Reviews for the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP550LA-BH71T-CB
Source: Trusted Reviews
The latest hybrid from Asus falls into the same trap as most other systems in this category. The Flip’s good ergonomics, Core i7 processor and optical drive ensure that it works better in laptop mode than its rivals, but its weight and screen size make it awkward as a tablet. Those latter issues affected the HP and Toshiba systems, too.

NVIDIA GeForce 820M:
Entry level 28nm Fermi GPU from the GeForce 800M series based on the GT 620M and 710M.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
