What’s the difference between a laptop and a convertible laptop?
The convertible is equipped with a touchscreen display that you can easily rotate to 360 degrees due to a very mobile hinge. You can use it as a laptop, as a tabletop to share the screen with a co-user, as a tent (to present whatever is on the screen) or as a tablet. Don’t confuse a convertible laptop with a detachable. The latter has the added functionality of detaching the screen completely from the keyboard in order to use it as a tablet, but they’re usually more expensive.
The three convertible laptops we’ve chosen come from Toshiba, Dell and HP and cost just under $400, are all pretty lightweight and ideal for college or school students.
