ASUS Unveils New Laptops With Intel’s 11th Gen Processors
ASUS has unveiled several new laptops equipped with Intel’s new 11th gen processors with Iris Xe integrated graphics, along with its first Intel Evo laptop.
The 11th gen Intel processor laptops include the ZenBook Flip S (UX371), ZenBook S (UX393), ZenBook 14 (UX435EA/EG), ZenBook 14 Ultralight, ZenBook Pro 15 (UX535), ExpertBook (B9 B9400), and more.

The ZenBook Flip S, for instance, is touted to be the “world’s thinnest OLED convertible laptop”, while the ZenBook Pro 15 is said to be the smallest 15-inch laptop with a 4K OLED screen in the world.
