Discover why 2-in-1 laptops are perfect for students.

When deadline season is upon you, you need a laptop that can help you tackle that workload. It doesn't get more versatile, powerful and stylish than a 2-in-1. Packing the performance of a laptop into the lightweight and portable design of a tablet, they'll be the most reliable studying buddy you've ever had. Find out just what makes 2-in-1s the next-generation in computing and what you need to look out for to find your perfect model.

Portable power

With a 2-in-1, you're free to study on the train, in the library or out in the park. They're designed to be lightweight, so you're able to work smart and pack light. And with a battery that lasts longer than your working day, there's time to wind down with a film or your favourite tunes after your studying session. The Windows 10 operating system is built with 2-in-1s in mind, so you'll be ready and raring to go with tailored software that's easy-to-use whether you’re in tablet or laptop mode.

Conveniently flexible

There are two different types of 2-in-1, both giving you the best that laptops and tablets have to offer. So there’s no need to lumber round more than one device. A convertible laptop has a rotating hinge that lets you easily flip the screen any way you like. Stand it up to watch a movie on the go or lay it flat to get perfect precision when you’re sketching your next masterpiece. A model with a detachable keyboard gives you the familiarity of a laptop and the adaptability of a tablet. Keep the keyboard on when you’re tackling that essay and take it off when you’re out and about and need to keep up to date with your emails.
