Dubbed by the company as the Rising Optical Mechanical Keyboard design, the keyboard tilts up by 5-degrees for better ergonomics and improve airflow. The new laptop also features the company’s ROG Intelligent Cooling feature along with redesigned Arc Flow fans.
ASUS is making two display variants for the new Zephyrus S17, one with a 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) 120Hz refresh rate screen and another with a WQHD (2560 x 1440) 165Hz panel, enabling it to cater to the needs of gamers and content creators.
