Notebookcheck's Top 10 Convertibles

Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 07/08/2017

January 2018 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, also known as two-in-one or multi-mode PCs, are hybrids that can be used as a tablet or a laptop. There are many different types: docking tablets with a keyboard base, slider solutions over a fixed keyboard unit or clamshell chassis with a 360-degree hinge. Depending on their requirements, prospective buyers will certainly find the most appropriate solution for their needs. Many manufacturers offer docking tablets as well as 360-degree solutions. Lenovo has been a pioneer with its Yoga models for business and consumer sectors.

Editors' Comments

Potential buyers who want a Windows tablet will not want to get stuck in the very first app due to the low performance of their device. Thus, there are many devices with real SSDs and Core m or Core i processors (with/without fan) on the market. All models listed in this top list offer notebook performance - at least, almost all.

11-10-2017: The Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB-80Y7 (87%) just misses the ranking. The 13.9-inch model is equipped with a Kaby Lake-Refresh i7-8550U and is Lenovo's consumer flagship model, which can retail for up to 2,300 Euros depending on the configuration. If you are interested in the HP Spectre x360 or the Dell XPS 13 should have a look at the Yoga 920 as well.

12-07-2017: The Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB (here in review) just misses the ranking. It is a shame, because the 13-inch system utilizes an excellent case with good looks, and the performance of the new Kaby Lake-R chip does not have to hide behind the latest Dell XPS. However, there are several problems, like throttling, the missing card reader, and the limited maintainability.

Acer's Spin 5 SP515-51GN (here in review) misses the ranking by quite a margin (82%). We still want to mention it since it is the only 15-inch convertible with such a powerful GPU like the GeForce GTX 1050. This system definitely has multimedia ambitions in combination with the quad-core i7-8550U (Kaby Lake Refresh).

01-12-2018: Lenovo's Yoga 720-13IKB (here in review) just misses the Top 10 with a rating of 86.6%. The Kaby Lake Refresh update of the 13-inch Yoga 720 features quad-core performance (Core i7-8550U), but the Turbo is only available for short periods. The PWM flickering as well as the mediocre luminance were bigger problems. Otherwise, the new Yoga 720-13IKB is an excellent convertible, which is not even very expensive compared to the rivals.

The smaller sibling of the 720-13IKB is probably the 12-inch Lenovo Miix 520 (i5-8250U, 82%). However, a lot of small and bigger issues like the limited runtime prevent a better score. Another device with 82% is the Acer Spin 5 SP515-51GN (here in review). The 15-inch system is still interesting for gamers thanks to the i7-8550U and the GTX 1050. There are only two other big convertibles with this gaming power: Lenovo Yoga 720-15IKB-80X7 (about 1600 Euros) and the Microsoft Surface Book 2 (about 2000 Euros).

360 degrees Ryzen (Raven Ridge): Envy x360 15m-bq121dx
360 degrees Ryzen (Raven Ridge): Envy x360 15m-bq121dx

HP's Envy x360 15m-bq121dx did not get a good rating (77%), but it is still a very interesting device thanks to the AMD Ryzen 5 2500U (Zen) in combination with the Radeon RX Vega 8. Our author called it "A very rough gem", which hints at the long list of cons. The CPU performance of the Ryzen 5 2500U (Zen) is comparable to the i5-8250U/i7-8550U and cheaper compared to the Intel chips. 

AMD's new Raven Ridge platform is a commendable achievement, but it's too bad that it suffers from the same poor software and driver issues that have been plaguing the chipmaker for years. We cannot recommend this HDD-based AMD HP system at least until the GPU glitches have been patched.

Sprightly yet outmoded: Microsoft Surface Pro 2017
Sprightly yet outmoded: Microsoft Surface Pro 2017

Microsoft refreshes its Surface Pro family (see review), omits the model number 5 and offers a 2017 convertible with Kaby Lake, but it does not bring the desired improvements in connectivity.

It also lacks USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3, which would have made the Surface Pro much more future-proof.

Performance without a disturbing fan is not promised by a Kaby Lake Y processor here, but this is ensured by a genuine 15-Watt SoC, which can be found in every laptop. The high performance is actually available but only for the first few minutes. Afterwards, the performance falls by about 33%. Power users will not like this.

