I've purchased the TM420IA Ryzen 7 512gb version and I am loving it more than the Flex 5 I've purchased and had to replace the same one again in June. The keyboard feels premium and so is the touchpad. It does not feel cheaply. I am also able to use the right shift button without having to slow doand ensure that I am typing on right shift. The touchpad is not as noisy has a premium feel.

The chassis overall is aluminum-coated while the bottom plate is a hybrid of plastic and coated-aluminum. The hinges seem to act as if there are two. When the panel is pushed to 180 deg., the hinges extend a bit in order to fold and then the panel can be adusted up to 360 deg. The hinges have a glossy finish but whether they will hold up as the 20,000 fold claim by ASUS is to be known. But I'm confident the hinges will hold up for 2-3 years.

The screen's also 250nits but I'm ok with it tbh as I do not intend to use it outdoors but rather use it in an indoor environment. It's a FHD IPS panel.

The speakers are just as great as the Flex 5 but I think the Flex 5 were clearer. Then again, I have to play any music or movies over a length of time to comment. I am using QCII over bluetooth most of the time.

I have not experienced any issues yet with the Vivobook 14 within a week of use and my experience with Amazon for once has been superb when receiving my order. I did not receive a "return" item sold as New this time around (Yes!). Had the fresh new smell of hardware and still smells a bit.

One downside is the lack of PD support for USB type-C. But I can live with it and looking for alternatives in order to use my Power Bank to charge the VIvoBook. It does have a fan as well. It's on the left side of the chassis. There are open vents in the middle right next to the USB port.

Flex 5 has one advantage that it supports charging via Type-C port which is missing in this.
On the other hand, this one has upgradable Ram and faster USB ports. One Type-A and one Type-C is Gen 2 10 Gbps port on this. If you have a fast external SSD then data transfer speed will be far superior.
And as the previous poster mentioned, this is not fully plastic build but rather having some kind of metal coating over the plastic frame which gives it a more premium look than Flex 5.

Hi everyone is the extra $100 worth it? The gains seem mediocre on userbenchmark.com

But I also don't know much in this area

The fact that this particular model is selling for $600 means that it is competing with the Flex 5 directly. Most of everything that is feature in the model including the Ryzen 7 CPU is the same with the differences being the CPU, I would recommend the $699 one for a 2-in-1 laptop as you're getting a better processor and more storage. I plan to upgrade the RAM later on and never done anything as that before. And from what I've seen in a YouTube video review of the VivoBook 14, one of the two slots is soldered and cannot be upgraded. Only one slot can be upgraded.

I simply hope replacing the RAM with a 16gb one is not too tedious to do.

Really? I've had several issues such as: speakers randomly not working, fingerprint not working, USB ports all stop working, mouse buttons stop working, power button not working off charge, computer battery draining to 0 after putting to sleep... This is just what I remember. I agree with you on that else though, trackpad and key board and build quality is good

Yikes, really debating buying this as I've been looking for a 2 in 1 laptop lately. This comes with a stylus too and a decent AMD cpu so I'm actually thinking about this. If it was $100 less I'd prob insta buy it lol

I have occasionally left my laptop in sleep mode only for 15-45 minutes in day but not to find the battery had died. I have noticed the battery depleting a bit quicker when browsing and watching a YouTube video than the Flex 5 but it seems to have gone after installing updates. I haven't upgraded to version 1909 as it is showing as an optional updaate.

Given the reported issues with Windows 10 updates causing issues withspecific OEM PCs, I'm going to leave it as it is until version 1909 is automatically installed.

Edit: But I have yet to come across any issues. I don't use the fingerprint scanner as much but do have it configured and it is working without any issues with registering and recognizing my finger. I've plugged in a Sandisk USB/MicroUSB flash drive to copy my work files from the Flex 5 and plugged it in a few more times this week to transfer anything else I left out. I plugged in my old Seagate ext. hdd and I was able to transfer about 2gb of video files and no issues there as well. I only did it once.

This review is for the Ryzen 7/512GB version, but many of the components seem identical otherwise. Trying to see if the laptop posted uses the same Samsung storage. This review really goes in depth with measurements on everything from webcam and display performance to storage speed. Compares benchmarks with some other comparable machines (e.g. Acer) running Ryzen 5 that should give you a ballpark idea.

Like every other sub-$800 Ryzen laptop on the market now, the display seems to be the biggest drawback: IPS screen, ~250 nits, color space is ~60%. If you're not using this outdoors or doing color sensitive work - and most of us aren't - then there is a lot of value here for the money, especially with a laptop that actually has upgradeable RAM!

I had this laptop for a day. For anyone that needs a quality keyboard (spectre quality, latitude quality) this laptop is a hard pass. Very mushy keys.
