Anyone who does a lot of writing on laptop keyboards knows that they aren't very finger- or wrist-friendly, but the Asus ZenBook S should make the typing experience a little more comfortable. The new laptop features a unique hinge design that makes its keyboard far more ergonomic than the average device.

Rather than opening at the very edge of the base such that the screen and keyboard form a 90-degree angle, as is the case with virtually every other laptop, the Asus ZenBook S's hinge is pushed slightly deeper into the screen. This causes the keyboard to be propped up at a 5.5-degree angle when the laptop is open and laid on a flat surface, and that raised keyboard creates a more ergonomic typing surface for consumers.
