ASUS unveils new laptop lineup with 11th Gen Intel Core Processors and debuts first portable PC verified as an Intel Evo platform design

ASUS introduced a lineup of new and upgraded PCs at its “Built for Brilliance” virtual launch event, including laptops featuring the power of 11th Gen Intel Core Processors (the ZenBook Flip 13, ZenBook S and ZenBook 14) and the first ASUS laptop verified as an Intel Evo platform laptop design: the ZenBook Flip S [1].

In addition to the latest processors, verified laptops feature Intel Iris Xe graphics, support for Intel Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4. The ZenBook Flip S has been co-engineered with Intel to meet the specifications and key experience indicators of this program – which include premium performance and responsiveness, efficient battery usage and eye-catching visuals.

The ultra-compact ZenBook Flip S measures just 0.55 inches thin and weighs 2.10 pounds. The ultra-vivid 4K UHD OLED NanoEdge PANTONE Validated color-accurate touchscreen supports the new ASUS Pen active stylus with 4096 pressure levels. It has up to 16 GB RAM and up to a 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD.

Also as thin and weighing just under three pounds, the compact ZenBook Flip 13 has a precision-engineered 360-degree ErgoLift hinge that allows versatile usage modes: laptop, tablet, tent, stand, or anything in between. It also automatically lifts and tilts the new edge-to-edge keyboard for comfortable typing and improved system cooling.

With a high-capacity 67 Wh battery that can deliver up to 14 hours of operation on a single charge [2], it also supports fast charging with the supplied 65-watt charger, and with ASUS USB-C Easy Charge, users can take advantage of a wide range of standard USB-C or USB-C Power Delivery (PD) chargers.

Advanced video conferencing solutions include AI noise-canceling audio for crystal-clear sound and ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology for stable network connections. An environmentally friendly accessory box can double as a laptop stand. At 1.15 pounds, it’s built for travel and constructed with magnesium-lithium alloy and extra structural rigidity to meet ultra-demanding US MIL-STD 810H US military standards. Enterprise-grade security ensures confidential data is kept safe.

Also for work, ZenBook Pro 15 is the latest model in the ZenBook Pro series of ultraportable creative laptops. Casual creators can work on their projects anywhere, thanks to a compact design enabled by the slim bezels on the bright and clear NanoEdge 4K UHD OLED touchscreen. A wide 100% DCI-P3 color gamut ensures vivid hues, while the 88% screen-to-body ratio delivers expansive visuals. Users will also find the latest ASUS ScreenPad, a 5.65-inch secondary color touchscreen built into the glass-covered touchpad.

The ASUS ScreenXpert 2.0 user interface on ASUS ScreenPad provides enhanced productivity and capabilities with an intuitive design, smoother processing between screens, personalized multitasking workflows and compatibility with multiple ASUS utility apps.

This 15.6-inch laptop is powered by 10th Generation Intel Core i7 and i5 H-series processors, 16 GB of RAM and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti discrete graphics, as well as up to a 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SDD for ultrafast storage.

There is also an IR camera for hands-free face login with Windows Hello.
