The same thing goes for two-in-one laptops that are getting more and more popular every year. However, is a multi-purpose device always the best answer?

So, the question that we have to ask is –can a multi-purpose device like a TV really be as good as specialized gaming peripherals like a monitor? Let’s find out.
