I really like what Asus has done with the Transformer Book Flip TP300. The system features a relatively large 13-inch display, a premium body with real metal and some of the best performance we've seen from a 2-in-1 under $500. The main thing holding the TP300 back is the screen's lack of brightness.

The Asus Transformer Book Flip TP300LA is a great-value flexible laptop. It's built well, has a decent processor and lasts ages on a single charge. The only thing we'd like is a Full HD screen, which is available on more expensive versions of this laptop. Aside from that there's very little not to like about it, so it comes highly recommended.
