[IFA 2018] ASUS unveils world’s most compact laptops — three new ZenBooks and two new ZenBook Flips
ASUS is very proud of delivering incredible innovations in their ASUS ZenBook series. This year they are bringing out the world’s most compact laptops at IFA 2018, as well as the new Zen AiO 27 with a 4K PANTONE Validated display for content creators.
ASUS ZenBook 13/14/15 and ZenBook Flip 13/15
These new laptops feature NanoEdge displays with ultraslim bezels for up to 95% screen-to-body ratio. This has allowed the new ZenBook laptops to be the most compact laptops in the world. Even with the ridiculously slim bezels, you can opt for a PANTONE Validated displays in the ZenBook 15 (UX562), with low Delta-E values of less than 3 for the FHD model, and an even more impressive Delta-E <2 value for the 4K variant.
But that’s not all. The new ZenBook 13 (UX333), ZenBook 14 (UX433) and ZenBook Flip 13 (UX362) will come with a new NumberPad with an LED-illuminated numeric keyboard built into the touchpad so users do not have to sacrifice anything even when opting for a smaller laptop like the 13″ and 14″ ZenBooks.
ASUS Zen AiO 27
For those who want a bigger screen to work on, the ASUS Zen AiO 27 offers a 27″ 4K PANTONE Validated display for accurate colors and just oodles of viewing space. To improve the cooling, ASUS put the powerful Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU into the base instead of behind the display. This design approach makes it easier to upgrade while also allowing for a slimmer display housing.
Aside from these devices, ASUS will also be showcasing the ASUS ZenBook S and ZenBook Pro 14 introduced back at Computex 2018 here at IFA 2018 Berlin.
Pokdepinion: I definitely dig the ZenBook 13 and ZenBook 14’s slim bezel displays and compact form factor! The numpad in the touchpad is a cool addition but I rarely use the numpad anyway.