On the plus side, it has decent cameras that support Windows Hello, a very good microphone, and a bright display with decent sRGB coverage.

The chassis was only minimally changed. The corners got rounder, and the premium case has a high build quality.

The most noticeable difference between the old Surface Pro 4 and the new Surface Pro 2017 is the latter’s improved battery life: more than 12 hours instead of 7 hours in our Wi-Fi test. No other contestant with a 15-Watt SoC was able to get even close.

The high price of 1450 Euros (~$1662) for the test configuration with i5 might keep you from buying it, since it does not even include a keyboard, pen or USB dock. We recommend considering one of three competitors: the Dell Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1, the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB (1145 Euros, ~$1312, 85%), and the Asus Transformer 3 Pro T303UA (1100 Euros, ~$1261, 86%). They might have more disadvantages, slightly shorter battery runtimes or a fan, but they are cheaper, have more interfaces (some of them even include Thunderbolt 3) and they offer consistent performance.

Certainly, we have also reviewed the variants with Core m3 and Core i7. In contrast to the Surface Pro 4, the Core m model (see review) is not leading the top list. Formerly, it got a higher rating due to significantly longer battery runtimes. Now, the Surface Pro with Core m3 lasts one hour shorter than the i5 variant. This is not a big problem, since the Wi-Fi battery life is still 11:22 hours.

Microsoft's Surface Pro 2017 entry-level configuration primarily attracts attention with its appealing price design.

While the Core m3 model features a solid system performance, thermal throttling (20 %) has a noticeable impact. The Core i7 does not throttle that heavily. We observed a performance loss of 17 % under permanent load (Cinebench Multi Loop). Therewith, the i7 model delivers a relatively stable performance when compared to the Core i5 (-33 %) model. The battery life of 12:24 hours is appealing.

Alternatives to the Surface Pro 2017 are Dell's Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1 (1275 Euros, 88 %, in our top list), Lenovo's IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB 1 (1145 Euro, 85 %) and the Samsung Galaxy Book 12 (1500 Euro, 88 %).

New top model: EliteBook x360 1030 G2
New top model: EliteBook x360 1030 G2

The new top model from HP has real stamina. The EliteBook x360 1030 G2 (see review) lasts 10:30 hours on-the-move; not in the idle mode but in the realistic Wi-Fi test. The idle battery life is 23 hours.

HP has created a very attractive device. The EliteBook x360 1030 G2 is versatile and impresses with its very long battery life.

This is combined with a flawless build quality, very good input devices, and good system performance without CPU throttling. The elegantly designed device leaves no wishes unfulfilled. You will not even long for better connectivity, since USB Type-C (with Thunderbolt 3) and an LTE module are on board.

As the notebook was created mainly with the business sector in mind, it includes a lot of security features - which means that the price is quite high, even with the most basic equipment.

We tried hard to find points of criticism and found one in the not ideal brightness of the display. While the EliteBook x360 1030 G2 can be opened for maintenance, you can only replace the storage device and the WWAN module.

But apart from these few points of criticism, the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 definitely convinced us during the tests. Of course, the elegant, slim design played a role in giving us such a positive impression.

The EliteBook x360 1030 G2 is suitable for well-heeled buyers, who can spend 1600 to 2000 Euros ($1834 to ~$2292). Compared to the ThinkPad X1 Yoga (up to 2500 Euros/~$2865), Dell Latitude 12 5285, and Toshiba X20w the price is not even extraordinarily high. Whether the EliteBook x360 1030 G2 is really the best high-end convertible for you depends on many factors. The mentioned competitors only have marginally lower ratings.

Those who do not want to spend that much money can also get a slim, yet not that powerful model in the Dell XPS 13-9365. We recommend the ThinkPad Yoga 370 (1400 Euros/~$1604) to price-conscious customers.

Premium convertible with OLED: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017
Premium convertible with OLED: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 (see review) is an extraordinary 14-inch convertible. The manufacturer not only links this to the price of above 3000 Euros (~$3439), the pro list is very long. A Core i7-7600U, which can use its full potential, a 1024 GB SSD and 16 GB of RAM are encased in a robust case with high-end input devices.

