[Computex 2017] Convertibles, hybrids, and 2-in-1 laptops are a pretty common sight these days, but given that they need to keep a keyboard and a touchscreen display also means that they can get pretty thick/bulky and heavy, but it seems that the folks at ASUS might have an answer to your problems in the form of the ZenBook Flip S.
Unveiled at Computex 2017, ASUS boasted that they were the first with the Ultrabook, the first with the 2-in-1, and now they are claiming to have created the world’s thinnest convertible laptop to date. They are boasting how it is 20% slimmer than a MacBook, 55% thinner than a MacBook Air, and only weighs 1.1kg.
The company is also touting a new compact and more durable 360-degree hinge made from steel alloy. As for the laptop’s specs, we’re looking at a 13.3-inch NanoEdge 4K UHD display with a 6.11mm thin bezel, and an 80% screen to body ratio with a fingerprint sensor placed at the side. We’re also looking at specs like an Intel Core i7 CPU clocked at 3.5GHz, up to 1TB of SSD storage, and up to 16GB of RAM.
The laptop will also come with Harman-Kardon certified audio, speakers that are 3x louder, and enhanced low-frequency audio for better bass. It also boasts 11.5 hours of battery life, and a battery that can charge from 0 to 60% in 49 minutes. The ZenBook Flip S will also come accompanied by the ASUS Pen accessory with 1,024 pressure levels. The laptop is priced at $1,099.
