Asus rocked the first day of the 2017 Computex with its new line-up of laptops highlighted by what is described as the "world's thinnest 2-in-1 convertible" - the Asus ZenBook Flip S UX370. This early, the highly portable ZenBook Flip S is being groomed as a MacBook competitor.

The body Asus ZenBook Flip S is made of premium aerospace-grade aluminum with steel alloy hinges. The said hinges are designed in a way that allows them to measure 3.9 mm thick while capable of opening and closing for 20,000 times at least. The world's thinnest convertible laptop is only 10.9mm thin and weighs 1.1 kg which is far more portable than the most portable MacBook. Asus also utilized a vapor chamber cooling system that's thin enough to fit in its body.

The Asus ZenBook Flip S comes with a 13.3-inch nano edge 4K UHD or a 1080p touchscreen display. Its 6.11mm bezels allow the device to have a bigger display at its size. An active stylus with 1,024 levels of pressure will come with each unit of Flip S.

Tom's Guide's Laptop Mag reported that the premium version of the Asus ZenBook Flip S is powered by a 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-7500U processor. It also sports a couple of USB-Type C ports while an adapter with another USB-C, a USB 3.0 and HDMI ports is rumored to be included in the box.

Tech Radar mentioned the other laptops in the new Asus line-up. It includes the ZenBook 3 Deluxe which has been dubbed the most prestigious laptop in the world. The other one is the ZenBook Pro which is a direct competitor of Apple's MacBook Pro.

Despite being the world's thinnest convertible laptop, the Asus ZenBook Flip S boasts a battery life of 11.5 hours. The 39.5 Whr battery can juice up from 0 to 60 percent in just 49 minutes of charging.

The Asus ZenBook Flip S will sell for $1,099 and will be available in gold, royal blue, and gunmetal gray. Its keyboard will also be the same color as the body.
