All models in the series feature a four-sided frameless NanoEdge display, with up to a 95 per cent screen-to-body ratio that gives them the world's most compact footprint in their respective classes.

The combination of performance and mobility is a defining feature of the ZenBook series, and the new models feature a full complement of high-performance components including up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core CPUs, up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics, 16GB RAM, ultrafast PCIe SSDs and gigabit-class Wi-Fi 5.

Powered by the new ScreenXpert software, ScreenPad 2.0 now has a larger 5.65-inch touchscreen that offers many new features and benefits. This interactive secondary touchscreen enhances productivity, allowing for a more efficient workflow. It includes a collection of handy ASUS utilities to boost productivity: Quick Key enables one-tap automation of complex keyboard sequences, Handwriting for natural text input, and Number Key for rapid data entry. The revised smartphone-like interface is more intuitive for improved ease of use. Third-party developers can also use the ASUS API to optimize their software and user experiences for ScreenPad. The hardware is now also more energy efficient than its predecessor, allowing for 2.5X longer battery life when ScreenPad is in use.

The new ultralight and ultraportable ZenBook models boast the smallest footprints in their class1, a feat made possible by the frameless NanoEdge displays. These stunning 13.3-inch, 14-inch and 15.6-inch displays feature ultraslim bezels on all four sides, creating up to a 95 per cent screen-to-body ratio that maximizes the screen area in the minimum physical space.

The result is simply breathtaking: the near-borderless visuals deliver a more immersive viewing experience with less visual distraction, making the ZenBook series the perfect choice for on-the-go creativity or entertainment.

Complementing the ultracompact design, the traditional ZenBook style and elegance is apparent at a glance: all models feature the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid, and there's a choice of prestigious Royal Blue anodized finishes, both enhanced with gold lid logos and a contrasting Rose Gold trim bar above the keyboard for an extra touch of luxury. The ASUS ErgoLift hinge design tilts the keyboard automatically for a comfortable typing experience and also aids cooling.

The new ZenBook series is built to deliver unbounded on-the-go performance, featuring up to the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and a range of fast graphics options, including up to NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete graphics on ZenBook 13, 14 and Edition 30. ZenBook 15 is equipped with high-performance NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU.

All models are equipped with PCIe SSDs and up to 16GB of RAM, making ZenBook ideal for creating complex documents, mining data, retouching photos, editing videos, or simply taking a gaming break. The new ZenBook series lets users do more, and do it quicker.

Mobile professionals need to stay connected — at the fastest speed possible. All new ZenBook models feature gigabit-class Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) for ultrafast downloads and smooth streaming with greater range and more stable network connections than ever before. Additionally, the latest Bluetooth 5.0 lets users access all the benefits of the latest low-power peripherals and accessories.

Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, the new ZenBook series gives users the freedom to work all day on a single battery charge — up to an impressive 14 hours for ZenBook 13 and 14, and an incredible 17 hours for ZenBook 15.

The limited-edition ASUS ZenBook Edition 30 is a unique celebration of 30 years of ASUS innovation. It draws on the ASUS heritage but is designed with an eye on the future, and features the finest leather craftsmanship as a mark of our confidence. It's an amazing laptop that is another milestone in our search for incredible.

Back in 2006, ASUS created the S6F Leather Collection, the world’s first laptop to incorporate genuine-leather panels. ZenBook Edition 30 brings a futuristic twist to that classic look, with a lid encased in luxurious Pearl White genuine Italian leather — hand-crafted and hand-stitched for perfect fit appearance — for a pure, bold style statement. The Rose Gold anodized diamond-cut edges and trim bar, accompanied by the exclusive 18-karat rose-gold-plated 30th-anniversary logo on the lid, are eye-catching additions that give ZenBook Edition 30 a look of pure luxury.

ZenBook Edition 30 is exclusively equipped with a complete set of premium accessories, including a Pearl White mouse, a leather-look box and mouse pad, and a genuine-leather sleeve. It's a very special collection for a very special laptop.
