Engadget Review

The Flip series has an innovative design, but the 15-inch version doesn't make much sense unless you need the discrete graphics or the 2,880 x 1,620 screen.

Pros
  • Attractive
  • Innovative design
  • Mostly reliable trackpad
  • Bright IPS display, optional 2,880 x 1,620 resolution
Cons
  • Big and heavy for a convertible
  • Disappointing battery life
  • Can get loud
  • Some performance bugs (fixes coming)
