Convertible Computers

Post by Juneberry » 6 months ago

Does anyone here have a convertible computer, or know about them? And if so, do you know any where the keyboard isn't on the bottom? I'm looking into 2-in-1 tablet/computers, but I can't find the kind I had when I was in high school. That one was hinged at the center in a way where you could turn the monitor 180 degrees and then fold it back so it laid on the keyboard, which was disabled naturally in the process. All the ones I find now are done so you just fold the top of the monitor to the bottom of the computer... And that both looks uncomfortable and difficult to use without hitting keys for me. Can anyone help me figure out a workaround with this situation?

I think I know what you're talking about.
the original tablet computers used that design back before they removed the keyboard entirely.

That, yes! That's exactly what I've been trying to find! Do they still exist?

I'll have to share this with my dad later (he's a lot better with computers than me since he worked in the field and is analytical in nature). Thanks for finding that :o
