Asus launches new Zenbook Pro laptops

Asus ZenBook S (UX391): ZenBook Gets a Lift Asus’ New ZenBook Pros Have A Screen In The Touchpad

The ErgoLift hinge also lends a helping hand to keep the ZenBook S cool to the touch by creating additional space between the laptop and the surface below. You will be able to get a variety of models, including a 4k alternative for those who can't stand 1080p anymore. This swaps out the GTX 1050Ti for a Max-Q-enabled GTX 1050 and locks in an Intel Core i7 CPU for its pre-orders and 16GB RAM. To use, the F6 button toggles between standard touchpad mode and touchscreen.

Lastly, the ZenBook S' fancy hinge also plays into minimal 5.9mm NanoEdge bezels around the screen. Now have some PR.

The computer hardware brand, ASUS has unveiled an all-new range of products, including ZenBook Pro 15, ZenBook Pro 14 and ZenBook S, a full lineup of VivoBook notebooks, and the VivoWatch BP wearable blood-pressure monitor at the ongoing 2018 Computex in Taiwan. These apps are all launched directly onto the ScreenPad and allow you to have quick access to tools such as a calculator, your calendar, music, or mail.

New VivoBook models include VivoBook S15 (S530) and VivoBook S14 (S430), a pair of stylish and lightweight notebooks available in a choice of five vibrant colors and several textured finishes, ASUS said.

In addition, the ZenBook Pro 15 sports a 15.6-inch 4K UHD NanoEdge Pantone validated display with 100 per cent Adobe RGB colour gamut.

Unlike the Razer concept, the secondary display on the ZenBook Pro 15 isn't a full-blown smartphone. The ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad will launch in mid-July, and Asus set its price at $2,299. Asus built audio system that produces a loud, full-bodied sound.

With all the new ScreenPad features, it could be easy to forget that this is still a professionally targeted notebook (in many aspects, but not all). Further, powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete graphics.

Any concerns about video performance go out the window; the ZenBook Pro is armed with GTX 1050 Ti graphics. The idea of a notebook that's essentially all screen is indeed a insane one, but ASUS is counting on artificial intelligence and machine learning to fill the gaps left by the missing keyboard and trackpad.

The key here is specialization: To get the most functionality out of the ScreenPad, an app must have an extension installed. When using Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint the close integration with ScreenPad results in adaptive menus and editing controls appearing on ScreenPad automatically, according to the app and what task is being performed.

The Microsoft Windows Experience blog contains a useful rundown of how ScreenPad works in practice.

The Asus ZenBook S runs on Windows 10 and will be available for sale starting June 11.

Locally, the ZenBook Pro 15 starts at $2999 for the i7-8750H/16GB/512SATA/GTX1050 configuration. The display's 178° viewing angles suggest that it's an IPS panel. There are connectivity aspects such as Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, Wi-Fi and three Thunderbolt 3 ports.

However, until now, the ZenBook line was primarily for "work", even if that work was home use.
