Over the decades, one of the major changes in technology has been size and portability. We’ve seen computers reduce in size from desktops to laptops down to tablets. But why choose between a tablet and a laptop when you can have them both in a single form factor. Here is a run-down of the best 2-in-1 laptops of 2019.

2-in-1 laptops are not just lightweight; they also have very good battery life compared to the traditional PCs and honestly they’re better looking anyways. They are also very costly, with the premium one’s going for over $1000, but there are cheaper ones too such as the Lenovo Yoga 730. Certainly, all the picks here are touchscreen laptops that can be folded 360 degrees to be used as tablets.

1. LG Gram 2-in-1 14″ – $1479

Best light weight

Best 2-in-1 laptops of 2019 - LG Gram 14"

The 14-inch LG Gram 2-in-1 is not really as portable in tablet mode as some of the other options on this list but it is great convertible laptop. It weighs about 2.5 pounds which is lighter than most convertibles with the same screen size and even smaller.

Its lightweight is not the only selling point of this device, as it also has great battery life. The LG Gram is listed to have a 21-hour battery life, but that number could drop with heavier usage.

Also, it has a great and vivid display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Needless to say the display is touchscreen and oh, there is an included LG Stylus Pen (Take note Microsoft!) that offers a precise writing or drawing experience.

When it comes to hardware, this device is powerful for a 2-in-1. It packs an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage all in that 0.7-inch thick form factor. With hardware and design like that, this definitely makes the list of the best 2-in-1 laptops in 2019.

2. Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 – $1479

Best 15.6” convertible

This is one of the best Ultrabooks money can buy in 2019 and it is drop-dead gorgeous. Also, the XPS 15 packs impressive power and an ultra-thin design in a near bezel-less form factor. This device has been one of the most coveted 2-in-1 laptops in 2019, with a Radeon RX Vega graphics card. This gives you a convertible laptop on which you can do productivity tasks, some gaming and also do some photo or video editing.

The battery lasts about 12 hours on a full charge which is enough for a full day’s work. The display is capable of producing rich and vivid images with great detail and has brightness levels up to 400 nits . It also comes in 3 options; a 4k, Ultra HD touch and a 1080p non-touch screen which all come at different prices.

Despite having an aluminum body, the laptop stays relatively cool through most tasks thanks to its great cooling system. This is one of the most premium 2-in-1 laptops out there. It is pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Specifications: CPU: Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: Radeon RX Vega M GL (4GB HMB2) | RAM: 8GB – 16GB | Storage: 128GB – 512GB PCIe SSD | Weight: 4.2 pounds

3. Microsoft Surface Go – $400

Best Portable and inexpensive 2-in-1

The Microsoft Surface Go has a beautiful 1800 x 1200 display which is significantly impressive at its price level. The display of the Surface Go is my favorite part of the device as it is detachable and great for watching movies and content in tablet mode.

At 1.1 pounds, it is really easy to carry around and can fit in almost any bag. It also has an optional keyboard and touchpad with a matte finish which is very comfortable to type on. The Surface Go supports Windows Hello, which makes logging in a breeze. The battery lasts about 6 hours which is mediocre but it gets the job done especially for the price.

Specifications: CPU: Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y | GPU: Intel HD 615 |Storage: 64GB/128GB | RAM: 4GB/8GB | Size: 9.7 x 6.9 x 0.3 inches | Display: 10-inch, 1800 x 1200-pixel | Weight: 1.2 pounds

4. Microsoft Surface PRO 6 – $1088

Best Detachable 2-in-1

Best 2-in-1 laptops of 2019 - Microsoft Surface 6

Microsoft has been a step ahead when it comes to 2-in-1 laptops and at the top of its Surface Pro series, is the Surface Pro 6. It is the best so far – packing a quad-core CPU in a thin and lightweight device as well as some cool accessories too.

It has the same design as last year’s Surface Pro but the laptop has gained up to 2 hours more in battery life, making it last 9 hours on a full charge which takes about 160 minutes from 0-100%. The Surface Pro 6 has a vivid and bright 12.3-inch display which is great for watching content.

It is important to note that the attachable keyboard and pen are sold separately. It is also available in matte black which gives it a classic look. The cheapest configuration will set you back $899 while the most expensive version costs $2299. It is quite expensive but worth every penny if you want one of the best 2-in-1 on the market.

Keys Specs — CPU: Intel Core i5/Core i7 | GPU: Intel UHD 620 | RAM: 8GB/16GB | Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB | Display: 12.3-inch, 2736 x 1824-pixel | Size: 11.5 x 7.9 x 0.3 inches | Weight: 1.7 pounds/2.4 pounds (with keyboard).

5. Yoga C930 – $1299

Best 14 inch with little compromise

The Yoga C930 has a gorgeous design, slim and sleek, long battery and fast performance just like its predecessors. In addition, the device packs new features such as the in-chassis stylus slot and a sliding webcam cover. Another change is the unique speaker hinge that enables the laptop to convert into a tablet and also provides great sound no matter what orientation the laptop is in. Lenovo didn’t cut any corners on the Yoga C930.

The Yoga C930 also comes with a 4k display model which gives it that high-end viewing experience, decent gaming and also great for photo editing and other productivity tasks.

6. HP ENVY X2 – $700

Best battery life

Best 2-in-1 laptops of 2019 - HP envy X2

The HP Envy X2 is an elegant 12.3-inch hybrid laptop with a monstrous battery life of up to 22 hours. This is possible as it is the first Windows 10 2-in-1 to use the ARM architecture Snapdragon 835 CPU from Qualcomm, which has been used mostly in mobile phones.  The trade-off is less power than its counterparts at this price point. But if you need a hybrid for watching content, light gaming and productivity tasks then it’s definitely worth looking at.

The battery life is the main selling point of the device but that’s not all. It also comes in a thin and attractive design. The size of this thing makes the battery life even more impressive. The laptop is also 4G LTE capable, giving you options when there’s no Wi-Fi available. In addition, its speakers are tuned by Bang & Olufsen which provides clear and loud audio.

Specifications: CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Graphics: Adreno 540 RAM: 8GB Screen: 12.3-inch WUXGA+ LED IPS (1,920 x 1,280) Storage: 256GB SSD
