Asus ZenBook S UX391 Has Cool Hinge, Pretty Colors

At Computex 2018, ASUS today announced the new ZenBook S, a premium Ultrabook that will take on devices like Surface Laptop.

Other notable launches by ASUS include a blood pressure monitor that the company says is not a smartwatch or fitness tracker, even though it looks a lot like one.

Additionally the VivoBook S13 (S330) is the first ASUS laptop to feature a four-sided NanoEdge display with a remarkable 89 per cent screen-to-body ratio.

The ZenBook 15 comes with a 15.6-inch 4K UHD touchscreen display with color accuracy of Delta E 2.

The 14-inch laptop is slightly thicker and heavier than its non-convertible sibling, the Vivobook S14, measuring in at 17.6mm thick and weighing 1.5kg. At the core of the ZenBook Pro 15 is up to an 8th-generation Intel Core i9-8950HQ hexa-core processor, capable of boosting its frequency up to 4.5GHz and providing nearly 30% faster performance than the previous generation. It's touch-enabled, and after swiping down to enable it, it can be used in a similar fashion to a smartphone, offering apps like a calendar, calculator, and music player. ASUS device will also support a stylus, with the tech on board being able to detect when it is nearby to switch into drawing mode. An Asus rep told us that the ZenBook Pro 15 lasts up to 10 hours, with the ScreenPad off (you can use it as a regular touchpad) but just 6 hours with it on. This is an ASUS innovation that revolutionizes the way users work and interact with their notebook. ScreenPad is said to feature adaptive functions and aims to enhance the work flow. ScreenPad also offers an exciting opportunity for developers to create new ScreenPad Apps or ways of integrating with desktop apps, delivering endless possibilities to users.

Both ZenBooks are extremely attractive, with Asus's bold "deep blue" color scheme consistently applied throughout their chassis.




There will be two ZenBook Pro sizes, a 14-inch model and a 15-inch model.

ASUS already has a few big-name apps that are compatible with the ScreenPad, including Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and YouTube.

The VivoBook Flip 14 will offer a range of processors, from the lowly 8th Gen Intel Core i3 all the way to a competent Core i7, backed up by up to 16GB of RAM and integrated Intel graphics. While this model won't have the show-stopping Intel Core i9 available in the ZenBook Pro 15, it will still boast eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processors, 16 GB of RAM, and a Max-Q GeForce GTX 1050.

On the other hand, the smaller 13.3-inch ZenBook S (UX391) is a compact notebook that doesn't compromise quality seeing that its design has a military-grade MIL-STD-810G durability standard.

The laptops will also have built-in support for Amazon's Alexa.

The ASUS VivoBook S14 and S15 are expected to be available sometime between the end of June and early July.
