Aside from the ASUS Zenbook Pro, the Taiwanese company also announced the ASUS Zenbook S and it’s their most prestigious Zenbook yet. The notebook is ultraportable as it packs a 12.9mm thin body with a 1kg-light with a near A4 size metal unibody with MIL-STD-410G Military grade so you already know that the notebook is tough despite its really thin and sexy profile.
This new laptop will also have a powerful new hardware inside as this one will still be powered by an 8th Generation Intel Core Processor with PCIe x4 SSD. There’s no Nvidia GeForce GPUs here but this one would be enough for daily use as long as you don’t use this notebook for gaming. It will also have a 4K UHD NanoEdge display and it can deliver 13.5 hours of battery life.
The laptop will also support Thunderbolt 3 on two of the USB Type-C so you can use external GPUs for gaming. So this laptop would be perfect for those people who are always playing games on their homes at night and also doing their serious office stuff at the day.
The ASUS ZenBook S also features an ErgoLift hinge mechanism which raises the keyboard by 5.5-degrees for a more comfortable typing experience. It also gives better airflow for the notebook to have a better thermal.
The ASUS Zenbook S also supports Amazon Alexa so you can have a smarter way of getting things done on your notebook. You can ask simple tasks from Alexa to help you in your daily routine.
The ASUS Zenbook S will be available this June 2018 at these prices:
