Sure, you can run Windows 8 on your existing laptop, PC or Windows 7 tablet, but these devices were not designed with the latest Microsoft OS in mind. Windows 8 pretty much requires touch to get the most out of it, so touch screens have been added to a selection of ‘traditional’ laptops and AIO (all-in-one) PCs.
However, there is also a range of tablets and convertible laptops which were very scant during the age of Windows 7, and these are where the innovation is happening. Hybrid devices are arguably the best of both worlds, which is why we said that “Windows 8 would kill the laptop”.
It can all be a little overwhelming, but don’t worry: we’re here to bring you the latest on the best Windows 8 and Windows RT laptops, tablets, convertible/hybrid laptops and of course AIO PCs. We’ll update this list (in alphabetical order) as new previews/reviews come in.
