“The new generation laptops from ASUS offer up to 8th generation Intel Core i7 processors inside, along with the proprietary ScreenPad 2.0.”
ASUS has launched its upgraded lineup of laptops in the ZenBook family, including ASUS ZenBook 14, ASUS ZenBook 15, and the ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 convertible laptops. The new laptops bring with themselves fine refreshments to the overall design, build and chassis, as is expected from new laptop generations. Furthermore, the standard ZenBook variants bring to the table ASUS’ new, proprietary ScreenPad 2.0, offering the company’s latest innovation in laptop design into the mainstream segment as well.
Beginning with the ASUS ZenBook 14 and 15, the laptops are powered by 8th generation Intel Core i7-8565u quad-core processor, while the ZenBook 14 also has an option for the slightly less powerful Core i5-8265u processor to be configured with. While the ZenBook 14 can be configured with 8GB or 16GB of DDR3 memory, the ZenBook 15 is available only in one memory variant – 16GB DDR4. The ZenBook 14 can be availed only with SSD storage, ranging between 512GB and 1TB, while ZenBook 15 is offered only with 1TB storage.
In terms of graphics, the ZenBook 14 offers 2GB NVIDIA GeForce MX250 2GB GDDR5, while the ZenBook 15 comes with a choice of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q, with either 2GB or 4GB of VRAM. Both the laptops feature USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and Type-A ports, along with a full-size HDMI port, and ASUS’ NanoEdge display design language, with which the company claims these laptops to be the most compact in their respective screen size categories.
Coming to the ASUS ZenBook Flip 13, the laptop is on offer with the same processor SKUs as the ZenBook 14, i.e Core i5-8265u and Core i7-8565u. ASUS claims 90 percent screen to body ratio of the display, which is 13.3 inches in size and offers a full-HD resolution. Memory, storage and graphics duties are handled by 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 512GB SSD and the Intel UHD 620 integrated GPU. The convertible ZenBook Flip 13 gets two USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 ports and no USB-A ports on the chassis.
Perhaps the biggest draw of the ASUS ZenBook 14 and 15 is the new ScreenPad 2.0, which essentially works like a mini smartphone integrated into the body of the laptop. The traditional trackpad area, alongside working the way a trackpad is expected to, offers multitasking options such as app switching, video and music playing and so on, giving the laptops a layer of future-proofing in terms of the versatility of their usage.
All the three new ASUS ZenBook laptops are now available, and are available on Amazon, Flipkart and Paytm Mall on online stores, and across all ASUS offline retailers. The ASUS ZenBook Flip 13 pricing starts from Rs 76,990, the ZenBook 14 is priced Rs 79,990 onwards, and finally, the ZenBook 15 has its price tag starting from Rs 1,19,990 in India.
