2-in-1 laptops

What is a 2-in-1 laptop? 

2-in-1 devices combine the form and processing power of a laptop and the portability of a tablet to offer a unique, flexible product. They can be used as either a tablet or a laptop, which makes them perfect for people who need to work on the go, and who don’t want to carry around a bulky laptop.

What kinds of 2-in-1 laptops are there?

Typically, 2-in-1 laptops come in two forms. Detachable devices allow the screen to be detached from the keyboard unit, and can be used as a tablet when the keyboard isn’t plugged in. Convertible devices are designed so the screen can move and swivel in different directions, while still being attached to the main body/keyboard of the device.

What are the benefits of using 2-in-1 laptops? 

  • Flexible, portable and often lightweight
  • Sleek, attractive designs
  • Suitable for work and entertainment
  • Hybrid versatility - they combine the processing power of a laptop with the look and feel of a tablet
