I’ll be the first to admit, that when convertible laptops came out I was skeptical. I cringed every time a student came into my classroom with a touch screen – my habit of touching my computer screen would throw off everything or every time I went to clean off cat hair. However, earlier this year I had to get a new laptop and the only one with the specs I needed was a convertible laptop and I got everything I needed and more inside that bundle.
Looking for a new laptop? Right now Best Buy has a great deal where you can save $100 on HP Envy Laptops! They’re convertible laptops that flip to a tablet and are great for presentations, or playing games with on the go. While it took a bit of convincing for me to make the change from a traditional laptop there are so many more perks with having a 360 laptop that you will absolutely love.
Flexibility – Literally and Figuratively
The HP Envy Laptops have screens that flip completely around and converts quickly into a tablet. The hinge is smooth and makes it easy to flip, and you can even lay your computer flat on the table (while open). But what does this actually do? When you flip the screen to the back, it goes into tablet mode. That not only takes full advantage of the touch screen of the laptop, but also allows you to use it in tablet mode. Access your apps, games, movies and more. Don’t worry about your software not working, most provide tablet versions where you can use the touch function throughout the program.
Screens You Can Write On
All of the HP Envy 360 laptops come with Windows Ink – In laptop or tablet mode you can use the stylus to write and take notes. Correct your papers, draw new creations or add to your artwork. Windows Ink allows you to use different pressure and sensitivity while working and adding to your creations.
Touch Screen Means More Function
Want a beautiful screen and not sacrifice the touch screen function? The HP Envy has you covered with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The touch screen takes advantage of wide viewing angles and is back-lit providing a beautiful clarity for your work. Reduce eye fatigue with this ultra clear screen and still use every one of your favorite apps as you do it. This can also help with coding-tests.
Power Packed Inside
One of my biggest fears when switching to a convertible laptop was it would be under powered. Would it be able able to handle all the software I needed, being a laptop and a tablet at the same time? Thankfully they have that all figured out! The HP Envy has a 8 GB RAM set up that allows you to smoothly run your games and photo- and video-editing applications, as well as multiple programs and browser tabs all at once.
It’s More Bang for Your Buck!
Probably one of the best things for me was the convertible laptop replaces my need for a tablet. I have everything all in one device. It’s sturdy so I don’t worry about it not being able to handle the switch between laptop and tablet. But I can even put the computer in “tent” mode and stand it on to watch movies on easily. Why have more than one device when one can handle it all? It’s one price for so much more functionality.
