85% Toshiba Portégé Z20t-C-121 Detachable Review

Business device with stamina. Toshiba primarily did a facelift with the Portégé Z20t-C: The C models come with Skylake processors now and bring a Type-C USB port (USB 3.1 Gen 1). Despite a price north of about 2000 Euros (~$2234), the device is not flawless.

81% Dell Inspiron 13 7359-4839 Convertible Review

Office acrobat. Dell's Inspiron 13 7000 consumer series has a new member. The most recent convertible in a compact 13-inch size continues the tried casing design and is furnished with the latest Skylake hardware and an SSD. The silver-colored device convinces technically, but its input devices and screen are not completely free of some annoying weaknesses.

78% Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 310-10ICR Convertible Review

Miixed bag. Lenovo's 10.1-inch IdeaPad Miix 310 is a detachable primarily designed to augment - and not replace - a user's existing Windows system. The performance is perfectly adequate for word processing and web browsing on-the-go - but the screen could be much brighter.

78% Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga 20GQ-000EUS Workstation Review

Absolute silence. A liquid cooling system in a convertible does not work? Of course it does!
