- [Instructor] A two-in-one computer is…a Windows computer that can work…as a laptop or as tablet.…I'll be focusing specifically on the devices made…by Microsoft, the Surface Pro and the Surface Book.…But if you have a two-in-one from another maker,…they will share some characteristics…with one of these two devices.…Some two-in-one devices are designed…mainly as a tablet, but there's an optional…keyboard and trackpad accessory that you can get…to make it work like a laptop.…The Surface Pro is one of those devices.…
This is the keyboard cover.…You can see I can disconnect it very easily…and it reconnects using magnets.…So if I get it close, it snaps together…with those magnets.…Once it's attached, you can have it open…and use the Surface as a laptop…or you can close it to use that as a cover…or you can fold it all the way around to the back.…So I'll close this little kickstand,…fold it around, and then you can hold…the whole thing like a tablet and then use it that way.…Now of course you just saw me close…this kick stand in the back.…
