The ZenBook lineup is the perfect mix of beauty and power. The ZenBook 13 was originally announced at the IFA conference, but a new lighter version is making its big debut at CES. With a mere 13.9 mm profile and 985 g weight, it’s the ultimate companion for life on the move. Despite its premium, compact build, the ZenBook 13 includes a powerful 8th. Generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a lightning-fast 1 TB PCIe SSD. Add on top of that a stellar full HD display, 15-hour battery, and a versatile range of connectivity, and you have a premium piece of hardware.
ASUS also had their flagship ZenBook Flip S, ZenBook Flip 14, ZenBook Pro, and ZenBook 3 Deluxe models on display. These slim, powerful machines are built with luxurious materials, and are the very apex of PC design.
NovaGo is a brand new laptop with an architecture never seen before. It’s using the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, enabling it to boot up with the same speed and responsiveness as you’d expect from your smartphone. The NovaGo even has wireless connectivity that outstrips many smartphones. It’s the very first laptop with gigabit LTE built-in. When connected to supporting networks, you’ll be able to enjoy browsing day-to-day outside of a Wi-Fi zone with incredible speed. Best of all, the NovaGo has an incredible 22 hours of video playback on a single charge, so you can really go the distance without worry.
Then there’s the mainstream VivoBook series to check out. The VivoBook S14 is a dependable, portable laptop with all of the power you need for day-to-day work. The NanoEdge display affords immersive visuals without increasing the PC’s footprint, while an Intel Core i7 processor handles daily tasks. The VivoBook Pro 15 sports a rich 4K display and discrete gaming-grade NVIDIA graphics. This is a solid pick if you’re big on gaming or editing video. The VivoBook Flip 14 is versatile convertible with enough power to get you through daily tasks. Grab the ASUS Pen and flip over into tablet mode to take meeting notes, brainstorm ideas, or sketch out your latest design.
The ASUS Laptop is a series that, at its core, is about providing great value for their price. The ASUS X507 is a brand new entrant which provides incredible value and a beautiful design. It’s 1.68 kg light and sports a super slim display bezel. Even though you’re saving a few dollars with the ASUS X507, you can still benefit from NVIDIA MX110 graphics, an Intel Core i7 processor, and a dual storage system with up to a 1 TB HDD and a 256 GB SSD. The ASUS X507 sets a new baseline for personal and professional computing, bringing with it a quality well beyond its price range.
Zen AiO / Vivo AiO
ASUS upgraded their Zen AiO PC for gamers with some slick new design elements. It keeps the gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, up to 32 GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i7 processor for all of the heavy lifting needed for the latest AAA titles.