If money is no object and only a "convertible extraordinaire" will do - well, then the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017 is without a doubt the logical choice.

The OLED display features very good color coverage and a high contrast. Unfortunately, brightness does not belong to its strengths. Hence, it is only recommendable for outdoor use to some extent. In addition, Lenovo's Active Pen and an LTE modem are included.

The OLED panel is also impressive with vivid colors, although the average brightness is not quite as high as we'd hoped for.

The strongest competitor is immediately above it: HP's EliteBook x360 1030 G2 does not cost that much and delivers a battery life of 10:30 hours (instead of 6 hours @X1 Yoga), and a Thunderbolt 3. It is pleasingly quiet, maintainable and also includes an Active Pen. Cons of the HP are its weaker cooling system. Therefore, it delivers lower performance under load. In terms of performance the throttle-free Toshiba Portégé X20W is on par with the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2017.

We  also had the cheaper variant with IPS FHD display and Core i5 7200U in our lab (see review). This model even achieves a slightly higher rating (+40 % battery life) and would rank second in this top list. However, it is not yet sold in Germany. Hence we left the top list as it is.

In fact, apart from the lack of OLED and WQHD resolution (this one’s Full HD), slightly less capable CPU, and slower SSD, these are practically the same machine.

Business Elite: HP Elite x2 1012 G2
Business Elite: HP Elite x2 1012 G2

Shipped with keyboard dock and active pen, because nobody wants to use a Windows tablet without these accessories. The first version Elite x2 1012 was still available without the (optional), but the new model is only shipped in this package.

The Elite x2 1012 G2-1LV76EA (here in review) can secure a spot in the front of our ranking, because it does not only perform like a laptop. Okay, there is some throttling during sustained workloads, but ~10% are not really significant when the Surface Pro 2017 (i5) drops by 33% in the same test. 

HP's Elite x2 1012 G2 convinces with an immaculate build and very good screen. Useful accessories, such as the keyboard dock and Active Pen, extend its possible applications and encourage creativity.

We also like the fast M.2 SSD, sufficient runtimes of around six hours, as well as the bright IPS screen with wide color gamut. The more expensive i7 does not make much sense since the cooling system does not have a lot of headroom, so the additional performance cannot be utilized.

If you are looking for a similarly powerful – but less expensive – device, you should have a look at the Samsung Galaxy Book 12 SM-W728 (5th), which is equipped with the same Core i5-7200U that throttles less than 10%. Even more affordable and without a fan: The Acer Switch 5 SW512 (84%, here in review). It convinces with good application performance, and there is not much throttling under sustained workloads. The short runtime (6 hours WLAN), display weaknesses, and the high temperatures are no highlights.

Surface competitor with AMOLED: Samsung Galaxy Book 12
Surface competitor with AMOLED: Samsung Galaxy Book 12

Samsung's Galaxy Book 12 SM-W728 (see review) achieved one of the top places with ease, but it cannot hold a candle to the Surface Pro 2017 (i5) due to its shorter battery life (6:50 vs. 12:20 hours in the Wi-Fi test). Nevertheless, the 12-inch tablet features impressive details: The Galaxy Book 12 performs very well for an ultra-mobile device due to perfect build quality, versatile keyboard case, good cameras with 13 and 5 MP, fast Wi-Fi and LTE.

Apart from the meagre port selection, Samsung really has managed to combine the best of both worlds in one device.

The AMOLED display has an enormous contrast. It actually turns black pixels off. Moreover, the screen is very bright. The color space could be better however.

The fact that Samsung has chosen a quiet cooling system and acceptable case temperatures over full performance under continuous load should not be noticeable as long as the device is used for its intended purpose - as an office device.

S-Pen and keyboard are included. However, this is to be expected in view of the high price of 1500 Euros. In terms of performance, the Surface Pro 2017 and Galaxy Book 12 are similar. Both significantly throttle the SoC under permanent load. If you are a power user and want a stabler performance, the detachables Dell Latitude 12 5285 (1275 Euros, 88 %) or the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB (1145 Euros, 85 %) are the better choice. You might also like the Acer Switch 5 (not in the top list) with its Liquid-Loop cooling without fan.

