In conjunction with COMPUTEX 2018, ASUS also revealed its latest range of notebooks. They include the ZenBook Pro 15, ZenBook Pro 14, and ZenBook S. There’s also a new all-in-one desktop PC called the Zen AiO 27.
Of the ones mentioned, the ZenBook Pro models rank as the most interesting to us. Both are premium high-end ultrabooks that introduce a new system, a touchpad that is more than just a means to move the mouse cursor. Dubbed the ScreenPad, this unique touchpad doubles as a high-resolution secondary screen that can be used to interact with the ZenBook Pro in a variety of manner.
For example, a YouTube video’s controls could appear there when watching a YouTube video. It also allows users to have some shortcut controls to certain apps like Microsoft Word, or move some windows to the ScreenPad itself. This feature will be very beneficial for work productivity, and we’re excited to see app compatibility expand in the future.
Under the hood, the ZenBook Pro devices are powered by an Intel Core i9 or i7 processor and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or 1050 Max-Q GPU. The ZenBook Pro 15 comes with a 15.6-inch 4K NanoEdge display with incredible colour reproduction (Adobe sRGB 100%) and a colour accuracy of Delta-E < 2.0, which basically means it’s more than good enough for even professional photographers.
A smaller model can be found in the ZenBook S, a premium 13.3-inch device that blends ultraportability with a robust body and uncompromised connectivity. Its ErgoLift hinge design causes the keyboard to be tilted up for better comfort when typing, while also revealing the NanoEdge display in all of its 4K glory. If that’s not enough, the ZEnBook S also comes with a fast PCIe SSD and three USB Type-C ports, two of which supports Thunderbolt 3.
Zen AiO 27
Those who stay put more and want a smaller footprint can consider the Zen AiO 27, a 27-inch all-in-one desktop PC with some impressive specs. It not only has an eight generation Intel Core i7 CPU, 32GB of DDR4 RAM and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 gpu, but also a premium 4K display with Delta-E < 3.0 colour accuracy.
