The best new Windows 8 tablets and convertibles with the battery life of an iPad or Android slate review
Intel's new Haswell architecture made possible Win 8 tablets with 8+ hours of battery life, like on iPads or Android slates, which was unheard of just a few months ago, unless you settle for a slower Atom processor, a few examples of which compromise we include as well.

We are rounding up some of the best and most frugal devices of what has trickled down lately with Haswell and the lowly Atom - the warriors which make Microsoft's full-fledged Windows 8 operating system truly mobile for the first time, starting with last night's resolution craze called Samsung ATIV Q.
