5 Best 2-in-1 Computers for Seniors

By    |   Wednesday, 11 Oct 2017 12:11 PM

With the price of 2-in-1 computers dropping steadily, seniors no longer need to decide between a laptop and a tablet — you can have both in one device at a reasonable cost.

As Laptop Mag reports, these hybrids are no longer new technology and now that they’re out of their teething stages, they offer heaps of convenience.

2-in-1 computers offer the flexibility of a tablet with all the power of a traditional computer, which means you’ll have fewer gadgets to worry about and you’ll save money.

Here’s a look at five of the best 2-in-1 computers for seniors:

1. ASUS Chromebook FlipMakeUseOf reckons that Chromebooks are the best possible computing options for seniors.

That’s because they’re simple to use. They come with Google’s Office suite, which offers all the same functionality as the well-known Microsoft Office. The devices update themselves and they’re virtually immune to viruses.

While there are quite a few Chromebook options on the market, Laptop Mag has chosen the Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA as the best Chromebook 2-in-1 released this year.

As the publication writes in its review: "It’s lightweight, fast, has an almost 9-hour battery life and looks snazzy too, thanks to its aluminum design."

Another great, slightly cheaper Chromebook option is the Asus Chromebook Flip C213SA. Its screen is an inch smaller than the C302CA, but it also costs $150 less and, according to Asus, it’s virtually indestructible. 

2. Microsoft Surface Pro — While the latest Microsoft Surface Pro looks much like the older versions, the company has added tons of power to an already popular device.

Paste Magazine reports that this Core i7 model sports better graphics and a longer battery life.

PC Mag gave it four out of five stars, highlighting its powerful processor and higher-than-full-HD screen resolution as some of its best features.

Laptop Mag calls it a great choice for creatives.

3. Lenovo Yoga 910 — Lenovo’s Yogas were some of the first 2-in-1 computers and the new Yoga 910 will be hitting shelves in October.

While this brand new model is slightly pricey, it offers a powerful processor, 16GB of RAM, and 4K (ultra HD) displays — all in a machine that weighs only three pounds.

According to PC Mag, it’s also got one of the most stable hinges on the market. They reckon the price is worth it considering the years of use you’ll get.

4. Dell Inspiron 13 7000 (2017)According to Laptop Mag, the newest Dell Inspiron 13 7000 is the best value for money 2-in-1 computer available at the moment.

Dell is known for its value when it comes to laptops, and the company has brought this quality to its convertibles too.

The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 is sleek and sturdy with a comfortable keyboard and decent power.

Both Laptop Mag and PC Mag warn that it doesn’t have the greatest battery life, but PC Mag says its affordability makes up for it.

5. HP Spectre x360 — In the looks department, Paste Magazine says HP’s Spectre range has always been a great alternative to the Microsoft Surface Pro.

Laptop Mag chose the new HP Spectre x360 as the best overall 2-in-1 computer for 2017, reporting that it combines the best features of laptops and tablets while leaving out the negatives.

It’s fast and powerful with a responsive keyboard, a high-resolution display, and a wide touchpad.

What’s more, it’s got a 10-hour battery life and with prices starting at $1,050, it’s an affordable mid-range option.
