This machine follows the aesthetics and design set by its two generations of the Ativ Book 9 before it dating back to 2014. This laptop fully converts into a tablet simply by folding back the screen. However when it’s sitting in the regular laptop position, chances are that you would never have guessed that it converts that way because of its subtle designing. Its ability to easily convert from table to laptop or even tent mode is possible due to the 360-degree rotating dual-hinge system.

The 13.3-inch convertible is also perfectly usable as a normal laptop. It has a full-sized backlit comfortable keyboard that spans the width of the machine and the trackpad is on normal sizing and covers about a one-third of the width of the device. Some people are sensitive to the key travel and say that it tends to feel a bit mushy given the fact that the keys have about a 2mm travel span. For some people it takes a little bit of getting used to.
