    The wife has asked I find her a 2-in-1 and I'm a bit lost. She has a new 15in macbook for personal use, but needs something in her new job to frequently VPN into hotel desks for an agile squad amd while at client meetings, as well as keep her own company's files on. Her top criteria are:

    Lightweight (under 3lbs)
    Good battery life
    2-in-1 capability
    Ideally would have touchscreen capability
    Windows (not Mac)

    I tried to convince her on a Razer Blade Stealth.:whistle:(as I'll likely get it as a hand me down eventually), but I got shot down as the battery life isnt reported to be the best. Not opposed to going used or last year's model if it will save schmekels/get a better model. Any advice?

    Been looking so far at...
    Lenovo 920 or 720
    HP Spectre x360
    Dell XPS 13

    I'd hit up Lenovo's Outlet and look for a Thinkpad Yoga with a 1080p screen. Those will have Wacom pen support. I've got a Yoga 260 at work, and love it.
