Asus wowed at its Computex press conference with the ZenBook Flip S, the thinnest convertible ever.

Inside (for what little inside there is), you'll find a seventh-generation Intel processor, 1TB SSD and 16GB RAM. Other extras include Harmon Kardon audio.

Here it is in tablet mode, if you really want that 13.3-inch 4K display to pop.

It tips the scales at 1.1kg (2.4 pounds) and measures in at under 11mm (0.43 inches) thick. That, Asus chairman Jonney Shih was quick to say, puts it at 55 percent thinner than the MacBook Air.

The tablet also pairs with the Asus pen if you're feeling creative (or want to avoid smudges). It also comes with full support for Windows 10 features like Windows Ink.

The 360-degree hinges are comfortably stiff, letting you set your screen to pretty much whatever angle you desire.

Yes, it's really that thin. The ZenBook Flip S starts at $1,099 (converting to around AU$1,480 or £850).
