The Best Windows 10 2-in-1 Tablets of 2017 so far

The Best Windows 10 2-in-1 Tablets of 2017 so far

Last week in Shanghai, away from the very scrutinizing eyes of Western media, Microsoft unveiled the New Surface Pro, a.k.a. not the Surface Pro 5. Reception has been mixed, ranging from "this should have been called the Surface Pro 5" to "meh". Fortunately, Microsoft's "tablet that can replace your laptop" is no longer the only game in town. In fact, there's quite a few of them right now. We take a long at some of the most recent and most enticing 2-in-1 options so far this year to see which one might be the best for your mobile Windows 10 needs.

Surface Pro 4 vs Surface Pro: Is it worth the upgrade?

Surface Pro 4 vs Surface Pro: Is it worth the upgrade?

We've been waiting about a year and a half for a new Surface Pro, and a couple of days back, Microsoft finally revealed it. Unlike the others, this isn't a numbered entry in the line up, with Microsoft simply referring to it as the Surface Pro. Looking at side-by-side lists of specifications, the new Surface Pro and the Surface Pro 4 seem to be quite similar, so are there enough differences between the two to warrant an upgrade?

Missed the big Surface Pro reveal? Now you can re-live it

Missed the big Surface Pro reveal? Now you can re-live it

Microsoft's big Surface Pro announcement this week saw the long-anticipated update of its tablet, but you'd be forgiven for missing the whole thing. The decision to hold the event in China meant that you'd have needed to get up pretty early in order to watch the livestream from North America. That's a shame, as Microsoft devices chief Panos Panay spared no enthusiasm around why the Surface Pro should be in your bag.

Chuwi SurBook challenges the Surface Pro at the best possible time

Chuwi SurBook challenges the Surface Pro at the best possible time

Microsoft has just announced the New Surface Pro and if you were expecting something groundbreaking, you probably went home disappointed. Sure, it has its fair share of small upgrades and new features, but even Microsoft itself didn't call it the Surface Pro 5 probably for that reason. While the new 2-in-1 will remain a sort of reference device, Microsoft has left the door open for other PC makers to try and do one better. It is at this time that Chinese OEM Chuwi is launching its SurBook, whose name is an obvious reference to Microsoft's Surface line. But while some might consider the timing of the launch ill-fated, given the New Surface Pro reveal, the other side of the coin is that the stars are actually aligning in Chuwi's favor.

Surface Pro has some great news (and some bad)

Surface Pro has some great news (and some bad)

At first glance, Microsoft has knocked the new Surface Pro out of the park. Coming hot on the heels of the Surface Laptop, the tablet-that's-a-notebook (and which mustn't be called the Surface Pro 5, oh no) could've been overshadowed by its Alcantara-clad clamshell sibling. Instead, Microsoft has gone down the wishlist of existing owners and ticked all the boxes. Well, all apart from one.

Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Review: A premium 2-in-1 with a price to match

You wait for one premium 2-in-1 Windows 10 hybrid, and along come a whole selection at once. Samsung is hoping the Galaxy Book 12-inch will catch your eye out of a growing market, promising the latest in digital S Pen technology plus more processing power than you might expect from such a skinny slate. Question is, does the Galaxy Book do enough to warrant its $1,129.99 price tag?

This is the New Microsoft Surface Pro

This is the New Microsoft Surface Pro

As expected, Microsoft didn't announce a new Surface Pro 2-in-1 at its Shanghai event. It, instead, announce "The New Surface Pro". No number this time, perhaps to hide the fact that this Surface Pro might not be worthy of a bump in digit. That said, with the refinements that Microsoft bestowed on this New Unnumbered Surface Pro, it still deserves to be given a deeper look, especially for those upgrading from a much older Surface Pro model.

The HP Spectre x2 wants to solve your Surface Pro frustrations

The HP Spectre x2 wants to solve your Surface Pro frustrations

Microsoft has left the Surface Pro to languish, unloved, and HP isn't going to let an opportunity like that pass it by. Welcome, then, the HP Spectre X2, the latest in the laptop company's range of touchscreen 2-in-1s. With the body of a tablet - and a 12.3-inch, 3,000 x 2,000 resolution one at that - and the flexibility of a magnetically-attached keyboard, HP is hoping you'll forget all about your Surface Pro dreams.

Panasonic Toughbook 33 rugged 2-in-1 flaunts 3:2 display
