Luxurious metallic design with unique concentric circles
ASUS ZENBOOK achieves a unique combination of artistic craftsmanship and advanced technology. It arises from the efforts of a dedicated team of designers and engineers, working hard to deliver a portable PC that's eminently cool, stylish and powerful, gifted with a harmony of great looks and potent features
Innovative fabrication techniques
The ZENBOOK presents a fetching hairline spun metal finish with concentric circles that embody the tranquility and infinite potential of this Ultrabook. Using durable but elegant aluminum, this design is the first of its kind attained on a notebook this compact. ASUS developed production processes and machining tools to create the ZENBOOK and overcome challenges such as applying aluminum hairlines to curved parts.
Tough and touchable aluminum
There are several advantages to the finely crafted aluminum used in ASUS ZENBOOK construction. In addition to its gorgeous appearance, aluminum offers a lighter Ultrabook that's easier to carry, while retaining strength and durability. To accomplish a sleek and smooth metallic look, ASUS developed mounting methods that reduce screw usage by 12%, taking inspiration from hand-crafted luxury wrist watches.
Extra bright and crisp display
Superior quality visuals make every application more appealing and memorable
High definition visuals look better on the world's first 450 cd/m2 panel on any Ultrabook, making dark areas clearer, while light areas stand out in vivid detail. Despite the compact form factor, ASUS ZENBOOK doesn't skimp on tantalizing graphics, rendering everything from multimedia to productivity in amazing fidelity.
Full HD panel with IPS technology
Implementing improved screen technology, in-plane switching, or IPS, goes far beyond the capabilities of traditional TN panels. Premium IPS displays generate wider viewing angles up to 178 degrees for easier enjoyment and sharing from any direction without image quality degradation.
One of the key advantages of the ASUS ZENBOOK is its smartphone-like spontaneity and always-on design. Regardless of how long the Ultrabook remains in standby, it can resume in just two seconds thanks to exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology. In effect, this means users have no reason to shut the ASUS ZENBOOK down, eliminating the need for lengthy boot ups. And with exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology, the ASUS ZENBOOK can stay in standby for up to two weeks. Instant on functionality automatically backs up data to the SSD should the battery level drop below 5%, removing the risk of data loss due to a drained battery. The ZENBOOK therefore adds worry-free usability to its list of advantages.
Instant on 2-second resume
The ASUS ZENBOOK with instant on functionality can resume in just two seconds from sleep. This is as quick as a smartphone, so you can get back to the things you want done immediately, with no annoying wait times. It makes for an always on and carefree experience that's a refreshing change from other notebooks.
Smooth computing with better multitasking and multimedia performance
Superior portability, versatility and entertainment all converge at a highly affordable price point. ZENBOOK extends value with powerful graphics, offering the world's first 13.3" ultrabook with Intel HD graphics. That power drives a gorgeous Full HD IPS wide-view panel with 350 cd/m2 brightness, perfect for multimedia and gaming. At the heart of it is Intel Core i7 processor, and the speed and reliability hard drive.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 data transfers
ASUS ZENBOOK models ship with SATA 6 Gbps solid state drives rather than older mechanical storage options, making the most of the latest hard drive interface standard with double the bandwidth of SATA 3 Gbps. USB 3.0 also comes standard, upping data speeds by as much as ten times compared to USB 2.0. On average, ASUS ZENBOOK offers seven times faster data connectivity next to competing models, boosting the user experience in every application.
Advanced cooling designIn The Box
Maintains lower temperatures for higher stability, reliability, and longevity
To accommodate so much powerful technology on a compact form factor, ASUS engineers have developed custom cooling and thermal designs that use a V-shaped air channel to increase air flow, as well as unique beryllium copper alloy components to better handle heat. There are even copper fins to direct heat away out of the case, so ASUS ZENBOOK always stays cool. While thinner and lighter than competing models, ASUS ZENBOOK is also more powerful, and runs at lower temps for increased longevity and reliability.
