Whether you’re a hybrid worker, a digital nomad, or a business traveler, you need a laptop that’s portable and powerful enough to keep you productive—and entertained—for long periods before needing a charge.
If you’re in the market for one, ASUS has a compelling offer in the ASUS Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED.
Here are 5 features of the Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED that make it a fantastic travel laptop:
1. Thin, light, and sturdy
At 1.1kg and 0.59 inches thick, the ASUS Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED is easy to carry around and pack into the tightest of backpacks or even a slim tote bag.
Worried about your laptop bumping around your bag and moving between locations? No need with this one. Its chassis is made from durable magnesium-aluminum alloy so it can take on occasional bumps and some jostling in your luggage.
The Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED features a 360° ErgoLift hinge that allows the display to be flipped depending on how you want to use the convertible: as a traditional laptop, an expansive tablet, a presentation tool (tent mode), or as a media device (stand mode). Like the chassis, the hinge is durable, having been tested for over 20,000 open/close cycles.
2. All-day battery life and fast charging tech
When you travel, you don’t always have easy access to a power socket. This is why it’s important to have a laptop that can last you a day. Thankfully, the Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED is equipped with a 67Wh lithium-polymer battery that ensures fewer trips to the power outlet.
When you do need to charge it, you don’t need to be tethered to an outlet for too long. With fast-charge support, you can get up to 60% capacity in as little as 49 minutes. What’s more, you can juice up the laptop using a USB-C Power Delivery-certified charger or any standard USB-C charger such as an airline charger, a portable charger, or a power bank.
3. Gorgeous OLED screen and Dolby Atmos-tuned speakers
One of the main selling points of this laptop is its OLED display. And boy, do you get a nice 13.3-inch 2.8K OLED panel with images that are sharp and colors that pop.
If you’re working with graphics, photos, and videos, you’ll surely appreciate this screen. And during your downtime, you’d also be able to enjoy watching your favorite shows on this display. To complete your audio-visual experience, ASUS has fitted a Dolby Atmos stereo speaker on the Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED.
4. Powerful hardware
Mobile workers need a laptop that works as hard as they do. This Zenbook is powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 P-series processor, supports up to 16GB of onboard LPDDR5 memory, and comes with a generous 1TB SSD for all your storage needs. All of that means this laptop is ready to take on anything you throw at it.
For connectivity, the Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED offers Thunderbolt 4, an audio combo jack, and a microSD card reader. Need to insert a USB-A device? A USB-C to USB-A adapter cable is included in the box.
5. Good keyboard and NumberPad 2.0
To help boost your productivity even while on the go, ASUS equipped this convertible with a 19mm pitch keyboard. It’s also backlit, by the way, so you can type away even in dark environments—such as when you’re on a plane and the cabin lights are dimmed.
Should you need to crunch numbers, this Zenbook comes with ASUS NumberPad 2.0, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad integrated in the touchpad. You can turn it on and off with a single touch.
Choosing a laptop for travel or for lugging around from one coffee shop to another is a lot different than buying one for general use (read: usually bound to a desk). If you’re looking for one that’s ultraportable, light, and powerful—and comes with an extremely good battery life—you definitely should take a good look at the ASUS Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED.
The ASUS Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED retails at P109,995 and is available at ASUS Concept Stores and Authorized Reseller Stores nationwide.
