Asus introduces two ZenBooks with unique features

Computex is currently taking place in Taiwan, and all the manufacturers are racing to impress with unique features. Asus is one of these companies that brought two new Zenbooks, both with impressive, although questionable ideas.

The Zenbook Pro UX580 arrives with 15.6 4K screen and a secondary 5.5 display, doubling as a touchpad. The ZenBook S is an ultra-light device of about 1 kg with a hinge that lifts the bottom part of the notebook when opened for ergonomic reasons.

The ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 has Intel Core i9 processor and GTX 1050 Ti graphics card by Nvidia. RAM goes up to 16 GB, while storage can go as high as 1 TB SSD. The screenpad can be used either for detailed pinpointing of an element on the bigger display or as a secondary screen.

The user interface allows a second window to be moved there and to be active while using the touchpad at the same time. This is a neat feature and time will tell if someone is going to use it or is Asus just flexing muscles. The ZenBook is arriving mid-July with a starting price of $2,299.
