For a more premium options, there’s HP Spectre XT TouchSmart. Priced at $1399, the 15.6 laptop is a high end laptop, in every way possible. It comes with i7 processor, with big 1920×1080 resolution screen and other high end specs like thunderbolt port, USB 3.0 and 2.0, and classy metal body.

If you are one of those eccentric-super-rich geeks, you can opt for Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13. The $999 laptop comes with some serious bending capability. Another laptop with unique display is the Dell XPS 12 that comes with high end specs and price. For $1199 you can ‘flip’ your display inside the hinge. Now for a true convertible laptop, Hewlett-Packard offers an $849 laptop named HP Envy X2 that can convert into a tablet. But the specs aren’t that impressive, though.
So which one will you choose? I am really interested with Envy X2 concept, but I think at the end of the day I would choose the XT Touchsmart.