Incredibly bright: Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1
Incredibly bright: Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1

Dell's Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1 (see review) proves to be a Surface clone with no essential differences in look and size. Dell has managed to implement all the strengths of the Surface Pro 4 and combined them with the latest platform.

The 2-in-1 combines good ergonomics, decent speed and plenty of endurance into a sleek, appealing package.

Good performance is combined with quiet system noise. Keyboard dock and stylus are included as standard features. Unlike the Microsoft tablet, repairing and upgrading is possible. This is true for the PCIe NVMe SSD, the Wi-Fi module, and the fan. Two USB Type-C ports also belong to an up-to-date system.

The Latitude's standout feature is without a doubt its display, which is incredibly bright at an average luminance of over 520 nits.

The Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1 is the uncompromising business competitor to the Surface Pro 2017. It outperforms the tablet from Microsoft in connectivity. With a price tag of about 1500 Euros (~$1720), it is not cheaper. Furthermore, it also only features Full HD resolution, which does not need to be a disadvantage. If you like the tablet and keyboard concept, you should also consider the Acer Switch 5 (fanless 7500U, 512 GB), which is available from 1300 Euros.

Performance lightweight: Toshiba Portege X20W-D-10R
Performance lightweight: Toshiba Portege X20W-D-10R
Editor's Choice Award in March 2017: Toshiba Portege X20W
Editor's Choice Award in March 2017: Toshiba Portege X20W

Toshiba's 360-degree system is a rival for the Surface Pro 4 and actually manages to beat the former top dog. A quick look at the ranking does not look like a win for the Toshiba Portege X20W-D-10R (here in review), but the comparable Core i5 version of the Surface Pro 4 scored only 86% (shorter runtime than on the m3-SKU). 

The promise of real laptop power with good Turbo utilization in the smallest convertible size is kept. 

We are impressed by the performance: The processor can use its Turbo all the time and does not get too loud or too hot. It is still able to last a long 12 hours in the Wi-Fi test. 

The emissions that are hardly worth mentioning follows this: The small fan is virtually inaudible.

Then there is a sophisticated chassis, which is extremely light and still offers some maintenance options. The high price (2300 Euros/~$2637) already suggests that the Toshiba Portege X20W is targeted at managers and not students. The former get almost all the tools in terms of security: TPM, fingerprint, IR camera for Windows Hello, Toshiba BIOS, and Intel Active Management. You also get an AES Stylus Pen.

A real rarity is the anti-reflective touch display. We can only find drawbacks in terms of the keyboard (illuminated), because the feedback is not firm enough for our taste. The webcam is also poor.

The high price will probably drive private customers towards the fanless Aspire Switch Alpha 12 (here in review), which does not create any noise and provides high performance as well. The Switch Alpha, however, has shorter battery runtimes and is much heavier. Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 Core i5 has a quieter fan. The IdeaPad Miix 720-12IKB (here in review), which just missed the ranking, throttles and it is too loud, but the keyboard provides more feedback (also illuminated), which does not have to hide behind the Surface Pro 4.

Business customers should consider buying the leading HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2: The 13-inch device is cheaper, but it is 300 g (~10.6 oz) heavier. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga features the same weight of 1.3 kg (~2.8 lb), but it has a higher resolution and an OLED display (if relevant). However, it delivers a battery life of only 5 hours and still costs at least 3000 Euros.

Almost without competition: Microsoft Surface Book 2
Almost without competition: Microsoft Surface Book 2

The Surface Book 2 with the GeForce GTX 1050 and the brand-new Kaby Lake quad-core CPU is Microsoft's latest convertible for power users. 

The 13.5-inch convertible is a really good device in some respects, but we are sometimes wondering why the manufacturer ignores known issues or waives modern standards. 

We are talking about the missing Thunderbolt 3 port. This was already an issue for the previous Surface Book with Performance Base (here in review). In return, we finally get rid of the old GeForce GTX 965M and getd decent gaming performance with the GTX 1050. Unfortunately, the Surface Book 2 can be really loud and the battery discharges under high workloads. 

