    I received an early Christmas present which is an Asus fliplock laptop. I want to use this laptop when I go to uni next year. So, is this laptop any good for that?

    What you have asked is a bit like asking "I have bought a vehicle. I want to use the vehicle to transport people and things. Will the vehicle be ok for this?" If the vehicle is a Ford Focus then clearly it's not going to be much use for intercontinental travel, for example, or for transporting wind turbine blades.

    What is the spec of the laptop and what exactly do you plan on using it for?

    It's an ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP300LA. I'm planning to use it for uni stuff like doing my assignments on it etc.

    You could probably adequately do most uni work on technology about 20 years past (word processor, access to google docs, Dropbox access).
    Though it looks speedy and efficient enough to make your life easier.

    For bog standard student-y tasks, it's going to be fine. If you start wanting to do anything more intensive like gaming, it's going to struggle.
