Intel Corporation, recently showcased the latest in 2 in 1 devices that offer superior performance and versatility for work and for personal use.

A 2-in-1 device combines the powerful performance we have come to expect of a laptop with the versatility of a touch enabled tablet into a single form factor. This eliminates the need to carry, or even purchase, two separate devices.

The evolution in personal computing is made possible with the innovations driven by Intel with its latest range of processors that are significantly smaller and consuming much less power while further improving its performance. These innovations by Intel have helped device manufacturers to produce powerful 2 in 1 devices at very competitive prices, giving consumers a range of great products to choose form to suit their needs. The latest International Data Corporation (IDC) statistics also indicate that 2-in-1s have become the fastest growing mobile compute category in recent months.

Speaking at the event, Indika De Zoysa, Country Business Manager, Intel EM Ltd. – Sri Lanka Liaison Office, said that the 2 in 1s showcase Intel’s continued innovation to deliver new computing experiences in new form factors and a wide variety of designs.

“A powerful 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i series processor in your 2 in 1 means you get the best of both worlds – premium performance and great battery life of a laptop plus the fun of a tablet in one device, while those with an Intel® Atom™ processor deliver lightning fast web browsing and outstanding battery life,” he said.

Intel 2-in-1s come in two categories; convertible and detachable. Convertible 2-in-1s with larger screen sizes are perfect for users who need performance with mobility.

Users can flip, swivel or slide the screen into tablet mode. Detachable 2-in-1s with smaller screens are well-suited for users such as frequent travellers and students. The keyboard can be detached anytime which brings maximum mobility for users. Both convertible and detachable devices are powered by 6th gen Intel Core processors. Another significant advantage of the 2 in 1 is the built in mobile broadband connectivity, with most models offering a slot for a data sim, doing away with the need for a internet dongle that are commonly used with laptops.
