Asus Vivobook Flip 2-in-1 Laptop (TP412FA-XB56T)

Asus Vivobook Flip 2-in-1 Laptop (TP412FA-XB56T)

This versatile PC achieves a nice balance of portability and speed in addition to the ability to fold over itself for those times where you do not need the keyboard. As a travel companion, longer battery endurance could be helpful if you really need to be productive on the go, but for the price, this is a solid contender.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this Laptop which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

No Optical Drive. If you still use CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disks on a regular basis, you will need an external drive to read them with this Laptop.$30+

No Number Pad. If you primarily work with numbers, the lack of a number pad on this laptop could be inconvenient. You have the option of using an external number pad to remedy that, especially if you only need it on occasion.$20+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $20 on accessories, for a total cost of $1070.
