Gizmodo includes scores (out of 100) on Australian reviews: full 'How We Rate' info is available here. That scoring is reflected in this chart, along with scores from a selection of other leading tech sites. In doing so, our goal is to make this meta-chart as useful as possible to you. Share your thoughts in the comments!

The focus here is on machines under $750. Most are significantly under that amount, although the Asus T300 Chi only barely scrapes in on its minimum specifications. 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.
