    ZenBook 13 is not just a superbly capable laptop — it's also a powerful style statement. Its sleek and sophisticated profile is finished in your choice of two gorgeous color options — classic Slate Grey, or sumptuous Royal Blue with a luxurious crystal-like gloss coating created using a high-tech nano-imprinted lithography process. Both options are further adorned with our iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish.

    Reflect your own style

    The Royal Blue version of ZenBook 13 features an added enhancement to our iconic spun-metal finish: a stunning crystal-like glossy coating.

Additionally, the edges of ZenBook 13 have a smooth 2.5D contour, so it looks sleek and stylish, as well as being superbly comfortable to hold.
