The lid bends back on a stiff hinge and the upper lid does not flex when you touch or tap it in any angle. The screen comes in 1,366×768-pixel resolution.

You will have a decent 14 inch laptop with the Asus VivoBook when it comes to its touchscreen feature and ultra thin design. However, it is not quite impressive when it comes to its screen resolution, memory capacity, processor speed and other specs that other high end unit is capable of. This is a good option if you want to settle for a cheap unit in replacement for the other expensive model.
