[updated Dell specs, 29/10]
If you're willing to spend a little more than $1000, you can get a decently powered Windows 8 laptop, such as the the decently-specced Envy M6 or the more powerful Samsung NP350V5C-S09AU.
In the $100-$1500 price range, there's also a single Windows convertible laptop/tablet -- the Samsung ATIV smart PC, which runs a lowly Atom processor. It's essentially not much more than a convertible netbook.
After an all-in-one or a touchscreen laptop? You'll be paying more than $1600.
