Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 TM420UA-EC214T
It has a discreet and yet original look with its thin and light Bespoke black design that can be opened 360° to transform into a Tablet thanks to its hinge supporting at least 20,000 opening/closing cycles.
The screen is equipped with multi-touch technology. As a result, you can interact with the system and software by simply affixing at least one finger to it, and this via gestures/pressures.
The tactile aspect implies a brilliant treatment that revives the colors but is sensitive to reflections in bright environments (eg exterior).
The display also adopts IPS technology, which means that its viewing angles are both horizontal and vertical. On the other hand, here the colorimetry is standard, below that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate that the screen adopts a precise Full HD definition in a 16/9th format.
A priori the keyboard could not be backlit, which is to be confirmed.
In any case, it is accompanied by a NumPad touchpad module (NumberPad) taking place at the touchpad. This technology is activatable and needed to facilitate the entry of numbers.
This versatile 2-in-1 laptop is also equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port or 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
Performance, battery life of the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 TM420UA-EC214T
The Asus Vivobook Flip 14 TM420UA-EC214T is a compact hybrid laptop intended for versatile use on the go and convertible into a tablet.
Many users will be satisfied with the performance delivered by this 2-in-1 laptop because it integrates 8 GB of RAM associated with a Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U low-power AMD Lucienne processor.
As a bonus, the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution integrated into the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play light titles.
As for storage, Asus opts for a 512 GB SSD, a capacity corresponding to the standard among hard drives. However, in the event that additional space is needed, it is possible to use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0/USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
In any case, an SSD offers several advantages compared to a simple hard drive, such as lower power consumption, greater robustness, silence of operation or greater velocity.
The latter allows the SSD to guarantee much faster starts/stops, software launches or processing for example, but also a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
As for the autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of operation on battery in light use for this hybrid laptop 2-in-1 convertible into Tablet whose transport is facilitated by the finesse, the compactness and the controlled weight.
