The best laptops that can also be used as tablets

Here are the best laptops that also work well as tablet devices

Laptop makers have come up with many different designs to take advantage of the touch generation, and also Windows 8's Modern UI interface. There isn't one standard 2-in-1 design on the market. Instead, there is a variety of implementations that allow some laptops to be turned into tablets, some being better than others.

In this list, we're including only products that are laptops first and foremost, but which can also be turned into tablets. We're not including tablet-first products, such as those with a detachable keyboard base, but instead dedicated laptops that have special hinges to allow them to transform.

The products you see below all have innovations that allow the screen to flip, swivel, or tilt all the way around the base in order to create a slate form factor so that you can easily use them as a tablet.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
