ASUS ZenBook Flip vs Dell XPS 13 High-end Tiger Lake laptops compared

In summary
ZenBook Flip is a convertible from ASUS with a metal casing that feels sturdy. The laptop has a nice keyboard with a lot of travel and despite the reasonably compact housing, it has full-size HDMI and ditto USB ports. The screen is well-calibrated, but the brightness is disappointing. The Tiger Lake processor does not come into its own particularly well in the ZenBook Flip, because it is tuned quite efficiently compared to the competition. The battery life is fine with about thirteen hours while browsing. As far as connections are concerned, some will miss a card reader.

Fullsize HDMI and USB
Keyboard with a lot of travel
Good screen calibration
Good battery life at low load
Silent cooling
Negatives
Relatively slow CPU
Slow SSD
Moderate maximum brightness
