The new ZenBook 13 gives you all the elegance and style you expect from a ZenBook — and a whole lot more, with a sophisticated modern design that places it in a class of its own. This ultralight marvel features a high-performance discrete graphics chip, giving it all the pixel-pushing horsepower you need for creativity and entertainment: editing videos, manipulating photos, or just enjoying your favorite movies and games. It's speedy. It's thin and light. It's ZenBook 13!
Designed for effortless portability, ZenBook 13 is just 13.9mm thin and 1.12kg* light, with a slim-bezel NanoEdge display that makes it much more compact than a typical 13-inch laptop. With ZenBook 13, you're always ready to go anywhere at a moment's notice.
*Weight varies according to specification
ZenBook 13 is not just a superbly capable laptop — it's also a powerful style statement. Its sleek and sophisticated profile is finished in classic Slate Grey. It is further adorned with our iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish.
To give you the biggest screen in the least space, ZenBook 13 has a beautiful NanoEdge touchscreen*, with an ultrathin 6.86mm bezel that gives it an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio. With no distracting bezel, you'll feel more immersed in your tasks. This amazing 13.3-inch FHD touchscreen* fits in an ultra-compact frame, giving ZenBook 13 a footprint smaller than many 13-inch models. And its 178° wide-view technology ensures that image quality isn't degraded when viewed at extreme angles, so it's great for collaborating or entertaining.
*Specifications vary according to region
ASUS Pen support
With ZenBook 13 and the ASUS Pen* active stylus, you can let your creativity flow. ASUS Pen detects even the most minute pressure variations — in 1,024 steps from 10g all the way up to 300g. It also exceeds the industry accuracy standard, so you can hold it at angles of up to 45° without affecting the quality and placement of the lines you draw. With ASUS Pen you can jot down your thoughts, annotate diagrams or sketch out your creative ideas in an intuitive way with a natural, responsive feel.
*ASUS Pen is sold separately
If you need an ultrathin Windows 10 Pro laptop with serious processing power and class-leading graphics performance, ZenBook 13 is the perfect choice. At its heart is the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor — which can be boosted to 4.6GHz when needed — with 16GB RAM and an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 discrete graphics chip. And blazingly fast storage is provided by up to a 1TB PCIe® SSD. So whether you’re creating mega-sized office documents, manipulating high-resolution photos, editing HD video, or simply taking a break with the latest high-powered games, ZenBook 13 will never keep you waiting.
Faster, but more energy-efficient!
Due to their limited internal space, many ultrathin laptops use integrated graphics chips that share system memory and offer only a basic level of performance. ZenBook 13 is the world's thinnest laptop with discrete graphics*, using a separate high-performance NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 chip with its own dedicated video memory. This gives ZenBook 13 effortless photo- and video-editing capabilities and fast, ultra-smooth gaming performance.
Advanced graphics performance
ZenBook 13 uses a high-performance NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 discrete graphics chip — with its own dedicated video memory — that delivers up to a 4X performance boost* over standard integrated graphics chips that share part of the main system RAM. So whether you want to edit photos, render videos or play the latest demanding games, ZenBook 13 delivers a smooth, flawless experience — in stunning visual quality.
