At its pre-Computex show, Asus has revealed a range of laptops in its ZenBook series, leading with the ZenBook Flip S, which the company says that is the “thinnest 2-in-1 convertible laptop in the world”. The ZenBook Flip S is the latest to snatch the trophy as vendors wage an eternal battle to shave down their portable PCs.

The 13.3-inch 4K UHD screen easily folds around 360 degree for tablet use, surrounded by a 6.11mm bezel on the vertical sides, supports active stylus input, too. The Pen will recognize around 1,024 levels of force, and it worked with flexibility. The company says that the new 360-degree ErgoLift hinge has a dual-action mechanism that can lift and tilt the keyboard into the typing position even when the display is opened beyond 135 degrees.
Under the hood, the ZenBook Flip S is uses up to 7th-generation Intel Core i7-7500U processor and offers up to 1TB PCIe SSD. The convertible laptop also features the company’s new cooling system that uses a liquid-crystal-polymer fan. It sports a 4K UHD multi-touch NanoEdge display and supports an active stylus. The Asus ZenBook Flip S also comes with a fingerprint sensor which provides instant one-touch login via Windows Hello in either laptop or tablet mode.
