ASUS PH Launches Zenbook Flip S, Flip 15, and a Slew of Other Notebooks in Time for Christmas!

In typical ASUS PH fashion, the Taiwanese brand’s local presence launched a slew of notebooks and convertibles in the Philippines just in time for folks who are planning their Christmas shopping. Headlining this new batch is the ASUS Zenbook Flip S and Flip 15 convertibles.

Zenbook Flip S

The Zenbook Flip S is one of the world’s thinnest and lightest convertibles. There’s a choice between a Full HD and 4K NanoEdge display with an 80% screen-to-body ratio. Powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB SSD, it’s a compact computing powerhouse that can easily switch between work and leisure. Price: Php84,995

Zenbook Flip 15

If you need more screen real estate in a convertible, the Zenbook Flip 15 offers something similar but with a larger 15.6 inch screen. Again, there’s a choice between a Full HD or 4K display, but you also get a powerful NVIDIA GTX1050 GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM to go along with its 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. Price: 69,995

Vivobook Flip 15

While I typically associate the Vivobook badge with ASUS’ more budget laptops/convertibles, there doesn’t seem to be anything “budget” about the Vivobook Flip 15. While it’s a different model altogether from the Zenbook version, the Vivobook Flip 15 also has a 15.6 inch screen with NanoEdge bezel in choices of Full HD or 4K. It can switch between stylish laptop or versatile tablet and is powered by an Intel Core i7, i5, or i3 processor. Price: 59,995

Vivobook Flip 15 Specifications

  • Display: 15.6″ LED Full HD Anti-Glare Touchscreen
  • Storage: 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD

Vivobook Flip 14

Of course, a 15 inch convertible might be too large for some people, so ASUS outed a 14 inch Full HD version as well. It comes with a choice of Intel Core i7, i5, or i3 processors, to go along with NVIDIA 930MX graphics, up to 16GB RAM, and up to 1TB hard drive. Price: 39,995

Vivobook Flip 14 Specifications

  • Storage: 128GB SSD

Vivobook E402

If you need something that doesn’t break the bank, such as something for school or the occasional doc on the go, the Vivobook E402 is an inexpensive 14 inch HD option. You get a choice of Intel N3700/N3150/N3050 Celeron processors, Intel HD graphics, up to 4 GB RAM, and up to 1 TB hard drive. Price: 14,995

The most affordable laptop in the lineup is the 11.6 inch Vivobook E12. It packs either an Intel Core N4200 quad core or N3350 Celeron dual core processor, 2GB RAM, and a choice between 32GB/64GB/128GB storage options. Price: 13,995

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
