There are times when you need the computing power of a desk top or laptop computer. This would be for typing power such as a word document, project and schoolwork where a keyboard is necessary to get the job done quickly. Other times you want something that can travel easily and be accessible at a moment’s notice. Tablets and netbooks fall into this category as they are quick, travel easy, and are compact. When you combine the two of them together you get a convertible laptop that does both.
