dellxps-620x394.png hash=ZwEwBTV0AQ&upscale=1With the growing popularity of tablet computers, a new First World Problem has started rearing its ugly head: When you’re heading out the door, do you grab your tablet or laptop?

You have a busy day ahead of you so you want to be able to get lots done, but you also want flexibility and an easy form factor for entertainment and browsing.

The solution is simple: Get a 2-in-1 device. You’ll get the ultra-productive capabilities of a laptop combined with the option of converting to a tablet form factor.

When you’re at your favourite coffee shop and need to finish off a project or do some writing, it’s hard to beat the functionality of a laptop. After you’re done with work and want to read a digital magazine while sipping your macchiato, a tablet fits the bill perfectly.

Employ the keyboard and trackpad for higher words per minute and pinpoint precision, then either undock the keyboard or swivel it around behind (depending on which model you have) and use the touchscreen display as a fully-functional tablet. These versatile devices will fit your needs, whatever your needs are from moment to moment.

Since these 2-in-1 devices come preloaded with a version of Windows 8 you’ll be able to take advantage of the touch-optimized operating system that also works wonderfully with a keyboard and trackpad. The latest Microsoft OS also provides robust performance and a smart interface that puts all of your most important information right at your fingertips.
