Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TP470EA-AS34T Review And Specification

The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 (TP470EA-AS34T, the model we used for this review) is a stylish convertible laptop that runs on Intel. The laptop's strongest component is the 11th Gen Core i3 processor, which outperforms rivals with Celeron-powered processors. The VivoBook 14 has a good build (though not one that stands out like some others), handy connectors, and a battery life of roughly 7 hours.

Although Asus didn't take many short cuts, the Flip 14 nevertheless falls short of the truly stunning Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14. Although the Asus offers the greatest pricing and outstanding performance, the keyboard deck has some flex, and its battery life is shorter than that of comparable convertibles, which last for about 10 hours.

Although it costs a few hundred dollars more than the Flip 14 TP470EA-AS34T, the IdeaPad Flex 5 is still our Editors' Choice. However, if you prioritize performance above price, you should also take the VivoBook Flip 14 into account.

Design

For the Flip 14, Asus did a nice job creating a sufficiently attractive appearance. Despite being composed of plastic, the chassis feels sturdy and is yet rather light at 3.31 pounds. The entire chassis is finished in a lovely shade of black that, when sparkled, has a somewhat dark-blue tint; this shade is known as "Bespoke Black." Black continues to look fantastic.

The VivoBook Flip 14 excels in this area since it supports the lightweight design with a small footprint that measures 0.72 by 12.8 by 8.7 inches (HWD). This mixture creates a Flip that is incredibly portable, making it simple to tuck into a bag, carry under your arm to a meeting, or juggle between courses.

Once you arrive at your destination, the VivoBook is a fantastic productivity machine because it can fit a 14-inch size into this size. Then keep in mind how reasonably priced this 2-in-1 is; overall, it's a fantastic combination. While the HP Envy x360 13 weighs the same at 3.55 pounds, the IdeaPad Flex 5 14 is slightly thicker and heavier (5.1 pounds).

The Flip 14 may be used as a tent, tablet, or in portrait mode because to the Flip 14's flexible hinges, which support the hybrid design. The Asus ErgoLift hinge, which raises the keyboard deck off the desk as you open the screen, is another feature. This gives the keyboard a modest slope, which improves airflow and gives you a more comfortable typing angle.

Keyboard, Display, and the Rest

The typical laptop chiclet-style keyboard is snappy and has adequate key travel, although we find that some of the individual keys are a little too close together. However, taking into account the total size of the laptop, it's not a terrible keyboard. The mouse click switches provide superb tactile feedback while in operation, albeit the clicks become slightly firmer as you go away from the bottom corners. The trackpad is responsive but without any special features.

Although I mentioned display size, let's concentrate on its specifications and features. The 14-inch Full HD screen on the Flip 14 TP470EA-AS34T has touch functionality and is convertible so it can be spun and used as a tablet. The bezels around it are fairly thin, especially on the edges, which helps to minimize the footprint of the laptop.

The Flip 14's screen is without a doubt one of its best qualities because it blends in with the design and has a very modern appearance. It appears large, distinct, and becomes rather brilliant. It effectively fulfills the role of a hybrid laptop as intended.
As the physical build comes to a close, we examine the ports. The VivoBook Flip 14 has most of the connectors you'll need despite being a thin and small laptop.

A single USB 2.0 port is located on the left side, and four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a USB Type-C port, a full-size HDMI output, and a microSD card slot are available on the right side. Thunderbolt 4 support is available on the Type-C port, which is an excellent bonus given the cost.

A 720p webcam in the top bezel, compatibility for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth wireless connections, and these features are all present as well.

A Battery's Life

The Flip 14 does fall behind its main rivals in terms of battery life, which is understandable given that the Acer Spin 5's 56WHr battery is substantially larger than the Flip's 43WHr. In real life, this translates to an average Flip duration of 7 hours 49 minutes and a Spin duration of almost 11 hours 5 minutes.

When turned off, Asus claims that the Flip charges from 0% to 60% in just 49 minutes, which is terrific news. However, whether that compensates for the shorter battery life depends entirely on your unique needs.
