality (if reflective) screen. Battery life is not great, though, and this system is severely lacking in connectivity — even by ultrabook standards.
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. However, a few design issues, missing features and, above all, disappointing battery life suggest you'd be wise to wait and see how this product develops.
An ultrabook that can convert to a tablet when the occasion demands, the ThinkPad Twist has a lot going for it. The build quality is very good, and there are enough business-friendly features to make it acceptable as a BYOD system. Battery life may be an issue though.
