ASUS didn’t hide the fact that it is launching a number of new devices at Computex 2017 and these three new ZenBook laptops are just several of them that are making their debut at Taipei. First in the list the ZenBook Flip S which the company has claimed as the thinnest convertible in the world.
This is due to its 10.9mm thickness and of course, the new convertible laptop is also quite light at 1.1kg. ZenBook Flip S also features 360-degrees ErgoLift hinge that apparently would lifts and tilts its keyboard when the laptop’s display is positioned at more than 135-degrees.

Comes complete with a fingerprint reader on its side, ASUS claimed that ZenBook Flip S has a battery life of up to 11.5 hours and its battery can be charged to 60% in just 49 minutes.
