The Z20t is an excellent hybrid laptop that more than adequately fills both the tablet and laptop roles. It plays better as a laptop than many of the traditional models I’ve seen recently, and its battery life is indisputable. Given the C2112’s price, though, I’m guessing this is the one the boss will get, unless you work for a generous company.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
