We can say Asus really did a good job by making world’s thinnest and lightest convertible laptop. It is a complete lightweight package that Asus can offer to a consumer. But, it does come with few cons including lack of traditional connectivity and a premium price.

When you go laptop shopping, there are three criterias that most people have: looks, weight and performance. The Asus ZenBook Flip S meets all three with aplomb but isn’t easy on the pocket. Starting at Rs 1,30,000, the Asus ZenBook Flip S is targeted at the premium end of the market, and more importantly at buyers who are more style-conscious. There are a few things amiss – a Thunderbolt 3 port – but that’s being a tad unfair on a laptop that delivers what it promises. A thin, good-looking device that packs in the performance. Still, as far as convertibles go, there’s HP’s Spectre x360 which will give the ZenBook Flip S a tough run for its money. You won’t go wrong with the ZenBook Flip S though as this head turner of a device blends style and substance perfectly.

No laptop is perfect, and same goes for the ZenBook Flip S, which has its pros and cons. Asus has spent time on making the device as slim as possible, and it shows. The 360-degree hinge feels sturdy, plus the quality of the screen is also good. Asus has nailed the keyboard, and the trackpad is responsive. Windows 10 isn’t great to use in tablet mode – and frankly, Asus has little role to play in making this better anytime soon. Battery, however, is the biggest flaw of the ZenBook Flip S. This is a deal-breaker for me or anyone who’d like to buy a laptop that costs as much as the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

CommentIntel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
