This week we've gotten the opportunity to take a peek at the newest version of Acer's hero for the 7-inch tablet form factor in the Acer Iconia Tab A110.

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch hands-on

ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch hands-on

ASUS' Computex 2012 range may have err'd on the odd side so far, but the new Zenbook Prime UX21A Touch is an ultrabook with far more mass-market appeal despite delivering finger-friendly Windows 8. Taking the original Zenbook Prime from earlier this year, and slotting in a capacitive touchscreen on top of the Full HD display, it eschews crazy hinges and odd form-factors for a more straightforward boost in functionality.

Samsung Series 5 Hybrid and Series 7 Hybrid live

Samsung may have opened its Computex showing with a range of touchscreen models, but the company also had a pair of hybrid tablet/notebooks to demonstrate too. Hot on the heels of the Series 5 Ultra Convertible, Series 5 Ultra Touch and Series 7 Slate PC come the Samsung Series 5 Hybrid and Series 7 Hybrid, a pair of Windows 8 slates running Intel chips and using a clever magnetic dock to cut down on hinge bulk.

Acer’s Trinity-powered ICONIA Tab hands-on

Acer’s Trinity-powered ICONIA Tab hands-on

Acer granted AMD its wish: a hybrid docking tablet running the chip company's new 2nd-gen Trinity APU that borrows the form-factor of the company's previous ICONIA Tab Android and Windows 7 models. The new Acer ICONIA Tab Windows 8 version doesn't have an official name yet - its predecessor, which ran the old OS on an AMD C-Series processor, was the W500 - but functionally doesn't leave many gaps.

AMD Trinity Windows 8 hybrid hands-on

AMD brought along its latest 2nd-gen Trinity reference design along to Computex 2012 today, and we grabbed some hands-on time with the Compal-made tablet/notebook hybrid after the keynote. An 11.6-inch slate which docks into a well-spaced keyboard with trackpad and extra ports, the unnamed prototype is unlikely to reach the market in its current form, but AMD hopes will provide some inspiration to its OEM partners considering APUs.

AMD Trinity APU prototypes get Computex outing

AMD has already waxed lyrical about the benefits of its 2nd-gen Trinity APUs, but the company brought along some more prototypes to Computex 2012 including a Transformer-aping tablet and dock. The Compal-made reference design is built around an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 touchscreen and runs Windows 8, with AMD claiming its several years of collaboration with Microsoft on the next-gen OS means significant performance advantages over Intel- and ARM-based alternatives.

Toshiba Computex 2012 Hands-on Round-Up

Toshiba Computex 2012 Hands-on Round-Up

This week there are more than just a couple of titans bringing the heat to the Windows world, Toshiba being one that dares to bring odd form factors to the table here in the summer of 2012. What we've seen from Toshiba this week includes one brand new tablet, a lovely All-in-one PC, and three notebooks - though one of them we're not quite what to call as its got a display that's so oddly shaped that it can't quite be called a notebook, but certainly isn't a tablet as it does have a keyboard attached.
