Asus ZenBook Flip 14 review

 

A 2-in-1 laptop with its fair share of quirks

Lightweight ; Soild performer ; Well designed

Bad fingerprint reader placement ; Inconsistent Windows Ink experience

The Asus ZenBook Flip 14 is the quintessential 2-in-1 laptop for students who need a reliable computer, but that fingerprint reader needs to be moved.

Asus Zenbook Flip 14 UX461UN review

 

The Asus ZenBook Flip 14's svelte chassis belies its entry-level gaming chops.

Very good CPU performance ; Good entry-level gaming for a thin-and-light 2-in-1 ; Competitive battery life ; Impressive speakers ; Available in a value-oriented budget configuration

Display is only average and could use a 4K option ; Lid and keyboard deck bend a little under pressure ; Keyboard is mediocre and pen input suffers from a sticky display

Asus ZenBook Flip 14 UX461UN review: A sleek, solid 2-in-1 laptop that's eclipsed by our favorite

 

The $900 Asus ZenBook Flip 14 makes for a solid entry in the current crop of Intel 8th-generation 2-in-1 convertibles, but you can do better for a tad more cash.

Relatively peppy quad-core performance ; Snappy keyboard ; Above-average laptop speakers ; Solid viewing angles

Touchy fingerprint reader ; “ErgoLift” hinge makes the laptop skate on smooth surfaces ; Middling battery life

With its peppy performance, sleek design, sharp display and comfy keyboard, the $900 Asus ZenBook Flip 14 makes for a solid entry in the current crop of 8th-generation Intel-powered 2-in-1 notebooks. But you can do better if you can spend a tad more...

Asus ZenBook Flip 14 (UX461UN)

 

A 14-inch screen and dedicated graphics make the Asus ZenBook Flip 14 convertible 2-in-1 a rarity worth checking out, though don't expect to play the latest titles at the highest-quality settings.

Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card blows away integrated graphics of rival 2-in-1 systems. Appealing audio. Active pen included.

Slightly dim display. Lacks 4K screen option. No Thunderbolt 3 port.

Bottom Line: A 14-inch screen and dedicated graphics make the Asus ZenBook Flip 14 convertible 2-in-1 a rarity worth checking out, though don't expect to play the latest titles at the highest-quality settings.

Asus ZenBook Flip 14 review: portable power

 

The ZenBook Flip 14 is a 2-in-1 with a twist

Sharp looks ; Fast processor plus a discrete GPU ; Great battery life ; Lightweight ; Bright, colorful display

Speakers face downward ; Fingerprint scanner inconsistent ; Not great for even light gaming ; Keys are shallow ; Poor front-facing camera quality

The ZenBook Flip 14 may not have the level of polish the last Lenovo Yoga had, but unlike the Yoga, it has a discrete graphics chip, the latest Intel chip, and it still has the ability to keep good battery life. It just won’t win any games.

Asus ZenBook Flip 14 Review

 

The Asus ZenBook Flip 14 is a touch-screen convertible that makes (almost) no compromises. Not only does the 8th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor in the $1,299 model we tested provide stellar speed, but this laptop also has a bright, beautiful screen; long...

Asus ZenBook Flip 14 review: A slim, stylish 2-in-1 with some graphics muscle

 

Thanks to discrete graphics and a good price, this thin-and-light 14-inch convertible is a solid Yoga alternative.

The Asus ZenBook Flip 14 puts discrete graphics in a thin-and-light, two-in-one laptop. The system's other components are better than you'd find in competing models at the same price.

Its USB-C port isn't Thunderbolt 3 and can't be used to charge the laptop, the keyboard feel might take some adjustment and there's no storage for the included pen.

Asus packed a lot of value -- and discrete graphics -- into the slim ZenBook Flip 14, making it fine choice for more performance and portability in a two-in-one design.

Asus Flip 14 UX461: More grunt for your dollar

 

The proverb states that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and for mine, the Asus Flip 14 is not a device that will cause love at first sight based on its looks.

Bang for buck ; 8th-gen Intel Core processors meet 16GB of memory ; Full-size ports

Grey importing needed to get full value and discrete GPU ; Display touted as slim bezel, anything but, and a fingerprint magnet ; Stylus will be lost

ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 2-in-1 laptop review - power and elegance

Sleek Design ; Thin and light ; Powerful performance ; Excellent Display

Screen could have been bigger ; Battery could have been better

The ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 ticks all the boxes with a sleek design, amazing versatility and stunning performance. The ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 ticks all the boxes with a sleek design, amazing versatility and stunning performance.
