For many people, this is the ultimate 2 in 1 hybrid laptop that knocks it out of the pack of them. Many would argue that it should be in the number one spots as it stays closer to its hybrid meaning by having a detachable screen, unlike the Hp Spectre that has a 360 degrees flip screen. The only reason why the Hp Spectre is on the throne is because it has a more powerful CPU. However, the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is a beast to be reckoned with. Depending on how you like to play ball, this 2 in 1 laptop has all you need to be versatile with your device. If you like to work on the go, then its detachable screen that can function as a powerful tablet gives you all the advantage you might need.
