Thinner, lighter and more powerful, this newest instalment has been meticulously re-engineered and redesigned to be the most sophisticated ZenBook yet. It’s powered by a 7th-generation Intel® Core™ i7 to guarantee speed, performance and reliability when tasked to do any job, big or small. Sleek strength Slimness is the name of the game with the ZenBook 3 as it measures a mere 11.9mm in thickness, with 3mm hinges. This doesn’t mean it skimps on comfort and enjoyment as it still has a full-size keyboard and a 4-speaker audio system that’s made in partnership with sound specialists Harman Kardon. The ZenBook’s hard-wearing all-metal unibody exterior with Zen-inspired spun-metal finish offers strength and style for an instantly recognisable look. This version also features an elegant golden edge, which is achieved using a special 2-phase anodising process. Top performer Intel’s 7th-generation processor, codename Kaby Lake, is designed to make your laptop faster and more efficient. It’s purposely built to support Thunderbolt 3 and face-scanning cameras used for Windows Hello. Your laptop’s overall productivity will show improvement for flawless multi-tasking and playback of 4K Ultra-HD video will occur without delay or interruption. Solid State Drive A 512 Solid State Drive (SSD) gives you capacity to store your documents and media, while ensuring fast and dependable access to your files and programs. SSDs are much faster than regular hard drives, and don’t use moving parts to work, making them more reliable, too. Keeping it cool The engineers at ASUS have designed a new cooling system for the ZenBook 3 to ensure none of the components overheat while you’re working hard. The liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller is only 0.3mm thick to neatly fit in the device’s slim body, while hidden vents in the hinges work quickly and efficiently to expel heat. Fingerprint access There’s an integrated fingerprint sensor in the touchpad that works together with Windows Hello to eradicate the need to constantly type in your password. Just touch it with your finger and you’re in. Software included: ASUS Finger Print ASUS Smart Gesture ASUS Splendid ASUS WebStorage Sync Agent Looking for a case?
