Right now, you can get the ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP500LA signature edition laptop for just $299 at the Microsoft Store, instead of its original price of $499 ($200 in savings). This laptop has been popping in and out of stock every since the Microsoft Store's Boxing Week Sale began, so here's your chance to get it but be quick about it!
The 15.6" ASUS Transformer book flip laptop features the folllowing noteworthy specs:
- HD touch screen
- Intel Core i3
- 4GB memory
- 500 hard drive
- up to 5 hour battery life
What sets this laptop apart from the rest is that it's a "book flip", which means that you can flip the screen whichever you want, anywhere from 0 to 360 degrees. You can use it as a regular lapotp or you can push the screen the other way to essentially flip the laptop on itself and use it as a tablet.
If I didn't already have a tablet and a laptop, I would definitely get it just for this feature alone because not only is the screen large enough to fit most needs, but it's nice to have the convenience of basically having two gadgets in one (as it acts as both a tablet and a laptop).
Here's what one reviewer had to say about it on the Microsoft Store's site:
Going to start by saying that if you can catch this computer on sale, that it really is an amazing deal and bang for your buck [...] I use my laptop for streaming video/music, iTunes, browsing, and running Office 365. I noticed no performance issues or slowdowns. The speaker quality on the laptop is fantastic at this price point, and I got about 7 hours of battery on my first charge cycle, better than I expected considering Microsoft said up to 5 hours. Touchscreen is also very responsive and noticed no issues.
The Microsoft Store always offers free shipping, so apart from taxes, you won't have to pay any additional fees. I ordered from the Microsoft Store not too long ago and I have to admit that I was very surprised when the mailman rang my doorbell with my order as soon as two days later.
