Is this a mistake? The top-rated 2-in-1 Asus laptop is somehow 50% off (just $300)

Sometimes, a laptop deal comes along that's so good it's hard to believe. That's the case with this incredible 50% off deal on the Asus Vivobook 13 — it's just $300 right now, down from $600! Not only does it work as a normal laptop, but you can detach the display and use it as a tablet. Pair that with a complimentary one-month subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud and a mind-blowing year of Microsoft 365, and this Vivobook swaps seamlessly between fun and work.

With a detachable 13.3-inch screen, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage, this dual laptop-tablet is perfect for on the go.

A touchscreen makes the VivoBook easy to control, and it even has Windows 11 instead of Windows 10 like many other tablets. One shopper talks about how great a gift it made. "My daughter turned 18 and wanted a Mac laptop. I could not find a new one for under $1,200 and so this was the one I chose. She's in love with this complaints. I want one now!"

Great for work, but not for gaming

You might not get a lot of gaming done on this laptop — the 4GB of RAM isn't quite enough for that — but it has a powerful, 3.3GHz processor and 128GB of internal storage. If you want more space, take advantage of cloud services or use an external drive. The true value comes in the form of Microsoft 365, of which a full one-year subscription is included with purchase. That's a $100 value on its own! It also includes an Asus Pen 2.0 for easy navigation of the touch screen, as well as for taking notes and marking up documents.

How's the display?

The screen maxes out at 400 nits, which is just an easy way to measure brightness. It's basically equal to one candela of brightness, or the amount of light put out by a candle. 400 nits is fine for use indoors, but if you want to use the tablet outside or in direct sunlight, it might not be bright enough to easily see.

That said, it's an OLED screen, which means the display itself is crisp, bright, and delivers better depth of color than its competitors. Watching content on this screen would be an absolute delight, provided you're in a dark enough environment.

Two-in-one versatility

The fact that this machine moves easily from laptop to tablet and back makes it a great pick for taking on the go with you, whether as you travel or just around the house. Get your work done, then disconnect from the keyboard and kick back with the tablet to read.

Take advantage of this awesome offer while you can. You'll save $300 on the laptop, and get a $100 value thrown in with Microsoft 365. It's a fantastic option for students or just working from home in comfort.

Just look at what users have to say. "GREAT display," one said. "Fantastic screen, that also has an adequate PC built into it. The 4GB memory is tight for any heavy work, but you are buying this for the fantastic screen and it's worth it," another said.

With a detachable 13.3-inch screen, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage, this dual laptop-tablet is perfect for on the go.
