Windows 10 is responsible for a frenzy of PC vendor activity, with laptop and tablet makers announcing product upgrades, touting key new features, and generally trying to re-energise the market.

If you've been holding back on hardware spending, you might now be ready to take a look at what's on offer. With the top hardware manufacturers all offering free upgrades to Windows 10, we've rounded up some of the most interesting offerings that will give you access to Microsoft's latest OS.

We asked the five leading PC vendors -- Lenovo, Dell, HP, Acer and ASUS -- to identify their flagship Windows 10 business products across five categories: mainstream laptop; ultraportable/ultrabook; hybrid/convertible; large tablet; and small tablet. All but HP and Dell obliged with a list.
