ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 - a laptop dedicated to professionals and explorers.
Traveling by plane remains one of the most enjoyable moments a person can experience. The sensation of flying high above the clouds, enjoying a coffee while watching the world from above remains unique. I recommend traveling by plane in any corner of the country and abroad. Fares are now low, and the journey can take from a few minutes to a few hours without being exhausting.
My laptop and phone are not missing from my hand luggage. Technology is part of our lives, and gadgets are our extensions in everyday life. I like to capture exciting moments and wonderful places on trips. It is true that in 2020 I did not travel abroad because of the pandemic, but that did not stop me from flipping through digital memories.
ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 with 4K UHD OLED display
Looking at the holiday photos on an ASUS laptop that received passengers in tests, I noticed that they have a different color, a little more intense. The 4K UHD OLED panel on the new ZenBook Flip S UX371 is to blame.
Most laptops offer IPS Full HD screens, with a resolution of 1920 × 1080, the graphic details being limited to this resolution. The OLED panel on the ZenBook Flip S UX371 is touchscreen and has a 4K resolution (3840 x 2160).
The screen is articulated by the body of the laptop with a double hinge, which allows it to turn 360 degrees, at which point the laptop becomes a tablet with a diagonal of 13,3 inches.
ASUS has thought of everything for this mode of operation. It has mounted on / off buttons on the side and a sensor that disables the keyboard and touchpad when we put the laptop in tablet mode.
The touch screen is covered with glass and even supports a pressure-sensitive stylus. You can do a lot of things, including graphic sketches by simply sitting in the waiting room at the airport or on the plane, if you have chosen a more distant destination.
ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 is very light
ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 is very light with a weight of only 1,2 Kg. Even the profile has been thinned to 13,9 mm, just to make it easier to carry in a small bag.
The case is made of aluminum alloy with beautiful metallic finishes. Inside there is a rigid metal structure, on which the other hardware plates are mounted. In this way, the UX371 retains its robustness.
The double hinge, which ASUS calls the 360 ° ErgoLift, is smaller than previous generations, but just as sturdy. The laptop has been subjected to 20.000 closing / opening cycles, a value that most of us will not reach in a normal regime of use.
The laptop is equipped with ultra-fast ports
The laptop is equipped with ultra-fast USB-C Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports and even has an HDMI output. In other words, if you want to connect a TV or video projector to your laptop, you can do it very easily. Of course, there is also a wireless Internet connection that is provided via WiFi 6 (802.11ax) solution.
ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 is based on an 7th generation Intel Core i11 processor
ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 is based on an 7th generation Intel Core i11 processor. It has 16GB of RAM and a 3.0TB PCIe 1 SSD. The laptop will move quickly in most of the applications you will install, except for games that require a powerful graphics accelerator, but for that there is Republic of Gamers.
The internet connection has always been a problem for those who are used to traveling frequently. Some prefer to create a mobile hotspot on their phone avoiding public Wi-Fi networks, others run after the areas where the signal is stronger.
ZenBook Flip S UX371 can take full advantage of any Wi-Fi router with a built-in WiFi 6 (802.11ax) module. With this solution, it is possible to play movies at 4K resolution, provided that the data package provided by the provider allows you to do so.
Wi-Fi performance is adjusted using ASUS WiFi Master Premium technology, which includes ASUS WiFi Stabilizer and ASUS WiFi SmartConnect. These are little tricks that make the connection more stable.
ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 offers a range of 15 hours
Last but not least, a laptop must offer a great autonomy, covering the duration of a plane trip across the ocean, starting from the premise that the laptop is addressed to business people, content creators, those who explore the world for a long time and in wide.
The UX371 has a maximum theoretical range of up to 15 hours when playing FullHD movies. In other usage scenarios, the autonomy will be slightly lower or may even exceed 15 hours. But it will definitely cover an eight-hour work schedule.
Launched in Romania on December 2, ASUS ZenBook Flip S UX371 is currently available in three configurations, with rates between 6199,99 lei and 8199,99 lei.
