The asus is 1080 while the Lenovo is 720. Recently Asus quality has let me down with laptop (motherboard are fine).
So I am not sure wich one, you should get. If you are happy with 720 resolution screen, I think I would go with Lenovo.

I'd really recommend going for 8 GB ram if you can afford it. Is the 2 in 1 feature essential because I feel that having 8 GB or higher ram is more important. Even for basic stuff like web browsing. Not to mention that a new laptop in 2019 should have 1080p or higher not 720p especially if you use it to stream or watch stuff.

Like this Lenovo Flex 2 in 1 is $750 right now, it has twice the ram, twice the memory (256 SSD instead of 128), and a 1080p screen plus I know that model has decent reviews, it's good for the price. I avoid glossy displays and 2 in 1s myself but this one and an Asus 14" 2-in-1 on sale for like $999 right now both have decent reviews and I think they're worth it. Using a laptop with only 128 GB of space and 4 instead of 8GB ram these days really sucks, trust me I have experience.

What do think of this one compared to the Lenovo for $750? https://www.staples.ca/en/asus-vivobook ... CA_1_20001

It can be had for $720 right now with the 10% off F&F coupon.
