Fujitsu Stylistic Q702

The Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 is outrageously expensive, but thanks to the detachable display it can be used as a notebook and tablet. The device also offers UMTS for surfing on the go, and there is a fingerprint scanner for security. The display shows videos and photos in decent quality - but with incorrect colors. It is a little anti-reflective, the touchscreen implements fingertips quickly and precisely.

Processor: Intel Core i5-3427U (1.8 gigahertz)
Working speed: 2.36 (good)
Game speed: 4.62 (poor)
Battery life: 1.10 (very good)

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13

The display of the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 can be folded back 360 degrees, turning the ultrabook into a tablet. The touchscreen implements user input precisely, but the keyboard is an impertinence.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-481PTG-53314G52Mass

The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 is a normal notebook with a DVD burner and a great touchscreen. All connections are on the back - and therefore inconvenient when a USB stick is to be docked.

Hewlett-Packard HP Envy x2 11-g000eg

Perhaps the stripped-down Windows 8 RT version, with which only programs from the App Store can be used, would have been the better choice for the Envy. The device only has an Intel Atom processor - and it has a hard time with the "big" Windows 8 version. Browsing through the photo collection or even putting together a holiday video from several clips requires a lot of patience. However, the HP Envy x2 is sufficient for office and Internet. The battery lasts a full eleven hours. You can simply detach the display from the keyboard using a slide switch - this turns the Envy into a tablet, which at 703 grams is about as heavy as an iPad.

Processor: Intel Atom Z2760 (1.8 gigahertz)
Working speed: 4.21 (sufficient)
Game speed: 5.77 (insufficient)
Battery life: 1.00 (very good)
