ASUS Flip recommendation for Affinity Suite

Recommended Posts

I am using the Affinity Apps on my 2014 Macbook Pro Retina notebook which I bought with the most resources available at the time. Now I'm looking for anther notebook specifically for the Affinity Suite. If someone has an ASUS Flip they like I would welcome their comments. My Macbook Pro is very fas and I have Photoshop CS6 on it and I haven't used it since I started using Affinity. I will be using the new notebook for travel and keep the Mac at home for personal files. 

Thanks,

Curt

The ASUS Flip is a Chromebook, and runs Chrome OS. That wouldn't let you run the Affinity applications.

No, this is the model I'm looking at: ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 Ultra Slim Convertible Laptop, 14” Full HD WideView, 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8565U, 16GB RAM, 512GB PCIe SSD, GeForce MX150, Windows 10. 

I should have been more specific as to the model in the ASUS line I'm looking at.

Hi CurtJ,

This should be more than enough to run Affinity.

Thanks

Thanks. Yes, I agree with Callum that that model should work. However, you may not be happy with it unless you have a keyboard attached. The Affinity applications are not really optimized for a touchscreen on Windows.

Thanks Walt, that's something I wasn't aware of.

Fixx, I knew I would need a windows version, no problem there, thanks. 

Callum, Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher perform so well that I'm getting a new notebook to travel with, I will be getting a new iPad this coming year also. My iPad Air doesn't support Affintiy and since Affintiy mobile is made for the iPad, it's a great movation. Thanks for the valuable information.
