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 Flip 13 (UX362)

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) features a 13.3-inch NanoEdge display, with a 90% screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16 GB of RAM and PCIe SSD storage.

It has a full-size keyboard, with its physical numeric keypad replaced by the new ASUS NumberPad – an LED-illuminated numeric keypad built into the touchpad! It also offers an optional world-facing camera, located next to the keyboard, which can be used for mixed-reality applications.

 

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 (UX562)

The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 (UX562) features a 15.6-inch NanoEdge display, available with either a Full HD (DeltaE < 3) or a 4K UHD panel (DeltaE <2). Both panels have a wide 100% sRGB colour gamut.

The 4K UHD display is PANTONE validated and factory-calibrated for colour accuracy. It also has built-in ASUS Calibration Technology, for easy colour calibration.

The new Flip 15 is powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics. You can equip it with both an SSD as well as a HDD.

HP Unveils Sleeker, Lighter 2nd Generation Spectre x360

Kuala Lumpur, 19 December 2016HP PPS Sales Sdn Bhd today announces the new HP Spectre x360, the second generation of HP’s revolutionary x360 convertible that now features a near zero border display in a design that is 13 percent thinner and 11 percent lighter.

 

Spectre X360

Delivering powerful performance in a sleek package, the Spectre x360 now achieves 25 percent more hours of battery life with up to 15 hours . This was accomplished by optimizing the PC for the latest 7th Generation Intel Core processors and fitting a larger 57.8W battery in the thinner design.

The new micro-edge display bezel design reduces the overall footprint by eliminating almost 10mm from each side of the screen to provide a beautiful viewing experience for improved portability.

With a new hinge design, it is 13.8mm thin, over 2mm thinner than the previous generation and is lighter at 1.295kg compared to 1.45kg. The PC now includes four speakers instead of two to deliver crisp audio. Thanks to tuning by Bang & Olufsen plus HP Audio Boost, the two forward facing speakers in addition to two on the bottom provide superb sound in every mode.

The new Spectre x360 also features great connectivity with two USB-Type C ports with Thunderbolt 3 support and a USB-Type A 3.0 port allowing users to connect the latest peripherals both today and tomorrow. The bright display boasts a 13.3-inch diagonal FHD IPS panel that delivers great viewing experiences. The Natural Silver color with polished accents on the hinges creates the sleek profile customers crave.
