Sony Vaio Tap 20
Sony's new all-in-one -- or is it a tablet? -- is one of the most innovative Windows 8 launch PCs. A 20-inch all-in-one with a battery, the Vaio Tap 20 offers the mobility of a tablet (over a short range, anyway) and the large display of a proper desktop.

The good: By slapping a battery inside a 20-inch touch-screen all-in-one to make the Sony Vaio Tap 20, the company has given birth to a new PC category with great potential in tech-savvy homes.
The bad: The touch screen has some frustrating drag, and Sony made a few missteps among some otherwise reasonable sacrifices for portability and price.
The bottom line: A compelling experiment in tablet-desktop hybridization, the Sony Vaio Tap 20 is a great fit for home tech enthusiasts willing to try something new.
