      Classy, with a very fine screen but other tablets are better

      Windows 8 computers have slowly been getting smaller: the 8-inch full Windows barrier had been cracked most recently by the Dell Venue 8 Pro, and Toshiba Encore 8, both of which were a bit better than previous 8-inch models. So, if you ever wanted a Windows tablet that felt like an iPad Mini, you have plenty of options. The best of the bunch, however -- provided you can afford a little price bump -- is the Lenovo ThinkPad 8, which like the ThinkPad Tablet 2 applies the ThinkPad brand to a small tablet. This is no laptop, just in case you were confused.

      The ThinkPad 8 is a great-feeling device, and one of the most solid 8-inch tablets I've tried. It costs $399, compared to the $300 (or even $270) price for Dell and Toshiba's tablets, but you also get more: 64GB of storage, and a higher-resolution, clearly superior display. Going to 64GB would cost around as much with both of those models, and the ThinkPad 8 has better design, extras, and all-around performance.It's the best 8-inch Windows 8 tablet out there. That doesn't mean it's the best Windows 8 tablet, however, in fact you could argue that 8 inches is a downright weird territory for an OS that really still wants to be a full computer operating system, with only slight overtures at touch-friendliness. But if you want a full Windows experience on a little tablet, and still leave yourself room for versatility once you get to a desk, this is an intriguing little solution.
