CES 2016 - ASUS unveiled a pair of VivoBook Flip devices at CES 2016, with the TP301 and TP501. The TP301 has a 13.3-inch screen while the TP501 bumps it up to a 15.6-inch display.

We went hands-on with the VivoBook Flip TP301, with its 13.3-inch screen coming in two options: HD or Full HD. Inside, you can customize it with an Intel Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processor. It comes with 4GB of RAM, but can be optioned to 8GB while it arrives with both SSD and HDD options. GPU duties are taken care of by the iGPU in the form of Intel HD 520 graphics, while the discrete GPU comes in the flavor of an NVIDIA GeForce 920M, or 940M.

Where the VivoBook Flip takes a different turn, is its 360-degree hinge that lets you flip the display all the way around, and use it as a tablet. You can also use it in laptop mode, tent mode, stand mode - or as a tablet. It's super versatile.
