Asus new ultrabook, or as Asus like to call it Zenbook, is only 15.5 mm thick, but hefty 1.38kg (48.68 ounces, 2.2 pounds).
The HD IPS display offers 178-degree viewing angles, and 10-point multi-touch support for all your Windows 8 fun. The CPU is Intel’s latest 28W Core i7 Haswell processor and the standard Intel Iris graphics can be upped to NVidia GT 730M graphics. Asus Zenbook UX301 offers WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. Single USB 3.0 and ASUS SonicMaster audio are standard.
We’re not sure how much this Zenbook will cost, but judging by the hardware specs it will cost a pretty penny. The Core i5 model should start at $1799, the Core i7 model around $2000. For the price conscious folk Asus has similar UX3012 model with ‘just’ 1080p screen. Both ultrabooks come in a choice of Moonstone White and Sapphire Blue sometimes in November.
