What are the prices of each? I would likely go for the cheaper one just due to my simple uses and they are all Win8 touchscreens. Are they all without keyboards too?

Oh if I wasn't gonna build my own desktop. Won't be suitable for me cos I do photography on it .. Generally speaking a cheaper one with an optional snap on keyb.

Spectre is nice, as it the Surface although surface isn't to hot for me because of it's limited support and high price point in NZ. If I was in the US though I'd go for it. The lenovo yoga is also right up there in my top 3 since it very nicely performs as a laptop and a tablet where as the surface is really primarily a tablet and the Spectre a Notebook.

Where's the "other" option?

I would, not that I have any intention of getting any of the above, get an Ipad, Nexus or ASUS laptop.

Nexus 7 or 10, depending on budget / needs ;-)

Been playing with the Nexus 10 I imported for my brother, daaaaaaaamn they're nice tablets! Makes my N7 feel small :p

Picked the tap 20, but ASUS Zenbook would be my favourite if listed.
