The world’s most prestigious laptop, enhanced.
8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors: Designed for what's coming next.
They say that you can’t improve on perfection. That’s a nice thought, but with the new ZenBook 3 Deluxe we’ve proved them wrong by taking the amazing ZenBook 3 and making it even better. ZenBook 3 Deluxe achieves the almost-impossible, featuring a gorgeous 14-inch display in an elegant and compact chassis that’s no bigger than many 13-inch laptops. It’s an unrivaled combination of power and beauty, giving you the perfect balance between portability and productivity. Measuring just 12.9mm thin and weighing only 1.1kg, ZenBook 3 Deluxe has everything you need for superb on-the-go performance, including a 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, up to a 1TB PCIe® SSD, two USB Type-C™ (USB-C) ports with Thunderbolt™ 3 for dual 4K UHD display supports, and a powerful quad-speaker audio system. ZenBook 3 Deluxe takes ZenBook 3 to the next level — for the ultimate prestige and performance.1
Crafted to perfection
ZenBook 3 Deluxe has a very simple design philosophy: Never compromise. It’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with a beauty that reflects a painstaking attention to detail. The perfect curves of the all-aluminum chassis are carved from a single block of metal that then goes through a 40-step process to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish with its lustrous, silky sheen. A complex two-phase anodising process is then used to create the elegant golden diamond-cut edges and unique golden ASUS lid logo. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite design that offers the perfect combination of beauty, mobility, performance and productivity.Learn more about Beauty
The 13-inch laptop with a 14-inch display
The chassis of ZenBook 3 Deluxe is the size of many 13-inch laptops — yet it features an extra-large 14-inch display. ZenBook 3 Deluxe is constructed from premium, aerospace-grade aluminum alloy. This grade of allow is 50% stronger than standard alloy, allowing the ZenBook 3 Deluxe to have an amazingly thin 12.9mm profile and weigh only 1.1kg.2 ASUS Zenbook 3 Deluxe features 0.55mm thick Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, which is the toughest cover glass yet while delivering the damage resistance Gorilla Glass is known for.Learn more about Beauty

NanoEdge Display: ultra-narrow bezel
Fitting a 14-inch Full HD display into a 13-inch frame wasn’t easy. One of the keys to achieving this for ZenBook 3 Deluxe is its NanoEdge ultra-narrow display bezel, which is just 7.46mm wide. This allows the biggest possible screen area, giving ZenBook 3 Deluxe a class-leading 84% screen-to-body ratio. Wide-viewing-angle technology ensures undistorted colour and great contrast at viewing angles up to 178°, for easy collaboration and screen sharing. This superb display with its realistic colour reproduction and crisp detail must be seen to be believed.Learn more about Beauty

The coolest of cool
The challenge in designing a fast, ultra-thin laptop boils down to basic physics. To prevent the laptop from getting too hot, warm air inside needs to be expelled as quickly as possible. For the mighty Intel® Core™ i7 processor in ZenBook 3 Deluxe ASUS engineers had to invent a brand-new cooling system using state-of-the-art components, including a liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller that’s just 0.3mm thick and a copper-alloy heat pipe with walls that are a mere 0.1mm thick. This innovative cooling system is just 3mm high, and the warm air from the interior is gently expelled via hidden vents in the hinge. The overall design allows for efficient, serenely quiet cooling— even under full loads.Learn more about Technology
Optimised for quiet and balanced performance
The new Quiet Fan app enables you to select the ideal silent level for the task at hand, allowing you to switch between balanced and high performance modes. Turning on Quiet Fan provides you with balanced performance and a standard fan speed for silent computing; while turning Quiet Fan off results in a higher fan speed to cope with high load demands.Download ZenBook 3 Deluxe driver and utility
