Dell Inspiron Duo

While Apple fans are stuck choosing between the magic of the iPad or the impossibly thin curves of the MacBook Air, PC users can get the best of both worlds in the Dell Inspiron Duo ($550). This hybrid netbook/tablet features a flip-around 10.1-inch screen that functions as a normal display in notebook mode, but becomes the touch-friendly basis for Dell's customized, media-friendly duo Stage software when flipped to the outside. Windows 7 Home Premium, two USB ports, an integrated webcam, and an Intel Atom processor round out the specs, which sit right in between the two aforementioned fruity options.
