Not everyone is looking for a state-of-the-art laptop. Some people basically want a tablet that also features an external keyboard and don't really need much more in the way of performance. However, for those that actually do want a top-tier laptop that's not aimed at gaming, then Asus has really delivered with its latest Zenbook Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T. A laptop that's so seductive it's going to be hard to deliver an impartial review.

Sure this laptop isn't perfect, but it's damn near close to it. Featuring an OLED Full HD display, Asus delivers a screen that is not only sensitive to the touch but one that delivers a truly crisp picture quality with deep blacks, excellent saturation, and a 70% reduction in blue light emissions

As if this was not enough, Asus's latest high-end notebook also comes packing heat with a powerful processor, top-of-the-line RAM, 11 hours worth of battery life, and a lightweight design that's going to beg you to take it anywhere you go. 

Without further ado, let's dig deep to uncover everything there is to know about a laptop that has managed to accrue stellar reviews whilst still featuring a fairly competitive price point.

Design, Display, and Keyboard

ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T performance
Without a doubt, the compact design of the ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T is one of its best attributes as it weighs just 2.87 pounds while keeping an - ever so thin - profile of 0.47 inches, so you can use it in four different modes and carry it along in your backpack anywhere you go without breaking a sweat.

Like other ASUS convertibles, this model features a 360° ErgoLift hinge that will enhance your productivity as it improves the typing position of the keyboard while maintaining its internal components at a reasonable temperature.

The ZenBook Flip 13 comes with a thin-bezel 13.3-inch OLED Full HD display with excellent color accuracy (up to 100% of sRGB color gamut) and touch capabilities with the Stylus Pen included, allowing you to stream multimedia, take notes, draw and do most activities with higher precision and comfort.

Furthermore, it boasts a respectable brightness of up to 300 nits, which is perfect for indoor use, as well as wider viewing angles thanks to its IPS-Level technology. For reference, the 2020 MacBook Air had a 300 nits brightness.

However, if you prefer a convertible with even sharper picture quality, then you might want to consider the ASUS ZenBook Flip S13 UX371EA-XB76T as it features a stunning 13.3-inch 4K display with OLED and IPS technologies while also being a touchscreen.

Having said that, the display on the UX363EA-AH74T is simply gorgeous. It delivers deep blacks, unlike your standard LCD display. Features vivid colors and reduces blue light emissions by 70% compared to standard laptop panels. 

Moreover, we've got a backlit keyboard that is comfy enough to type during long sessions as it is accompanied by a multi-gesture glass touchpad with NumberPad functionality to make it easier to type numbers when needed without taking up space on the "primary keyboard" in the event that you use the numeric pad very rarely. 

The ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T features an 11th-Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor powered by 4 cores, 8 threads, and 12 MB of SmartCache memory that clocks in at a frequency that can go up to 4.70 GHz.

There's also a low-consumption 16 GB LPDDR4x RAM whose performance is good enough for demanding tasks, including coding, virtualization, and non-professional video editing, as well as most office tasks, such as text editing, video calling, checking e-mail, etc.

As for the graphics department, the Intel Iris Xe Graphics integrated GPU is limited to light gaming and 4K streaming through an external monitor since the screen doesn't support that resolution (it's a Full HD display),

Regarding the storage, it comes with a quiet and fast 1 TB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD, which features reading/writing speeds substantially faster than your standard SSD drive. 

Overall, with this combination of high-end specs, you can expect this convertible to be ready to tackle just about anything you throw at it, with the exception of graphically demanding tasks such as AAA gaming or professional-grade video editing, both of which would benefit from the laptop featuring a dedicated graphics card instead of an integrated one. 

Other than that, you can use this convertible ultrabook in just about any scenario; it's ready.

Connectivity and Extras

The ZenBook Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T comes with a single USB-A 3.2 input, two USB-C 3.2 ports with Thunderbolt 4, DisplayPort, and Power Delivery support so you can transfer data faster, connect external monitors, and charge the battery using the same port.

There's also an HDMI 1.4 output and an HD webcam with IR functions as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 wireless standards, guaranteeing way faster speed and less latency when surfing the web. 

On that note, in the event that you haven't bought a new laptop in recent years, you should know that the Wi-Fi Alliance updated the Wi-Fi names, so the previously known Wi-Fi 802.11ax corresponds to Wi-Fi 6 while the Wi-Fi 802.11ac protocol is now known as Wi-Fi 5.

Overall, while we are aware that convertibles rarely feature much in the way of connectivity and they often dismiss the ethernet port entirely, we would've liked to see an SD card reader included in here, as well as an audio jack for those that don't want to use wireless headphones. 

And if you prefer a 2-in-1 laptop with wider connectivity solutions, then you should check out the Dell Inspiron 14 5406 ‎i5406-7207GRY-PUS as it features a headphone jack, an SD card reader, and a fingerprint reader to make Windows log-in process easier.

Battery Life

Moving onto the battery life of the Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T, we've got a 67 Wh 4-cell lithium battery that offers a little more than 9 hours of HD video playback as well as 7 hours of mixed usage, as reported by several users. 

In addition to that, it's fast charging compatible, allowing you to get up to 60% of extra battery life in just 49 minutes of charge.

Overall this is the perfect combo when it comes to battery life. A notebook that delivers both in the way of a generous battery life while also offering a quick charge option so that you never run out of battery. 

The company claims you can get up to 11 hours of battery out of this convertible. We're not going to claim that's not true. However, considering the customer reviews and our own experience when it relates to laptop battery life, we always like to subtract roughly 20% of the claimed battery life so we can get a number that's far closer to the real battery life for our standard usage scenarios. 

Verdict: Should you buy it?

The ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 UX363EA-AH74T is a convertible you can't go wrong with since it boasts an uncompromised performance in most computing scenarios while providing the comfort and versatility you need in order to comfortably work however and wherever you need to. 

Amongst its best attributes, we'd like to highlight its well-built and professional design, the stunning picture quality of its OLED display, the fast and silent performance of its NVMe SSD storage, and the generous battery life.
