    Fremont, California (August 12, 2019) - ASUS today announced the availability of latest ZenBook 14 (UX434) and ZenBook 15 (UX534) laptops, which now feature the revolutionary ASUS ScreenPad™ 2.0. The new ScreenPad 2.0 upgrades the traditional laptop experience, adding an interactive secondary screen that enhances productivity. Its intuitive and newly redesigned smartphone-like interface enables easy task management and allows the creation of seamless multitasking workflows.

    Both models feature a four-sided frameless NanoEdge display, with up to a 95% screen-to-body ratio that gives them the world's most compact footprint in their respective classes2.

    The combination of performance and mobility is a defining feature of the ZenBook series, and the new models feature a full complement of high-performance components including up to 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core CPUs, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics, 16GB RAM, ultrafast PCIe® SSDs and gigabit-class Wi-Fi 5.

    The intelligent touchpad, evolved

    Powered by the new ScreenXpert software, ScreenPad 2.0 now has a larger 5.65-inch touchscreen that offers many new features and benefits. This interactive secondary touchscreen enhances productivity, allowing for more efficient workflow. It includes a collection of handy ASUS utilities to boost productivity: Quick Key enables one-tap automation of complex keyboard sequences, Handwriting for natural text input, and Number Key for rapid data entry. The revised smartphone-like interface is more intuitive for improved ease of use. Third party developers can also use the ASUS API to optimize their software and user experiences for ScreenPad. The hardware is now also more energy efficient than its predecessor, allowing for 2.5X longer2 battery life when ScreenPad is in use.

    The world's most compact designs

    The new ultralight and ultraportable ZenBook models boast the smallest footprints in their class1, a feat made possible by the frameless NanoEdge displays. These stunning 14-inch and 15.6-inch displays feature ultraslim bezels on all four sides, creating up to a 95% screen-to-body ratio that maximizes the screen area in the minimum physical space.

    The result is simply breathtaking: the near-borderless visuals deliver a more immersive viewing experience with less visual distraction, making the ZenBook series the perfect choice for on-the-go creativity or entertainment.

    Complementing the ultracompact design, the traditional ZenBook style and elegance is apparent at a glance: all models feature the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid and a prestigious Royal Blue anodized finish, enhanced with gold lid logos and a contrasting Rose Gold trim bar above the keyboard for an extra touch of luxury. The ASUS ErgoLift hinge design tilts the keyboard automatically for a comfortable typing experience, and also aids cooling.

    Maximum performance

    The new ZenBook series is built to deliver unbounded on-the-go performance, featuring up to the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and a range of fast graphics options, including NVIDIA® GeForce MX250 discrete graphics on the ZenBook 14. ZenBook 15 is equipped with the high-performance NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU.

    All models are equipped with PCIe® SSDs and 16GB of RAM, making ZenBook ideal for creating complex documents, mining data, retouching photos, editing videos, or simply taking a gaming break. The new ZenBook series lets users do more, and do it quicker.

    Mobile professionals need to stay connected — at the fastest speed possible. Both new ZenBook models feature gigabit-class Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) for ultrafast downloads and smooth streaming with greater range and more stable network connections than ever before. Additionally, the latest Bluetooth® 5.0 lets users access all the benefits of the latest low-power peripherals and accessories.

    Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, the new ZenBooks give users the freedom to work all day on a single battery charge — up to an impressive 12.3 hours for ZenBook 14, and an incredible 14.9 hours for ZenBook 154.
