Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TP412FA-EC641T
This 2-in-1 Ultrabook runs on Windows 10S which only allows installation of apps from Windows Store for added security. If desired, we can migrate to Windows 10 classic.
With its Star Gray aluminum frame with brushed metal finish, which can be opened at 360 ° thanks to its metal hinge (supports 20,000 opening / closing cycles), this hybrid Ultrabook can easily and quickly be transformed into a Tablet.
The screen adopts multi-touch touch technology: by gestures / pressures of at least one finger applied to the screen, you can interact with the system and the software.
As it is tactile, the screen is brilliant. It therefore gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
For the rest, the screen adopts IPS technology ensuring comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Its colorimetry is however average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. Lovers of videos and more generally of High Definition content will appreciate that the screen has a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition.
In addition, the blue light it emits is reduced by up to 30% thanks to Eye Care technology.
This Ultrabook convertible into a Tablet also has a good connection including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.0 modules to communicate and connect wirelessly, an audio port and 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged in above.
In addition, you can reload this PC to 60% in 49 minutes.
Performance, battery life of Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TP412FA-EC641T
The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TP412FA-EC641T is a compact laptop convertible into a Tablet intended for everyday mobile use.
In terms of autonomy, it can indeed last about 7 hours on battery in light use. In addition, its transport is facilitated by its compactness, its thinness and its contained weight.
This 2-in-1 Ultrabook delivers good performance in everyday use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation, thanks to its Core i3-10110U Turbo low consumption Comet Lake processor and its good amount of 8 GB RAM above average very useful in multitasking.
It should be noted that a Core i3 Turbo is significantly more efficient than a non-Turbo Core i3 (Core i3-7xxxU and lower). That being said, the Core i3 Turbo is showing its limits under CPU demanding applications.
The Core i3 Comet Lake houses the Intel UHD 620 graphics part within it. Modest, it allows you to watch photos and videos. On the other hand, it is not designed for gaming and more generally demanding graphics work. As a result, this PC without a dedicated graphics card will not appeal to gamers.
On the other hand, it will be of interest to those who wish to benefit from good daily responsiveness. This hybrid Ultrabook indeed benefits from a silent SSD storage but also more resistant to shocks than a hard drive, less energy and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, this thin and light PC is much more responsive and fluid on a daily basis than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. We thus benefit, for example, from much faster application launches and starts / stops.
The onboard SSD here offers a capacity of 256 GB sufficient for a number of uses but lower than the standard of hard disks. If this is too fair, we can however rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
