Looking at the market, so after researching some indepth reviews, I categorized what I believe to be some of the best hybrids on the market as of Oct, 2016.
The three best hybrid laptop/tablets are
- HP Spectre x360
- Samsung ATIV Book 9 Spin
- Lenovo Yoga 900
When you go for a laptop for this category, you’ll want to take a look at a comfortable screen size, and less heat so you won’t burn your hands while holding it. The 13inch is probably most relevant and appropriate in display size. The Spectre is said to have the best build and design, while heat issues, and sturdy has stood out as common issues (for tablet mode). The Samsung Spin has been said to be a great contender, but graphics card seems to be a limiting factor. Yoga 900 while it may not have a attractive build, it certainly has a well known brand with great build form factor and size perfect for tablet mode.
The biggest things to watch out in this market is Optane-equipped laptops (faster than SSDs) with Kaby Lake (the new processor with a margin of minor performance gain). These are expected to hit the market in 2017.
