7 Tablets That Will Make You Toss Your Laptop

Sony Xperia Z

Sony has lagged behind other computer makers in the tablet market, but the company's new device could reverse its fortunes. The Sony Xperia Z is the lightest and thinnest 10-inch tablet yet, according to the company. But, that's not all; the device comes with an HD display powered by Sony's Mobile Bravia Engine 2 for enhanced visuals. The Xperia Z also runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz with 2 GB of RAM. The tablet is even water resistant in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The Xperia Z will be available this spring starting at $499 for the 16-GB model.
