I purchased the ASUS Book Flip TP500LN months ago, and because of the 3 times I had to ship it back to ASUS for repair had this review held up. After all the updates and games to install, this laptop is now ready for a full review. To read all about the issues I had, read this post.
This laptop is ideal for anyone who needs extra processing power and the ability to play 3D games on higher levels of quality. If you’re a video editor, programmer or avid video game player this laptop has the hardware you need. The only 2 downsides to this laptop which keep it from being perfect are no wireless AC, and low customer satisfaction with ASUS. The specs shown with the video game benchmarks do not impede on the smooth game play. I believe the i7 processor is what help give the games such a fast and smooth loading experience. If you change the 1tb hard drive for a solid state, you can expect an improvement on the loading times. This laptop does NOT suffer from the other known ASUS laptop conditions such as losing the touch screen when closing the lid or wifi dongle not being able to reconnect after getting out of sleep mode. Making this laptop the higher quality product.
