All of the PCs featured on our website were chosen because they were designed to harness the power of Windows 8.1, but these five are just a few that really stand out.
We love Surface 2 for hard-core productivity, with USB ports, a microSD card reader and touch versions of Outlook, Word, and Excel, but it’s also an amazing entertainment device. With an HD video out port and 10 hours of video playback, you can download flicks and watch double features on your wide screen TV. Plus, it’s thin, light and blazing fast but with that solid feel you get from high-quality craftsmanship.
The Lenovo Yoga 11S is simply a great PC. You pick it up and if feels good, you turn it on and it looks great. It’s a 2-in-1 PC, so you can use it as a tablet or a laptop, but it also has two other modes that make it super versatile for watching movies and gaming—Tent mode and Stand mode. Prop it up to watch a movie in just about any space. Love the orange color, love the price.
The Dell Venue 8 Pro is an outstanding value in the companion PC category. It’s super-thin and light, with high-quality design and construction. It also packs a real punch when you need to be productive. You get Office included, and there's an optional full keyboard dock. Enjoy full PC functionality at the size and price of an e-reader.
In this price range the ASUS Transformer Book T100 is a serious bargain. Sleek design and sturdy craftsmanship give it the look and feel of a much more expensive PC. It’s also a 2-in-1 PC, so you get all the benefit of a tablet with a nice solid, fully integrated docking keyboard that just snaps right on. With an 11-hour battery life and Office preinstalled, this PC is definitely a great deal.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a fantastic all-around PC. It's compact, powerful, and has a georgous screen that somehow manages to make colors look brilliant in all kinds of light. The 11-hour battery life really frees you up and you get almost a full charge in just an hour. Throw in the optional keyboard and the Lumia 2520 goes from an all-star to a super-star—it gives you 5 extra hours of battery life, a layer of protection, a touchpad, and two USB ports for working on the move.
