5. Lenovo 7” Yoga Tablet



Not an Apple enthusiast? The Lenovo 7” Yoga tablet is one of the most original tablet designs ever and I like it a lot. The Yoga is a very thin device with a cylindrical tube running down one side, resembling an Apple keyboard. The cylinder holds the batteries and, doubles as a handle and a serves as the hinge point for a really solid stand. As a result, it’s easy to hold, provides a 15-hour battery life, and is easy to stand next to your computer to use as a second display. I’ve used it for book reading and then sit it on my desk with Gmail open to see my incoming email. While its processor and display’s 1,280 x 800 pixels are just adequate, the aluminum housing and build construction are outstanding. ($249)
