As a business person who uses laptops a lot whether at office or on business trips, I am always looking for such products that can not only run smoothly but also provide various options for me. Today, I would like to share with you two devices that I find versatile, stable and perfectly suitable for all my needs at work.
Two months ago, our company arranged a business trip for me and one week before I took off, I decided to find a new laptop to substitute the old one which I was tired of carrying around. When I was browsing on Amazon, I was immediately attracted to a compact and multifunctional product, XIDU PhilBook Touchscreen 2-in-1 Laptop. Weighing only 2.42 pounds with a 11.4-inch screen, it is easy to carry and the 2-in-1 design can really help save room on airplane.
I can use tent mode to view documents and the multi-touch function also enables me to edit them without a keyboard and a mouse, which is quite convenient on an airplane or a train.

My experience with this XIDU PhilBook Touchscreen 2-in-1 Laptop was indeed satisfying so when I went home, I bought the “bigger version” with a 14.1-inch screen – Philbook Max, whose price was as reasonable as that of the mini one.
Philbook Max is similar to Philbook in many aspects. For example, they all have a touch screen, a 360° flexible hinge and a clear display (1920*1080 resolution). I usually take PhilBook with me when traveling outside and use Philbook Max at office. These two laptops are more than enough to run office software and even some heavy games. Philbook is equipped with an Intel Atom Quad Core CPU with 4GB DDR3, 64GB eMMC memory storage The PhilBook Max is driven by an Intel Apollo Lake CPU at up to 2.5GHz burst frequency with 6GB RAM and 128GB SSD. Besides, Philbook Max also comes with a backlit keyboard, which perfectly suits the need of people who work overtime or burn the midnight oil. For me, when I need to deal with some emergent documents, I will usually bring Philbook Max home. Weighing 3.31 pounds, it is not too much a burden.
I compared the prices of these two products with similar devices online and found those of other brands having the same configurations are priced at least twice higher than XIDU products.
In terms of cost-effectiveness, I believe these two laptops are great choices for students or business people who are in need of a convertible, versatile and compact product. What’s worth mentioning here is that sophisticated aluminum alloy body of these two products. The abrasive texture gives a deluxe and comfortable touch which really manifests the excellent taste of their users. More importantly, the material helps reduce users’ fingerprints or other blots left on the laptop, which avoids awkwardness and embarrassment.
During more than two months’ use, there are few stuttering in these laptops even when running some heavy software. As a result, I highly recommend the two products to you and hope you like them as much as I do.
