What is a 2-in-1?

Simply put, a 2-in-1 is both a laptop and a tablet combined in one lightweight, portable device. When you can't decide between a laptop or a tablet, consider getting both as part of a 2-in-1 — Best Buy carries a wide variety from all the major brands.

Sometimes referred to as "convertible" or "hybrid" laptops, these innovative devices deliver the processing power and keyboard of a Windows 10 laptop. When you're ready to play, either detach the screen or fold your 2-in-1 into tablet mode to watch movies, play games, read an e-book and more.

You'll typically find more USB ports on a 2-in-1 device than on a traditional tablet, making it easier to transfer files and photos. Plus, it's easy to change modes quickly: Converting from laptop to tablet — standalone or in a display configuration — takes just one simple twist, click, swivel or flip

Benefits of a 2-in-1 Laptop


Whether you're at work or at home, your computing needs might change in a flash. You could use your device in laptop mode to type documents, develop spreadsheets or edit photos and videos. The powerful processor delivers everything you'd expect from a work PC. Then, when you want to take a break, flip the screen to watch a movie or play a game — all in one simple motion.


Most people want to travel light, but sometimes it's hard to decide whether to take your laptop or your tablet along. A 2-in-1 laptop makes it easy to take just one device. So be productive and have some fun while you're out of town.


Depending on the model you purchase, investing in a 2-in-1 laptop can be significantly less expensive than purchasing both a laptop and a tablet.
