Written by Karthekayan Iyer | New Delhi | Updated: January 13, 2016 5:13 pm Comments If you want the Micromax Canvas Laptab to double up as a laptop, then this is not the one to pick. We live in a tech bubble – where our computing is dominated by a smartphone, tablet and a laptop. Most of us use three devices to accomplish three different set of tasks which are often differentiated based on productivity. Honestly, not everyone likes to carry these many devices and the so called detachable 2-in-1’s running Windows is the solution from consumer electronics industry to our multiple device woes. The leading tech companies want us to use one device that converges between a laptop and a tablet. Micromax Canvas Laptab The idea of detachable 2-in-1’s was pioneered by Intel when Microsoft radically changed Windows 8 for touch friendly devices but it had a problem. The industry was too slow to offer one really great solution and most devices were priced far higher on the price spectrum. Fast forward to 2016, things are completely different. Windows 8 is behind us and Microsoft has built a great repute for Windows 10. The ecosystem is flourishing and OEMs are refreshing their device form factors and even 2-in-1’s are pitching hard to win back heart of consumers. So it doesn’t take much to believe that Micromax, which recently launched its first Windows 10 laptop is giving the category another shot by refining its older Laptab at a price that would worry even the world’s no. 1 PC maker. Does Micromax Canvas Laptab live by the legacy of Intel’s vision? We will find out in our review. Specs: Windows 10 Home 64-bit | 1.83 GHz Intel Atom Z3735f | 2GB DDR3 RAM | 32GB Flash | 11.6-inch (1280 x 800) LCD | micro HDMI | micro USB | USB x2 | 9000mAh battery | 1.50 kg Price: Rs 17,999 Watch video: Micromax Canvas Laptab first look What is good? After using Canvas Laptab for more than a week, I am very sure that this is primarily a tablet and laptop use is a secondary option because the tablet is an elegant piece of hardware here. It houses all the gadgetry and plethora of ports that you would need. The tablet in itself is light compared to many others that I have tested in the category. I am very sure that you are going to be using the tablet more than the keyboard dock (more on that later). The Micromax Canvas Laptab comes with a 720p display, which is simply perfect for most cases. It’s adequately bright even at 25 percent which is definitely not bad in my opinion. The viewing angles are great and this is good enough to replace those boring in-flight entertainment systems. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Canvas Laptab LT777 runs Windows 10. The refined operating system from Redmond-based Microsoft Corporation works like a charm here. Using Windows 10 on Canvas Laptab made me believe that Windows is still the in-market OS for desktop class computing. The Canvas Laptab comes with Windows 10 build 10240 out-of-the-box and users should update it to build 10586 immediately. The update brings seamless Cortana integration which could be a neat party trick. So next time you are with a friend who wants to know the weather – simply ask Cortana to find it for you. Your friend will be surprised while you can brag of your digital native. Another notable mention goes to the tablet mode on Windows 10, which works reliably here. The moment you undock the tablet, Continuum suggests for switching from laptop to a tablet. The apps go fullscreen and virtual keyboard pops up if you are taking note. Nothing big but sure they improve your workflow. The Micromax Canvas Laptab LT777 will easily win award for marathon battery life among sub 11-inch tablets. The 9000mAh battery is extremely big for the hardware that comes with the device. Considering In
