Wrapping up the ASUS ZenBook Flip S review
ASUS has made a lot of amazing laptops and the ZenBook Flip S is definitely an interesting one. ASUS crafted the ZenBook Flip S to be extremely thin while focusing on the ASUS Pen. For this use case, they’ve done extremely well as the ZenBook Flip S is powerful yet speedy. With a gorgeous screen and a lightweight body, the ZenBook Flip S is a great choice for those who seek a laptop to draw with.
Though, when it comes to the keyboard, I still find it tiring. The MacBook Air’s keyboard is good, though a little thicker than what the ZenBook Flip S is currently using. Plus, the ASUS ZenBook Flip S’s arrow keys are just terrible – especially the down arrow key.
For the price of RM6,699, it’s indeed a laptop that targets a niche market – but out of reach for most consumers. I doubt that the enterprise of SMBs would ever consider getting this laptop, too. Yet many in many consumer’s minds, they’ll be thinking something along the lines of “if I’m paying RM6.7k for a laptop, might as well get a MacBook”.
The bottom line is this – the ASUS ZenBook Flip S sure has a lot of bells and whistles built-in – but will you actually use it? Will you actually pay for them? That’s the question.
- ASUS Pen is surprisingly good
- Great touch-screen
- Narrow bezels with a bright display
- Thin convertible form factor
- Very costly
- Arrow keys are mushed too closely
