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.

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.
üWindows 10 operating system

iBall offers its compbook line in two sizes one is 11 inch and 14-inch sizes. We have the larger with two of us today but they are identical apart from the screen. This is an extremely thin and light laptop on par with today's ultrabook. Built quality is better than we were expecting but still not great. The lapbook is all plastic so reflexes a lot and the keyboard dips in the center. The keyboard on the laptop is surprisingly easy to work with but the screen is dull and rainy.
