ASUS launched a couple of new convertibles at CES 2016, the 13.3 inch and 15.6 inch versions of the VivoBook Flip model. Relying on Skylake chipsets and sporting USB Type C ports, these models mark a new era for ASUS, as they adopt the whole “flippable design” thing.
This means we’re getting multi mode devices here, including the ASUS VivoBook Flip TP301, a 13.3 incher, accompanied by the VivoBook Flip TP501 with a 15.6 inch screen. There’s also the smaller 11.6 inch VivoBook Flip TP200, that lets you choose between Celeron or Pentium Braswell chipsets. ASUS offers the newcomers with up to a Core i7 CPU and up to NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics.
These models can support up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of hard drive storage, plus up to 512 of SSD storage. All of the notebooks come with WiFi 802.11 ac support, backlit keyboards and capacitive touchscreen displays, that are able to rotate backward and support a tent and stand mode. The 13.3 inch unit should provide 10 hours of battery life, thanks to a 55 Wh juicer, while the 15.6 incher has a 45 Wh battery.
Features also include 1.6 watt stereo speakers, a SDHC card reader, USB 2.0 port, USB Type port, HDMI jack and two USB 3.0 ports. No prices or launch dates have been unveiled.
