During Computex 2018, Asus has announced an all-new type of Ultrabook laptop known as the Asus ZenBook S, or UX391. The laptop looks like a Surface Pro at first glance, thanks to a unique hinge design, but isn’t like that Windows 10 tablet at all. That interesting hinge is known as the ‘ErgoLift Hinge,’ and it raises the angle of the laptop base and therefore the keyboard when opening the laptop. This is because the hinge is positioned a bit above the edge of the laptop lid. The ErgoLift Hinge gives the keyboard an angle of 5.5-degrees, which Asus claims to have found during research promotes comfortable typing for longer periods of time. This solution also allows heat that the 0.51-inch thin laptop generates to be dissipated through the bottom of the base while (theoretically) escaping before it warms up your legs. Better yet, Asus promises that this angle also allows the bottom-firing speakers on the laptop to shine far better than competing, normal laptops. Plus, a smart amplifier adjusts the max volume, accounting for the acoustics created by the angle, to deliver the best battery life and quality. Asus also announced the ZenBook Pro 2018 series which introduces the ScreenPad at Computex.
