For those who follow us regularly, the new ASUS VivoBook Flip 13:15 are nothing new since we tracked in preview their specifications and the official images before the CES 2016 began. Yes, because even if ASUS has canceled at the last minute his press conference in Las Vegas, however, decided to make his presence felt with a few announcements (minor). And VivoBook Flip are precisely among the novelties.
It is convertible notebooks with Intel Skylake, USB Type-C and optional Nvidia graphics, which are combined with smaller and cheaper VivoBook Flip TP200 11.6 inches, which can be configured with Intel Celeron and Pentium (Braswell). ASUS VivoBook Flip TP301 has a 13.3-inch display, while VivoBook Flip tp501 is larger with a 15.6-inch. For both models, ASUS has provided processors (up to) Core i7 and Nvidia GeForce 940M in top configurations. They can support up to 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage on hard drives or 512GB SSD drive.
The new Flip VivoBook integrate WiFi 802.11ac, backlit keyboards and capacitive touch screens, which of course can rotate 360 degrees on the basis becoming notebook, tablet, stand and tent. The rest of the specifications provides 1.6 watt stereo speakers, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0, a USB Type-C, a HDMI, audio jack and SDHC card reader. ASUS guarantees that the VivoBook Flip 13 (TP301) will have a range of 10 hours with 55Wh battery, strangely bigger of the integrated VivoBook Flip 15 (tp501) of only 45 Wh. Perhaps to reduce weight?
The 15.6-inch model has a thickness of about 23 mm with a weight of 2.2 kg, while the 13.3-inch version measures 20 mm in thickness and weighs 1.5 kg. ASUS has not yet provided details on the price and launch date, then we will be back soon.
