I have both an Asus Flipbook, and a Microsoft Surface Pro 2. I have a part time job where I have a lot of down time, and wanted to have a computer that's half laptop, half tablet. The Asus works as this, but the 15.6 inch screen is just a little too big. The size is cumbersome, not necessarily the weight.

The Surface 2 is fine as well, but a little old and leaves a bit to be desired in the speed category (only old games, etc).

Rather than switching between the two, i'd rather get one single device that can replace both.

Here's what I'd like.

Laptop, 2-1 convertible. 13 inch touch screen, preferably Full HD (1080p). No DVD drive (no need). i5 or i7 processor, and a dedicated Nvidia GPU. My current is the 840m, hopefully I can get the same or faster.

I feel as if they got rid of the DVD drive, they could easily fit all this inside a 13 inch laptop as opposed to a 15 inch, but virtually every 13 inch one has an Intel HD integrated GPU, not Nvidia. The Asus I have is an i7 with an NV 840m, but as I mentioned, the size is slightly too cumbersome.

There are none. The few 13.3" laptops that have a dedicated GPU are in fact laptops, not convertibles. The following site has all the 13.3" laptops with dedicated GPUs. Expect the Sager and the Aorus to be rather loud since they have quad core CPUs.

If you want a convertible laptop then you need to settle for integrated graphics.

Check out the Asus TP300LJ that has a 5th generation i7, 4 GB ram [upgradeable to 12 GB], 1 TB SATA HDD and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 920M 2GB card. I bought this in September this year and am satisfied with it. I will upgrade the ram to 12 GB as I find the current 4 GB inadequate and the memory to a 256/512 GB SSD once the year's warranty expires.

Hope this helps you,
