Impressive Display to Show

ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 (UX363EA) display is a Touch screen, 13.3-inch, FHD (1920 x 1080) 16:9, IPS-level Panel, Glossy display, LED Backlit, 450nits, 100% sRGB, 80% screen-to-body ratio, with a very good contrast ratio, and comfortable viewing angles. Artists, photographers and designers will absolutely love the NanoEdge display combined with the ASUS Pen/Stylus support. The smooth-as-silk touchscreen supports the 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity that the ASUS Stylus provides; allowing users to create more detailed and vivid works. The ASUS Stylus Pen works with Windows Ink to allow you to create sticky notes, so you can capture ideas and details as they happen. You can also use the intuitive Ink Tools in Microsoft Office apps to input handwriting or shapes, apply highlighting, or edit using gestures.

Also, with the extreme contrast and accurate colour reproduction at any level, everything looks crisp and vibrant – even within darker content. This helps with eye comfort, too: you can dial down the brightness, without losing contrast and colour vibrancy, resulting in reduced blue-light emission. The display offers an ultrawide colour gamut of 100% DCI-P3, which is widely used in the motion picture industry. Thankfully, for art and design professionals, the colour accuracy is excellent, when the gaming and web design profile is applied.


6 Impressive Battery Performance

Impressive Battery Performance

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX363EA) comes with an impressive battery life you can count on for working on the go, as it should enable a runtime of at least 14 hours. The device charges with the ASUS USB-C Easy Charge for convenient charging on the go and it features fast-charge technology, which takes it from 1% to 60% in under 50 minutes. You can enjoy ultrafast charging with any PD (Power Delivery) certified charger, including the supplied 65-watt fast-charge adapter, or juice up your device on the go with airline chargers, portable chargers or power banks. It’s incredibly convenient when there are no wall sockets available, such as on flights or in vehicles.

Impressive Keyboard and Trackpad

The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX363EA) has an edge-to-edge full-sized, backlit keyboard with wide buttons which offer the perfect balance between crispness and softness. This helps to improve users typing accuracy and replicate the comfort you get when using a desktop PC keyboard. The backlit keys make typing in dark environments so much easier. 

The trackpad features a smooth surface and with an LED-illuminated numeric keypad; which can be found on many modern ASUS laptops whose keyboard lacks a full numeric keypad on the right. The keypad is activated by means of a single-touch sensor at the top-right of the touchpad. Surprisingly, turning the NumberPad on does not interfere with using the touchpad as an actual touchpad.
