  • The Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) blends the best elements from other designs into a single Chrome-based laptop with a slick, convertible form factor, fast performance, all-day battery life, and an affordable price.


  • The $249 Asus Chromebook Flip offers a flexible design, a vibrant touch screen and long battery life, making it a very good laptop-tablet combo.


  • The Chromebook Flip is notable for being one of the lightest Chrome OS laptops on the market. Its versatile and convertible design, solid build quality and affordable price also help set it apart from the pack. The smaller-than-average keyboard will be a turnoff for some, but ultimately, the positives outweigh the negatives.


  • Though it boasts plenty of ports and a physical keyboard, the SlateBooks x2's offerings don't quite match its $480 price.


  • HP makes a strong attempt at a proper convertible with the SlateBook x2, a screaming-fast, Tegra 4-powered Android tablet, but it's not without flaws.


  • Imagine an Envy x2 at half the price running Android instead of Windows and that is essentially the SlateBook x2 in a nutshell. This 10.1-inch detachable has more in common with the Envy x2 than the Split x2 - and that should be taken as a compliment. These HP models may not look as sleek as the Asus Infinity models, but the FHD IPS display, solid workmanship, versatility and outdoor usability are all indubitably better than the larger and more expensive Split x2.


  • Fully rugged devices obviously occupy a niche in the market, intended for those who face potentially hostile working environments. Emergency and military services, field workers, those into extreme sports and the like are obvious markets, but this kind of device is also great for people who want to be able to work in harsh weather conditions or simply be sure that, no matter how clumsy they are with their laptop, it (and its data) will remain intact.

    The Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 certainly doesn't disappoint in this regard.
