Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TM420IA-EC020T
With its Bespoke Black metal frame with an entry key cut out in yellow that can be opened 360 ° with its special hinge (which supports 20,000 open / close cycles) allowing it to be transformed into a Tablet, it has a sober and original look.
The screen is adorned with multi-touch touch technology allowing interaction with the software and the system by simple gestures / pressures of at least one finger placed on it.
Due to its tactile aspect, the screen is brilliant and therefore gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen displays wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It is also very well suited to videos and more generally to High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and its precise Full HD definition.
As a backlighting system equips the chiclet keyboard, the keys can be distinguished correctly when the ambient light is reduced.
Obviously, like any portable PC with a format less than 15 inches, it does not have a physical numeric keypad on the right for lack of space.
However, Asus offers this thin and light hybrid computer its NumPad (NumberPad) technology which allows the touchpad to be used as a tactile numeric keypad if necessary.
The connectivity integrated into this 2-in-1 laptop is also good, consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, an output Practical HDMI video to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, with an audio port but also 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
Performance, battery life of Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TM420IA-EC020T
The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TM420IA-EC020T is a laptop convertible into a compact tablet intended for everyday mobile use.
It delivers good overall performance because it is built around an AMD Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4500U Renoir low consumption processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM, enough to satisfy many users.
However, to often perform work that requires processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
In addition, this hybrid PC is not equipped with a dedicated graphics card … but it still allows you to play titles that do not consume 3D resources. The Radeon Vega 6 graphics part integrated into the Renoir Ryzen 5 is indeed positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card and is more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors.
We can of course also watch photos and videos with this thin and light laptop convertible into a Tablet which benefits from a reactivity clearly reinforced by its SSD storage. With its 512 GB, the SSD rivals hard drives in terms of capacity while being much faster, more energy efficient, more robust and silent.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, we benefit, for example, from much faster starts / stops and launches of software as well as processing or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Obviously if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this 2-in-1 hybrid computer, which is as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its low weight, its compactness and its thinness, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
