    Just came across this Asus 2-1 laptop, seems like an interesting laptop for people looking for a relatively cheap 2-1 laptop with very good processor performance (even compared to higher priced variants). Somewhat similar gpu performance to MX150 (in similar sized laptops) which is also a positive. There is also either magnets for the active pen (included in the package) or a pen holder attached to the screen(?).

    , your welcome.

    Its seems like a good laptop with a mediocre screen. According to the review an active pen is included, if this is indeed the case in other areas where it is offered too I think it is good competion to the HP Envy Ryzen 2-1 (though the Envy has a better screen).

    I know it is a bit of a gimmick but anyone else disappointed that Asus does not offer its Screenpad (TouchPad that can act as a second screen, also special software support by apps like Word) in its 2-1 laptops? I think it would be interesting for eg hotkeys while you use the active pen and touch as mouse pointer.
