In a Microsoft-centric world, few people (if any) are going to switch from Office to WordPerfect, but if you already have it, you'll want the latest version, Corel WordPerfect Office X7 ($249; upgrade $159).

The app also lets you save documents to standard ebook formats and create PDF forms with fill-in-fields. It also adds some awkwardly implemented but potentially terrific new features that I hope will get better in future versions.

Yoga Tabs are known for what Lenovo calls their "Multimode Design" – in short, rather than housing its battery behind the display, the Yoga Tab features a battery cylinder and kickstand. This not only keeps the Yoga Tab remarkably thin, but it also allows it to take on various forms, from "Stand" for watching movies and video to "Tilt" for typing and gaming.
