Flip S gives solid but unobtrusive results in the benchmark. As we’ve seen elsewhere, the jump to silicon provides the 11th gen. Even more worrisome is that it lags behind the 11th generation Acer Swift 5 with i5 power. This most strongly points to the fact that the problem here isn’t in the internal components, but the laptop case design and cooling solution results in a throttle that is suppressing the CPU.
The 11th Generation Intel Chip is paired with a slim design, modern port selection (except for the amazing lack of a 3.5 mm headphone jack), and a 13.3 inch 4K OLED touchscreen-all in a 2in1 design, using FlipS. As you can. It can be used as a regular laptop or a powerful Windows tablet.
Obviously, many don’t justify spending £ 1,799 / $ 1,549, but if you can afford it, most premium 2-in-1s so far.
The ZenBook Flip S is a compact laptop with a compact display. In this case, it’s a 13.3-inch display in 16: 9 format. Unfortunately, Asus hasn’t followed Huawei, Dell, etc. yet and is choosing a larger aspect ratio of 16:10 or 3: 2. This is much more convenient, especially for productivity, but it’s not a big complaint.
The keys have a little extra space, but they are still responsive and certainly comfortable to type. It doesn’t feel as luxurious as the best laptop keyboards.
If the keyboard is good enough, the trackpad will blow the keyboard out of the water. This glass touchpad is smooth, responsive, spacious, and has a wide range of designs that provide ample space for optimal use and operation of the chassis.
The webcam works with Windows Hello to unlock your laptop. This is convenient because there is no fingerprint scanner. Therefore, this is the only biometric option.
Asus adjusts the aesthetics of premium notebooks into one, and the ZenBook Flip S fits perfectly.
