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.

A college student sits on the ground using the Asus VivoBook Flip 14.

Asus is refreshing one of its most popular Windows 10 convertibles with big power under the hood. Now available for purchase starting at $600, the latest VivoBook Flip 14 models come with options for AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors, offering plenty of power for both work and play. That makes it an easy competitor for the best budget laptops.

With configurations including the Ryzen 5 5500U, and capping out with the Ryzen 7 5700U, Asus believes these new models have what it takes to be "perfect for multitasking and high-definition entertainment." That's also backed with up to 16GB of RAM, as well as 1TB of PCIe solid-state-drive storage on top-end configurations.

Asus ZenBook S vs. Dell XPS 13
Asus ZenBook S13

There's a race going on in the laptop space to see who can pack the most into the tiniest chassis. Dell started it all with its XPS 13, using ever-smaller bezels to create one of the smallest -- and best -- 13.3-inch laptops you can buy.

Asus entered this race with gusto, using even smaller bezels in its ZenBook line to make some of the smallest laptops around. The latest is the ZenBook S UX393, which uses a reverse notch to maximize the screen-to-body ratio of its 13.9-inch display. But is that enough to dethrone the XPS 13?

Asus ZenBook 14 (2018) vs. Apple MacBook Air
Asus ZenBook 14 UX433FN

2020 was a big year for the MacBook Air. In March, Apple ripped out the lackluster keyboard and replaced it with the Magic Keyboard featuring scissor switches, a significant upgrade to Apple's previous butterfly design. Then, in November, Apple kicked Intel to the curb and installed its own in-house processor, the M1, in a second refresh.

One of its biggest contenders is the Asus ZenBook 14. Taking cues from Apple, it's thin and light and has tiny bezels to fit a 14-inch display in a chassis usually reserved for 13-inch panels. Does it beat out the industry's trendsetter?
