2-in-1 Laptops

Whether you are upgrading a laptop or just tired of carrying multiple devices, 2-in-1 laptops are an excellent choice. These have the power of a computer with the portability of a tablet all in one device. Staples® offers a variety of 2-in-1 laptops that come with different processors, hard drives, display sizes, graphics, and other important features.

Find the Right Processor for 2-in-1 Laptops
The overall speed and performance of a 2-in-1 laptop comes from the central processor. Popular choices are Intel® and AMD. For memory-intensive tasks such as gaming or running large programs like photo and video editing software, the fastest 2-in-1 devices use the Intel® Core™ i7 Series. Models ending in HQ or K use four cores and are faster than processors ending in U or Y. If you don't need top performance, the Intel Core i5 is fine for everyday computing tasks like web browsing with multiple tabs, streaming, and running popular programs such as word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software. Budget devices with average performance and a long battery life are available with the Intel Core i3. These are fine for basic web browsing, streaming videos, and checking or composing an email. Like the Intel Core i3, AMD processors are cost-effective for basic web-based computing.

Choose Between Different Hard Drive Types for 2-in-1 Laptops
There are two main types of hard drives: the solid state drive (SSD) and the hard disk drive (HDD.) The difference between the two drives is movement. Hard disks have a spinning platter that uses magnetism to store and retrieve data. The faster the disk spins, the better the drive performs. Drive speed is measured in revolutions per minute (RPMs), and the two most common speeds are 5400 and 7200 RPMs. An SSD doesn't use movable parts. Instead, it runs like a USB memory stick, and it stores your data on a series of microchips. The SSD runs faster than an HDD because it doesn't need to spin.

What Are the Display Sizes Available for 2-in-1 Laptops?
The display sizes for these laptops vary from as small as 10.1 inches to as large as 17.3 inches. For the light device that fits into a backpack, briefcase, or carry-on bag consider a 10.1 to a 12.9-inch display. If you are using the device to give presentations or watch videos, choose a 16 to 17.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 for full high definition video.

Do 2-in-1 Laptops Come With Different Amounts of Memory?
A laptop's performance also depends on random access memory or RAM. Most computers need a minimum of 2GB to run. The amount of RAM varies from 2 to 64GB. For high-performance tasks, such as advanced gaming or running large programs you may need 12GB or more. Most devices come with 4, 6, or 8GB.

How Do 2-in-1 Laptops Connect to Wireless Internet Services?
Most laptops use a Wi-Fi connection. However, if you don't have regular access to Wi-Fi and need internet access, consider a model that's also compatible with 4G and 4G LTE internet service.
