Asus Expands Zenbook Family With New Models
ASUS today announced an expanded range of sleek and stylish ZENBOOK ultraportables that cater for every mobile need. Inspired by the Zen philosophy of achieving balance through beauty and strength, ZENBOOK has an award-winning ultra-slim design with a beautiful, precision-engineered, spun-metal finish. ZENBOOK also features impressive specifications that include powerful quad-core processors, fast solid-state storage and capacitive multi-touch displays in a range of sizes.
ASUS ZENBOOK features a choice of 3rd generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors for outstanding multi-tasking performance, up to 10GB memory and powerful NVIDIA GT graphics. Flexible storage options are also available, including high-capacity hard drives, hybrid drives with solid-state cache for accelerated performance and blazingly fast SSD drives for near-instant app launch times.
Asus ZENBOOK U500VZ
The expanded ZENBOOK range features models with 11.6”, 13.3”, 14”, and 15.6” Full HD displays that are ideal for working with multiple windows side-by-side and enjoying high-definition movies in crisp detail. IPS display technology is standard across the range too, giving a bright, vibrant image with accurate colours and 178° wide viewing angle. Capacitive multi-touch displays are also available on the ZENBOOK U500VZ and UX31A for intuitive fingertip control with Windows 8, and a quick and easy way to work with large multimedia libraries.
Backlit keyboards that automatically respond to ambient light levels and large multi-touch touchpads make ZENBOOK the perfect productivity tool. Dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 offer high-performance wireless connectivity, while USB 3.0 ports offer full support for the latest high-speed external storage devices and rapid mobile-device recharging. ASUS Super Hybrid II technology also gives longer battery life too, and up to two weeks’ standby time with two-second resume.
ZENBOOK is also ideally suited to entertainment. The ZENBOOK U500VZ, UX32VD, UX42VS and UX52VS all feature NVIDIA GT mobile graphics for outstanding visual performance, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, gives superlative sound quality across the entire range. An external subwoofer with the ZENBOOK U500VZ, plus internal optical drives on the ZENBOOK UX42VS and UX52VS, offer a rich home entertainment experience, too.
The beautiful slender profile of ZENBOOK is the result of intense research and development into sophisticated engineering techniques inspired by those used to create high-precision mechanical timepieces. The unique ‘spun-metal’ finish of the ZENBOOK lid alone requires a 32-step manufacturing process, and the finely crafted aluminium case features a combination of gentle curves and a sleek contour that narrows to a mere 3mm. With its stunning design and incredible performance, ZENBOOK is a perfectly balanced ultraportable.
