Samsung is really set on making this stylus thing work. The new Series 5 and Series 7 Slate PCs look pretty good—the versions we saw last week weren't final—but they might have a little catching up to do as well.
The Series 5 and 7 look totally fine, by most standards. Pretty good, actually. They're well-thought-out machines that are pretty well designed. But it feels like that just won't be enough for the coming onslaught of Windows 8 gear. The new Vaio Duo looks beautiful, and other converters, like the Lenovo Yoga are already out there looking amazing. So while these are pretty good, we hope that gets bumped up to pretty great by the time they launch, or it could get ugly for Samsung.
