iBall Compbook i360: Classy, affordable, convertible

The  iBall Compbook i360,  is a Windows 10 touch screen  portable that morphs into a tablet
Bangalore, January 162017: Once you decide that the user doesn't need large on board storage  or alternate drives   like DVD, when on the move, you have unshackled the laptop PC  from many design constraints. 
This is why convertible notebooks  can be so creative. iBall's new  CompBook i360 is a 11.6 inch touch screen Windows 10 whose  360 degree hinge lets you  rotate the display part all the way  and convert  it into a flat tablet-like device. The keyboard will be unusable in this  configuration, but who cares? 
The 2 GB RAM is OK but the  32 GB storage  will be eaten away by the preinstalled Windows. You need to add  at least an equal amount of  external storage through a micro SD card.  The 0.3 MP camera is just OK and  and   1366 by 768 pixel screen resolution  is  adequate if not full HD. But the generous 10,000 mAh battery will keep you working for  6-7 hours.
Of the 2 additional USB ports, one is the latest USB 3.0  and the HDMI port will be useful  for linking many newer accessories. To  do more than check email and browse the Internet, you will need an almost always-on Internet connection since you need to store most of your files in the cloud and also use cloud based office tools.  
For  Rs 12,999, this is good value if you want full PC functionality without frills but with the huge bonus of touch. And at 1.35,  kg this is truly portable.
