Asus's upcoming ZenBook Flip UX360CA is a tablet in disguise

Asus’ ZenBook UX computers are known for their sleek appearance and compact, fanless designs. The upcoming ZenBook Flip UX360CA is no different. What is different, however, is that this model is a convertible notebook rather than a plain-old analog laptop.

Weighing in at 2.9 pounds, this MacBook challenger combines a sixth-gen Intel Core M processor with a 13-inch touch screen display and a 360-degree hinge for transformation into tablet mode.

Measuring in at 12.8″ x 8.7″ x 0.5″, the new ZenBook Flip bears an appreciable 54 Wh battery offering up to a 12-hour battery life in regular use.

With the ZenBook Flip, there are a number of configuration options, according to Asus. Processor-wise, you can choose between a Core M3, M5, and M7, while memory is limited to either 4GB or 8GB. On the storage side, you’re looking at either a 128GB or 512GB of M.2 SSD. Your display choices are 1,920 x 1,080 or 3,200 x 1,800 pixel IPS.

On top of that, you can expect 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a single USB Type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, an SD card reader, a headphone jack, and a pair of 1.6-watt speakers.
