The world's most compact 13.9” laptop4
The advantage of slimmer bezels isn't just visual: they also help reduce the overall size of ZenBook S13. So despite its larger 13.9-inch NanoEdge display, ZenBook S13 actually has a 12.5%-smaller footprint than previous 13.9-inch models! More beauty and power in less space — what's not to like about that?

CNC-milled for added strength
To create the perfect 3D-curved lid shape and complex keyboard surround of ZenBook S13, a high-precision CNC-milling process is used to shape single pieces of solid aluminum. This reduces unnecessary internal voids, helping make the entire chassis tougher and stronger than is possible using traditional metal-stamping methods.
Sophisticated Utopia Blue
ZenBook S13 is designed to be a perfect blend of power and beauty. It's finished in exclusive new Utopia Blue, a shade that's not only sophisticated and elegant, but also full of optimism for the future.
More comfortable typing
A slight positive tilt on your keyboard helps reduce discomfort during long typing stints, something that's not usually taken into account in laptop design. The innovative ErgoLift hinge on ZenBook S13 changes all that: it automatically tilts the keyboard when you open the laptop for a comfortable, more desktop-like experience. And when you close ZenBook S13 the ErgoLift mechanism is completely hidden, so it doesn't affect the sleek profile.
More efficient cooling
When the ErgoLift hinge mechanism tilts the keyboard, it also creates an important extra ventilation space that allows more airflow around the underside of the chassis. With this improved ventilation, ZenBook S13 keeps its cool even when you're pushing through to meet those tough deadlines.
More immersive audio
The extra space underneath ZenBook S13 created by the ErgoLift hinge has yet another benefit: it allows the powerful speakers to work at their best, delivering clearer sound with improved bass response.
With faster-than-wired speeds of up to 1734Mbps, the dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi in ZenBook S13 lets you enjoy smooth streaming of online videos, with greater range and more stable network connections.
More comfortable, by design
All too often, laptop keyboards seem to be an afterthought. But not on ZenBook S13: its ergonomic keyboard is designed from the start with comfort in mind. It has widely spaced, long-travel keys that feel more like a desktop, and the tops of the keys are gently dished to aid accurate typing. The gentle backlight lets you work in any lighting conditions, while remaining easy on the eyes.
Easier access to hardware controls
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.
