As with our significant other, we wish our gadgets were versatile and not be run-of-the-mill one-trick ponies. Fortunately, in the land of laptops at least, many specimens possess this trait. We list six of these metallic bad boys here!
Before anything else—kamusta ang Valentines' Day ninyo, mga pogi? Did she like your flowers/gift(s), dinner reservations, and...dessert plans? For those still scrambling for ways to bring the romansahan level to “P***ngina, I'm the Man!” levels, fret not; we've come up with lots of ways to help you achieve just that.
But if you screwed up monumentally and are looking to make it up to her in a big way, here's a tip: follow these tips. Or you could get your beloved something she'll use for work and play, everyday. It'll really help her out, plus make you look like the Dashing Hero. Convertible/Hybrid laptops are a great example. They're brainy and versatile enough that you can use them as a laptop, tablet, or even a multimedia hub—think a TV on steroids.
And if you pick one as good as our suggestions below, maybe (just maybe) your gift will count for the rest of the year as well. Check out the ala-Michael Martinez flippin' and turnin' wonders below!
LENOVO YOGA 2 PRO
The first hybrid computer on this list can easily assume four positions (laptop, tent, stand, and tablet), all easily achieved by how you turn the display. Speaking of display, the Yoga 2 Pro boasts of a Quad HD+ screen for optimal resolution for your photos, videos, games, and whatnot. SSD (solid-state-storage) capacity is part of the mix as well, making it even faster than the average PC.

ASUS TRANSFORMER BOOK TRIO
ASUS' latest contestant in the long-running convertible laptop game differs from the others in a huge way. The Transformer Book Trio is a Windows laptop when connected to its detachable keyboard. Disconnect the keyboard and hook it up with an external monitor and, voila!, you've got a Windows desktop PC! And for you Android addicts, this bad boy is also-dual boot-ready; you can switch it to Android in a jiffy when you're using it as a tablet! Ayus!
Hardware highlights: Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor (PC mode), Intel Atom Z2560 processor (tablet mode), 4GB RAM, 11.6-inch touchscreen, packaged keyboard with 500GB of storage

TOSHIBA PORTEGE Z10T
We called the Portege Z10T a mettalic manananggal when we first saw it—the darned thing splits into two, like the mythical aswang! When it's connected to its keyboard, it's a laptop. Detach it and it's a tablet. And, best of all, it looks real good as both!
Hardware highlights: Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD storage, 11.6-inch Full-HD touchscreen, external keyboard for laptop mode
