Without doubt, the ASUS ZenBook Flip S is for you if you love classy devices. It sports a stylish, pleasantly slim body. Its thickness is just 10.9 mm and it weighs only 1.1 kg. The use of aerospace grade aluminium for the chassis makes it strong enough to withstand rugged handling.
ASUS fits this hybrid with a 360-degree Ergo Lift hinge that lets you flip the display all the way round. This has a dual-action mechanism that automatically adjusts the keyboard for comfortable typing once you open the display beyond 135 degrees. Talking about keyboard, the ASUS ZenBook Flip S has LED backlighting.
The ASUS ZenBook Flip S comes with a 13.3-inch display. This might make it more appealing than the 12-inch Apple MacBook, which looks to be a rival. But you may consider it a tad disappointing to learn the screen resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Images should still come out in great colours, though. If you somehow find the resolution inadequate, you can get a unit boasting 4K resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels.
