Best upcoming tablets in 2012

The best tablets still to come in 2012, from Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 to the Acer Iconia Tab A700.

Apple's new iPad may still be the dominant force in the tablet market, but there is plenty of choice from other manufacturers.

We round up the best upcoming tablets in 2012, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and its "S-Pen" stylus, to the Acer Iconia Tab A700, which boasts a high resolution of 1920x1200.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

The S Pen certainly adds a new dimension to the Galaxy Note 10.1 and we like the bundled apps that Samsung has included. Once you look past the S Pen, however, you're left with a tablet that doesn't offer anything particularly exceptional. Ultimately, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is an average Android tablet with a stylus. That just isn't good enough in such a competitive market.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
