Asus TP300L 13 inch yoga-style laptop could have NVIDIA graphics

Asus appears to be working on a line of Lenovo Yoga-style convertibles which transform from laptops into tablets when you push the screen back 360 degrees until it’s back-to-back with the keyboard. One model is the 13.3 inch Asus TP300L which showed up at the FCC in early May.

At the time, detailed specs weren’t available — but now the folks at Mobile Geeks have dug up some more details, and it looks like the Asus TP300L will be a fairly powerful computer with an Intel Haswell CPU and NVIDIA graphics.

Retail listings for the Asus TP300L paint a picture of a computer with a 13.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel toucshcreen display, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state drive. It runs Windows 8.1 64-bit software, features WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI output, and 2 USB 3.0 ports.

The machine features an Intel Core i7-4510U processor and NVIDIA GeForce 820 graphics.

It’s not clear if that means¬†every model in the new Asus convertible lineup will feature discrete graphics (or Core i7 chips, for that matter). Asus is also expected to launch a 15.6 inch model or two. But at least on this model, it looks like the dedicated graphics card might be one feature that helps set the Asus 2-in-1 system apart from Lenovo’s Yoga line of convertible laptops which feature a similar design.

    Go Asus! They’re always the first to release ultrabooks with descrete graphics. 1080p is fantastic but I wish they would increase the resolution to make this laptop stand out above the Yoga series.

    It’s only an 820, is that even worth it for the additional power consumption?
