The ASUS ZenBook 15 UX533 Hands-On Preview!

The ASUS ZenBook 15 UX533 has a 15.6-inch NanoEdge display that offers a whopping 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.

It boasts a full-size keyboard for comfortable typing. It does not have the ASUS NumberPad, because there is enough space to fit a physical numeric pad.

It also comes with a 3D infrared camera, which allows you to login with Windows Hello even in the darkest of conditions. Even though the new ZenBook 15 has very thin bezels, ASUS managed to squeeze the camera into the top bezel.

Road warriors will be glad to know that the new ASUS ZenBook 15 has a rated battery life of 16 hours, and is MIL-STD-810G rated for reliability and durability.

The ASUS ZenBook 13 UX333 has a 13.3-inch NanoEdge display that offers a whopping 95% screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by a quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core i7 or Core i5 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!

It also comes with a 3D infrared camera, which allows you to login with Windows Hello even in the darkest of conditions. Even though the new ZenBook 13 has very thin bezels, ASUS managed to squeeze the camera into the top bezel.
