When you adjust the angle to 180°, you can share the screen with a friend or client while the multi-touch display enables users to drag, click, and type anything without the need of a mouse and physical keyboard. In addition, when at work, you can use the work mode for high efficiency and when you return home you can use tent mode to relax watching a movie or TV Show.
Large Display with 4.9mm Narrow Edges
Nowadays, a fullview display is standard in smartphones and it’s starting to enter the laptop market too. The PhilBook Y3 features 4.9mm narrow bezels around its 13.3″ display offering an immersive viewing experience that is rare among 2in1 laptops in the market. Also, this allows for a screen/body ratio of 75% usually found in mid-to-high end products. Moreover, the display supports multitouch and has 1920*1080 resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio to be comfortable for document editing, web browsing, and watching videos or photos.
