Technology has evolved into an ecosystem of multiple form factors and devices. In such a cluttered environment, we seek to unify our experiences with devices like the Gigabyte U21MD, a very convenient 3-in-1 computer.
This device can take 3 shapes and become a tablet, a laptop and a desktop in a matter of seconds. It uses the traditional screen-flipping technology we have seen in early tablet computers, with a centered hinge that is tested for 10,000 rotations.
The most interesting part is probably desktop mode, which is made possible thanks to a dock that allows for a connection with monitors, keyboards and more. It even has a speaker for your media consumption! It’s portable, it’s fun and it’s also made for hard work. But just how powerful is the Gigabyte U21MD hyprid?

It’s looking like a great laptop for certain users. I certainly would enjoy using these for editing in desktop mode, using as a laptop when at events and enjoying its tablet mode when relaxing.
