ASUS Announces the ZenBook Flip UX360CA

-- Versatile, slim and stylish design impresses with a full metal body --

Fremont, CA (July 6, 2016) -- ASUS today announced the ZenBook Flip UX360CA, a versatile Full HD Ultrabook capable of switching from laptop to tablet and everything in between. This ultra-thin and ultra-light convertible features a completely fanless design and lasts up to 10 hours on a full charge thanks to a powerful yet energy efficient Intel® Core™ M processor. The ZenBook Flip is available in two storage configurations of 256GB and 512GB at the affordable prices of $699 and $799 respectively.

Versatility and durability in a sleek package

The ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 employs a 360-degree hinge featuring a precision-engineered multi-gear metal mechanism for a silky-smooth and stepless action that holds the display securely at any angle, allowing for seamless switching between a high-performance laptop to a lightweight tablet at any time. Boasting an all-aluminum design with a finely Zircon-blasted finish, the ZenBook Flip is a pleasure to handle and looks good at the same time. The ZenBook Flip continues the iconic Zen-inspired concentric circle design on the lid, which is made of 2.6mm-thick pressed aluminum, giving the ZenBook Flip an elegant finish that remains durable with scratch-resistant toughness. At just 13.9mm thin and less than 2.9lbs, the ZenBook Flip is not only durable, but also great for portability.

Built for all-day experiences, featuring the latest technology

The ASUS ZenBook Flip features an Intel Core M processor, enabling a completely fanless experience with long-lasting battery life up to 10 hours. The ultrasharp Full HD touchscreen covers 72% NTSC and full sRGB color gamuts and ASUS Splendid Technology automatically adjusts the image for more accurate and lifelike colors and avoids images with temperature extremes. The included ASUS Splendid software enables further customization with pre-configured presets and a manual adjustment mode. The ZenBook Flip also features an MS Precision Touchpad, delivering a smooth and super-responsive experience.

Despite its ultra-slim profile, the ZenBook Flip features an array of ports and the latest in wireless connectivity. The ZenBook Flip has a USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C port and two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one of which features ASUS Charger+ technology, enabling quick-charging for supporting devices. An on-board micro HDMI port enables the Flip to connect to an external monitor, or the included 802.11ac WiFi can also be used to cast the screen to most smart TVs and other devices supporting wireless display casting. Dual antennas enable 867Mbps speeds over Wifi while Bluetooth 4.1 allows all the latest and greatest peripherals to be connected.
