Asus has introduced a new 11.6 inch convertible notebook with a touchscreen display that bends over backward to let you use the computer as a tablet. It’s called the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP200, and it joins larger products in the Flip family including the 13.3 inch Flip TP300LA and 15.6 inch Flip TP500LA.
Mobile Geeks spotted the new model on display at Computex in Taiwan this week.
The laptop features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel glossy IPS touchscreen display, an Intel Pentium N3700 Braswell processor, and a relatively compact design: it measures about 0.73 inches thick and weighs about 2.65 pounds.
It also has a fanless design, thanks in part to the low-power 6 watt processor which doesn’t generate much heat.
The Transformer Book Flip TP200 will be available with up to 4GB of RAM and 128GB of solid state storage, but entry-level models will have just 2GB and 32GB, respectively.
Around the sides of the laptop you’ll find a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, and a USB-C connector, as well as a separate charging port. There are power and volume buttons on the side of the laptop, allowing you to press those buttons even when you’re holding the computer in tablet mode. There’s also a microSD card reader and micro HDMI port.
Asus hasn’t announced pricing for the Transformer Book Flip TP200 yet, but other members of the Flip series tend to be priced pretty competitively with other notebook/tablet hybrids that feature 360 degree hinges.
and a crappy screen display…. we’re back to 5 years ago? Let’s hope next years tablets doesn’t come with 640×480 CTR VGA displays….
1366×768 is perfectly usable for an 11″ laptop, unlike 640×480. Increased quality of super high resolutions is not something of huge practical benefit.
Another benefit of 1366 X 768 with touch at this screen size is that it can help ameliorate the problems windows sometimes faces with scaling (which can be particularly problematic on a touch screen with relatively stubby fingers trying to tap tiny onscreen buttons and menus) since it’s viable to run most apps at 100% 1:1 scaling. This is particularly nice since many older, legacy, free, niche and smaller open-source apps, which Windows particular excels at compared to competing OSes, may never see higher resolution support.
NO STYLUS, over and over again!!! Is that hard to make all tablets stylus??? Why would I have flip notebook if I can not use stylus?
Why is there a separate power from usb 3.1?
