Lately, the amount of gadgets one needs to complete daily tasks has grown, and all manufacturers are pulling off new designs to simplify all into one. These efforts have become into tablets, laptops and many other moile devices that rule our networking activity. Someone not much ago, came up with the idea of merging a couple of useful gadgets, and this is how the concept of laptop-tablet hybrid was born, allowing users to easily combine touchscreen, keyboards and the tons of mobile apps out there.
There's been made a list of the 8 best hybrids in stores, find out which the first four ones are in matters of design, features and capabilities
Acer Iconia W510
This tablet has a 10.1-inch IPS touchscreen at 1,280-by-800-pixel resolution. The unit will have a detachable clamshell keyboard dock -- similar to the current W500 -- that doubles as an extended battery, akin to how Asus' Transformer series' docking station functions. Acer is hyping the W510's trimode, which enables users to "touch, type, and view," and the company says the extended battery life should hit up to 18 hours using Windows 8.
Asus Taichi and Transformer
With the Taichi roll out, you might look at it and think it's a standard Ultrabook with a full-size, backlit QWERTY keyboard and trackpad. However, the system has a double-sided display; when the lid is closed, it becomes a multitouch tablet with stylus support. Both screens can operate independently and simultaneously, so it can be shared between two users. The system comes equipped with third-gen Intel CPUs, SSD storage, and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi. Meanwhile, the Transformer Book is a full Intel Core i7 ultrabook that switches instantly into tablet mode when you detach the display. It comes with SSD or standard hard drive, as well as SonicMaster technology for better audio.
Dell XPS Duo 12
At IFA, Dell announced the XPS Duo 12, which boasts a flip hinge to transform the machine from an Ultrabook into a tablet. It features a full HD, 1,920-by-1,280 display, and it comes either with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. Dell noted that the machine is built from "premium materials," such as machined aluminum and carbon fiber, as well as Corning Gorilla Glass for durability.
Fujitsu Stylistic Q702
The Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 comes with an optional keyboard dock, which transforms the touch-enabled tablet display into a laptop. Along with providing a full keyboard, the dock boosts the tablet's battery life from 4.5 hours to 9 hours while adding expansion ports, including USB, Ethernet, and VGA. Weighing in at 1.88 pounds, the Stylistic Q702 includes a third-generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, 4GB of memory, and either a 64GB or 128GB solid-state drive. The 11.6-inch Stylistic Q702 features the latest IPS (In-Plane Switching) display technology for wide viewing angles and color accuracy.
