The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 + Flip 15 Hands-On Previews!

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.

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Tech Briefing + Hands-On Previews!

We were amongst the first in the world to get some hands-on time with the THREE new 2018 ASUS ZenBook premium laptop models in Taipei. Check out the full 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing, as well as our own hands-on previews of the ZenBook 13, ZenBook 14 and ZenBook 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 models introduce the new frameless ASUS NanoEdge display. Its ultra-slim bezels on all four sides allows ASUS to deliver a screen-to-body ratio of up to 95%, offering a near borderless viewing experience.

They are now the world’s most compact laptops in their respective classes, with a smaller form factor than the previous generation. They also incorporate the unique ErgoLift hinge mechanism that automatically tilts the keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience.

Now, let’s have a close look at the three 2018 ASUS ZenBook models!

 

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook 13 (UX333)

This is the baby of the family, with a 13-inch NanoEdge display that offers a whopping 95% screen-to-body ratio. Yet it is powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics.

Despite its small size, it boasts a full-size keyboard for comfortable typing. How did ASUS accomplish this? By removing its physical numeric keypad, and replacing it with the ASUS NumberPad – a unique LED-illuminated numeric keypad integrated into the touchpad!

 

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX433)

This model is quite similar to the ZenBook 13. It has a larger 14-inch NanoEdge display with a 92% screen-to-body ratio. It is also powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics.

Like the ZenBook 13, the 2018 ASUS ZenBook 14 boasts a full-size keyboard, with the new ASUS NumberPad built into its touchpad.

 

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook 15 (UX533)

This is the big daddy of the 2018 ASUS ZenBook family. Sporting a large 15.6-inch NanoEdge display with a 92% screen-to-body ratio, it is powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics.

Because it has a relatively large chassis, it has enough space for a full-size keyboard with a physical numeric keypad. Hence, it does not come with the ASUS NumberPad built into its keypad.
