These days there are plenty of options available for people who are looking to buy a new laptop. Not just laptops but also there are several Windows based Tablets which can perform all the tasks a normal PC can. So the real confusion starts when you start thinking about laptop or tablet. Well, in 2014 you don’t really have to worry about that since there are various convertibles available which can be used as laptops as well as tablets. One can easily detach its keyboard and use it as a tablet with almost all features that are available in any regular Windows 8 laptop.
We all know that tablets are an amazing and latest innovation in tech industry and believe me, a tablet which can be converted into a laptop within seconds is the best of best in 2014. These kinds of convertibles are usually of 9-11 inches and their prices are more than regular laptops. Most of convertible laptops in 2014 come with pre-installed Windows 8 since that’s the only Windows OS which supports touch screen display. So let’s have a look at top 5 best convertible laptops of 2014.
5. Dell XPS 12
Dell XPS 12 is certainly one of the oldest convertible laptops and was the best convertible in 2013. However, in 2014 due to plenty of reasons it has been rated less but still is among the top and reliable convertibles. It entirely looks like a regular notebook while using as a laptop and of course as a tablet while using it in one piece. Its screen is very impressive which can flip however you want and can be reversed as much as you want. That’s the only reason which is still unique and makes this laptop-tablet one of the best convertibles in 2014. It packs i5 processor, 128 GB SSD and 4GB DDR3 RAM.
4. Samsung ATIV Tab 3
To be completely honest, Samsung Tab 3 is not really a convertible laptop. Most probably it’s just a tablet with 2GB RAM and Intel processor. Anyways, a keyboard is packed within its accessories which clearly make this tablet usable as a laptop. Other than keyboard, it also comes with a stylus which helps people to write anything they want in their own handwriting. Its storage is kind of low (64 GB) but still I like this convertible and have been using from last 2 months. In my personal experience it’s the best tablet-laptop if you’re looking for something affordable yet effective.
3. Sony VAIO Duo 13
Sony VAIO has been one of the best laptop brands for more than a couple of years. Sony VAIO Duo 13 is completely different in style if you look at other convertibles in this list. The Duo 13’s display can slide and convert into tablet or laptop whatever you want. Its insides include Intel i5 processor, 128 GB SSD and 4GB DDR3 RAM. Currently this model is available in two colors, white and black. This specific device can be customized as per your wish but for some unknown reason its customizing feature doesn’t come cheap.
2. Lenovo Yoga Pro 2
While Sony VAIO Duo allows its users to slide the screen, Dell XPS allows flipping; Yoga Pro 2 allows its users to flip the display completely as you can see in the above picture. This feature is really kind of impressive and has been capturing lot of attention. I know and understand that flipping the display entirely will expose its keyboard but still it’s among the best convertibles in 2014. Best feature of this tablet-laptop other than its flipping screen is certainly its battery life which can last for more than 9 hours. This 13-inch device packs Intel i7 processor which makes it even more impressive and best in 2014.
1. Acer Aspire R7
You guys must have already heard about Acer Aspire S7 which is one of the slimmest and best ultrabook in 2014. Well, Acer Aspire R7 is not much different when it comes to slimness and of course it’s a convertible laptop which can be turned into a tablet anytime you want. Aspire R7 tops this list of best convertibles in 2014 because of its sturdy, attractive and solid body plus its price is kind of affordable. Only thing I didn’t like about R7 is its touch pad which is placed on upper side of keyboard. Battery life is kind of decent as well and while testing it last for more than 6 hours. All in all, I’d say go for it you want an innovative design and affordable hybrid laptop.
