Those owning a tablet know its worth in gold, for it is quite useful for simple browsing, checking mails, running basic apps, watching movies, etc. With the onus of these simple tasks now lying with tablets, use of notebooks has been restricted to those select occasions, like typing lengthy files, preparing excel/slides or giving presentations, where their connectivity, storage capacity, bigger display, full keyboard and powerful processor have no match.   

Both tablets and notebooks have assumed diverse roles for a user, especially a professional, who can’t go on without either. It is this twin role that the latest phenomena called Hybrid/Convertible PC intends to fill, by combining the powerful and professional set of features of a traditional notebook with those of a touch-screen based tablet.

Either by rotating the screen to 180 degrees with the display facing out in case of convertibles or by detaching the keyboard in hybrids, these new kind of PCs offer the best of both tablets and notebooks. With advanced Intel processors they are more powerful than standalone tablets, but with two devices in one body, they can feel heavy when used as a tablet. Also, do all professionals need such powerful devices for office work? That depends on the kind of work they are doing. For an IT guy, tablets cannot replace notebooks but for a CEO even an android tablet with a detachable keyboard can prove more than sufficient.

 So far only seven Convertible PCs are available in India. Here is a list of them with their specs:
