Asus ZenBook Flip S that was launched on Monday, has a 13.3-inch 4K touchscreen display that flips around. The ZenBook Flip S is a convertible that features four modes: Laptop, Tent, Presentation and Tablet, and weighs in at just 1.1 kilograms.
ZenBook Flip S paired to the processor is either 8GB or 16GB of 2133MHz memory, and storage duties are handled by 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of solid state storage, though only the top-end 1TB option leverages NVMe – the smaller drives use the slower SATA interface.
The screens, which support touch, are protected by a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass and feature thin, 6.11mm bezels for a sleek look. And the entire screen assembly is attached to the body of the device with what Asus is calling ErgoLift hinges that not only allows the screen to flip all the way around into tablet mode, but lifts and tilts-out the keyboard when opened past 135 degrees.
Asus ZenBook Flip S also has dual USB 3.1 ports, a full-sized backlit keyboard, a glass-covered touchpad, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a webcam, a Cortana-compatible microphone array, and Harmon Kardon-tuned 2-speaker audio. Wireless connectivity includes 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1.
Asus claims the ZenBook Flip S will offer up to 11.5 hours battery life with its 39Wh 2-cell lithium-polymer battery and that its battery will quick-charge to 60% of its capacity in only 49 minutes.
Price of the slimmest and convertible laptop of today is said to be $1,099, which roughly converts to £855 or AU$1,480.