The Surface Book 2 13.5" is once again almost unrivaled thanks to the good performance. However, there are some compromises (no Thunderbolt 3!), which are hard to swallow considering the high price.

The advantage of the Surface Book 2 is the mobility in combination with the tablet-only operation. Undock and you can just take it to your meeting with the Surface Pen. But wait, Microsoft does not include the stylus anymore – difficult to understand at this price.

The higher-end SKUs only pay off when you really need the performance of the GTX 1050 for applications or games, but most users will be happy with the less expensive iGPU model. There are no real alternatives, because there are no other tablets with attachable GPU docks. But: Acer announced an extension for the Switch 5 at the IFA 2017 – the Switch 7 Black Edition, a 2-in-1 system with keyboard dock, which includes a GeForce MX150. This could be a low-end alternative.

There are some 15-inch 360-degree convertibles like the Acer Spin 5 (here in review), but it is not in the Top 10. It is equipped with the same GTX 1050 GPU and a quad-core i7-8550U, but retail for just 1349 Euros. Less powerful convertibles with discreet GPUs are the Lenovo Yoga 710-14ISK (GeForce 940MX) or HP Spectre x360 15-bl002x (GeForce 940MX), but they are not as versatile as the Surface Book 2.

Editor's Choice Award October 2017: ZenBook Flip S UX370UA

The Asus ZenBook Flip S UX370 (here in review) is an attractive 13-inch system with decent performance figures. The Core i5-7200U throttles a bit in the Cinebench R15 loop, but 14% is significantly less compared to the 33% of the Surface Pro 2017 (i5).

The Asus ZenBook Flip S UX 370UA has a perfect build and is a good traveling companion due to its light weight. Prolific writers will be happy to hear about the good keyboard.

Besides a nice design and fast WLAN, buyers also get low noise emissions (despite the fan) as well as good and high-contrast display. The box includes an Asus Sleeve and an Active Pen. The compelling package gets our Editor's Choice Award in October 2017.

The ZenBook Flip S UX370 seems to be a real bargain in this group of 360-degree convertibles. Don't forget Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 370 (here in review) and the Asus ZenBook Flip UX360UAK (here in review); they also got ratings of 86/87% and had to leave our ranking. Both devices are inexpensive 13-inch systems with FHD panel and 15 W SoC for 1100-1400 Euros.

XPS 13 goes convertible: XPS 13 9365 2-in-1
XPS 13 goes convertible: XPS 13 9365 2-in-1

Dell also seeks to produce convertibles which can keep up with the Surface Pro 4. A 360-degrees solution with Core m (new name: Core i7-7Y75) is supposed to be the top seller. In the XPS 13-9365 (see review), Dell does not use a powerful SoC. This is not necessarily a bad idea, since Microsoft was unrivalled leading the top list with the Surface Pro 4 with Core m3 (88%) for over one year.

Users who want to do more than just web-browsing, video-streaming, and word-processing may still prefer an Ultrabook with a U-class processor. Otherwise, this is easily one of our favorite 2-in-1s simply because of its small size and subsequent practicality in tablet mode.

Pros are many ports in a compact case with Infinity Edge display, including two USB Type-C ports, a MicroSD-card reader, and Thunderbolt 3. The replaceable M.2-2280 NVMe SSD is a small technical ingenuity, since it allows replacing it with a cheaper, bigger model in the future. The battery runtime of 11:30 hours and the crisp IPS touchscreen are also appealing. Optionally, Dell offers QHD.

Users [...] will have one of the best 2-in-1 experiences from a 13-inch notebook that is even more compact and lighter than the latest from Lenovo or HP.

With a price tag of about 1399 Euros (~$1604), the Dell XPS 13 9365 2-in-1 is not cheap; at least not at the first glance. The most expensive configuration costs 1899 Euros (~$2177; 512 GB, i7, QHD).

On the other hand, other high-end 2-in-1 devices also easily reach 2000 Euros (~$2293), as the test models of the Lenovo Yoga 910-13 or the ThinkPad X1 Yoga show. These two are direct competitors. Those who want a good keyboard and have a smaller budget should consider the ThinkPad Yoga 370 (8th place), which is priced at 1300 Euros (~$1490).
