After our review of the Asus ZenBook Flip 15's smaller sibling model, the impression remains that it's more a laptop than a tablet. Since this is exactly the purpose of a convertible, the performance is the only aspect left that could convince.

Asus hasn't done things halfway when it comes to the case; not only has it chosen high-quality materials and a clean workmanship, but it has also conducted drop, shock and vibration stability tests according to MIL-STD 810G. When held in the hand, the convertible looks robust, but this also comes along with decent weight. This is negatively noticeable in tablet mode in particular, as it makes handling the device a bit more difficult.

As with the larger ZenBook Flip 15, users can remove the bottom cover of the Flip 14 quite easily. To do this, all screws need to be removed, two of which are hidden under the rear rubber feet. Afterwards, the bottom cover can be easily lifted off, whereby users can freely access the SSD. But since the RAM and the WLAN modules are soldered, the only maintenance options left are replacing the storage device and cleaning the fan.

Good performance for day-to-day work

The rest of the internal components delivers good system performance in everyday use and is well suited for most Office applications. The internal graphics unit also benefits from the built-in dual-channel RAM and can therefore be used for occasional photo-editing tasks. It is less suitable for games, though. Asus doesn't offer a discrete GPU option for this model.

Since the input devices cut a good figure, and the display has solid values too, working on the Asus ZenBook Flip 14 is definitely enjoyable. Only the highly reflective display surface is negatively noticeable, as it makes outdoor use practically impossible. However, if you value the option to turn your laptop into a tablet, you'll be satisfied with the Asus ZenBook Flip 14.

I made my first IT walking attempts on a 386 with 4 MB of RAM. After that followed various PCs and notebooks, which I looked after and repaired in my circle of friends and acquaintances. After an apprenticeship as a telecommunications systems engineer and several years of professional experience, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering. Today I live out my fascination for IT, technology and mobile devices by writing test reports. In my free time I like to devote myself to vegan cooking and spend time with my family, which includes a whole range of animal roommates.
