The ASUS ZenBook 13, ZenBook 14 and the ZenBook 15 now come with a new frameless ASUS NanoEdge display. This not only helps in achieving a sleek look but also enhances the screen real estate with a staggering 95 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The hinge mechanism can also be used to tilt the laptop to a comfortable angle. That apart, the new ZenBook comes with a backlit numeric pad built right into the touchpad.

Powering the new ZenBook 13, 14, and 15 are 8th-Gen Intel Core i7 processors. On the graphics front, ASUS offers up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics.
