If you are looking for versatility the Click 2 isn’t a bad choice if you want a hybrid device. It has a great screen for the money and its performance was adequate enough to perform most tasks. If tablet functionality isn’t important to you, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 has better performance and marginally better battery life.

The latest Toshiba hybrid is a visual and ergonomic improvement over the last generation, which means it’s easier to use, but it remains thicker and heavier than the competition. Its good screen and build quality are hampered by its low-end components, poor keyboard and mediocre battery life. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 11 has more going for it – including a better price.
