Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LA is a 15.6-inch laptop with Windows 8.1, but with the hinge design, the 10-point touch screen can be flipped all the way around so that it kind of becomes like a 15.6-inch tablet. Or you can put it to use in tent mode, kind of like the Acer Switch series.
And unlike some of those low-power Intel Bay Trail laptops that have flooded the market lately, the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LA has a proper Intel Core i3-4030U processor. It also has 64-bit Windows 8.1, 500GB HDD storage, 4GB DDR3L RAM (1600 MHz), and USB 3.0.
The sale is a part of Microsoft’s 12 Days Of Deals, and it’s the second last chance to get a tablet or computer on sale. On Thursday December 18, the HP Pavilion x2 10.1 will be on sale as well, for only $249. And then the day after, the December sales will end with a 12-month Xbox music subscription for $49.90.
