Makati, Philippines ― ASUS Philippines unveiled the long-anticipated ASUS ZENBOOK™ that fuses masterpiece design and incredible performance at an intimate media gathering event in Greenbelt 3, Makati. The ASUS ZENBOOK™ is designed to be effortlessly enjoyable without compromising on performance. It exudes the perfect balance of elegance and power in an Ultrabook hence the name ZENBOOK™. Asus Philippines Technical PR Specialist Eason De Guzman introduced to the media audience key incredible reasons why you will believe in love at first sight when you see the ASUS ZENBOOK™.
Originally demonstrated at Computex this year, ASUS ’ new ZENBOOK is a masterclass in Ultraportable design. From the outside its spun-metal finish exhibits an extremely elegant and eye-catching design. At just 3-17mm thin it’s also the thinnest ASUS notebook to date, while its minimal proportions help draw focus to the large surfaces of spun-metal. It also means the 1.1kg Ultrabook is extremely easy to slip into any backpack or handbag, or simply whipped under an arm. Clearly the ZENBOOK’s form and function creates a natural synergy for people predominantly on the go.
Backing up its beauty is yet another ASUS innovation, as the SonicMaster team has managed to work their magic on the audio here as well. With audio Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® and SonicMaster technology, the ZENBOOK incorporates genuine technology that includes a premium audio codec, larger, more refined speakers with appropriately beefed up amplifiers and a larger bass chamber for deeper vibrations and to back them up. Together, this brings a professional grade audio experience in an extremely mobile package. That’s not all squeezed in under the keyboard though.
The nutty center also houses a second generation Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 and a SATA 6Gbps SSD. This means this tiny Ultrabook is actually faster than most notebooks! The incredibly fast SATA Revision 3.0 SSD and DDR3 help feed the premium performance Core i5 CPU with all the data you can throw at it. This keeps the system extremely nippy, even if you stress it heavily with work or video. Add in display resolutions up to the HD+ 1600 × 900 pixels on the 13 inch, ASUS ZENBOOK UX31 model, and the extra desktop real-estate for multitasking comes in handy.
While an impressive spec, what really brings the ZENBOOK alive is the innovative Super Hybrid Engine II that features ‘Instant On’ technology. This saves your system state for up to two weeks in standby, yet it is also able to relaunch the system in just two seconds. This means that no matter how far and for how long you have to go from your office, your finger is always on the button, raring to go! So, do you get it now? Here, the Zen is about getting things done fast and efficiently, anywhere, anytime: keeping you cool even when the things get tough. It really is a mobile mogul’s new best friend.
