Laptop with rotatable screen
Display and Build
The ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP550LD-CJ078H sports a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The multi touch display allows you to browse apps, access tasks and edit media simply by using your fingers.
You can use the device in different modes simply by rotating the display about the hinge. It is 27.2mm thick and tips the scale at 2.6kg; both the figures are too high for a laptop with rotatable display. It looks pretty attractive with its black lid and silver keyboard deck.
Processor and Platform
Under the hood, there is a 1.9GHz Intel Core i3 processor from the fourth generation series and assisted by a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM. The RAM's capacity can be increased up to 8GB via the single unused DIMM slot. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP550LD-CJ078H carries a webcam and built-in microphone for handling online video calls. The 500GB SATA HDD provides enough space for creating a library of files.
With the SuperMulti DVD Drive, you can stream data from CDs and DVDs. The NVIDIA GeForce 820M graphics unit with 2GB DDR3 memory allows you to have fun with highly intensive games without any lag. It also has stereo speakers.
Battery and Connectivity
The ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP550LD-CJ078H runs the show with a 2 cell 38 Whr Li-Po battery and can be connected through Gigabit Ethernet, one USB 3.0 slot, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0 and digital media reader.
If you are looking for a laptop that can also be used as a slate but aren't willing to spend much, the ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP550LD-CJ078H is worth considering. It runs on the latest Windows platform, flaunts a touchscreen and boasts of sound gaming efficiency. But unlike such laptops, it has a lot of thickness and weight.
