ZENBOOK™ ultraportables combine stunning slimline designs with impressive
specifications and a range of screen sizes that include optional multi-touch
ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, today announced an expanded range of sleek and stylish ZENBOOK™ ultraportables that cater for every mobile need. Inspired by the Zen philosophy of achieving balance through beauty and strength, ZENBOOK™ has an award-winning ultra-slim design with a beautiful, precision-engineered, spun-metal finish. ZENBOOK™ also features impressive specifications that include powerful quad-core processors, fast solid-state storage and capacitive multi-touch displays in a range of sizes.
Powerful performance in a range of sizes
ASUS ZENBOOK™ features a choice of 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors for outstanding multi-tasking performance, up to 10GB memory and powerful NVIDIA® GT graphics. Flexible storage options are also available, including high-capacity hard drives, hybrid drives with solid-state cache for accelerated performance and blazingly fast SSD drives for near-instant app launch times.
The expanded ZENBOOK™ range features models with 11.6”, 13.3”, 14”, and 15.6” Full HD displays that are ideal for working with multiple windows side-by-side and enjoying high-definition movies in crisp detail. IPS display technology is standard across the range too, giving a bright, vibrant image with accurate colours and 178° wide viewing angle. Capacitive multi-touch displays are also available on the ZENBOOK™ U500VZ and UX31A for intuitive fingertip control with Windows 8, and a quick and easy way to work with large multimedia libraries.
Fully featured for flexible use
Backlit keyboards that automatically respond to ambient light levels and large multi-touch touchpads make ZENBOOK™ the perfect productivity tool. Dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 offer high-performance wireless connectivity, while USB 3.0 ports offer full support for the latest high-speed external storage devices and rapid mobile-device recharging. ASUS Super Hybrid II technology also gives longer battery life too, and up to two weeks’ standby time with two-second resume.
ZENBOOK™ is also ideally suited to entertainment. The ZENBOOK™ U500VZ, UX32VD, UX42VS and UX52VS all feature NVIDIA® GT mobile graphics for outstanding visual performance, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, gives superlative sound quality across the entire range. An external subwoofer with the ZENBOOK™ U500VZ, plus internal optical drives on the ZENBOOK™ UX42VS and UX52VS, offer a rich home entertainment experience, too.
Finely crafted design
The beautiful slender profile of ZENBOOK™ is the result of intense research and development into sophisticated engineering techniques inspired by those used to create high-precision mechanical timepieces. The unique ‘spun-metal’ finish of the ZENBOOK™ lid alone requires a 32-step manufacturing process, and the finely crafted aluminium case features a combination of gentle curves and a sleek contour that narrows to a mere 3mm. With its stunning design and incredible performance, ZENBOOK™ is a perfectly balanced ultraportable.
