The world's most compact 13” laptop with NumberPad*
Creativity. Style. Innovation. These are the qualities that define the elegant new ZenBook 13. It's one of the world's smallest 13-inch laptops, and features the breathtaking frameless NanoEdge display and the exclusive NumberPad to give you the freedom to discover your creative power.
The most compact design ever
ZenBook 13 heralds a new era of ultraportable design, with an ultracompact, ultralight chassis.

Designed to give you more screen area in less physical space, the NanoEdge design has slimmer bezels on all four sides to make any visuals more immersive, with less distraction for your eyes. It also features wide-view technology for clear images even when viewed from extreme angles. ZenBook 13 has a crisp, clear, high-resolution display that makes any visuals look their best, with wide viewing angles and vivid, accurate colors.
Designed with you in mind
With any ZenBook, your comfort is one of our top priorities. ZenBook 13 goes the extra mile with its exclusive ErgoLift hinge, an engineering masterpiece designed to automatically tilt the keyboard to the most comfortable typing position. But that's not all: the carefully calculated tilt improves cooling and audio performance, too.

None of the traditional ZenBook style has been lost, though: there's the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid and a choice of prestigious Royal Blue or sophisticated Icicle Silver finishes, both newly enhanced with a contrasting Rose Gold trim panel above the keyboard for an extra touch of luxury. The elegant Royal Blue color is inspired by the awesome beauty of a golden sunrise over the deep-blue ocean. The sophisticated Icicle Silver reflects the stunning contrasts of native gold and moonlight silver, a harmonious pairing celebrated in this classic theme.
Designed to empower your creativity, ZenBook 13 doesn't sacrifice performance for size. It's built to give you all the raw power you need for effortless on-the-go computing.

NVIDIA discrete graphics
The NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete graphics chip in ZenBook 13 gives you desktop-level performance in a laptop. Now, you can expect up to 3.5x faster performance over integrated graphics for silky-smooth photo and video-editing applications. It also works seamlessly with NVIDIA Optimus® technology to give you the perfect balance between long battery life and performance.
NumberPad solves the age-old problem of the lack of a numeric keypad on compact laptops. Tap the NumberPad icon at the top right corner of the touchpad, and an illuminated numeric keypad appears. Just long-press the NumberPad icon again to return to normal touchpad mode — it's not magic, but it's close! With NumberPad you can quickly perform data entry or calculations with less finger movement than using the Fn keys, and in touchpad mode the glass covering provides super-smooth and precise fingertip control with multitouch gesture support. Even when NumberPad is activated, the touchpad retains its cursor function, since the software can recognize your fingertip motion to distinguish between number entry and cursor movement: by monitoring how you interact with NumberPad, the software intelligently recognizes the difference and activates either the cursor or the number typing function.

Evolved function keys
Attention to every useful detail is a key part of the ASUS design philosophy. We've introduced an evolutionary new way of using the humble Fn key to access your laptop's features, such as the volume or display brightness. In the past, you'd press the Fn key first to use these features: now, the function keys operate the advanced features by default. If you want to access the standard function keys (F1-F12) simply use the Fn key combination.
Five-layer NumberPad construction
NumberPad's patent-pending construction places LEDs underneath the touchpad. When NumberPad is activated, the LEDs illuminate the numbers on the touchpad. NumberPad features a special five-layer construction, so that the numbers look sharp and clear when lit, but are practically invisible when turned off.
ASUS Wi-Fi Master
ZenBook 13 incorporates ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology, so you'll enjoy faster and more reliable Wi-Fi connections at greater distances than ever before. This exclusive technology brings you the full benefit of the up-to-12x-faster, MU-MIMO-capable dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi in ZenBook 13, with speeds of up to 1734Mbps4. With Wi-Fi Master, you can enjoy streaming FHD YouTube videos at distances of up to 300 meters or even more4. And even when you're using USB 3 devices — which can cause wireless interference — you can still stream smoothly when you're up to 225 meters or more away from your router, 65 meters farther than on standard laptops without the benefit of Wi-Fi Master!
