ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TM420 review – ASUS is back with a budget-conscious 2-in-1
Source: Laptop Media English
In conclusion, we would like to say that the VivoBook Flip 14 TM420 is a stunning looking piece of machinery. The color, the styling, the design – simply beautiful. Also, it was extremely snappy thanks to its fast NVMe SSD and the almighty Ryzen 4000U processors, which have the power to skip past any light-to-medium workload. And on top of that, you have one free RAM SODIMM slot for upgrades, providing the option for dual-channel memory, which boosts the graphics performance by quite a lot.

The Asus VivoBook Flip is a good budget convertible with no major weak points. The build is compact and lightweight, it has a healthy selection of ports and a nice screen, and battery life is decent. The performance, in particular, is a strong suit, thanks to the Ryzen 7 chip, which tops the Ryzen 5 and Intel alternatives in machines around the same price.

A surpringly powerful 2-in-1, the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 is an excellent multitasker with some surprisingly good graphics performance for a hybrid laptop. Though the 8GB RAM slows it down a bit when working with a lot of multimedia data or Chrome tabs, its more than enough for school or workplace productivity tasks.

The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 has a killer AMD Ryzen 4000-series CPU that crushed competitors within the same price range, and even outperformed pricier laptops (ahem, the Dell XPS 13). However, you’ll have to stomach a dim display and below-average battery life if you buy this notebook.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
