Some models of the recently launched ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 convertible 2-in-1 Windows 10 notebook will soon have Intel's new 7th generation "Kaby Lake" CPUs inside.
ASUS first announced the 13.3-inch ZenBook Flip UX360 in July with Intel's 6th generation "Skylake" chips and its 180 degree hinge that turns the notebook into a touchscreen tablet. Now Notebookitalia.it (via Liliputing) stated that ASUS showed off the notebook with the new "Kaby Lake" chips at a press event this week.
At least three models of the ZenBook Flip UX360 will get the new Intel chips; the UX360CA with a 4.5 watt Core M3-7Y30 processor, the UX360UAK with a 15 watt Core i5-7200U chip and the UX360UAK with a 15 watt Core i7-7500U CPU. All of them will support up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage. There will be display options of 1920x1080 and 3200x1800 resolutions for the notebooks.
The ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360UAK will be available in Europe in October for the starting price of €1,399 (about $1,571). There's no word on what the price or release date will be for the ZenBook Flip UX360CA model.
Is it dual core or quad core?
Dual with Hyperthreading
Is it just me or is this waaaay more expensive than the yoga?
1500 bucks, i5 CPU, probably 4GB RAM and maybe 256 SSD? Horrendously expensive, even if it's 8GB and 512, what are these OEM's thinking?
You mean... What is Intel thinking? An Intel Core i3 costs over £100 for a desktop - just the chip alone. For that price I can get an AMD FX with better performance and value
I'm really betting on AMD Zen here. I have to admit, i'm a bit of AMD fanboy (despite having a Surface 3 and an i5 2400. Next one hopefully ywill be a Zen.
