2 in 1 laptop for engineering?

I'm starting a mechanical engineering laptop in September and was leaning towards a 2 in 1 laptop as my laptop so I could take notes/ do sketches all in one place online. Do people have any experiences with these and would recommend them or have any advice on laptops in general? I've heard surface books are good but haven't done much research on them yet. Thanks :smile:
I'm a current engineering student and I've used a Dell 2-in-1 laptop throughout the past year. I've found it very useful as I'm able to use it like either a laptop or a tablet, and store all of my notes on the university OneDrive.

If you don't mind me asking which model do you have?

It's a Dell Inspiron 2-in-1, I can't remember the specific model though.

Hey @stuckstudent84

I have a 2-in-1 laptop for my biochemistry degree. I use it for doing mechanisms in chemistry workshops; I make my lecture notes in a word document so I don't use it in lectures but it's definitely been useful. I think mines an HP envy?
