Jumping to the design, the built quality, and the finish is premium. It has a glossy reflective panel. This is not the slimmest or lightweight laptop but still feels good in the hand. The dark chocolate brown colored laptop has actually a gold shimmer which reflects in sunlight. It is not overly glittery or flashy. This is subtle and quite elegant touch by iball Company.

On the bottom, you will also find the two downward facing stereo speakers.On the left of the laptop we find the power input, then the USB 3 port and the mini HDMI port. On the right of the laptop,

I didn’t have much hope for the audio output from this laptop but surprisingly it is nice and loud enough to watch movies. The clarity of the sound is nice. The display is visible even in outdoors and quite good. But the display feels highly reflective. The keyboard of IBall compBook Flip-X5 laptop has a red “I” on the keyboard which symbolizes the brand.
It is like semi keyboard getting most of the functioning keys other than the numerical keyboard. They also give a tactile feedback. But they are little smaller than the normal keys.
The touchpad is really irritating and unresponsive but I’m glad that this is a touchscreen laptop. The great thing about the device is its flexibility in keeping the laptop as you like. It is also provided with sensors for screen auto rotate. Overall I felt the laptop is a kind of hybrid.
