The Hybrid-top combines a 15.6” convertible laptop and a stand cradle with built-in NAS storage, which instantly transforms the 15.6” laptop into a desktop. Designed for home-office users who need both a laptop and desktop PC for mobile productivity and great performance. The Hybrid-top satisfies both demands with one device. Users can easily sync-up data with the cradle anytime and anywhere. When back at the office or at home, they can remove the laptop’s keyboard and hang it on the cradle to have a desktop PC with a screen that can be adjusted to any angle for comfortable viewing. The Hybrid-top catches many birds with one smart stone.
