What is a 2-in-1 laptop?

2-in-1 laptops are convertible laptops, 2-in-1PCs, or simply 2-in-1s. These laptops are becoming more and more popular because they are both a laptop and tablet. 2-in-1 computers are smaller computers but more budget-friendly. Some laptops are like 2 in 1s because of the flip-around touch screens. However, some people find that some laptops are too bulky and prefer something thin, light, and still have the laptop's features - hence the 2-in-1 computer.

How does a 2-in-1 laptop differ from a regular laptop?

A 2-in-1 computer is built like a laptop but is thinner and has internal components such as CPU, battery and storage, and external slots for DVD and USB. But the 2-in-1 laptops offer more viewing and input options.

Below are some more examples of how 2-in-1 laptops differ from regular laptops.

  • • Touch Screen - all 2-in-1 laptops have a touch screen. Some touch screen laptops have special hinges that allow the screen to flip 180 degrees and fold into a tablet-style. Other 2-in-1 laptops are centered around the touch screen with a hidden keyboard. These laptops have a flexible cover, or it flips out.

  • • Keyboards - If the computer does not have a physical keyboard - it is not a 2-in-1 laptop. The type of keyboard on the computer can help define the difference between a 2-in-1, such as:

    • • If the keyboard is attached to the laptop - it is a convertible laptop. These models have hinges that can flip the lid and turn it into a tablet.
    • • A hybrid 2-in-1 laptop has a detached keyboard, which allows the touch screen to be used as a stand-alone tablet.

  • • Operating System and Software - 2-in-1 laptops are made to have more features than just a tablet. A full PC has an operating system such as Windows 10 that can run both mobile-style and regular PC programs. Some 2-in-1 laptops (especially those more like a tablet) may run on web-oriented operating systems such as Chrome OS.

  • Processing Power - with a large battery and cooling options – many 2-in-1 laptops feature fast, multi-core CPUs like high-end laptops.
