    Why I Love my 2-in-1 Ultrabook inspired by Intel

    As someone who writes and travels for a living, other than my camera, my computer is my most important tool. After years of using a traditional laptop, I switched to an incredible 2-in-1 Ultrabook. Mine is a Lenovo Yoga 13 and it easily switches from tablet to laptop (and back) and even to a stand-up easel display. The keyboard is a full keyboard and I use it to write and post blog articles from the road. When you flip the HD screen over, the keyboard is disabled and you have a full touch-screen tablet. The processing power is what separates this from other tablets, inside there's a Intel Core i5 processor running at 1.70 GHz. I also have 4 GB of RAM, which means I can edit video, while online with Firefox doing email and switch back and forth. I can watch something on YouTube, then check my email, all simultaneously.

    There's a 720p camera on the Ultrabook and I really like the new fast USB 3.0 port, which I use with an external drive. There's a USB 2.0 port too, along with an HDMI connection. The SD card slot makes it easy to transfer photos and videos from my cameras.

    The combination of entertainment device and work computer, in a slim, rugged case, means I have less weight to carry around. It also means I can take it anywhere, get my work done, then enjoy Netflix or Hulu as I travel. The Lenovo Yoga 13 Ultrabook, inspired by Intel sells for around $849.
