A convertible laptop that comes complete with an integrated DVD re-write drive, the Transformer Flip TP550LA from Asus is a versatile notebook that doesn't skimp on features. Packing a fourth generation Intel Core processor, large hard drive and 15.6-inch 360-degree rotating touch screen, the Transformer Flip is a portable device that blurs the line between laptop and tablet.

Flexible Computing
A 360-degree hinge on the Transformer Flip allows you to rotate the screen into the position to best suit your needs. Change between laptop at home and tablet on the go with stand and tent positions in the middle for hands free viewing on touch screen browsing.

Powered by Intel
With a fourth generation Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Transformer Flip is a convertible that packs brilliant power. With the i5, you'll be able to do the jobs you'd normally do on a full size desktop computer, from web browsing and document creation to editing your photos and videos. Add to that 8GB of memory, and multitasking between programs should be smooth and responsive. Intel's fourth generation processors include improved security features, superior graphical capabilities and consume less power, giving you a longer batter life.

Play and write DVDs and CDs
With an integrated DVD SuperMulti Drive, the Transformer Flip is a rare thing- a convertible with an optical drive. The optical drive will let you play movies, install software and read data from DVDs and CDs, or make copies and backups of your own files- so you won't need to invest in an external drive to compliemt your new device.

750GB Hard Drive
The Transformer Flip contains a 750GB hard drive. This huge storage device will allow you to keep up to 180,000 songs or 50 hours of video or 150,000 photos- plenty of room to ensure that your most needed files, folders and programs are always with you.

Touch, See, Hear
Take control of Windows 8.1 using the responsive and accurate touch screen. Designed to be touched, Windows 8.1 supports gestures like swiping and pinching to help you connect with your apps in intuitive ways. The high definition display on the Transformer Flip will let you see incredible detail in your photos and videos. When combined with the built-in speakers and Asus SonicMaster technology, the Transformer Flip becomes a brilliant multimedia machine, delivering smooth, rich and detailed sound in music, movies, voice and even gaming.
