As the name implies, from a standard laptop mode, it is easy to flip the screen instantly to suit whatever task the user wants to perform — whether it is a media stand for watching a movie or viewing photos, a shared viewer for easy collaboration with friends, family or colleagues, or a tablet for playing the latest games.

The seamless one-piece chiclet keyboard is ergonomically designed for optimum typing feel, and the large multi-touch touchpad supports Smart Gestures for precise and natural fingertip control on the Flip.With Instant On technology, the Flip only takes two seconds to resume from sleep. Data loss is no longer a concern as files and data are automatically backed up when the Lithium-polymer battery charge drops below 5%.
