ASUS launches ZenBook Flip 15 with NVIDIA MX150 in the Philippines



Apart from the wallet-friendly VivoBook laptops, ASUS also brought their new 2-in-1 notebook to the Philippine market and a refresh of the thinnest convertible currently available.

ZenBook Flip 15

The ZenBook Flip 15 is ASUS’ more powerful convertible. It has a 15.6-inch Full HD NanoEdge touchscreen with support for the ASUS Pen and has a 360-degree hinge. The screen-to-body ratio is at 79 percent, making it an immersive notebook to work on without the thick, boring bezels.

The new convertible doesn’t skimp on ports, making it a full-fledged multimedia laptop. It’s got a full-size HDMI, USB 3.0, and also USB-C 3.1. Windows Hello is present with a fingerprint reader onboard and has support for Cortana with voice.

Pricing starts at PhP 69,995 with a configuration of the latest 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor paired with 8GB of memory and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 or GTX 1050 discrete graphics. Storage options include a combo drive of a 128GB SSD plus 1TB HDD, or just a super-fast 512GB SSD.

ZenBook Flip S

The thinnest convertible hasn’t been dethroned, yet. ASUS doesn’t have a new design for the ZenBook Flip S, but the company has refreshed its flagship 2-in-1 with the latest specifications available. As a refresher, the notebook is just 10.9mm thin and weighs 1.1kg with its aerospace-grade aluminum body. Its 13.3-inch display, on the other hand, is toughened with Corning Gorilla Glass.

With an untouched starting price of PhP 84,995, the ZenBook Flip S gets a new processor option to an 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8550U. Memory is still at 16GB while storage is a speedy 512GB SSD. All are run by Windows 10 Home.

Honor launches Hunter V700 gaming laptop with a kickass design

Honor’s first gaming laptop



Honor’s first gaming laptop has arrived and the brand is confident it can make a mark in the market. Starting with the Hunter V700, the brand says it packs best-in-class performance, excellent heat dissipation, as well as portability.

To start off, the laptop has a very aggressive design that focuses on RGB lighting, ergonomics, and sustained performance. Honor has managed to fill a high-end configuration despite the thin chassis.

It has a 16.1-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate that’s accompanied by 4.7mm thick bezels, 100% sRGB color, and a maximum brightness of 300 nits. Unlike Apple’s laptops, Honor has managed to pack a USB-A port, HDMI, and an RG45 ethernet jack.

Honor has also included a new hinge that it likes to call Wind Valley design. According to the brand, the design facilitates up to 40 percent more volume of air for cooling.

“Traditional gaming notebooks tend to be thick and heavy to meet the high-performance and heat dissipation requirements expected in this category. Honor believes the pursuit of performance can co-exist with a lightweight and portable design,” Honor said in a statement.

The Honor Hunter V700 starts at CNY 7,499 (US$ 1,105) for the Core i5-10300H,  GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of storage.

It’s followed by a Core i7-10750H with an RTX 2060, along with the same volume of RAM and storage, costing CNY 8,499 (US$ 1,250).

Lastly, you can get a Core i7-10750H, RTX 2060, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD storage for CNY 9,999 (US$ 1,475). The sale is currently limited to China via VMall.
