Asus released a fancy new laptop to celebrate its 30th anniversary. The ZenBook 13 Edition 30 features an Italian leather lid cover and a secondary display in the trackpad. It has Rose Gold anodized diamond-cut edges to accent the white leather lid cover and white body of the device.
This is yet another laptop from Asus that features the ScreenPad 2.0. The technology combines the laptop's trackpad with a secondary display that can be used for quick actions and interacting with apps. It can also run apps directly, such as a calculator built by Asus. In addition to working well with apps, ScreenPad 2.0 can also be used for handwriting input and as a number pad.
Asus has several laptops that feature a ScreenPad 2.0, including the ZenBook 14 and 15, though none of them have a leather trim like the ZenBook 13 Edition 30.
The ZenBook 13 Edition 30 has a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio thanks to its thin bezels. It runs on an 8th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and has an NVIDIA GeForce MX 250 inside. It has 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD and support for gigabit-class Wi-Fi 5.
The ZenBook 13 Edition 30 is available now exclusively through Asus for $1,400.
This laptop has an Italian leather lid cover and a secondary display inside the trackpad.
