Asus’ ZenBook laptops are known for sleekness, light weight and beautiful designs. Now, the company’s latest model shows these PCs can be as nimble as well. Asus recently introduced the ZenBook Flip UX360CA (available now from Asus.com starting at $699) that can be bend on a 360-degree hinge to switch the laptop between notebook, tablet, stand and tent modes.
The 13.3-inch ZenBook Flip UX360CA’s hinge features what Asus claims as a “precision-engineered multi-gear metal mechanism” that enables “silky-smooth and stepless action.” And while we don’t find it difficult to move the displays on most 2-in-1s, Asus also promises that this easy-to-move hinge will hold “the display securely at any angle,” removing the wobbling we find on some convertibles.
The ZenBook Flip UX360CA comes with an Intel Core M 6Y30 CPU and 8 GB RAM. It will cost $699 (256 GB SSD) and $799 (512 GB SSD). As on the connectivity front, the ZenBook Flip packed with a USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an SD card reader and a micro HDMI port.
As for the design is concerned, the ZenBook Flip UX360CA carries all of the hallmarks of the previous ZenBooks. From the unique concentric circle pattern on its lid to its all-aluminum design and thin and light (0.5-inch thick, 2.86-pound) mineral grey chassis, there is no major difference between ZenBook Flip and previous ZenBook models.
The Flip UX360CA also offers a 13.3-inch, 1080p IPS touchscreen display that Asus is already boasting about. The display should produce the full sRGB color gamut. According to Asus, the Flip UX360CA should last up to 10 hours on a single charge that is quite good for a 2 in 1 ultrabook.
