Tablet with keyboard in the test

Great typing on the tablet

Good and cheap 2-in-1 tablets must be able to do this

Tablets are great for on the go, but the devices lack a keyboard for convenient typing. 2-in-1 tablets with a keyboard solve this problem. We show strong devices from our test and a Bluetooth extra.

Tablets with keyboard in the test: the best 2-in-1 models

Do you really have to lug the heavy notebook and the bulky power supply for a few lines of text? Current tablets are no longer a gimmick, but can also replace your laptop or PC at home. However, typing on the touchscreen is rather uncomfortable for a long time. The virtual keyboard is sufficient for a few words in between, but if you want to type longer texts on a glass pane, you quickly look around for a reasonable keyboard. A tablet or keyboard – or a 2-1-in device – or a Bluetooth keyboard for retrofitting can help.

We present two highlights from our leaderboard. And if you want to convert your normal tablet into a quasi-2-in-1, we also have a little trick in store for you.

Top device: Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Benefits
Bright display
Super Performance
Good configuration with USB-C
Disadvantage
keyboard unit sold separately
Shorter battery life than its predecessor
No Thunderbolt 3

The Surface Pro 7 was convincing in almost all areas in the test , Equipped with a quad-core Intel Core i7 – 1065 G7, 16 GByte RAM and the 256 GByte of flash memory enables the Surface Pro 7 to achieve top performance without compromising on the battery. In the test, he brought it up without a keyboard unit 08: 36 hours and fully recharges within two hours. The 12, 3-inch screen could us with its resolution of 2. 736 x 1.824 Pixels with a pixel density of 267 ppi and a maximum brightness of 422 cd / m² also convince. In terms of price only, the Surface Pro 7 left a bland aftertaste, because the keyboard unit has not been included since the sixth generation and must be purchased later.

Price-performance tip: Samsung Galaxy Book 10. 6

Benefits
LTE interface on board
Great battery life
Strong price-performance ratio
Disadvantage
Highly reflective display
Just 64 GByte storage space

At first glance this is Samsung Galaxy Book 10. 6 LTE a normal, unspectacular tablet with Windows. But with a flick of the wrist, the tablet can be plugged into the supplied docking station, which turns it into a notebook. And that's a real plus point: the connection to the tablet unit is quick and easy, the keyboard is suitable for typing longer texts.

But the technical basis is also convincing: A current Intel Core m3-7Y works inside the tablet . The Full HD display is also great: checkerboard contrast, color display and pixel density of the 10 , 6-inch screens are convincing, even if it partly reflects something bad. However, the price is unbeatable: The round 700 Euro for the the Galaxy Book 10. 6 January 2020 is what makes it the undisputed price-performance winner.

Stable bracket
Pleasant handling
