Asus has unravelled its new ZenBook S, a slim ultrabook that can be equipped with up to Intel’s Core i7-1065G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of fast PCIe-based storage.
Asus gave its flagship laptop a complete makeover in the screen department, going from a 16:9 aspect ratio in last year’s model to a taller 3:2 aspect ratio for this year’s 3300 x 2200 touchscreen. Furthermore, the bezels surrounding it are super thin, and the display is Pantone-validated with 100 per cent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour gamut.
The ZenBook S has several other traits that put it on the pedestal of a worthy contender for your next laptop. It features two Thunderbolt 3 ports that can be used for fast data
Plus, Asus claims the 67Wh battery within this ultrabook can last up to 14 hours. With its fast charging capability, it can recharge up to 60 per cent in 49 minutes. Notably, Asus says you can keep the laptop powered either by its included 65W adapter or by a range of USB-C adapters and power banks; it does not matter whether they support power delivery.
This laptop also includes a full-size HDMI port, one USB Type-A port, and a microSD slot. With many tech giants opting to leave the headphone jack out, Asus is no different, but it includes a USB-C to 3.5mm dongle in the box that has an ESS digital-to-audio (DAC) converter built-in. The Asus Zenbook is retailing at $3000.
