Asus revealed its new Surface Laptop competitor, the ZenBook 3 Deluxe at Computex earlier this month. The company’s ZenBook 3 Deluxe is now available for purchase, just a few days after the Surface Laptop and you can get one for yourself right now from Amazon.com.
In terms of the specs, Asus’ Zenbook 3 Deluxe gives you all the latest goodies. You get the usual latest Intel’s 7th-gen Core i7 processors, up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and up to 1TB PCIe SSD. The device is only 12.9mm thin and weighs only 1.1kg, beating the Surface Laptop in both cases.
That’s not all — there’s also a Type-C port on the ZenBook 3 Deluxe, which Microsoft didn’t include on the Surface Laptop and had to face a lot of criticism for that, too. Asus has also packed in Thunderbolt 3 with support for 40GBps data transfers into the ZenBook 3 Deluxe — making it capable of powering 2 4K UHD external monitors.
The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe starts at $1,299 which is $200 more than the Surface Laptop, but you certainly get a lot more power on the ZenBook 3 Deluxe than the Surface Laptop. Unfortunately, the entry-level model of the device isn’t available yet and Asus is only selling one of the expensive variants of the device at the moment.
If you’re interested, you can get the Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe with 16GB RAM and 512GB Storage for $1,696 here.
