ASUS Unveils Next-Generation ZenBooks

They have crazy thin display bezels to boot

ASUS launched its 2018 refresh of its ZenBook line at IFA 2018 in 13-inch, 14-inch, and 15-inch flavors. All three variants have anew frameless ASUS NanoEdge display, where a 95% screen-to-body ratio is achieved using ultraslim bezels on all four sides.

These compact notebooks have an ErgoLift hinge mechanism that lifts the keyboard at a comfortable angle. The 13-inch and 14-inch models get a LED-illuminatedĀ NumberPad that is embedded right into the touchpad. Between the three models, the ZenBook 13 is the most portable; its size is almost comparable to an A4-size paper, and weighs in at 1.09KG.
