ASUS certainly is no slouch when it comes to innovation. Just today at ASUS’ Edge of Beyond event at Computex Taiwan 2017, Jonney Shih, announced slew of new laptop that certainly piqued everyone’s interest. One of the highlights – and in fact the first among the new products unveiled – is the new ASUS Zenbook Flip S (UX370).

The flippable display is supported with ASUS very own Ergolift hinge, which was initially made available on ASUS Q325A.
