PC Notebooks and Laptops

Varying from traditional laptops to hybrid touchscreen tablets, PCs have evolved dramatically to better suit users for multiple purposes. Whether you need your laptop for home use or utilising it for professional or recreational reasons, PC laptops cover a wide breadth of applications.

The newer 2-in-1 touchscreen tablet/laptop technology allows for users to easily switch between the best of two devices depending on their needs. Using a detachable keyboard, the laptop can be turned into a tablet that utilises a touchscreen for portability and fast multitasking without the added bulk.

The HP x2 210 G2 features a detachable keyboard that has multi-touch gestures on its trackpad. Connectivity is not lost while using the laptop in its tablet form as all ports are not in the keyboard as with conventional laptops. The tablet has 2 USB ports, a micro HDMI port, a headphone jack and a pogo pin docking connector. An additional micro SD port can be found in the detachable keyboard.

The Acer Chromebook R 11 CB5-132T also utilises a touchscreen, but the keyboard does not detach. Instead, it is possible to flip the screen all the way around to turn the laptop into a tablet. The keyboard can instead be used as a stand for better control and is lightweight to make it easy to carry when on the go. The touchscreen recognises gestures to make navigation easy and has a battery life of up to 9.5 hours.

Accessories such as a stylus can be bought for 2-in-1 laptops, providing a completely new way to interact with the device. It is perfect for users that work with graphic design and require specific applications. When using laptops in their conventional form, wireless mice can be purchased to prevent users from being confined to working in a small space and speakers can be bought to further expand your workspace.
