9to5Toys’ Take

There aren’t many two-in-one laptops out there that catch my eye, but this option from ASUS is one of the first to pique my interest. Unfortunately, my workloads require more powerful hardware. But for people who are working on school or office work, this laptop looks like a great fit.
