It is 32x23x1.5cm and weights a tad under 1.8kilos. This is a Windows 8.1 notebook but it has an ability that most notebooks do not have, the screen can flip through 360degrees so not only is it a notebook but also a Tablet and because it’s a Tablet then it also has touchscreen ability.

Asus has used its head when it developed the TP300L and has delivered a laptop that takes full advantage of Windows 8.1 thanks to that clever touch screen. The way it switches from laptop mode to tablet and back again with the minimum of hassle is very neat. On the downside 1.7kg is fairly heavy for a tablet so you will never confuse the TP300L for a Surface Pro 3.

Model: A rotating screen has always been an interesting method for turning a laptop into a tablet-like device and the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP300LA-C4032H uses it.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
