The rising popularity of tablets has some people ditching their laptops and desktops for a more portable experience, but the benefits of a full keyboard can still come in handy. The models on this list blur the line between tablet and laptop, usually coining them as "hybrids."
The double-life of a hybrid appeases business professionals, students and those who want more PC capabilities in a portable and -- sometimes -- more affordable package.
Here are our top recommendations for tablets with complementary keyboard options.
The Lenovo Yoga Book is a 2-in-1 hybrid, meaning that it can be used as a laptop or tablet. The built-in backlit keyboard completely flips over, transforming it into a tablet -- and that's not even the most impressive part! That same keyboard doubles as a Wacom tablet, allowing you to write on it with a stylus the same way you would a touchscreen.
This Samsung Windows tablet does you a solid and includes its keyboard cover in its base price. The Galaxy TabPro S features an advanced display in a very slim design. It's one of the better values for a keyboard-toting Windows tablet.
Like the Samsung above, this HP also comes with the keys, but these are even more comfy than the Microsoft Surface Pro 4's keyboard. The 12-inch Elite x2 also includes a fingerprint sensor and a non-proprietary USB-C charger that can power other devices as well.
If you want an Android tablet with a keyboard, Google's latest tablet is your best bet. The Pixel C runs the latest version of Google's mobile OS known as Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and houses a speedy processor for quickly executing all tasks. Its sold-separately keyboard magnetically attaches so strongly, it stays connected even if you hold it upside down.
Though the Vaio Z Flip is more tablet-hybrid than tablet, it's too cool to leave off this list. It's a slim and stylish device, and though its keyboard isn't detachable, if you want to use it like a tablet you simply flip the screen over the keys, hence the name.
Like most tablets, the Surface Pro 4's keyboard is sold separately. Unlike most tablets, the Surface Pro 4's keyboard is a must-buy. Microsoft's latest model is the closest the company has come to perfecting the tablet-hybrid model, and the Surface Pro 4's keyboard is its best effort yet.
