12 Days of Deals, Day 12: ASUS Transformer Book Flip for $200 Off

And just like that, we’re at the final day of Microsoft’s 12 Days of Deals. The final deal is for an ASUS Transformer Book Flip 15-inch transforming laptop, which is $399, a savings of $200 off the normal pricing.

Note: This deal is only available in the U.S. and Canada, sorry.


ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP550LA-UH51T Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC

Description: With a display that rotates from 0 to 360 degrees, the Transformer Book Flip covers every angle with ease. For work, use it like a traditional laptop. For games, change it into a tablet. Or for watching movies or viewing presentations, just flip it to a convenient angle for easy screen sharing. It has plenty of power, too, with a fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory, and 500GB hard drive.

Specs: 2.2 GHz Intel Core i5-5200U (5th generation) processor, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB 5400 RPM HDD, 15.6 in HD LED touchscreen (1366 x 768) with 10-finger multi-touch support, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI, DVD+/-R drive, 2-in-1 card reader, combo headphone output/microphone input jack, gigabit LAN, Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

Weight: 5.6 lbs

Color: Black

Key features: Roomy 15.6-inch display, MaxxAudio sound, DVD drive, no crapware or useless fluff.

My take: Not sure about this one. 15-inch laptops are nice for around the house, especially for kids. But I’m not sure a flip-around transforming 15-inch laptop is ideal for anyone in particular.
