During its most recent media gathering, ASUS announced the arrival of two new consumer laptops for the Philippine market. One of which is the ZenBook Flip UX562FD. As the name suggests, this convertible device can be used as a regular laptop, and when needed can be transformed into a tablet.
The ZenBook Flip UX562FD is the world’s most compact convertible 15.6-inch laptop, with 10% less footprint compared to the previous model. It sports a 15.6-inch 4-way Frameless NanoEdge Pantone-Validated display with 4K resolution, and a screen-to-body ratio of up to 90%.
Under the hood is an 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8565U backed with 16GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM, and a 512GB SATA3 SSD. For the graphics workload, it’s also equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM.
As far as ports are concerned, you get a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port to connect the laptop to an external display, an SD card reader, and an audio combo jack.
The ZenBook Flip UX562FD’s 6-cell Li-polymer battery can last up to 15 hrs of use in a single charge, and its 360 degree ErgoLift Hinge which also raises the keyboard for a more comfortably typing experience, has been tested with 20,000 open/close cycles for outstanding reliability.
