Notebookcheck's Top 10 Convertibles

Redaktion (translated by Martina Osztovits), 12/08/2014

December 2014 update. Here you will find the best convertibles reviewed by Notebookcheck in the last few months. Our list of top models is regularly updated, maintained and commented on and should assist in purchase decisions.

For the original German article, see here.

Convertibles, sometimes also called Two-In-One or Multimode-PCs, are not a recent invention. In the business sector, these hybrids of notebook and tablet have been known for a long time, but they eked out a niche existence until recently. With the advent of tablets, manufacturers rediscovered the potential advantages of such devices.

While the first convertibles were relatively heavy devices with severely limited mobility, current CPU and battery technology allows for slim and mobile devices with decent performance. So, they can handle nearly all everyday PC tasks and tablet mode enlarges their field of application. Windows 8 provides the necessary user interface with its tile surface and the known desktop environment for productive use.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Microsoft Surface Pro 3

1st

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 follows the previous Pro models and tries to perfectly bridge the gap between notebook and tablet again. It is primarily up to the beholder how well this has been achieved.
In our first test of a US model, we found a robust and stylish magnesium case. Alike the predecessors', it includes a stand, which can be fixed into different positions. The Type Cover is optionally available for a steep $130, but it should not miss in productive use, although it cannot keep up with a good notebook keyboard. In contrast, an active pen is included.
While the display was throughout convincing in our test, thermal restrictions limit the performance under load. If demanding applications are usual, you'll also have to accept increased surface temperatures and a loud system noise. The subjective performance was still very good. The expected battery life is also good. 8-9 hours is to be expected during web browsing via Wi-Fi. Depending on the configuration, the price of this bundle is about $1000.

Business professional: HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2
Business professional: HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2

2nd

HP's EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 focuses on professional use and uses a familiar convertible solution with a central turn and tilt hinge. In our review, we liked the case, the input devices, and the matte display, although the screen real estate would profit from a higher resolution.
Depending on the configuration, the device also has performance reserves for complex office applications. Unfortunately, the price also increases with the configuration and quickly reaches 2000 Euros (~$2682) and so non-business customers will quickly lose interest. Thanks to a more spacious case compared to many other convertibles, the Revolve 810 G2 does not have problems with prolonged load and always remains at a pleasant temperature and quiet.

Ambitious: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro
Ambitious: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro

3rd

"Ambitious" is the best description of Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro. With a height of 23 millimeter, it is thinnest 360 degrees convertible in the market. With Core M 5Y70 (Broadwell), it also features cutting-edge hardware. The 13-incher features an IPS panel with a resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels. The case only weighs 1.2 kg and feels stable and high-quality in the hands. The tester liked the attractive and functional new hinge, the very good WLAN performance, the comfortable input devices, and the quiet operation. A fast SSD improves the system performance, the CPU calculates fast, but its power consumption is lower than Haswell's. As a result, battery runtimes of above six hours are possible with 44 Wh battery. The Yoga 3 Pro costs 1600 Euro ($1440), but there are also points of critique: heavy CPU and GPU throttling under prolonged load. This alone should not put off prospective buyers. While the display is high-res, you can detect frayed edges and stained color fields at a look closer. The keyboard has a short travel and an unusual layout.

When notebook and tablet fuse: Fujitsu Lifebook T904
When notebook and tablet fuse: Fujitsu Lifebook T904

4th

Fujitsu targets well-funded business customers with its Lifebook T904. Instead of a 360-degrees hinge you get a classic single hinge in the center. The expectations are pretty high for 1800 Euros (~$2413). Fujitsu equips its T904 with a Core i7, large SSD, IGZO panel (2560x1440) and Sierra Wireless AirPrime. The mobile CEO gets good input devices, but they cannot quite keep up with the perfect feedback from the EliteBooks or the ThinkPad T-series devices. The panel with very high contrast and razor-sharp details is not perfect: The brightness could be higher (outdoor use) and the viewing angles could be wider.

5th

The Haswell upgrade of Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11S brings significantly longer battery runtimes, but a performance gain is not noticeable. The device is still bulky and heavy in tablet mode, and the keyboard only features a weak feedback. But, the hinge design is clever, the build quality is stable, and the display has wide viewing angles (IPS).

6th

Many pros make the Asus Transformer Book T300LA interesting: high-end metal chassis, good system performance, very long battery runtimes of more than 10 hours in realistic scenarios, and the good display, which, however, is too dark. You have to do without several features, which the predecessor included: supplement battery and additional hard drive in the keyboard dock.

