Computex, the world’s biggest International Information Technology show has kicked off with various tech giant around the world presenting their latest innovations but no one came close to the Asus, who revealed back to back 5 laptops including a world’s slimmest laptop.
The Taiwanese tech giant is on roll this year and is up for serious rivalry with its laptop series. Let’s take a look what Asus is at:
ZenBook Flip S: The slimmest laptop title holder with 10.9mm thickness and weighs only 1.1 kilos. The flip S from Zenbook series isn’t just slim or light but also a performer. It comprises of 13.3 inch 4K UHD touchscreen panel with Asus Pen (an active stylus) support which seems to be at par with other premium laptops. The screen can be flipped 360 degrees. Inside the body lies a 7th generation Intel Core i7 7500U processor and 16 Gigabytes of RAM. Flip S comes fitted with 1TB SSD (Solid State Disk). Features that make this laptop unique are its body hinges that lift the keyboard side up when the screen gets flipped over 135 degrees, an almost bezel-less screen aka NanoEdge and a biometric scanner. The battery here lasts up to 11.5 hours, according to Asus, and charges 0-60 in only 49 minutes and that’s decent enough. The device is expected to come running with Windows 10 Pro or Home edition.
Asus Zenbook Flip S is priced at $1,099 and will start shipping to the customer from September.
Asus ZenBook Deluxe: The Deluxe bridges gap between ZenBook Pro and Flip S. Measuring just 12.9mm and weighing similar to Flip S 1.1 kilo, it may not be the slimmest laptop but is definitely one of the thinnest laptops out there, however, this didn’t stop Asus from claiming it to be the world’s slimmest 14 incher. Zenbook Deluxe packs a 14-inch 4K resolution screen with NanoEdge. Under the hood, the Deluxe runs a 7th Gen Intel Core i7-7500U processor, 16 GB LPDDR3 RAM at 2133 MHz and PCI Express 1TB solid disk. The sides of the notebook sports Thunderbolt 3 enabled 2 USB type C ports allowing data transfer rates of up to 40 Gbps. Harman Kardon inspired surround sound system, a backlit keyboard with glass cover and a compact fingerprint sensor on the mousepad. It will run either Windows 10 Pro or Home version.

This model too comes with NanoEdge, thin bezel display, four speakers by Harman Kardon, full metal unibody that is just 18.9mm thick and burdens the carrier with 1.8 kilos. The battery inside is one of the highlights which the company touts to last 14 hours. This model earlier won Computing and System category at the Computex Taipei 2017.

It’s been fitted with Intel Core i7-7700HQ 7th Gen chipset, 16 Gigs DDR4 RAM, 1TB SSD and for moderate gamers a Nvidia GeForce GTX1050 Ti graphics card. It will run Windows 10 Pro out of the box.

Inspired by company’s in-house ‘Nanoedge’ technology it boasts a 15.6 inch Full HD display.

VivoBook S can support Intel Core 7th gen processors up to Core i7, 16 Gigs of DDR4 RAM, 512 GB SSD primary storage or up to 2TB HD and a Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics. Finding a backlit keyboard is hard and Vivo S provides you that.
