and pictures are not flip version.
there is no word of "touchcreen" in product detail. and "anti-glare display" is written at there.

Per the link,

Memory 4 GB DDR4 2400MHz SDRAM Onboard memory, 1 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion, up to 12 GB SDRAM

https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/A...fications/



Also, it doesn't mention anywhere about battery life. Anyone have any experience with this laptop?

"★★★★★ 1 out of 5 stars. Robin816 · a month ago
Forced lack of privacy!
I just received this today. I was trying to set the computer up and the agreement screen came on listing all the ways ASUS wants to use and sell your data, force the use of Mcafee, along with supposedly links such as, customer service, policies, "opting out", and "privacy settings". NONE of the links were active. The curser would go dead when in the agreement section. The only thing it would let you click on was, "Accept". I am packing this computer back up and taking it back. This seems to be the only option available to have any control over my data and personal information."

I'm guessing above review was for a different configuration of this Vivobook... perhaps one available recently thru BestBuy? That's because the Costco configuration appears to be just-released (negative review is month old) and specific to them at this time. Specs seem pretty solid on this Costco deal... would like confirmation on battery life estimate though.

you are right, so it is not "flip" version, just vivobook 14".
model name is f412da at your asus link and costco link.
this f412da is not flip, not touchscreen, just anti glare display.

flip version is this.

and iam wrong.
flip version can upgrade ram with one slot

I was about to pull the trigger on this one https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/d...585-laptop with a 10% off coupon (so $484). Same processor, any opinions on if it's worth the extra $30? I've not had an Asus in years.

How does this compare with Lenovo Ideapad S340 that was being sold for $400 at costco [costco.com]? I understand that it is being sold for $450 now, but I bought it last week when it was for $400.

Please let me know, I need two of these for kids in middle school.

Its predecessor (2500u) runs toasty and sucks juice like an HQ. The other issue is the lack of UV. I can do -100mv on my 8250u, but with these amd chips that's not an option.

I am considering buying this laptop but how does it stack up against the Lenovo S340 with the same price and similar specs? Also any thoughts I should know about their processors?

The TDP for both chips is the same, 15 watt so roughly same amount of heat. The Asus has more cores and better graphics. The Lenovo is a bigger, and around 1/2 pound heavier laptop, you get more screen size. But I think 14 is a good size, I would go with the Asus it's a nicer form factor IMO. Asus also adds a fingerprint reader.
