In Pictures: 10 new Windows 8 tablet/laptop convertibles

It's a tablet! No, it's a laptop! The introduction of Microsoft Windows 8 has spawned a variety of new and exciting devices -- including a group of tablets that turn into laptops, and vice versa. Here are 10 new and upcoming convertibles that were built especially to accommodate the new operating system.

Sony Vaio Duo 11

The 2.8-lb. Vaio Duo 11 switches back and forth between tablet mode and laptop mode via Sony's "Surf Slider" mechanism. The screen slides back and tilts up to reveal the back-illuminated keyboard, in much the same manner as the Android-powered Asus Eee Pad Slider, but the touchpad has been done away with to save space -- the Duo 11 instead uses a keyboard-embedded pointing stick.

Sony's also playing up the creative aspect of the Duo 11, as it includes a AAAA-powered stylus with a selection of soft-to-firm pen tips for working with the 11.6-in., full-HD touchscreen.
