Asus ZenBook 3 is now available for order in the US. The new ZenBook 3 is completely redesigned with an ultra-sleek 11.9mm chassis that weighs a mere 910g. ZenBook 3 is crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy, a premium material that is 50% stronger than the standard alloy used in laptops. As well as being strong and light, this material is also supremely elegant and features the signature ZenBook spun-metal finish. ZenBook 3 is available in three exclusive colors — Royal Blue, Rose Gold and Quartz Grey — and a special 2-phase anodizing process is used to create stunning golden highlights on the diamond-cut edges.
ZenBook 3 delivers great performance with up to an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of 2133MHz RAM, up to a 1TB PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSD, a next-gen USB Type-C port, and powerful quad-speaker audio by Harman Kardon. Its high-resolution 12.5-inch display has a wide 72% NTSC color gamut and has an edge-to-edge covering of tough, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 4. A slim bezel design provides an 82% screen-to-body ratio for the maximum display size with the minimum footprint.
It also features a full-size backlit keyboard with 19.8mm key pitch and 0.8mm key travel to deliver comfortable typing experience. A glass-covered precision touchpad provides smooth and accurate input and incorporates palm-rejection technology, Smart Gestures, and handwriting support for enhanced usability. A built-in fingerprint reader with Windows Hello support gives users instant one-touch access, allowing them to sign in and unlock ZenBook 3 quickly and securely without having to type their password or PIN.
There are two configurations available. The first option is with Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM which costs $1100. The other model comes with Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD for $1600.
