Asus’ Computex Taipei 2017 press conference just ended and there, Asus revealed some new laptops.

The Zenbook Flip S

Claiming to be the world’s thinnest convertible, at 10.9mm thick, it’s 20% slimmer than the MacBook. It weighs 1.1kg and it has a battery that offers 11.5 hours of life in conjunction with its onboard Core processor. Asus did not specify which chip the Flip S has inside, however. The device features just a single USB-C port and its 13.3-inch 4K screen folds 360-degrees for tablet use. The price for this Flip S starts at $1,099.

The Zenbook 3 Deluxe

The Zenbook 3 was called the world’s most prestigious laptops last year by Asus. The company uses the same tagline for its new ZenBook 3 Deluxe. This new device is bigger than the one from last year, and Asus calls it the world’s thinnest 14-inch laptop at 12.9mm thick. It features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, an unspecified Core i7 processor, and a 1080p display. It starts at $1,199.

The Zenbook Pro

The latest Zenbook Pro looks like a pretty solid device and features a Nvidia GTX 1050Ti GPU, a 15.6-inch 4K display, and an H-series Core i7 CPU. The chassis is 18.9mm thick. The company claims that its battery lasts up to 14 hours with a price starting at $1,299.

The Vivobook S

Asus said that after this device, mainstream laptops would never be the same again. The laptop is 17.9mm thick and features an aluminum case that is quite similar to the one of the MacBook Pro. It has a Core i7 processor and a Nvidia GTZ 940MX GPU. The screen is 15-inch and its price starts at $499.

The Vivobook Pro

This new Vivobook Pro is the company’s mid-range offering and comes with a 15.6-inch 4K display, a Core i7 processor, and a GTX 1050 CPU. Its price starts at $799 and it will begin shipping this summer.
