WE MIGHT be making a gradual shift to working from the office and business meetings in the boardroom. But our expectations from our primary work devices haven’t changed. Whether you’re looking for a slinky notebook that slips into those slim portfolios or a laptop that can morph into a gaming device by night, we’ve rounded up some of the best laptops in the market you can check out
POSITIONED as a device that can find the balance between work and play, the ZenBook Flip S arrives at a time when we use our laptops for a versatile set of tasks. The Flip S can swing from laptop to tab effortlessly thanks to ASUS’ trademark 360° ErgoLift hinge. There’s also tent mode that allows you to use this as a binge-watch screen. If you like to flaunt your device, you won’t be disappointed. This laptop will get you all the attention you seek. It’s not just compact (just 1.2kg) but looks ultra-premium thanks to ASUS’ refined Jade Black finish.
You’re bound to gravitate towards the vibrant 4K UHD NanoEdge OLED HDR display. The bezels on the 13.3-inch display (3840x2160 pixels) are ultra-slim. The laptop is kitted with Harmon Kardon certified dual speakers for immersive sound. The hardware spec sheet is impressive. Its propelled by the latest 11th Gen Intel Core Tiger Lake processors — 2.80 GHz quad-core with Turbo Boost (up to 4.70 GHz) and 12 MB cache. There’s 16GB of RAM and 1TB of onboard storage. There’s a wide range of ports — a full-size HDMI port, two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports (you can power this device with a USB-C charger), and a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port. You also get a capable Stylus and the NumberPad, a touchpad, with an integrated numeric keypad that are part of the package.
