It’s Black Friday and if you’re in the market for a shiny new Windows 10 laptop, this is the deal you want!
Amazon has knocked £200 off an excellent laptop, bringing the Asus ZenBook Flip UX360UA down from £800 to £600.
It’s a tempting 2-in-1 machine that has a 360-degree hinge, meaning it can be used as either a tablet or a laptop, as well as being able to morph into ‘Tent’ mode.
This particular specimen packs an Intel Core i5-6200U processor, a 128GB hard drive, and a lovely 3,200 x 1,800 pixel screen – combine the specs and the build quality and you realise this is a bona fide “banger of a deal,” to quote our Computing Editor Michael Passingham.
We reviewed the UX360CA version of this laptop and gave it a healthy 8/10 score. This model features a different spec, but that’s a good thing – it comes with a more powerful Core i5 processor, so performance will actually be better than the variant we got our hands on.
Here’s why you might want to consider buying this laptop:
“It’s great to see a notebook that offers more than just a lower price. The Zenbook Flip is no doubt a luxury product, with its ultra-thin design, luxury feel and solid performance. Even if you don’t need the touchscreen, it’s a product that’s a worthy competitor to the Apple MacBook.”
This is a really solid deal, especially if you’re after a 2-in-1 machine. You can get laptops cheaper, of course, but if you want something that can swivel on a 360-degree hinge, this is the one you want to consider.
