LG launches Tab Book Duo Windows 8 tablet convertible

Sony VAIO Duo 13 Review

Sony VAIO Duo 13 Review

The popularity of tablets have posed a solid threat to the PC industry, and in response many 2-in-1 so-called "hybrid" laptops have popped up in increasing numbers that are able to function as both -- as a laptop when some serious work needs to be done, and as a tablet for activities best suited to a hands-on approach: mobile games, artwork, and Web browsing, among others.
