ZenBook Flip 14 (UX461): the ultra-slim 2-in-1 laptop, delivering high-performance graphics via a discrete graphics chip.
The raw power of ZenBook Flip 14 is provided by the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor, combined with up to 16GB RAM, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 graphics and up to a 512GB PCIe® x4 SSD. With its day-long battery life of up to 13 hours, ZenBook Flip 14 delivers effortless on-the-go creativity in tablet mode, portable document-crunching in laptop mode, or stress-busting relaxation in any mode. The powerful, versatile and creative ZenBook Flip 14 does everything, with refined elegance and style.
Raw Power, Elegantly Refined.
Measuring an incredible 13.9mm thin and weighing as little as 1.4kg, the breathtakingly beautiful ZenBook Flip 14 features a unique combination of 8th Generation Intel Core processors and discrete graphics based on the groundbreaking NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture — the world's thinnest 2-in-1 laptop to use this high-performance graphics option.
ZenBook Flip 14 has an all-aluminum unibody, with an ultra-compact footprint that houses a 14-inch screen in less space than many 13-inch models. The lid features our iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish, and ZenBook Flip 14 is available in two sophisticated colors: Icicle Gold and Slate Grey.
The versatile 360° ErgoLift hinge on ZenBook Flip 14 incorporates a precision-engineered mechanism that allows users to switch effortlessly between a high-performance laptop, a lightweight tablet, or anything in between — making it the perfect digital canvas for on-the-go creativity.
Performance beyond the boundaries
ZenBook Flip 14 is built to give users the raw power they need for effortless on-the-go performance. With the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, high-performance NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete graphics, 16GB RAM and an ultrafast 512GB PCIe x4 SSD, ZenBook Flip 14 will never keep the user waiting. Whether they're creating complex documents, mining data, retouching photos, editing videos, or simply taking a gaming break, ZenBook Flip 14 lets users do more, and do it quicker.
ZenBook Flip 14 represents a step change in performance over its predecessor. The GeForce MX150 discrete graphics chip in ZenBook Flip 14 uses the groundbreaking NVIDIA Pascal architecture to deliver desktop-level performance, and the latest generation of Intel Core i7 processors give ZenBook Flip 14 processing performance that's up to 20% better than before.
Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, ZenBook Flip 14 gives users the freedom to work all day on a single battery charge. A special 57Wh lithium-polymer battery gives ZenBook Flip 14 an amazing up to 13 hours of autonomy, and also includes fast-charge technology that can recharge it to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.
Unbounded vision, amazing sound
Despite having a footprint as small as some 13-inch laptops, ZenBook Flip 14 is equipped with a 14-inch NanoEdge touchscreen. The NanoEdge design has a bezel that's just 7.15mm slim, providing the maximum screen area in the most compact size, and giving ZenBook Flip 14 an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio.
To deliver the ultimate visual experiences, ZenBook Flip 14 harnesses the power of exclusive ASUS display technologies. The wide 100% sRGB color gamut and TV-grade 1000:1 contrast ratio ensure more-vivid, more-lifelike colors, and ASUS Splendid technology fine-tunes display parameters automatically for any kind of image. ASUS Splendid also includes Eye Care mode, which reduces the emissions of blue light by up to 30%, reducing the risk of eye strain during long viewing sessions. ASUS Tru2life Video is a remarkable real-time video enhancement technology that optimizes the appearance of every pixel in every video frame, delivering a 150% contrast improvement and pin-point sharpness. ASUS TruVivid direct-bonding technology eliminates extra layers of glass to improve brightness and reduce reflections by 67%, for clearer outdoor viewing.
For truly amazing sound, ZenBook Flip 14 uses a Harman Kardon-certified ASUS SonicMaster audio system featuring a tailored mix of superior hardware — including smart amplifier technology that delivers louder sound with no distortion — and cleverly designed software to ensure the ultimate audio experience.
On-the-go productivity, without limits
ZenBook Flip 14 features a full complement of I/O ports, including the revolutionary USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) port for any-way-up connections and superfast data transfers. There are also two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a HDMI port and a microSD Card slot, so it's easy to connect to all current and future peripherals.
The full-size backlit keyboard on ZenBook Flip 14 has an impressive 1.4mm key travel, making typing more comfortable and more accurate. ZenBook Flip 14 also includes a large precision touchpad that’s cleverly engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for smooth control. The touchpad also incorporates a fingerprint sensor.
ZenBook Flip 14 provides a full Windows 10 experience for users, supporting all the latest creative and time-saving features including Windows Ink, Cortana, Modern Standby, Continuum mode, and one-touch fingerprint login with Windows Hello.
ZenBook Flip 14 also comes packaged with the ASUS Pen, a natural-feeling active stylus that can detect an amazing 1,024 pressure levels. With ASUS Pen and the Windows Ink Workspace, combined with the discrete graphics power of ZenBook Flip 14, users can unleash their visual creativity wherever they are, capturing and modifying notes, sketches and ideas whenever they need to.
