It’s heavy and not suited to photo editing, but has a huge hard drive and long battery life.

The Asus ZenBook Flip UX560U is a charming little oddity. It's rare to see a convertible of this size, much less one that also has a dedicated GPU. If you've been hankering to marry the performance and functionality of a workstation-style desktop replacement with the versatility of a hybrid device, this laptop will scratch that itch.

The ZenBook Flip UX560 is a good laptop for families, casual computer users who don’t want to run out of storage and those who think 13in laptops are just too small. It’s not for power users, enthusiast gamers, bargain hunters or those who want something truly portable. Being there for a specific audience is not an issue, but there are a couple of stings here. The screen is held back by its dated touchscreen style, which kills screen contrast in a well-lit room, and like some other recent Asus models there’s just a bit too much keyboard fl ex for comfort.

The Asus ZenBook Flip UX560 is a good ultra-mainstream laptop for families, casual computer users who don’t want to run out of storage and those who think 13in laptops are just too small. It’s not for power users, enthusiast gamers, bargain hunters or those who want something truly portable. Being there for a specific audience is not an issue, but there are a couple of stings here. The Asus ZenBook Flip UX560’s screen is held back by its dated touchscreen style, which kills screen contrast in a well-lit room, and like some other recent Asus models there’s just a bit too much keyboard flex for comfort.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
