ASUS has taken to CES 2018 to unveil a range of new laptops, PCs, and gaming products. However, leading the pack are the latest entries in its ZenBook lineup, the ZenBook 13 and ZenBook Flip 14.
The new ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) features the typical styling of the ZenBook line with an emphasis on a thin and light design. In terms of internals, the laptop packs Intel's newest eighth-generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of SSD storage. Battery life is pretty impressive as well – if it lives up to ASUS' claims of 15 hours, that is. According to ASUS, the ZenBook 13 will support Windows Hello authentication as well via the fingerprint sensor located below the right side of the keyboard.
The ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) will be available sometime in the first half of 2018, with prices to be announced at launch, ASUS says.
If a convertible laptop is more your style, ASUS has also announced an updated ZenBook Flip 14. Available in March in North America for $899, the ZenBook Flip 14 will be powered by Intel's eighth-generation Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of SSD storage. Graphics will get a boost from a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 chip, and ASUS estimates you can expect up to 13 hours of battery life. And, as the "Flip" designation implies, the 360-degree hinge means you can rotate the display between standard laptop, tent, display, and tablet modes, and anything in between.
Alongside the flagship ZenBooks, ASUS also announced that two new all-in-one PCs, the Vivo AiO V272 and Vivo AiO V222, which include Intel eighth-generation processors and will be available in the first half of 2018.
