The world’s most prestigious laptop with unprecedented performance
To say that ZenBook 3 is a new generation of ZenBook is a huge understatement — it’s ZenBook reimagined for the next era of mobile computing. Every single precision component and every elegantly crafted detail has been completely re-engineered and redesigned to make ZenBook 3 the most sophisticated ZenBook yet. It’s lighter, thinner, stronger, impossibly powerful — and utterly beautiful. Simply, it’s the world’s most incredible laptop. Say hello to ZenBook 3.
Craftsmanship - Crafted to perfection
ZenBook 3’s design took some serious engineering prowess and craftsmanship to realize. The ultra-thin 11.9mm profile meant we had to invent the world’s most compact laptop hinge — just 3mm high — to preserve its sleek lines. To fit in the full-size keyboard, we had to create a surround that’s just 2.1mm wide at the edges, and we designed the powerful four-speaker audio system in partnership with audiophile specialists Harman Kardon.
Beauty - Thinner. Lighter. Tougher.
ZenBook has always been the benchmark for thin and light design, and with ZenBook 3 we’ve taken it to a whole new level. Using premium, aerospace-grade aluminum — lighter than standard laptop alloy, but 50% stronger — we reduced the weight to only 910g and honed the profile to an amazingly thin 11.9mm. To keep the display lightweight and ultra-slim, yet tough, we covered it with just 0.4mm of super-strong Corning Gorilla Glass 4, which is twice as thin as standard cover glass.
Screen - Spectacular display
ZenBook 3 introduces our very first laptop display covered with full edge-to-edge Corning® Gorilla Glass 4. The ultra-slim bezel is just 7.6mm wide, giving ZenBook 3 a class-leading 82% screen-to-body ratio. More importantly, it gives you a distraction-free view of the stunning 12.5-inch Full HD screen.
Screen - Ultra-realistic visuals
To bring you the ultimate visual experience, ZenBook 3 harnesses the power of our own exclusive display technologies, with optimized hardware and software components combined to deliver the best possible images. The wide 72% NTSC color gamut and TV-grade 1000:1 contrast ratio ensure more-vivid, more-lifelike colors, and ASUS Splendid technology fine-tunes display parameters to ensure superb color accuracy, as well as providing automatic optimization for any kind of image.
Performance - Unbelievably powerful
Our engineers had an almost impossible task when choosing the components for ZenBook 3. Their belief was to create an ultra-thin laptop with unprecedented performance, and despite some tough challenges, they’ve succeeded. The result is an unbelievably powerful laptop, with the latest Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 RAM, an ultra-fast up to 1TB PCIe® Gen 3 SSD and the latest USB-C port that support display. So there’s no need to worry about what you can or can’t do with ZenBook 3 — it’s practically unstoppable.
Thermal System - The coolest of cool
The problem with fast, ultra-thin laptops boils down to basic physics. To prevent the laptop enclosure itself getting hot, warm air inside needs to be expelled as quickly as possible to the outside world. With ZenBook 3’s mighty Intel Core i7 processor inside, our engineers had to invent a brand-new cooling system using state-of-the-art components such as a liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller that’s just 0.3mm thick and a copper-alloy heat pipe with walls a mere 0.1mm thick. This innovative cooling system is a mere 3mm thick, and the warm air is gently routed through hidden vents in the hinge for efficient, serenely quiet cooling even under full load.
Battery - All-day battery, charged in minutes
A laptop as beautiful and powerful as ZenBook 3 deserves nothing less than all-day battery life, so to achieve its remarkable up to 9 hours autonomy we designed a special high-capacity 40Wh lithium-polymer battery, specially shaped to fit precisely into the impossibly thin profile. We also added fast charging technology that allows you to charge it up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.
Ubiquity - Mobility without bounds
We live in a wireless world, and ZenBook 3 is fully equipped to give you the very best connections, everywhere. It features the latest power-efficient Bluetooth® 4.1 and dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi that’s more reliable and three times faster than the previous-generation 802.11n.
