It may be cheap and chunky, but the Transformer Book Flip TP300LA is no slouch, outpacing both rival convertibles and Asus's own Transformer Book Chi series in performance as well as battery life. However, you get what you pay for, and so you'll have to contend with a sub-par screen, an old operating system and a form factor that is far heavier than most 2-in-1s. Even with these issues in mind, though, this flip-flopping laptop is a great balance between power and value.

The Transformer Book Flip represents another promising outing from Broadwell: the balance of value, performance and battery life is excellent, with the Flip scoring a little above average on all counts. Build quality is generally good, too, although the ergonomics need a tweak to make it really stand out.

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.
