What is it?

The ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 is a lightweight laptop featuring a touchscreen HD display that can easily be converted into a tablet. At only 3.3 lbs and 0.6 inches thick, the two-in-one device is the lightest and slimmest 14-inch model in the ASUS VivoBook Flip line.

Its Intel Dual-Core Celeron N4020 processor offers powerful, energy-efficient performance, while 4GB of RAM and a 128GB eMMC flash storage helps the laptop work fast. The ASUS SuperBattery also allows the laptop to last all day on a single charge, and protects the battery for an extended lifespan with technology that avoids overcharging.

Multiple ports adds a layer of long-term compatibility to the laptop, which allows it to connect with devices that require USB 3.2 Gen 1, USB Type-C, micro-USB 2.0 and micro-HDMI. An immersive sound system powered by ASUS SonicMaster technology also delivers a strong audio experience for a laptop.

If you purchase the ASUS VivoBook flip 14 J401 on Amazon Canada, you also get a one-year Microsoft 365 Personal subscription, which includes programs like Word, Excel and PowerPoint as well as 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage.

What people are saying

With a 4.2-star rating on Amazon Canada, customers have shared that they're fans of how lightweight the laptop is, with many adding that it suits all their needs.

It's an "excellent little laptop" for the price, said one shopper.

One reviewer was happy the laptop came in "perfect condition" and featured a "pretty good" battery life and "amazing" touchscreen.

Another customer raved that the laptop was a perfect birthday gift for their girlfriend who needed a device to help run her small business.

Someone else claimed the laptop is "excellent for anyone" who will use it for "normal personal use."

Verdict

For its price range, the ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 is a great device for casual tech users. The laptop's technical specifications are perfect for people seeking a gadget for watching movies, browsing social media or using basic programs. But for anyone who wants the most crisp display or a laptop that can run the latest games and heavy-duty programs, something with more power might be a better option.
