|Samsung Galaxy Book 12, 12.0 inch, 754 grams (1.66 lbs)|
The Samsung Galaxy Book 12 is a quality, productive 12-inch Windows tablet option which comes in at about 1.2 KG with the keyboard. We haven't fully tested this but remain in close contact with Notebookcheck for information. Their tests have been very positive.
|Google Pixel Slate, 12.3 inch, 725 grams (1.6 lbs)|
The first of the Google tablet-focused ChromeOS PCs aiming at entry-level computing to high-level processing, all on the Chrome operating system with Android app capability and Chrome OS optimisations for the tablet. It competes with many mobile PCs and yet doesn't use a classic desktop operating system. We've always liked the simplicity, security and stability of Chrome OS and the breadth of Android apps within it so if you're not focused on video editing, this could be an efficient choice of PC.
We like the fact that there's a 48Wh battery in this, and it weighs just 725 gramms. This is one of the lightest 12.3-inch tablets you can buy with that sort of battery capacity.
|Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320, 10.1 inch, 550 grams (1.21 lbs)|
|Fujitsu Stylistic R726 Tablet, 12.5 inch, 789 grams (1.74 lbs)|
The Fujitsu Tablet Stylistic R726 with a 12.5 inch anti-glare display transforms into a full performance and full productivity notebook by attaching the slim magnetic keyboard. It has a magnesium-aluminium case which gives it durabiltiy for business professionals on the move. It can be used with a digital pen to take notes or signatures on the tablet. Enterprise-grade connectivity like 4G/LTE and security features like encrypted drives and NFC-based authentication allow you to do your job wherever you want; all in confidence that your data is secure.
|One Xcellent 10 ( v2), 10.1 inch, 594 grams (1.31 lbs)|
The One Xcellent 10 is the second generation tablet from the German shop at one.de and as such is an in-house 10.1 inch tablet powered by an Atom Z3735F SoC with 2GB RAM and currently is about 180 Euros though there seems to be an XL version which just has 64GB storage at 240 Euros (Nov2015).
|Microsoft Surface Pro 4, 12.3 inch, 766 grams (1.69 lbs)|
The Surface Pro 4 has launched with a bigger screen in the same sizing as the Surface Pro 3. Entry level $899 model will be a Core M based device with Intel HD 515 graphics but a Core i7 version with Intel Iris graphics will be available. A new mechanical Touch-Type keyboard will also work with the Surface Pro 3. Resolution is 2736 x 1824
|Dell Venue 10 7000 Series, 10.5 inch, 597 grams (1.32 lbs)|
Dell's Venue 10 7000 series Android tablet is similar in looks to Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 series but without the kickstand, it comes with a high resolution 2560x1600 display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and an Atom Z3580 processor with of course Dell's options for customising and upgrading. The keyboard (466 grams) is probably a necessary extra so that a tent mode can be used, the docking system uses latches and magnets. It's a very good mobile laptop-like Android computer but if you'll need quite a bit more capacity if you're a photographer, you can use up to 512GB SD cards though.
|Asus Transformer Book T100HA, 10.1 inch, 580 grams (1.28 lbs)|
Asus have updated the T100 to the Transformer Book T100HA with a Cherry Trail processor, the Atom x5-Z8500, and 4GB RAM and an options for 64 or 128GB storage which will be a relief for those who start using a small mobile device as a desktop. It has a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution 10.1 inch screen but ultra light weight and huge (claimed) battery of life of 14 hours and a USB-C port as well. Slight case design changes include a metal rear and re-worked tablet docking mechanism. The Transformer Book T100HA looks like it's going to be as popular as the previous models were.
|Lenovo Thinkpad 10 ( 2015), 10.1 inch, 617 grams (1.36 lbs)|
Announced near the end of May, the headline for the Lenovo Thinkpad 10 is it's the first identified with Windows 10. Promoted as a business ready 10.1" tablet with full PC experience with the latest Atom Cherry Trail CPU it's very light at 617 grams and also versatile in that it adapts for work, home, or mobile use, by having usage modes such as laptop, desktop, tablet, or in a stand mode. Notable optional extras are a digitizer pen and a 4G LTE module. The inference from the TechRadar.com hands-on is that it is not fanless - in comparing with a competitor the Dell 11 Pro 7000 series (7140 I guess)
|Fujitsu Arrows Tab Q665, 11.6 inch, 795 grams (1.75 lbs)|
Fujitsu's first Core M device is the Arrows Tab Q665 Windows tablet targeted at the enterprise market - solid in construction (also waterproof and dustproof to IP58 standard) and security. You can get it with a choice of Core M-5Y10C or M-5Y31 CPUs, 128 or 256GB SSD and 4 or 8GB RAM. As usual with enterprise divices from Fujitsu it will be expensive if it comes to Europe - upwards of 1200 euros but it does have top notch components.
