The New iPad Pro Is the Last Great Tablet

The standalone tablet is all but dead. It’s been supplanted by 2-in-1s like the Surface Pro, which promises the excellent content consumption powers of a tablet, crossed with the actual productivity of a real laptop. Still, Apple has defiantly continued to make a tablet – both the budget iPad that was refreshed in March, and the more productivity-friendly iPad Pro that was just released. The budget iPad is nice, but thanks to a few tricks, like Apple Pencil support, USB-C, and a great-looking display that can chew through any content thrown at it, the iPad Pro is better.

Asus popularised the cheap detachable laptop, but they've always been chunky little things. Not the Transformer Book Chi.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro: Yes, The Hinge is a Giant Watchband

The backflipping Lenovo Yoga single-handedly made laptops cool again. The Yoga 2 Pro added a backlit keyboard and a brilliant 3200 x 1800 QHD screen.

Not only is the new £1,299 Yoga 3 Pro thinner and lighter, it has a freaking watch band consisting of 813 precision-machined, hand-assembled components holding up its infinitely positionable screen.
