Fine screen with Full HD resolution
Perfect for watching movies and videos during a flight, for example, thanks also to its thinness, the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 has a 14-inch screen and Full HD resolution . The panel also has an anti-glare coating and 178º viewing angle technology, thus guaranteeing vivid and saturated colors and contrasts, even without looking at the screen from the front. It also has quite thin frames, occupying the screen 70% of the total chassis of the convertible.
Latest generation processor
Convertibles tend to ignore this section, occupying their interior with processors that only perform in light jobs such as office automation. This is not the case with the Asus VivoBook Flip 14. Here we have a whole Intel Core i7 along with 16 GB of RAM . In addition, we have two hard drives. The first, the essential 512 GB solid disk SSD, which makes the computer go fast and without delays in opening applications. The second, an additional 1 TB capacity HDD, so that you can have all your movies, series and various work documents in order. On the graphics card side, we have an NVIDIA GeForce HX150 for smooth image display.
You also have other versions with Intel Core i3 and i5 processor available.

The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 has a keyboard with short travel keys (1.4 millimeters) which gives less feeling of fatigue when working with it. In addition, you can use the convertible, even at night, thanks to the fact that the keys light up automatically . Its touchpad supports PTP (Windows TouchPad) precision standards, ensuring smooth typing and gesture recognition with more than one finger. It is also a smart touchpad: it distinguishes the fingertip from the palm of the hand to avoid moving the cursor inadvertently.
Other features of the Asus VivoBook Flip 14
The screen of this convertible has a blue filter to reduce fatigue during long hours of work. In addition, you can configure it according to what you are doing with it: live mode for movies and photography, normal mode for daily tasks and a fully configurable mode.
In addition, Asus SonicMaster technology combines hardware and software to offer the user great sound quality. A codec ensures accurate encoding and decoding of the audio. And the speakers and resonance chambers are specifically adapted to the interior of the product, to which a special filter must be added to reduce noise.