Entry-level Bay Trail: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 11
Entry-level Bay Trail: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 11

7th

Lenovo tries to offer a compact convertible for a small price. The result is the IdeaPad Yoga 2 11, an 11.6-inch device with the frugal and inexpensive Bay Trail platform, hard drive (ultra-thin) and IPS panel with the standard HD resolution. Similar to all Yoga devices you can open the display by 360 degrees, so the keys are facing downwards when you use it as a tablet, which slightly affects the haptic impression. The automatic lowering of the keyboard that we know from the ThinkPad Yoga is not available in this price range. Massive metal hinges, sturdy case and bright IPS display with a good contrast, we like those aspects. Lenovo also uses a conventional HDD instead of an SSD to keep the price down, which affects the system performance. Another positive aspect is the passive cooling solution. So the perfect Windows tablet for the road and your home? Not quite, the bouncy keyboard and the limited port selection may affect the handling quite a bit.

new hardware in old case: Toshiba Portege Z10t-A2111

8th

The Toshiba Protégé Z10t-A2111 is an expensive business convertible consisting of tabet and keyboard dock. Compared to the previous Portégé Z10t, the exterior did not change much. But, the manufacturer uses Haswell (Core i7 4610Y) inside now. The 11.6-incher delights us with a matte touch panel with strong colors, but the build quality is subpar and the keyboard does not meet the high standards of the high-priced range.

Mainstream: Lenovo Yoga 2 13
Mainstream: Lenovo Yoga 2 13

9th

The Lenovo Yoga 2 13 is a convertible for consumers, which is apparent in price and technology. The 13-incher weighs 1.5 kilogram and costs just under 700 Euro with Core i3 4010U. Thanks to its stable build quality, its display with good color precision, and its easy maintainability, the Yoga 2 13 achieved a good rating. In addition, the connectivity is decent. Unfortunately, the battery life of five hours in the WLAN test is only mediocre and the otherwise very good quality impression of the IPS FHD panel is reduced because the PenTile display is blurry in places. The plastics chassis is by far not as high-quality as the Yoga 3 Pro's.

Best Value Award in December 2014: Aspire Switch 10 SW5-012-13DP with FHD and Dock
Best Value Award in December 2014: Aspire Switch 10 SW5-012-13DP with FHD and Dock

10th

Acer's Aspire Switch 10 SW5-012-13DP is the FHD sibling of the previously reviewed Switch 10 SW5-011-12VU (HD panel). We scrutinized the new IPS panel in our review update and found a bright FHD panel with strong colors, which is unmatched in its price range. The processor got a bit slower, but battery life improved. The device including docking keyboard costs 350 Euro. So, it wins our Best Value Award in December 2014.

Runners-Up

Cheap: Pavilion 13-a093na x360
Cheap: Pavilion 13-a093na x360

Toshiba's convertible solution for beginners (399 Euro) copies the 360 degrees hinge of the Lenovo Yoga and adds frugal netbook hardware to the 11.6 inch chassis of the Satellite Radius 11 L10-B-101. However, the manufacturer does not use an Intel Atom, but a Celeron N2840. The performance is lower than of Atoms. Unfortunately, this is also true for the battery life of just under four hours. The keyboard should have a higher feedback and the chassis should be stabler. Does the Radius 11 not have advantage? Not at all! It comes with a storage capacity of 500 GB. Toshiba does not follow the trend and did not equip the Radius with a small eMMC, but offers many storage space with a conventional HDD.

HP's Envy x2 15-c000ng is definitely not an entry-level device. The 15 inch tablet costs just under 800 Euro. Certainly, its size is unusual among tablets, but its hardware is cutting-edge with Intel Core M 5Y10 (Broadwell). Why did it fail to enter our top list? The build quality is quite good. However, the Envy lacks an SSD and falls behind the high standards of tablet with such in system performance. Prolific writers will not quite like the Folio keyboard. The weight (2.46 kg) is quite high for tablets and convertibles and the performance is low for games (iGPU).

The Envy X2-j001ng is the 13 inch sibling of the 15-inch Envy x2 15. They look alike and use similar hardware. It also comes with Broadwell. But, HP uses a fast 256 GB SSD from Samsung in the 13-incher, which improves system performance. Apart from wide viewing angles, the IPS display with FHD resolution features a high contrast and good colors. Again, the feedback of the keys and the ClickPad is not the best. If you want to type a lot, you won't like the weak feedback of the Folio keys. The tester liked the system performance, the sound, the fan-less design as well as materials and look. The Envy X2-j001ng is more expensive than the 15-incher: just under 1000 Euro.

HP equipped the small, cheap Pavilion 13-a093na x360 with AMD's A-Series A8-6410 (Beema). It is the AMD counterpart to the HP Pavilion 13-a000ng x360. The bright red plastics chassis appears to be robust and durable and the 360 degrees hinge works very well. Again HP uses the following approach: more storage capacity, less performance. But, the Pavilion 13-a093na is sufficient or simple office tasks and older games. The tester did not like the dark, bluish TFT with narrow viewing angles, which is especially unfavorable in tablet mode.
