Been looking around for a while now for a convertible laptop. I've decided on an i5 processor with a minimum of a 13" screen and 6GB Ram. Would prefer one with a full HD display.
have been looking at the HP Envy x360, Asus Transformer Book and the Dell Inspiron 13 7000. any advice on a good Convertible priced around £600 max would be appreciated

Best bet will be to look for professional reviews of each online and base it on your own requirements. Otherwise you risk getting the rose tinted glasses of a products owner. Very few people will have used all the machines you are interested in and even fewer again will have the exact requirements you have for the machine. I'd always suggest to people to do their own research because something that for other people is a non issue may actually be more influential to your purchasing decision so always best to be well informed.

Lots of reviews and detailed breakdowns of most major models (usually it's just minor specification differences that make little overall difference in the review). Also lists comparable products to help expand your search and find what's right for you.

More reviews, but less detailed in their nature. They also have user forums where you can find lots of discussions about specific models. There are owners threads for the main model lines which are a good way to assess which is best for your needs.

Obviously there are 100s of other sources through google.

Are you sure you want 1920x1080 on a 13" screen? It's not going to be for everyone at that size. If you can't read the text natively then it doesn't lend itself well to scaling as higher resolutions do.

I read some reviews that mentioned the text would would be difficult to read on a 13.3" screen with Full HD but that this wouldn't be too much of a problem with an IPS display? So Full HD on a 13.3" would be a no go?
At the moment I'm torn between two Laptops. Both i5. The Dell one is Full HD an 8gb RAM, the other is 1366x768 and 6GB RAM

IPS is how the pixels are constructed, it has nothing to do with the size of them. A TN-type LCD of very poor quality could be bad enough to reduce the contrast at the top and bottom of the screen and make text in those areas a little harder to read but anything that was designed to have flexible screen positioning is very unlikely to have a screen that bad.

I'd ignore the memory amount, you can always upgrade it later if need be. I'd dig into some reviews and see what the general quality of the machines were like.

Yeah I wasn't focusing too much on the memory. I'm happy with either. The main question was the Full HD vs 720p. I've yet to find any decent review of either machines, checking several top review websites
