Chart: Looking for a new 2 in 1 laptop / tablet running Windows 8.1? Get work done by day and kick back with a touchscreen tablet by night. Here are the best premium machines in Australia as of June 2, 2015.

The focus here is on convertibles over $750 bucks. Over 20 models were considered from brands like Lenovo, Asus, HP, Dell, Acer, Toshiba and more.

For the moment, we're going to leave Windows tablets with Surface-style fabric keyboard/screen-covers out of this premium chart. That the includes the brilliant new Surface 3 (which we just scored 80/100 in our Australian review), the Dell Venue line and the surprisingly affordable HP Pavilion x2.

Each tablet can capably serve as a great laptop replacement option, but represent a slight splinter category to this chart's 2 in 1s with 360 degree flip hinges. For now.

Listed here are base-model specs only. The best deal also comes down to the price and extra specs you're able to score. Also consider which features matter most to you: for instance, how important is screen resolution? What about battery life or storage?
