With technology becoming more powerful and compact, and a large amount of the population that is always on-the-go, it’s no surprise that 2-in-1 laptops are gaining popularity. These devices take the best of the worlds of both laptops and tablets, combining them into 1 device that can do almost everything. Here are some attributes which make a 2-in-1 a must-have.
Laptops range in size from about 13 to 17 inch display sizes, which while not huge, can be cumbersome to carry around all day. Traditional laptops also tend to weigh over 2 pounds, and if you carry a separate tablet with you, they weight 1 pound or more. A 2-in-1 tends to have a display size between that of a laptop and a tablet, so in the 11 inch range, which makes them large enough to be productive, but small enough to easily carry in your hand, or bag with no trouble.
2-in-1 devices generally have a keyboard that detaches, creating a tablet, or has a keyboard that folds around behind the display. Whatever the format may be, this offers unmatched versatility in all situations. When typing, or working at a desk, the device functions like a traditional laptop, and when you need to get things done on-the-go, or just want to browse the internet or play a game, the keyboard moves out of the way, giving you the convenience of a tablet.
A big limiting factor in a traditional tablet is the processing power. They are just too small to use a processor powerful enough to do any real work. While a 2-in-1 is smaller than a traditional laptop, many of them use processors designed specifically for their application, allowing you to multitask effortlessly, without hurting your battery life, which is about 9.5 hours on average.
A 2-in-1 may not be for everybody, but they aren’t a gimmick, and are here to stay. For somebody who travels a lot, or is always on-the-go, a 2-in-1 offers many of the advantages of laptops and tablets, rolled into one convenient device.
