The Hybrid is lighter, has better battery life, more battery life and more mobile. Tends to have a ultra Intel processor which substitutes power for efficientcy (runs cooler, longer batter life and less powerfull)

Laptop - usually more powerfull, uses a real mobile processor not the energy efficient U Intel series. Available in larger screens and has more ports. USB, Full HDMI, multiple sized SD cards. The are heavier and not all have touch built in.

Hybrids also almost always include a touch screen, and many will 'flip' so they can be held like a thick tablet. HDD space will usually be lower too when compared to a full laptop as hybrids are designed for mobile applications. They form a spectrum between tablets and laptops, with some being almost as powerful as a laptop, and others being barely more than a keyboard attached to a tablet.

Hybrids are basically laptops and tablets. When using as a laptop the have an off screen keyboard. While using as a tablet they use an on-screen keyboard. Hybrids are slim, light and typically have only integrated graphics (Surface Book does come with a DGP is the base (keyboard) and the processor is in the tablet part.  Because of the lack of space they have one one storage component and that is usually a SSD (MSATA).  Almost all of them now come with pens as another input device.  Most of the convertibles come with the Intel's with the U at the end of the number. Laptops processors are the more powerfull  less energy efficient Intel and AMD processors.
