Best 2-in-1 Laptops of 2018

By Reviewed Staff

If the allure of a tablet/laptop hybrid is too much to resist, we can't blame you. The advent of hybrid devices running Windows 10 means there are a ton of new computers that double up on functionality. Our favorite right now is the Huawei Matebook X Pro (available at Microsoft for $1,499.99).

Instead of carrying two devices, these laptops give you the option to use a touchscreen to kick back and read your favorite websites, or watch Netflix. When you need to get work done, you're only a flip, a snap, or a dock away from opening up Microsoft Office or even heavy-duty apps like Photoshop.

To judge these 2-in-1 laptops, we put them through a battery of tests in our state-of-the-art labs to gauge performance, screen quality, and other factors like keyboard and trackpad feel. We've used every one of these models in real life and have full reviews for you to read, so you can best decide which one will be the pick for you.

Huawei Matebook X Pro (Intel i7, 16GB RAM)

Best Overall

With its snappy performance, high-res display, and long battery life, Huawei's MateBook X Pro has a lot going for it. While we love the oversized trackpad and wide selection of ports, we still had a few nitpicks. The webcam is in a strange place, and the shell is a fingerprint magnet. That said, if you're looking for a swanky ultraportable that won't burn a hole in your wallet, you can't get much better than this. Read full review.

HP Spectre x360 Convertible (15-inch, 2017)

HP Spectre x360 Convertible (15-inch, 2017)

The HP Spectre x360 (15-inch, late 2017) can really walk the walk. With its 8th Gen Intel CPU and 16GB of RAM, this 2-in-1 packs some serious power. While we love the connectivity options, 4K display, and long battery life, the starting price is steep and it's bulky in tablet mode. Drawbacks aside, if you're a photo editor with a flexible budget, this convertible laptop is designed just for you. Read full review.

This big HP 2-in-1 gives users a big canvas on which to do work and express themselves. The Spectre X360 uses high-quality materials and has an alluring look. The 4K screen, speedy i7, and great keyboard compliment the beautiful metal build. While the trackpad is a little less great than competing laptops, there's no other 15-inch premium laptop that's quite as nice for as little money as the Spectre X360. Read full review.

Lenovo Yoga 920

From the inside out, the Lenovo Yoga 920 is a work of art. Between the superb battery life and signature wristband hinge, not only does it look great, it performs well too. While there's a lot we love, like the included stylus and bronze color scheme, the pen holder blocks the only 3.0 port and the starting price can be high. Drawbacks aside, if you're willing to spend extra, it's absolutely worth the price. Read full review.

Dell XPS 13 Touch 9370 (2018)

With its attractive color scheme and barely-there bezels, the Dell XPS 13 (2018) has a lot to offer. But while we love the comfortable keyboard and responsive trackpad, it's not without its flaws. The webcam looks up your nose and there's no USB-A ports. Plus, the fans are loud under heavy workloads. Despite these quirks, we still think it's the one of the best ultraportable you can buy.
