ASUS Officially Unveils New ZenBook, VivoBook Laptops

All come with refreshing designs and desirable prices

After they were revealed in Taiwan during COMPUTEX 2018, ASUS has made official the new ZenBooks, ZenBook Pro, ZenBook S, and VivoBook S in the Philippines at a grand launch held at Okada last September 21.

Leading the launch are the ZenBook Pro series with their innovative ScreenPad multi-purpose touchpad. Paired with dedicated GTX1050 GPUs, the ZenBook Pro is ASUS’ answer for creatives and content creators who need a laptop that packs a punch.

 

The mainstream ZenBook series stand out with their true 4-side bezel-less design, giving them a 95% screen-to-body ratio—the highest ever in a laptop. The 13 and 14-inch versions get a special trackpad that doubles as a numpad with a push of a button.

 

Those looking for something ultralight have the ZenBook S as a great option. ASUS’ newest premium ultrabook strikes a perfect balance between portability and performance with the latest Intel i7 processor and a battery that can last for up to 14 hours on a single charge.

 

Last but not the least, ASUS’ VivoBook S line gets funky and millennial-friendly with a splash of color. Colors aside, the VivoBook S line gets features found on ZenBooks such as the ErgoLift Hinge and brushed aluminum finish on the top cover and keyboard palm rest.
