The best two-in-one devices offer versatility like no other laptop. Devices like the Surface Pro 8 offer an ultra-flexible work environment where you can type on the go and detach the screen when needed. The segment is growing lately because people value flexibility in performing work. The best two-in-one laptops help you do more than a traditional laptop without a significant increase in size, weight, or price.
Most two-in-ones are convertible laptops, with hinges where the keyboard and trackpad can fold or pivot toward the back of the screen; others are basically a tablet with a detachable keyboard.
Here are three of the best two-in-one laptops you can buy right now.
HP Specter x360 14
Best small 2-in-1 with a 3:2 screen
Co-engineered with Intel for its Evo platform, the Specter x360 14 we tested had fast performance and over 14 hours of battery life. Along with an assortment of privacy features, this is the best touchscreen laptop that has a bright 1920 x 1280 pixel 13.5-inch touchscreen with a 3:2 screen ratio that is about the same as a standard sheet of paper and has about 20% more vertical viewing space than a 16:9 screen. This means you scroll less when working. It also makes it more comfortable to use as a tablet, especially with the included active stylus.

Lenovo Yoga 9i
Best 2-in-1 with 14 and 15.6 inch screens
Whether you opt for the 14-inch or 15.6-inch touchscreen 9i model, you get the best features Lenovo has to offer in a mainstream two-in-one. This includes things like a clear display; speakers you will actually want to use; Thunderbolt 4 for power (on 14-inch model), fast data transfers, and external display support; faster integrated graphics and the option of discrete graphics on the 15.6-inch unit; and an included active stylus stored in the laptop. And this convertible laptop has a sturdy yet lightweight metal body that can be used in laptop or tablet mode.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8
Although it’s not the Surface Laptop, the Surface Pro still hits all the right notes if you’re looking for a versatile Windows tablet that doubles as a laptop. Microsoft recently revised it for the Surface Pro 8, which has a larger 13-inch display, 11th Gen Intel Core processors, and two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports; accessories are sold separately. The Surface Pro 7 is still available for now at a discount, and an updated version called the Surface Pro 7 Plus will remain in the lineup, so you’ll still be able to get the classic Pro design but with new processors.
