Toshiba dynaPad
Toshiba dynaPadToshiba is pitching its dynaPad Windows 10 convertible laptop as a ‘reinvention’ of pen and paper. In tablet mode, it measures 6.9mm thick, and weighs 569g – making it thinnest and lightest in its class. It comes with a WACOM Active Electro-Static (AES) stylus and a suite of pre-installed original apps enable users to easily collect, organise and share notes, images and files.
Housed in a smart Satin Gold carbon body, the dynaPad offers a strong chassis four times the stiffness of a conventional structure. When used in a clamshell mobile PC mode, connected by magnets, users can experience a comfortable keyboard with a 19mm pitch and 1.5mm stroke for easier typing. When not in use, the tablet and keyboard are held together by magnets for easy storage and protection of the display while the WACOM AES pen clips on to the side of the tablet.
The dynaPad features a WUXGA+ (1920×1280) display with an anti-reflection coating that is also resistant to fingerprints, so you won’t have to wipe it clean after every use.

HP Spectre 13 X360
 HP Spectre 13 X360HP’s Spectre 13 X360 convertible shifts uses a sixth-generation Core i7-6500U Skylake chip with Intel HD 520 graphics. On top of a brushed aluminium chassis from the previous x360 HP has added an Ash Silver option with copper highlights along the edges.
In the smallest of little changes, HP says it changed the way the keyboard lights up. On the original model the key that turned the backlighting on or off was always lit, presumably to let you find it in the dark. But apparently enough customers complained about it always being on that the company now allows users to turn it off. HP will also allow older Spectre X360 units to do the same after a UEFI update.
The price of the base Spectre 13 X360 with 4Gb of RAM, 128Gb M.2 SSD and the Core i5 Skylake chip should be $899. Other options include 256Gb and 512Gb M.2 SSDs. All models feature touch and a choice of 13″ 1920×1080 resolution screen or a 2560×1440 panel.
Price: From $799
