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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is a wholly fitting name for a 13.3-in., 3.4-lb. Ultrabook that can flex through four different orientation modes -- laptop, tablet, tent and display stand. This is courtesy of a ten-finger multitouch display that flips a full 360 degrees.

And if touching isn't your thing, the integrated webcam can use Lenovo's Motion Control software to drive the system via Kinect-like gestures. One (literal) downside, though: The keyboard and touchpad are exposed (but disabled) when they are on the bottom of the unit -- in other words, when the Yoga 13 is in tablet or display-stand mode. It also includes 4GB RAM and a 256GB SSD.
