What is 2 in 1 laptop?
Intel 2 in 1 is the latest generation of laptops with several characteristics:
- It is thin and lightweight, weight is only 1KG+ (some less than 1KG!)
- It is both a tablet and a laptop. You can easily switch in between different modes for your usage.
- It runs full desktop operating system (Hello, Windows!), therefore you can install and use all your desktop software on a 2 in 1.
- It has long battery life, up to 10 hours per charge.
Due to its slim body, 2 in 1 has less Input/Output (I/O) ports than old clamshell laptop. Most 2 in 1 are limited to 1 or 2 USB ports and a video out port. The good news is that you can easily connect a docker/hub to extend the number of I/O ports.
2 in 1 can be categorized into 2 in 1 Detachable and 2 in 1 Convertible. Both are hybrid devices with features of tablet and laptop, the different is detachable keyboard or not.
2 in 1 Detachable
You should consider a 2 in 1 Detachable if you want to use desktop software on a tablet.
Though, many desktop software also has a mobile app version for phone/tablet but they are lite version with stripped features. A 2 in 1 Detachable runs full-featured Windows operating system, thus supporting all your desktop software full features.
2 in 1 Detachable does not have a permanently attached keyboard, making it looks more like a mobile tablet than a laptop. Some detachable keyboards add features to 2 in 1, such as more I/O ports, extra battery, and even a discrete graphics adapter(Surface Book).

2 in 1 Convertible
2 in 1 Convertible is more flexible than clamshell laptop. It can quickly converts from laptop into tablet, while keeping the keyboard attached.
Depends on the 2 in 1’s design, you either flip, swivel, or slide it to switch in between different modes.
You can use a 2 in 1 Convertible in 4 different modes: laptop, tablet, reverse laptop mode, and tent mode. Below is how I use the different modes:
- laptop mode — this is the “keyboard mode” to get your work done.
- tablet mode — “Surfing Mode” for web browsing without a keyboard but touch screen display.
- reverse laptop mode — this is my “movie watching” mode to enjoy high resolution video in close distance.
- tent mode — Another “movie watching” mode but for tight space, like flight seat.
