There’s still enough to like about the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 to make it worth a look. It's an attractive laptop, and the options of using it in tablet, tent, and stand modes can come in handy. We just wish it had come equipped with a solid-state drive...and perhaps a better Webcam.

As colorful as the display is, there are far too many issues with the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 to recommend this 2-in-1. Its sub-6-hour battery life is a deal breaker on its own, and when that's paired with a bouncy keyboard and a sluggish hard drive, this laptop will give you too many headaches.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
