This is the brand new ASUS VivoBook Flip. It’s a convertible, and ASUS managed to bring these types of exquisite devices with great build quality into a more reasonable price range. Let us take a look at the ASUS VivoBook Flip, with the specific model name known as the TP301UJ – the brand flipping new laptop in the flipping market!
As far as I’m told by ASUS Malaysia, the current model of the TP301UJ that I have here isn’t finalized, and the printing on the outside has changed, but the insides are the same. To avoid any confusion that I may cause, I will not be posting any pictures or mentions of the packaging on the outside.
I’m not sure then did ASUS changed their laptop packaging style to have this clamshell design, but I like it so much. It’s so robust, yet elegant. There is a certain degree of engineering that went into where and how the cardboard is supposed to move when the box is opened too – a little like origami, but better.
A+ in packaging right here.
Opening up the box, it straight up told me that they’re in search of incredible. Laptop is covered some cloth to prevent scratches and dust, yet it has a little tab to pull the laptop out with ease.
Opening up beneath the VivoBook Flip itself is a sleeve pouch for the VivoBook Flip itself – more on this later.
Digging even deeper into the box itself is where the quick start, user manual, a velcro cable tie, the charger, and a microfiber cloth are found. Pretty much a complete set of accessory by ASUS, and they’ve been including all of these for quite some time already actually. Here’s the summary of everything found inside.
