2020 is the end of the year, but I think this year has been a year in which many people are swayed by changes in the environment. This is especially true in the business scene, and working styles that do not use offices, such as remote work and telework, have quickly become widespread, and the need for “creating an environment where people can work anywhere” has greatly increased. I think there are many people who have been rushing to promote telework at their place of employment and havetily built an environment for home work.
Nowadays, the network environment is widely developed and cloud storage is widespread, and it is so difficult to work on the personal computer installed in each place such as home or coworking space while always synchronizing the data on the cloud. Absent. On the other hand, from the viewpoint of work efficiency and security, it seems that many people still want to carry their own personal computer with them. In that case, having a mobile laptop would be the best choice.
When it comes to business mobile laptops, many people think of the small size and lightness of the main unit, long-term battery operation, and sophisticated appearance. On the other hand, in terms of performance, there are many cases where the Office suite application should work for the time being, and scenes that require a high-performance machine are limited. Therefore, for business use, a company may prepare a personal computer that compromises in terms of performance.
However, if it is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), that is, a style that allows you to use your own personal computer for business purposes, there are many people who want a product that allows you to enjoy entertainment content such as videos and games. That’s it.
Under such circumstances, products compliant with the “Intel Evo Platform”, which began to appear at the end of 2020, are attracting a lot of attention as they have products that meet a wide range of needs, from business use to entertainment use and creation use. Not only is it compact and lightweight and can be driven for a long time, but it also allows you to move the Office suite as described above, and with its higher graphics drawing performance than before, you can also play popular PC game titles and edit 4K videos. This is because it has achieved enough performance to handle it.
It can be said to be a particularly attractive option for business people and creators who use their own laptops for work and private use, and for students who are looking for a first laptop that can be used for both class and entertainment.
In this article, we will introduce the charm and performance of the ASUS “ZenBook Flip S UX371EA-HL003TS” (hereinafter referred to as “ZenBook Flip S”), which is an Evo-compliant high-end 2in1.
Premium notebook “ZenBook Flip S” with attractive organic EL display
In the first place, the Intel Evo platform is a platform brand that certifies modern personal computers that meet certain functional and performance requirements established by Intel, and that personal computers that meet the conditions can claim support. A similar effort has been around for a long time and has been codenamed “Project Athena”, but changed its name with the introduction of the 11th generation Core processor (Tiger Lake) announced in September this year. , It was officially branded. Therefore, it is only recently that compatible PCs have been introduced to the market.
The feature of certification is that it covers a wide range of performance and functionality. For example, the latest 11th generation Core processor and the built-in GPU “Intel Iris Xe graphics” attached to it, memory capacity 8GB or more, 256GB or more PCIe / NVMe SSD installed, Wi-Fi 6 compatible basics In addition to the specifications, the requirements include the sound pressure level and frequency of the speaker, battery life, fast charging, quick start-up and sleep recovery. Roughly speaking, it can be said that the Evo platform is endorsed as “a personal computer with high overall performance that can be used for both business and entertainment.” By the way, the compatible PC has a brand sticker indicating that it is already compatible.
The ZenBook Flip S featured this time is equipped with a 13.3-inch organic EL display that supports touch and has a maximum resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 dots (4K), in addition to the high basic specifications. It is a product that boasts full specifications like an Evo-compatible PC, such as being able to be used in tablet style by rotating the liquid crystal part.
The design follows the conventional “Zenbook” series, and is stylish with the hairline processing that spreads concentrically on the top plate, the diamond cut on the edge part, and the solid black and red copper painting. Because of its high quality, it is easy to recommend even for business use, which is often carried and exposed to the public.
