Best Overall 2-in-1 Laptop: Asus Zenbook Flip UX360

In today’s laptop landscape, it is impossible to create a list of the best laptops of the year without inevitably listing a convertible laptop. Long gone are the days when these 2-in-1 machines were perceived as  low-power gimmicks. Now, there is a substantial demand and an increase in use capabilities for these machines,  and the Asus Zenbook Flip UX360 delivers on many  fronts.

Compared to their performance, their price points are absolutely affordable. We’ve seen them used in industries across the board like dental offices, medical facilities, executive meetings and daily use. The 8GB DDR3L RAM and 13.3 inch, 1920×1080 screen propels this device past its predecessors and into the top class. Combine that with 512 GB SSD storage and it quickly becomes evident why this machine has stood out in the current 2-in-1 market.
