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.
