ASUS​ ​announces​ the ​world’s thinnest convertible laptop

ASUS recently announced the availability of the ZenBook Flip S UX370, the world’s thinnest convertible laptop.

Measuring a mere 10.9mm thin and weighing just 1.1 kg, the groundbreaking ZenBook Flip S combines elegant sophistication with the convenience and versatility of a 360° flippable display, allowing it to be used as a powerful laptop, a handy tablet, or anything in between. 

The ZenBook Flip S aims to continue the ZenBook heritage, embracing the classic qualities associated with this series of thin and light premium laptops, and incorporating innovative space- and weight-saving features. 

ZenBook Flip S features premium aerospace-grade aluminium alloy, an incredibly compact ErgoLift hinge, and an ultrathin vapour-chamber cooling system. 

The ZenBook Flip S is powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to a 512GB SSD and dual USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C ports. 

This makes the device a good choice for designers, creative office workers, or anyone who needs a sophisticated laptop that offers long battery life and versatility.

Bigger displays make multitasking easier and entertainment more immersive, which is why the ZenBook Flip S features a 13.3” NanoEdge multitouch display with an ultrathin 6.11mm physical bezel that gives it an 80% screen-to-body ratio. 

With a resolution of 1920x1080, this display features 178-degree wide-view technology that aims to ensure image clarity at almost any viewing angle. 

It also features a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass for durability. 

The NanoEdge display uses ASUS TruVivid direct-bonding technology that improves brightness and reduces reflections by up to 67%, for clearer outdoor viewing. 

The touchscreen display also supports an active stylus, such as the ASUS Pen for interactivity and visual designing.

the ZenBook Flip S also includes a fingerprint sensor with supposed super-quick recognition to allow users to easily access the device.

The ZenBook Flip S supports all the latest features in Windows 10, to give users a premium Windows experience.

These features include; Cortana, Windows Hello for easy and secure biometric login, Windows Ink for drawing and Modern Standby for near-instant resume from sleep mode.

The ZenBook Flip S UX370 is available now from the ASUS Shop and will be available from JB HiFi later in January 2018.
