    Yup, good choices.

  • Jerom Hamilton

    My first choice will be the Asus T100 because of its price and battery life. Who doesn’t love a longer battery? I guess most of the tablet laptop user think of this before buying a gadget but when it comes to specification I’ll go with Dell XPS since I’ve tested it and I love it.

  • KurtStockton

    I want to know which 2-1 is your choice? i know all of them are so cool and I think this is where the laptop going to be since it is more way cooler than having a big bulk laptop.

  • Ferdz Osborn

    I’m a student but I will definitely will go for the best value and best specification. I wonder if Samsung has something to compete with this three.

  • Ferdz Osborn

    You were right and I also have the same choice among the three mentioned above. Have you tried it yourself? Will it last 24 hours with wifi on?

  • Sheila Scharf

    Oh my! I can’t decide which should I get for my mom because she wants to have a tablet but I end up reading this article which is pretty amazing since there are 2 in 1 already in the market so I think I will go for 2 in 1 than getting a simple tablet.

  • Howard

    How do you call a tablet/laptop/desktop? I think computers are now getting smaller and smaller.

  • Sandy

    Sony should lower their price for their consumer because people will pick Asus for its reasonable price because people are not buying if their price are too high. So far now, I disregard the specs and name so i’ll pick Asus as the best one to buy this Christmas unless if you are rich.

  • Andrei Santos

    I’m surprised to see that Dell XPS is more expensive than Sony Vaio tap11.

  • Lamar Marquez

    tabtoptop <- Just kiddin! I think a tablet should stay as a tablet while pc remains a pc.

    The Asus Transformer seems like the best choice. 🙂

  • David

    I’d choose the ASUS T100 – the price makes it very attractive.

  • Cheryl Larimer

    I like the IdeaPad Yoga 11S because it is a lightweight and the ASUS Transformer Book T100 for the detachable keyboard.

  • jpollarddmz

    I would go with the Yoga for the power and battery life

  • George Malouf

    Love the Yoga

  • Amy Coltrain

    I find it all kind of confusing, but the Yoga seems very popular so I’d go with that!

  • mrcapncaveman

    I admit after going through all of them I chose the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga
    11s, Quite honestly it surprised me too! Ive heard so many good things
    about the Dell XPS and the Sony Vaio Tap. I really never thought that
    Lenovo had anything even close to the other two. I admit, today Ive had
    my eyes opened to another whole possibility! Thank you!
