Asus has been known for making power-packed yet lightweight laptops. This time around, the brand has launched a convertible laptop aimed at the versatile professional, dubbed as the ZenBook Flip S. Convertible laptops bring in the best of both worlds – productivity and flexibility. Let’s have a look at what Asus has to offer with this product.
Display and Design
The Zenbook Flip S is an ultra-portable lightweight laptop and weighs in at just 1.1kg. This makes it super easy to carry around. To add to its portability, the laptop features a 13.3-inch Full HD touchscreen that features thin bezels which the company calls as NanoEdge Design.
Performance and Storage
Underneath its hood, the offering is powered by the 8th-Gen Core i7 processor made by Intel. This processor ensures that the device is capable of superb performance without reducing efficiency. For smooth multitasking, the ZenBook Flip S is equipped with 16GB LPDDR3 RAM. It also has an Intel UHD 620 GPU for aiding in gaming performance. As far as storage goes, the laptop will ship with 512GB of memory in the form of an SSD drive. This will ensure high read/write speeds and quick boot-up time.
Software and Extra Features
The major visual attraction to this laptop has to be its 360-degree hinge that allows its display to be turned around. This is when the laptop will switch to tablet mode – a feature of Windows 10. To quickly log into the laptop, you can either use the fingerprint sensor provided on the side or through Microsoft Hello – a facial recognition method. Since it has a touchscreen display, artists and creative personnel can purchase the Asus Pen to create illustrations.
Battery and Connectivity
The ZenBook Flip S draws its power from a 39Wh battery which can help the laptop last up to 11 hours on a single charge, which is pretty impressive. Realistically, however, you can expect up to 6 – 7 hours of screen-on time. To add to that, the offering also comes with fast charging technology that allows users to top-up the device up to 60% in less than an hour. The laptop is equipped with two USB Type-C ports which can be used for charging as well as connecting the device to a bigger screen.
The laptop will set you back Rs. 1,30,990. At this price point, the ZenBook Flip S is well in the premium laptop category. If you are on a budget, you can check out laptops that cost under Rs. 30,000. Stay tuned as we bring you more such news on Facebook and Twitter.
