The design is the biggest USP for a convertible laptop. We can assure you that this is a well-designed laptop. You can flip it to turn it into a tablet which should be very handy if you are in a flight. The keypad is not the best point of this laptop. It is just not the best quality you would expect.
The trackpad is decent. But the best point about the design is the form factor. With dimensions of 12.95 x 8.86 x 0.95 inches, it weighs around 3.8 pounds which is very light for a laptop. Even though this is a light laptop, you can still find all the essential ports on the sides which are great (we’re looking at you, MacBook).
For the display, you have a 13.3-inch TFT LCD high definition display which comes with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. This is not as good as a full HD screen, but the pixel density is good thanks to the smaller screen size. This leads to a clear and a cleaner picture quality.
Though not the biggest display, you can still enjoy an HD movie when you are outside. It is great for media consumption and also for work on the go. The touchscreen is very responsive and with an operating system with Windows 8.1, it is a wonderful user experience.
The Asus Flip 2in1 Q302la-bsi5t16 is powered by an Intel core i5 processor. This i5 5200U processor clocks at 2.2GHz normally and when required the turbo boost improves the clock speed up to 2.7GHz which is great when you need some extra power at your disposal.
You can run pretty much anything as this is a very neat i5 chip. Be it streaming videos, working on office files or even editing photos and videos, this processor can take care of it without making a fuss.
The memory here is made up of an 8GB DDR3 RAM. This is a decent amount of memory and is good enough even for high-end users most of the time. This can help you with your multitasking and make sure you get things done fast. There is absolutely no lag even when you are running many things at the same time.
For graphics, you get Intel HD integrated graphics card. This is a decent graphics card and can help you with moderate gaming. You can run some of the latest titles with reduced settings for better frame rates. If you are a serious gamer, then you should get a hardcore gaming device.
The 500GB hard drive comes with some decent storage. It has a speed of 5400RPM which confirms that it isn’t the fastest drive we’re going to see. But, hey, it gives you some space for storing all your games, videos, office stuff and other important data.
The operating system you get here is Windows 8.1. This is the latest from Microsoft and is optimized for touch. You can get Windows 10 for free once it releases this July 2015.
Battery life in this Asus Flip 2in1 Q302la-bsi5t16 model is very impressive. You can get around 6 to 7 hours of battery life for mid-range work. If you are something more lightly you might even more out of the battery. Thanks to the small screen, you can now travel with a lot of juice left in the battery.
The connectivity options are pretty sufficient. It supports 802.11a/c Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 for pairing with devices. There are 3 USB ports in total out of which 2 are USB 3.0 ports. There is no optical drive which is understandable from the size of the laptop.
