Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10’s superslim, unique design makes it easy to hold.The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 hardware is actually not bad for its price, and the faux-metal finish makes it feel even nicer. The glass display and body give it a halfway decent feel.The Yoga Tablet is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a few modifications.The general style of Android has been changed including fonts, buttons etc and while the default looks a bit on the childish side, there are a couple of better themes to choose from.The opposite side of the power button is the 3.5mm headset jack, and above that is the volume button and a small microphone.When the device is facing you in landscape orientation, you'll also notice there are two front-facing speakers. If you purchase the tablet, you will have already noticed the Dolby logo on the box.In Lenovo's own words, the Yoga Tablet 10 has "epic battery life" and at a quoted 18 hours, it sounds like this may be the case. This figure is gained with a pretty varied usage though, rather than a more traditional video playback test – 12 hours are spent reading an eBook.It’s also only $300.
But, The tablet’s low-resolution screen looks fuzzy and oversaturated, and the heavily modified operating system is downright ugly.
The bottom line: Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even the low cost. Specifications

Weight1.33 lbs VS Acer Iconia W510 The Acer Iconia W510 is less expensive than some other Atom-based hybrids, and its detachable tablet screen is light and portable.10.1-inch IPS screen, 1366 x 768; Dual-core 1.8GHz Atom, 2GB of RAM, 32/64GB SSD; 295 degree twist hinge turns keyboard into stand; Up to 18hrs battery life; Windows 8 convertible with keyboard dockThe Iconia W510 is so very portable. At 10.1-inches and weighing less than two pounds, it fits easily in a bag or large purse, and you'll likely forget you're even carrying it. Battery life is excellent.
But, In laptop mode, the system is awkwardly top-heavy, and the puny keyboard and touch pad are not designed for serious use.
The bottom line: Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.

You can have any colour, as long as it's black.A dock is also available for the Latitude 10 that offers a really solid charging stand for your tablet as well as Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI and extra USB ports. A soft case is also available for it, too.The dock hints at the business-orientated use for this device - Latitude is Dell's business mobile computing brand, after all. The business connection isn't just in terms of the name and robust appearance. The 64GB model boasts a TPM (Trusted Platform Module), which is a business-orientated feature designed to prevent unauthorised changes to the operating system.
But, With an Intel Atom processor, performance is limited, and some apps seem far better optimized for the hardware than others. Storage is limited to 64GB, and USB connections are all the slower 2.0 type.
The bottom line: The price difference between an Atom tablet such as the Dell Latitude 10 and a Core i5 one doesn't seem large enough to justify the performance gap. But, the Latitude 10 makes up for it in part with a very long-lasting battery.
