Windows 8 has convinced manufacturers to think outside the box with the latest notebook designs, especially since the best way to make use of Windows 8 is via ‘touch’. So far, the most basic update has come in the form of touchscreen displays on standard notebook designs.
Other devices, such as the HP Elite Book 10 and Lenovo Yoga notebooks, employ swivel screens that quickly transform notebooks into tablets. Whereas the Samsung Ativ Tab 7 features a detachable display with keyboard dock, so users can have a tablet that also functions as a full-fledged notebook once docked.
