If you’re fine with Chrome OS, then the Lenovo Chromebook Duet (review) could be a great device, particularly since it’s even cheaper. And for those wanting a Windows machine, should look at the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i for its detachable design or the excellent Surface Go 2 (review), although it might cost you a little more.
