[Review] HP Spectre X360 13-4193NR All you need and More

Sometimes finding the perfect laptop can be a hard task and sometimes it can be quite easy. In the case of the HP Spectre X360 13-4193NR it's a pretty easy task since this is hands down one of the best convertibles we've seen to date both in terms of general specs as well as in the price/specs balance. Overall, this is an excellent convertible that stands out in a crowd where many convertibles still opt for hard drive instead of SSD storage and 15 inch displays instead of 13 inch displays.

[Review] Dell i3168-0027RED Affordable: Yes Bad: No

It seems as though there are two kinds of convertibles: the ones that have more in common with a tablet and the ones that have more in common with a laptop. It's hard to find a middle ground in this segment even though finding the middle ground is kind of the point to the whole convertible laptop thing. Today we're going to take on a convertible that does its best to meet us with the best of both worlds. Specifically we're going to review the Dell i3168-0027RED.

This affordable convertible packs a nice 11 inch display, eMMC storage and the processor we've come to expect on entry level laptops. Without further ado, let's get down to business!

Pros and cons:
Pros: Celeron N3060 CPU, eMMC storage, lightweight original design, 3 USB ports, decent battery life, extremely competitive price.
Cons: 2GB of RAM limit multitasking capabilities.

[Review] Dell Inspiron i3169-0013GRY Performance and Personality rolled into one

We've covered in depth Dell's lower end convertibles which have more in common with a high end tablet than they do with a mid range laptop. However, now it's time to look at  more high end models such as the Dell Inspiron i3169-0013GRY.

This new convertible doesn't qualify as a high end convertible neither is specs nor in price, however it does sit comfortably in the segment of mid range laptops that also happen to be convertibles. To this point we've got a Core M3 processor, 4GB of RAM, ample storage as well as the ever present flip screen with touch capabilities. Without further delay, let's get on with our review of the Dell Inspiron i3169-0013GRY.
Pros: Core M3 CPU, 500GB of storage, 4GB of RAM (maximum 8GB), 3 USB ports + HDMI port, lightweight design.

[Review] Asus R554LA-RH31T(WX) a MacBook lookalike convertible

Though it's true that convertibles mostly thrive in smaller form factors that doesn't stop manufacturers from launching convertible laptops with bigger form factors. Such is the case of Asus, a company that hasn't specialized on convertibles as much as Dell or HP have, yet has experience even before they arrived in the scene thanks to its transformer lineup.

Today we're going to share with you guys our review of the Asus R554LA-RH31T(WX), an interesting convertible that packs a Core i3 CPU, 500GB of storage and actually opts to include a DVD drive, a true rarity within this for factor. Without further delay, let's get on with it!

[Review] Dell Inspiron i3168-0029GRY Striking a balance between a high end tablet and a low end laptop

Convertibles are here to stay, at least that's what HP and Dell would tell you based on their recent launches. Both companies have invested an awful lot in this new segment which seems to be gaining a lot of traction, especially amongst those consumers who either can't afford to buy a tablet and a laptop as well as those who simply don't see the point in buying both products.

It's with this in mind that Dell has introduced a new convertible that takes the best of both worlds-along with an accessible price tag- , the one we're gonna review today. Specifically we're gonna take on the review of the Dell Inspiron i3168-0029GRY, a nice 11 inch convertible that stands out thanks to its latest generation Celeron CPU, eMMC storage unit and quite a bit more features we'll cover in depth.

[Review] Asus Q304UA-BBI5T10 now that's what we're talking about!

Cons: display isn’t IPS, an SSD would’ve been better
