This week we got our hands on several new Windows 8 notebooks with price tags under $500, and we were pleased to see at least one rise above the expectations of a budget laptop. We were less impressed by the Chromebook Pixel, Google’s beautiful but expensive new flagship notebook. Read on for an overview of all the latest gear, including a handy little accessory that snagged our Editor’s Choice.
The Ionic Keyboard Tablet Leather Case gets style points for its great-looking leather exterior, plus the typing experience is pretty solid. We also appreciate that the keyboard is removable. It doesn't get much better than this for less than $35. While some keys are on the small side, overall the Ionic keyboard case is a great value.
