We were amongst the first in the world to get some hands-on time with the THREE new 2018 ASUS ZenBook premium laptop models in Taipei. Check out the full 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing, as well as our own hands-on previews of the ZenBook 13, ZenBook 14 and ZenBook 15 laptops!
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook Tech Briefing
Let’s start with the 2018 ASUS ZenBook tech briefing by Andrew Chan, Senior Manager of the ASUS Global Product Team.
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook models introduce the new frameless ASUS NanoEdge display. Its ultra-slim bezels on all four sides allows ASUS to deliver a screen-to-body ratio of up to 95%, offering a near borderless viewing experience.
They are now the world’s most compact laptops in their respective classes, with a smaller form factor than the previous generation. They also incorporate the unique ErgoLift hinge mechanism that automatically tilts the keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience.
Now, let’s have a close look at the three 2018 ASUS ZenBook models!
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook 13 (UX333)
This is the baby of the family, with a 13-inch NanoEdge display that offers a whopping 95% screen-to-body ratio. Yet it is powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics.
Despite its small size, it boasts a full-size keyboard for comfortable typing. How did ASUS accomplish this? By removing its physical numeric keypad, and replacing it with the ASUS NumberPad – a unique LED-illuminated numeric keypad integrated into the touchpad!
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX433)
This model is quite similar to the ZenBook 13. It has a larger 14-inch NanoEdge display with a 92% screen-to-body ratio. It is also powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics.
Like the ZenBook 13, the 2018 ASUS ZenBook 14 boasts a full-size keyboard, with the new ASUS NumberPad built into its touchpad.
The 2018 ASUS ZenBook 15 (UX533)
This is the big daddy of the 2018 ASUS ZenBook family. Sporting a large 15.6-inch NanoEdge display with a 92% screen-to-body ratio, it is powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics.
Because it has a relatively large chassis, it has enough space for a full-size keyboard with a physical numeric keypad. Hence, it does not come with the ASUS NumberPad built into its keypad.
