Asus Chromebook Plus 2-in-1 — $349, was $499

One advantage of going with a Chromebook is that ChromeOS is much less resource intensive, so you can run slightly less powerful hardware, such as the entry-level AMD Ryzen 3 7320C. That should be more than enough for general day-to-day work, as well as getting some productivity work done as well, and the 8GB of RAM should give you a relatively smooth experience. Also, one big positive of using ChromeOS is that it’s great for those who are already in the Google ecosystem, although its worth noting that not all Windows app will be available on ChromeOS, so double-check that your important apps are.

HP Pavilion 2-in-1 — $551, was $580

HP Pavilion x360 15t 2-in-1 Laptop

The HP Pavilion 2-in-1 is an excellent entry-level convertible laptop, especially since you can get it for a little over $500. Of course, you do have to give up a couple of things, such as having a slightly lower-end Intel Core i3, although it shuold be more than enough if you’re just planning to do basic things like browse the web or watch content online. The 8GB of RAM isn’t too bad, although it might struggle with too many apps or tabs open, while the 256GB of storage should be enough for most folks who stream most of their content.

HP Envy x360 2-in-1 — $630, was $860

The HP ENVY x360 14-Inch 2-in-1 with a menu open.

The 16-inch HP Envy x360 2-in-1 looks fairly ordinary at first, but opens way beyond the 120 degrees or so that you’re used to, flipping its screen all the way around back. When completely flipped the keyboard to bottom, you then control the laptop with the included HP USB-C Rechareable MPP2.0 Tilt Natural Silver Pen. This version of the HP Envy x360 2-in-1 includes a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Book3 — $1,101, was $1,550

Samsung’s Galaxy Book3 brings — with the exception of the graphics card — premium hardware to make a quality, touchable (and pen-able, if you purchase an S Pen separately) 2-in-1 suitable for creatives and workers alike. It runs on 16GB of RAM with a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. You’ll have 1TB of SSD storage, but there is also a microSD port (in addition to Thunderbolt 4 and USB-C ports) to give you ample room to store and manipulate video, artwork, and whatever other files you’ll need for work, hobbies, and recreation.

If you need a convertable laptop with a lot more power under the hood, then the Lenovo Yoga 9i is an excellent option, especially since it comes with an Intel Evo Core i7-1360P, a solid higher-end CPU that will easily handle complex productivity and creative tasks. It also comes with a substantial 16GB RAM to give you a great day-to-day experience, and the 14-inch OLED screen is absolutely gorgeous to look at, especially since it runs at a 4k resolution. Unfortunately, the 4k OLED does impact the battery life quite a bit and you’ll only get around 5-6 hours of use before needing to recharge.

16-inch HP Spectre x360 — $1,550, was $1,850

The HP Spectre x360 is a 2-in-1 that feels solidly constructed and doesn’t skimp on quality physical components in the face of getting the 2-in-1 shape right. As our HP Spectre x360 16 review will make clear, that can mean that the tablet mode feels heavy at times, but that shouldn’t scare you away too much. This is a 2-in-1 made for the long term or, to quote our hands-on review, “should last for years of abuse.” This model has 16GB of RAM, 2TB of storage, and use a 13th Gen i7 processor.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 — $2,500, was $2,800

The very recently released Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 has insane stats and a highly convenient folding mechanism that allows the touchpad to be visible at the same time as its screen. It ha a 14.4-inch screen, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. It runs with an Intel Core i7 processor and an RTX 4050. Our Surface Laptop Studio 2 review gave a lot of attention to the special PixelSense Flow display, which is only a small upgrade over the previous version’s display, but will look great for anyone that isn’t changing laptops every time a new model hits the shelves.
