ASUS has taken the wraps off of a slew of updates that cover most of its PC lineup, bringing along Intel's latest Kaby Lake processors. In all, updated versions of ASUS' ZenBook, Transformer Pro and Zen AiO PCs are all on the table.
The biggest change across the board for these updates is the addition of Kaby Lake processors to the lineup. While not a radical change from the previous Skylake, Kaby Lake does offer up better battery life and some performance boosts. That said, here's a look at all of the updated models and their prices, from The Verge:
- ZenBook UX330 - starts at $749
- ZenBook UX310 - starts at $699
- ZenBook UX510 - starts at $999
- ZenBook Flip UX360UA - starts at $899
- Transformer Pro T304 - starts at $999
- Zen AiO Pro Z240IE - starts at $1,799
- Zen AiO ZN270IE - starts at $999
- Zen AiO ZN241IC - starts at $999
As The Verge notes, there are some other minor differences to be aware of between some models. The ZenBook UX330 packs a larger 4K display and better graphics than the UX330. As for availability, the ZenBook UX330, UX310, and UX510 are all set to go on sale immediately, while the rest of the lineup is set to go on sale in May. It's also worth noting that ASUS' GT51CH gaming desktop is also getting a bump up to Kaby Lake, but its pricing and availability are unknown at the moment.
Aside from slight body differences, how does the ZenBook Flip UX360UA differ from the Q324UA? They seem to have identical specs in and out. If the keyboard / trackpad / display / Wi-Fi are as bad with the UX360UA as they are on the Q324UA, I'd have to avoid it.
I like ASUS Zenbooks. But this lineup seems too convoluted and confusing. I wish ASUS would price and distribute them aggressively. Would have loved to buy one of the Zenbook if it were available in Pakistan at a competitive price around $700 (70k Pakistani Rupees).
