TRANS­FORMER BOOK FLIP ASUS

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

Ver­sa­til­ity is a good thing, but this hy­brid 15-inch lap­top with screen that flips into tablet mode might make you ques­tion how of­ten you’ll use a 2kg tablet. As a tablet, it’s big and bulky. As a lap­top, it’s a sturdy unit with a well-spaced key­board, pow­ered by an In­tel Core i7 chip and with 8GB RAM. One aes­thetic com­plaint is that while the brushed-metal black lid is very at­trac­tive, it also shows all finger­print marks. The unit’s ports in­clude one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 and a HDMI. Where the ma­chine disappoints is in screen res­o­lu­tion and bright­ness.
