Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook Flip TP412FA-EC452T
It sports a design that is both original and discreet with its Aluminum Gray Star chassis with brushed metal finish that can be opened 360 ° thanks to its metal hinge (support 20,000 opening / closing cycles) to transform it into a Tablet.
This 2-in-1 Ultrabook runs on Windows 10S which aims to be secure because it only allows the installation of applications from the Windows Store. However, you can migrate to classic Windows 10 if you wish, a system that does not have these restrictions.
The screen takes advantage of multi-touch touch technology: by applying at least one finger on it, by gestures / presses, you can interact with the system and software.
As it is tactile, the screen is bright. As a result, it revives colors but is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside).
The screen also benefits from IPS technology. Its viewing angles are therefore important, both horizontally and vertically. Its colorimetry is average. The screen also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content and in particular to videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
The screen also has Eye Care technology attenuating the blue light it emits by up to 30%.
Rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes, this hybrid Ultrabook benefits from a good connection consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.0 modules to communicate and connect wirelessly, a HDMI video output useful in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port or 3 USB 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 you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
Performance, battery life of the Asus Vivobook Flip TP412FA-EC452T
The Asus Vivobook Flip TP412FA-EC452T is a compact laptop convertible into a tablet designed for everyday mobile use.
Thin and light, it is quite easy to transport. It will appeal all the more to nomads as it can last about 7 hours on battery in light use.
However, it provides good benefits in everyday use, such as office automation and Internet surfing. It is in fact built around a good amount of 8 GB RAM above the average, very appreciable in multitasking and a low-consumption Comet Lake Core i3-10110U Turbo processor significantly better than a non-Turbo Core i3 ( Core i3-7xxxU and below).
In addition, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook benefits from SSD storage making it significantly more fluid and responsive than if it were based on a hard drive. We benefit for example thanks to the SSD start / stop and launch applications much faster.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent. However, here the capacity of the on-board SSD is lower than the standard for hard disks. If 256 GB is sufficient for a number of uses, this may be too fair for some.
In this case, you can always use an external storage unit like a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
As it does not have a dedicated graphics card in terms of its positioning, this hybrid Ultrabook is not designed for games and more generally demanding graphics work. It nevertheless allows of course to view photos and videos thanks to the modest Intel UHD 620 part integrated into the Core i3 Turbo Comet Lake.
