The ZenBook Flip UX360UA from ASUS combines elegant sophistication with the convenience and versatility of a 360°-rotatable display. This ultra-thin, ultra-light convertible is a stylish laptop, a handy tablet, or anything in between. The exclusive Infinity Hinge is a miniature design masterpiece, with a cover that’s only 1.43mm thick housing the super-solid mechanism. The ZenBook Flip is incredibly powerful, with a 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processor, up to a 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, so it sails through everyday computing tasks with ease. It has an ergonomic backlit keyboard with full-size keys, and its amazing battery lasts up to 12 hours between charges!
The Flip UX360CA carries all of the hallmarks of the ZenBook line, from the unique concentric circle pattern on its lid to its all-aluminum design and thin and light (1.27cm thick, 1.30kg) mineral grey chassis.
According to Asus, the Flip UX360CA should last up to 10 hours on a single charge, which would beat the 8-hour, 3 minute average for ultraportable notebooks. We look forward to testing this claim when it comes in.
The Flip UX360CA will also offer a 13.3-inch, 1080p IPS touchscreen display that Asus is already boasting about. The display should produce the full sRGB colour gamut, while the company's Splendid Technology will automatically adjust the image for more accurate and lifelike colours and avoid extremely warm or cold picture temperature.
With the right price, the Zenbook UX360UA could be the best mid-range 13-inch convertible you can get for your money in the second half of this year and a perfect fit for an average user with regular demands. It checks most of the right boxes, from looks to build quality, from performance to battery life, and whilst the Zenbook Flip UX360UA is not yet available at the time of this article, it should be available towards the end of September, and most likely with Intel Skylake hardware (Core i5-6200U and Core i7-6500U processors).
