If you’re looking for a new laptop, in particular something that’s super lightweight and portable, then you’ve probably seen those 2-in-1 (or hybrid) laptops that can transform into an extra large tablet. You’ve probably thought how cool it would be to replace your old-school “clamshell” laptop, tablet and/or ebook reader with just a single device. But do 2-in-1’s make good tablets, and are all of those other modes you’ve seen in the reviews actually useful, or just gimmicks that some guy in marketing invented? Are 2 in 1 laptops worth it for the extra price you’ll pay? This post will hopefully help you decide.
