Chart: Best Windows 2 In 1 Laptops / Tablets Under $750 In Australia

Chart: Looking for a new 2 in 1 laptop / tablet running Windows? Get work done by day and kick back with a touchscreen tablet by night. Here are the best entry-level options in Australia as of March 11, 2015.

The focus here is on machines under $750 bucks. We'll look at higher-end designs in a future chart.

Over 15 models were considered from brands like Asus, HP, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, Dell and MSI. It's quite a tight field -- and looking forward, the new Asus Transformer Book T200TA and Lenovo Yoga 11e (Windows edition) will likely score well once reviewers, Giz included, take those 11.6-inch 2 in 1s for a spin.

The best deal for also comes down to the price and extra specs you're able to score. Also consider which features matter most to you: how important is screen resolution? What type of 2 in 1 suits your needs most? You can find laptops with a detachable keyboard (turning the screen into a tablet), some of which have an extra internal battery to boost power. You can also find sliders: 2 in 1s that have a keyboard hidden away inside their chassis. And, of course, there are designs that flip and twist, some with 360-degree folding hinges.
