detachable screen laptop

Detachable screen (or detachable touchscreen) is a phrase commonly associated with laptop-tablet hybrid devices, also called a convertible laptop. The device is typically a fully-featured tablet, which is connected to a docking device to provide users with a full keyboard. When connected, the tablet becomes the "screen" of the laptop. Users can disconnect the keyboard to use the device as a touchscreen tablet. The devices may be sold as a tablet or advertised as a laptop with detachable screen or convertible laptop.
