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.

Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
