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.

The complete list of specs is as follows:


  • Intel® Core™ M 6Y30
  • Intel® Core™ M 6Y30
  • Intel® Core™ M 6Y54
  • Intel® Core™ M 6Y75

Operating system

  • Windows 10 Home
  • Windows 10 Pro


  • 4 GB LPDDR3 1866MHz SDRAM Onboard Memory, up to 8 GB SDRAM

Solid State Drives

  • 128GB
  • 256GB
  • 512GB SATA3 M.2 SSD


  • 1 x Microphone-in/Headphone-out jack
  • 2 x USB 3.0 port(s)
  • 1 x USB-C Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps)
  • 1 x micro HDMI
  • 1 x SD card reader
  • 1X AC adapter plug
  • 1 x Volume up/down

If previous ZenBook models are any indication, however, it’s unlikely we’ll see much more than the base model at retail.

While pricing and release date information has yet to be revealed, the remaining specs and design information can be found on the Asus website.

Asus announced updates to two of its most portable gaming laptops at CES 2023. The 13.4-inch ROG Flow X13 has been slimmed down and powered up, making it an even more viable portable gaming option.
