Asus’ New ZenBook Pros Have A Screen In The Touchpad

Asus has pretty much mastered the Ultrabook category, so it was inevitable that the company would create something a little insane - and so enter the Asus ZenBook S introduced at Computex 2018.

This is one of those stories where we can let the pictures do most of the talking.

The Asus ZenBook S (UX391) arrives first to the United States on June 11 with a starting price of $1,199 (about £900, AU$1,570).

The 15-inch model will go on sale starting at $2,299 in mid-July, with details for the smaller model still to come.

Weighing in at just 1.2 kg (2.6 lbs) for the S13, 1.4 kg (3 lbs) for the 14-inch S14 and 1.8 kg (4 lbs) for the 15.6-inch S15, the trio of VivBooks are pretty portable as well.

Inside, the 15.6-inch laptop is a beast. With an ultrathin 12.9mm profile and ultralight 1kg all-metal unibody, the sophisticated ZenBook S is finished in prestigious Deep Dive Blue or elegant Burgundy Red with Rose Gold diamond-cut edges, complete with the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish for a luxurious look and feel. Graphics-intensive and GPU-accelerated task such as 3d-rendering, 4K UHD video playback, smooth 1080p gaming performance make the ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad a media powerhouse enjoyed by designers, developers, and gamers alike. Meanwhile, the rear end of the screen lid, pitches the keyboard at a 5.5-degrees to simulate a desktop typing experience. This is a neat feature and time will tell if someone is going to use it or is Asus just flexing muscles. This year, they're targeting creators more than ever and the new ZenBook Pros are packed full of power. It also has the added benefit of creating some space between the base of the laptop and the surface which should help with cooling as well. The laptop also features a smart amplifier that automatically maximizes volume for top-notch sound quality.
