ASUS ZenBook Flip S is one of the world’s thinnest and lightest convertible laptops. It is extremely elegant with a 360°-flippable display and brilliant loudspeakers.
Laptop It is effortlessly portable with all the power you need
To achieve amazing lightness without compromising structural strength, ZenBook Flip S is precision-crafted from 6013 aluminum alloy, a premium material commonly specified for automotive and aerospace applications. To achieve its up to 11-hour autonomy, ASUA designed a 39Wh lithium-polymer battery for the ZenBook Flip S and added fast-charge technology that facilitates charges of up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes. The ultra-thin profile meant ASUS had to invent the ErgoLift hinge — the world’s most compact flippable hinge — to preserve its sleek lines.
To accommodate the full-size keyboard, ASUS had to create an ultra-slim surround. ZenBook Flip S includes an accurate fingerprint sensor with super-quick recognition. The unique Zen-inspired spun-metal finish is now even more beautiful, the result of an enhanced 40-step sanding and polishing process. Featuring a precision-engineered multi-gear metal mechanism, the new 360° ErgoLift hinge on ZenBook Flip S has a silky-smooth, stepless action, and it holds the display securely at any angle.
This innovative hinge has a dual-action mechanism that lifts and tilts the keyboard into the perfect typing position when the display is opened beyond 135°. The ErgoLift hinge is by more than 20,000 open/close cycles. The NanoEdge multitouch display offers Full FHD resolution of 1920x1080. ASUS ZenBook Flip S features Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 RAM, an ultra-fast up to 1TB PCIe Gen 3 SSD, and a USB-C port. And ASUS and Harman Kardon joined forces to produce the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster audio technology. ■
