I want to buy a 2-in-1 laptop, and have been considering some models:
- Surface Pro
- Hp spectre x360
- Hp spectre x2
- Lenovo Yoga

I won't use it for gaming, I pretty much just use Office, internet, and things like that.
I tried both the Lenovo Yoga and the Hp Spectre x360 at a store, and I found it a little awkward resting my hands against the keyboard when flipping the screen into tablet mode.
I tried also Surface Pro and Hp spectre x2, which have a detachable keyboard, so I didn’t have this problem. However, I don’t if they are sturdy. Another problem would be the number of USB ports: Hp spectre x2 has 2 ports, and Surface Pro has only one! (so, since I am always using a mouse, this would be kind of bothersome).

Can anyone help me to decide?
If you guys have some other option to suggest, besides these four, that is ok too.

Thanks

Alright! I have the Lenovo Yoga! I can personally say it's pretty fantastic. I don't use it for gaming, I use it for normal productivity. For USB's you can buy a hub if you want addition USB ports so that's not an big issue.

The build quality of the Yoga is pretty fantastic! The only real compliant I can have is the right shift key is smaller than the average, but it does take some time to get used to.

I've used the Surface Pro I didn't like it just because it felt more like a tablet rather than a full fledge laptop. HP Spectre is cool but I've always liked Lenovo for there build quality.
