The problem with hybrids — it’s the tablet

The reviews of these hybrids are mixed but many agree that using them as a tablet is not very pleasant. Too heavy, too bulky, and in some cases with strange compromises like having the laptop keys exposed on the back of the tablet. It brings the question what purpose these hybrid serve for most consumers? Having used tablets for over a decade I can confidently state that comfort is a big factor in determining if a given model is good or not. It wasn’t until the iPad came along, very thin and light, that tablets became acceptable to use by the masses. The comfort level, or lack thereof, is the biggest problem with these new hybrids. They are too big and bulky to be comfortable to use in the hands as tablets.
