Touted as a mobile machine that’s catered to the creative professionals, the ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 is a versatile notebook that’s both powerful and portable. As its name suggests, it can be rotated 360-degrees to lay flat into tablet/drawing mode.
Powered by a Ryzen R5-3700U CPU, the ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 features 8GB of DDR4 RAM as well as 256GB of M.2 SSD for fast application startup times. It also a 14-inch Full HD touch display with NanoEdge that gives a 90% screen-to-body ratio. That means a smaller device, but larger screen, greater portability.
The ZenBook Flip 14 brings with it two brand new features – world-facing camera and the new NumberPad. The former is a camera that’s designed specifically for use with mixed-reality applications, while the latter is a feature that’s found on the refreshed VivoBook Ultra A412. With a tap of the NumberPad icon on the trackpad, an LED-lit numpad appears.
Besides that, the ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 is fitted with the unique 360-degrees ErgoLift hinge design. It allows for smooth transition from laptop mode to stand, tent, and flat-out tablet mode. The all-metal hinge has been tested under harsh conditions with up to 20,000 open/close cycles. The ErgoLift hinge also lifts the laptop and tilts the keyboard for enhanced typing comfort.
