Chassis, connectivity, screen of the Asus ZenBook Flip UM462DA-AI028T
The chassis of the Asus ZenBook Flip UM462DA-AI028T is similar to that of its big brother under Intel (Asus ZenBook Flip UX562). It is composed mainly of aluminum and set on an angular silhouette with sharp edges, beveled and chrome around the base and the touchpad. The color prefers a sober silver tone perfectly smooth, enough to go unnoticed in a professional environment.
We find the system of hinges ErgoLift dear to Asus who on this model raise the base on a 140-degree angle and then rotate up to 360 degrees to offer different uses (tablet, tent, bridge, etc.). The design of the hinges has been revised with a glossy finish.
The keyboard is backlit by white LEDs on three levels of intensity , a plus for working in the dark. Another feature welcome on this Zenbook Flip, Number Pad will allow to appear a keypad highlighted (retro LED) on the touchpad following a pressure in the upper right corner. This is very convenient for those who regularly enter numbers.
For its part, the screen sports Nano Edge trimmed edges that take advantage of the compacted chassis. The impression of immersion is even more present. Its Full HD (1920 x 1080px) resolution provides a large, clean display space and makes the most of High Definition content, while IPS technology opens up viewing angles and reproduces faithfully the colors. The touch offers a whole new dimension to Windows 10 more fun and interactive but involves a glossy display that will reflect the ambient brightness. The active stylus is provided to make the most of the touch screen and work accurately.
Let\’s finish this study of the case by a tour of connectivity. We stay in the basic with three USB ports including a limited by the standard 2.0 and a USB Type-C Gen1 (no Thunderbolt 3), a microSD card reader and an HDMI output. The webcam is infrared for the easy recognition of Windows Hello and Asus updates the Wifi modules AC and Bluetooth 4.2.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ZenBook Flip UM462DA-AI028T
After the sleek chassis and the NumPad, it is the storage that holds the attention in this ZenBook Flip UM462DA-AI028T since it is entrusted to a 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD . This will significantly increase the overall system responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a mechanical hard drive configuration. Based on a PCIe interface faster than SATA3, the SSD provides shortened download times, a virtually instantaneous launch of Windows and very fast file copies, not to mention the qualities in terms of energy savings, durability and of silence of the SSD. To spoil anything, its capacity is not ridiculous and can host a good part of your toy library.
At its heart, the ultrabook contains an AMD processor of last generation Quad Core Ryzen 5 3500U low consumption. Announced at the beginning of the year, it succeeds the Ryzen 5 2500U with a gain of more and less 10% in terms of power, what to come to a level close to a Quad Core i5-8265U. In fact, the current use is well supported and you can even tackle the missions of photo editing, video editing and light calculation without shaking too much. Especially since the APU is supported by 8 GB of RAM , a total adequate to navigate with fluidity in multitasking .
The AMD Radeon Vega 8 chipset integrated in the processor will take care of the graphic rendering, namely that it holds the high drama to the Intel UHD 620 chip of Whiskey Lake GPUs. While the latter is similar to a GeForce MX110 in terms of performance, the Vega 8 will match a GeForce MX130 and allow a little game definition and average details (1366 x 768 px).
A point on the autonomy finally, who has to deal with a small battery of 42 Whr. Expect not to exceed often 6 hours in Internet browsing with active WiFi.
