Gigabyte's convertible tablet goes on sale in July

Taiwan-based Gigabyte may be more widely known for making motherboards and components. But it caught our eye at Computex this week with some new two-in-one devices about to hit the market.

The S1185 is a laptop-tablet hybrid that has a stand and detachable keyboard. The device has a variety of connectivity and ports including USB 3.0, VGA and HDMI. It will be out in the beginning of July and for around $1000.

There’s also the U21M convertible. It has an 11.6-inch screen that can swivel and turn the laptop into a tablet. It weighs about 1.4 kilograms or 3.3 pounds and is powered by Intel’s new fourth-generation Core processor codenamed Haswell. It supports up to a 256GB SSD and a 1TB hard disk drive. It will also be in out in July and start at $700.
