Is There Any 2 in 1 Ultrabook PC Tablet That Has Graphics?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been shopping around for a while searching for the ideal mobile system that has everything I could possibly need. I am a digital artist and I like to play games like WoW, Starcraft, Dota 2, etc... So based on that I've been looking for a laptop that has the following features:

- Touch screen 13 or 15 inch 1080p display that can fold 360 degrees backwards to switch from clam-shell to tablet mode
- At least some form of dedicated graphics from AMD or Nvidia

I want the tablet mode type of touch screen because that's really nice to have whenever I draw in photoshop or zbrush and its way easier to carry than a separate drawing tablet, But I really hate the compromise in graphics to have that touch screen. Is there anything out there that has both?

Not that I am aware of.
Even low end graphics would put a strain on power (battery life) and TDP (extra heat) limitations of the transformer/2-in-1 form factor.

I might be wrong though- you never know.
