Great Versatility in One Device
The VivoBook Flip has a robust 360-degree, multi-gear metal hinge that allows users to flip seamlessly and instantly between laptop, tablet, and other modes. Users can enjoy it as a traditional laptop or tablet, go into tent mode to share the screen or conduct presentations, or create their own personal movie theater in stand mode. The VivoBook Flip has a sleek, lightweight design with a stylish metallic finish. The 13-inch VivoBook Flip is available in Icicle Gold colour.

Next-Generation Processing and Performance
The VivoBook Flip is designed for productivity and entertainment, delivering great performance with the latest 6th generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor and Windows 10 operating system. The ‘Skylake’ architecture platform delivers a significant performance leap, providing exceptional productivity and energy-efficiency. This gives users lag-free smooth hardware acceleration for stutter-free media playback, fast image-editing, and high-speed video-processing. The VivoBook Flip features a 55Wh battery that provides up to 10 hours[2] of battery life, making it ideal for users who are constantly on the go.

Fast and Easy Connectivity
The VivoBook Flip includes the latest USB Type-C port, which has a revolutionary reversible design for fast, effortless any-way-up connections. The USB 3.1 Gen 1 provides incredibly fast data transfers that are up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, cutting down hours of waiting for data transfers.

Intuitive Multi-Touch Controls with the ASUS Smart Gesture Technology
The VivoBook Flip includes a 10-point touch display for outstanding touchscreen accuracy and sensitivity, with high-precision touch sensors spaced at 5mm intervals. The large touchpad found on the VivoBook Flip features the latest ASUS Smart Gesture technology, making it easier for users to navigate or control applications through intuitive Windows gestures. Smart Gesture supports up to 4-finger gestures in Windows 10, allowing users to easily switch applications, open Cortana or the Action Center simply by tapping or swiping on the touchpad. In addition, the VivoBook Flip has an ergonomically-designed full-sized backlit keyboard with 1.6mm of key travel for tactile keystrokes. The ASUS FlipLock locks the keyboard and touchpad when the screen is flipped in tablet, stand, or tent mode to prevent accidental inputs.
