Transformers: 2-in-1s face off
CAN’T DECIDE BETWEEN A LAPTOP AND A TABLET? WHY NOT HAVE BOTH? WE TEST 12 HYBRID 2-IN-1S.
IT’S FAIR TO say that 2-in-1s tend to divide computer users into camps. Some people love them — they provide the ultimate in versatility, being a tablet when you need a touch screen and a laptop for when you have some serious typing to do. Other people think that you’re just getting the worst of both worlds and prefer separate devices.
We can say that 2-in-1s have got quite a bit better in the past year or two. They’ve become lighter, better performers and more usable in both forms. Some of the really premium products make excellent tablets and ultrabooks both, with good battery life and performance, as well as highly usable tablet and laptop modes. Unfortunately, those premium products also tend to be very expensive.
This month, we’ve looked at some of the top 2-in-1s available on the market today, with prices ranging from just under $1,000 to well over $4,000.
