A few years ago, laptops acquired touchscreens with multitouch support, and “dinosaurs”, which only perceived the stylus, were a thing of the past. However, until now, the touch screen can not be found far from every laptop. We’ll tell you about the most interesting models, for which keyboard and touchpad are not necessary.
Dell XPS 13 9365
Dell XPS 13 9365 weighs only 1.24 kg, but because of the thin edges a bit stingy at the usual connectors. Among them, only a headphone port, a card reader for microSD cards and two USB Type-C, one of which, fortunately, supports Thunderbolt 3.
Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 370
Unlike the above, this model has a more efficient processor – one of the modern 15-watt Intel Seven-generation models. Also in the laptop there is an SSD with a capacity of up to 512 GB and RAM up to 8 GB.
Like any self-respecting corporate laptop, the ThinkPad Yoga 370 has many different ports. There was also a place for an Ethernet connector, which you hardly ever see with modern ultrabooks, and USB 3.0, which also begins to disappear from thin laptops faster than the popularity of peripherals with USB Type-C. Cherry on the cake is a special stylus, which significantly expands the capabilities of the touch screen.
Lenovo Yoga 720 15
Despite the large screen and good hardware, Lenovo Yoga 720 15 is only 19 mm in thickness, and weighs only 2 kg. As for the ports, this model clearly does not believe in the rapid onset of the popularity of Thunderbolt 3, so it has only one, but there are two old-good USB Type-A.
HP Specter 13-w000 x360
There is also HP in its turn. By and large, this is also an ultrabook, but with a touch screen and the ability to unfold the screen 360 degrees. The latter, incidentally, supports a resolution of 1920×20180 pixels. In terms of hardware, the HP Specter 13-w000 x360 is a typical modern ultrabook. CPU – Intel Core i5 / i7 of the seventh generation with TDP 15 W, solid-state drive with capacity up to 512 GB, RAM up to 16 GB.
Surprisingly, the laptop has secured one USB Type-A port, so you do not have to carry an adapter with you. But there are also two USB Type-C ports, both with Thunderbolt support. But the lack of a slot for SD will not appeal to everyone.
Acer Aspire R7-372T-553E
But not everyone likes to repeat after others. For example, Acer Aspire R7 is also a laptop-transformer that turns into a tablet, but the keyboard does not remain face-up when it’s turned. Thanks to this design, its touch screen can be pushed to itself, which is sometimes very convenient.
This model is the most inexpensive in this material, and the only compromise is the processor of the last, the sixth line of 15-watt Intel Core. However, it is still faster than the one equipped with Dell XPS 13 9365. In the rest everything is almost the same: 13.3-display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, from 128 GB on a solid-state drive, light weight – only 1.6 kg.
Acer Aspire R7 is not only convenient on the road, it still has a lot of ports (for ultrabook), so you do not need any adapters (almost). The laptop has a full-fledged HDMI port, two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and one Thunderbolt 3. There is also a card reader for SD-cards.
