The ZenBook Flip UX360 starts at $699.

Slim hybrid PCs that can do double duty as both a laptop and tablet usually carry premium prices, especially ones that are thinner than a MacBook Air and use Intel's high-end Core m-series processors.

Asus has a new 13-inch model that manages to be very thin, use an Intel Core M processor and cost just $699 in the US (which works out to £538 or AU$933).

The newly unveiled ZenBook Flip UX360CA is 13.9mm thick and weighs 2.9 pounds. Unlike many other slim laptops and hybrids, it has a fanless design, which can mean less system noise and better battery life.

Just like the pricier Lenovo Yoga, the ZenBook features a 360-degree hinge that folds back all the way to transform the clamshell laptop shape into a tablet. The hinge can also stop along the way, allowing the device to stand in a table tent shape, allowing the 13.3-inch 1,920x1,080 display to take center stage while the keyboard is hidden from view.

The ZenBook Flip UX360CA is available starting Wednesday with either 258GB or 512GB of storage. You can read more about the latest super-slim laptops and hybrids here.
