Tablets have quickly become the must-have tech gadget. They're easy to use, speedy and fit into almost any bag, so you can take them anywhere. But they're not quite as practical as your trusty old laptop when it comes to getting some real work done.

To fill the gap in the market, manufacturers are releasing a host of new tablet-laptop 2-in-1s to give you the best of both – some even come with detachable keyboards. We've rounded up the three that give all the portability of a tablet, but with the work ethic of a laptop. Some tablets come with keyboards attached, where as others require that you buy them separately. We've tested and reviewed keyboards for Apple, Android and Microsoft devices

If you simply want to see the cream of the tablet crop, check out our complete list of Best Buy tablets.

We test tablets more thoroughly than anyone else

Our tests go further than those carried out by other organisations, and because Which? is independent and doesn't accept advertising or freebies, you can trust our reviews to give you the full, honest and impartial truth about a product.

We put each and every tablet through a gruelling set of tests to see exactly how they compare. Our tests are made up of a mixture of technical measurements and real-life ease-of-use testing.

For example, we play video continuously to see how long the tablet's battery will last - this can range from three hours to 12. We also test the screen in various light conditions, to see if all those fancy resolution numbers actually add up to a sharp screen and fantastic-looking films.
