    Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows 10) Review

    It’s rare that we get surprised by a hardware release these days, but Lenovo managed at IFA this year when they introduced the Yoga Book. The Yoga Book looks like a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet convertible, using the same 360-degree watchband hinge found on the Yoga Pro series, but there’s one thing missing — a keyboard. Instead, the […]

    Lenovo’s Miix 510 is a Dead Ringer for the Microsoft Surface

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Since Microsoft laid the groundwork for tablet-first 2-in-1s with the Surface, just about all of the usual laptop makers have put out their takes on the idea. Lenovo had something with the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, but it was a little underpowered compared to the Surface Pro 4, […]

    Lenovo X1 Tablet Review

    Lenovo is no stranger to the 2-in-1 market — the Yoga series is still the shining example of how it’s done — but we haven’t seen as much from them in the tablet-first style. Devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro are basically supercharged tablets that can become laptop replacements with soft, detachable keyboard covers. They tend to […]

    Asus Takes on the Microsoft Surface With the Transformer 3 and Transformer 3 Pro (Hands-On)

    If the ZenBook 3 was Asus’ shot at Apple’s MacBook, their new Transformer 2-in-1s are definitely shots at Microsoft’s Surface and Surface Pro. The design is very similar to Microsoft’s excellent 2-in-1s down to the backside kickstand, but an impressive amount of power could give many reason to consider Asus when going shopping this year.

    Alcatel Plus 10 is an LTE-Connected 2-in-1 Device

    2-in-1 devices are pretty terrific as travel companions, staying lightweight while providing just enough power for a decent laptop computing experience. So, it’s kind of mystery why more of them don’t have LTE connectivity (besides the need to keep the price down). Alcatel thinks this problem is their way into the 2-in-1 device category, and […]
