We were amongst the first in the world to get some hands-on time with the new 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 and Flip 15 convertible laptops in Taipei. Check out the full 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing, as well as our own hands-on previews of the ZenBook Flip 13 and ZenBook Flip 15 laptops!
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Tech Briefing
Let’s start with the 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing by Andrew Chan, Senior Manager of the ASUS Global Product Team.
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 and Flip 15 models are essentially the convertible versions of the 2018 ASUS ZenBook laptops. They are now 10% smaller than the previous generation, thanks to their ASUS NanoEdge displays with ultra-thin bezels.
Thanks to the thinner form factor, they are now the world’s most compact convertible laptops. The NanoEdge display also delivers a more immersive viewing experience, thanks to its 90% screen-to-body ratio.
And believe it or not, these classy convertible laptops are tough – being certified to meet the MIL-STD-810G standard for durability and reliability!
Finally, both ZenBook Flip models features the 360° ErgoLift hinge design, which has a silky-smooth, stepless action that holds the display securely at any angle, allowing ZenBook Flip to be used in laptop, tablet, stand or tent modes… anything in between!
If you open the laptop beyond 135°, the ErgoLift hinge will automatically lift and tilt the keyboard to a more comfortable typing angle.
