ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 Features

Design

ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 Design

The Zenbook UX 360 is very slim. It’s about 19.3mm thick, the Zenbook it was intended to be used on the go. They are made from aluminum and Zircon which makes this system lighter and more durable than all forms of ASUS laptops.  The price of this laptop should be twice the going rate because the design alone is a killer one. The trackpad and the LED display is also excellent. The side of the Zenbook is had different external port and power button. The convertible allows this system to be turned to a tablet when you are on the go. The laptop feels very solid in hand, especially when trying to switch to the convertible tablet mode.

Software

ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 Software

ASUS will impress you with their software. You already have a various app already preinstalled on the laptop. The new ASUS software helps prevent your eyes from blue light or change in color coming from the screen of the computer, like when you are doing graphics or any color tasks. The software that locks the screen is the one that locks the keyboard and trackpad. But, overall the software on the system are great.

Hardware

Performance

With the Intel HD 515 integrated GPU on display, this allows it to function well when you are playing games and doing graphics games. This system can run well with some games without it crashing. If you love a lot of video games, this system will not be the best choice for you. In term of browsing and connectivity, this laptop performance was excellent.

Display

The ASUS Zenbook UX360 comes is designed with 13.3″ 1920 x 1080 IPS LED anti-glare touchscreen display, which makes Zenbook better options than most convertible options out there. The display has 98% of sRGB and 75% of Adobe RGB. The touch screen was very responsive.

Audio

You will enjoy music on ZenBook Flip when it’s on the highest volume. The speaker detects the tambourines and drums coming from your song easily. I discovered that I can’t distinguish between a guitar and organ on the Zenbook Flip. And none of the voice enhancement and equalizers on the Laptop will make any difference. It is better to leave the sound at the default setting.

Keyboard and Touchpad

ASUS Zenbook Flip UX360 Keyboards & Touchpad

The ZenBook Flip look cheap when they decide to use plastic for their keypads, compared to other systems in their category in the market. And to make it worse, you need to apply the certain force to type with the keyboard. The touchpad of ASUS Zenbook is about 4.1 x 2.8-inch which creates enough space to type and do every other thing on the laptop.

ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 Battery

Battery time competition is not just about HP, SAMSUNG. ASUS is no exception, ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 is also a product with relatively large battery life up to 7 hours. Performance has been checked for benchmarks on games, graphics, and processor and time spent browsing the Internet.

Conclusion

The ASUS Zenbook Flip UX360 is very light and portable and equipped with the latest technology for the professionals. This is useful for people in a business that love to use a tablet and laptop on the go because it can be converted to the tablet with the convertible option.  Do you need a convertible laptop that comes cheap, with a good battery and durability the Zenbook UX 360 will be a good option for you?
