Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP300LA-C4032H
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.
