Best of ASUS at IFA 2017
ASUS was at the IFA 2017 conference in full force, with a range of incredible new products and experiences. Come take a look at what ASUS had to offer at The Edge of Beyond at IFA 2017.
ASUS Windows Mixed Reality Headset
ASUS is breaking boundaries with a new Mixed Reality Headset. Thanks to a collaboration with Microsoft, it’s possible to experience both real-world and virtual experiences in the same headset. Right away, you’ll notice the sharp design. It’s made of hundreds of 3D polygons in a beautiful two-tone effect. It’s built for comfort with a light 400 g weight and premium antibacterial cushioning. It comes with controllers that have 32 LED lights each for motion tracking, and no need for external sensors. Combined with plug-and-play software, you’re looking at a bare minimum amount of set-up time. After that, you’re ready to enjoy games, movies, the web, and lots more at a level of immersion you’ve never experienced before.
ZenBook Flip 14
The ZenBook Flip 14 (UX461) is the next generation of slim, convertible laptops. It’s the thinnest 2-in-1 laptop with discrete graphics in the world, which means you get all of the versatility of a tablet, while still being able to do serious video processing and gaming. The 8th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor is paired with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, a 512 GB SSD, and 16 GB of RAM to provide all of the power you need to get things done. In addition to the 360-degree reversible hinge, the ZenBook Flip 14 enjoys a super-slim 7.15 mm bezel, a 13.9 mm profile, ASUS Pen support for handwriting, and a generous 13 hours of battery life. All of that combined makes the ZenBook Flip 14 a perfect companion for life on the move.
ZenBook Flip 15
The ZenBook Flip 15 (UX561) takes a lot of the great features of the UX461 and kicks it up a notch for a 15.6-inch screen. With more room at its disposal, the ZenBook Flip 15 includes gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 graphics, alongside the same 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM. This is without a doubt the most powerful ZenBook Flip to date. Not only is the display bigger, but it also tops out with 4K resolution. Storage is not a problem thanks to a 2 TB hard drive working in concert with a 512 GB SSD. If you need more room, the USB-C port includes Thunderbolt 3 technology for speed file transfers. This 2-in-1 PC is the perfect choice for creative professionals who need versatility and power every day.
ZenBook Flip S
The ZenBook Flip S (UX370) is a light, flexible 2-in-1 PC that excels in mobility. It’s the world’s thinnest and one of the lightest convertible laptops out there, at only 10.9 mm thin and 1.1 kg light. Though it was announced back at Computex, the ZenBook Flip S will be refreshed with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, and have up to a 1 TB PCIe SSD. A 0.3 mm liquid crystal polymer fan impeller keeps it all running smoothly and stably. The view is absolutely amazing thanks to the 4K display and slim NanoEdge bezels. Touch and ASUS Pen support make it well-suited for natural input in any of its four orientations. The 360-degree ErgoLift hinge gently lifts the ZenBook Flip S when in laptop mode, providing a comfortable angle for typing. A fingerprint sensor ties in with Windows Hello for quick, secure access. If you’re in the market for something that’s a breeze to take with you and looks great, you’ll want to check out the ZenBook Flip S.
VivoBook Flip 14
The VivoBook Flip 14 (TP401) perfect for those looking for a 2-in-1 PC on a budget. It affords all of the conveniences of a high-grade laptop – vibrant display, full-sized plugs, touch and stylus input – but in a convertible form factor. A unique fanless design lets the VivoBook Flip 14 operate at full capacity while keeping noise to a minimum. The overall design is especially impressive since it manages to fit a 14-inch full HD display into the body of a 13-inch laptop. With a battery-efficient Intel Core i7 processor, the VivoBook Flip 14 can last a full, busy day on a single charge. Thanks to ASUS Battery Health Charging Technology, you can even prolong the overall life of the battery by keeping the charge between 60% and 80%.
