Manananggals exist in tech.
Nope, we're not talking about those mythical aswangs of horror stories that scared the shit out of us when we were younger (okay, even up to now). Instead, we're referring to those hybrid devices that can act as a tablet and a notebook. Case in point: Toshiba's new Portege Z10t ultrabook and its detachable screen. Nice!
Going high on hybrids
First, why all the fuss about hybrid tablet-notebooks? These devices have been increasing in number the past couple of years thanks to the clamor for more versatile tech toys. A few brands have come out with hybrids, like HP and its EliteBook Revolve, and now we have the Portege Z10t. The main advantage of these devices is that they have the mobility of a tablet and the punch of a notebook. Plus points go to the fact that, at least for newer ones, they also have slimmer, elegant-looking bods.
Let's say you're one workaholic dude that's always with your laptop like it was your girl. One day, you didn't have time to prepare for a meeting with your boss and, to make matters worst, you're also running a bit late. So you decide to do your research on the way to work on the MRT. You probably all know how cramped MRT coaches are during rush hour, right? Hassle, di ba?
This is where a device like the Portege Z10t can be your pal. With its slim size and detachable display, you can use it as a tablet when in need of something more portable, like when in transit. Just be careful of the manong snatcher that's eyeing you with bad intentions.
So there, that's why hybrids are nice. Next up, the things that make the Portege Z10t even nicer...
