Super Thin ASUS Zenbook 3 Is Here To Take On Apple’s Macbook Air

by Joe 20

ASUS has just announced a potential Macbook Air killer. Just like Apple’s super thin laptop, the company’s new offering is just 11.9mm thin, featuring a beautiful aerospace-grade aluminum chassis. And due to its thin body and super light metal chassis, the Zenbook 3 weighs just 910 grams. So, it’s no surprise that the company is calling it the “the world’s most prestigious laptop”. This is also the company’s laptop with the best screen to body ratio of 82 percent. And for some added protection, you get Corning’s Gorilla Glass protection for the display.

But like always, striving for the thinnest laptop does have some drawbacks. For example, the new Zenbook 3 comes with just a USB Type-C port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This can reportedly be used to charge up to 60 percent in 49 minutes. But ASUS is offering a USB Type-C universal dock to add up a few other ports to the device, like standard USB, USB Type-C, HDMI, RJ45, HDMI and 3-in1 card reader.

As for the specs, it’s good enough to take on the best of the Macbook range. Zenboook 3 comes with the fast Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM on board and 1TB of PCIe based SSD. The battery inside can reportedly power the device for 9 hours on a single charge. The laptop also gets a fingerprint sensor and it is located on the top-right corner of the touchpad. Other features of the device include four speaker setup from Harman Kardon and LED backlit keys.

The Zenbook 3 comes in three color options — rose gold, royal blue and quartz grey. It starts at a price tag of $1499 for the 512GB SSD + Core i5 processor model and goes up to $1999 for the model with Core i7 and 1TB SSD.

Meanwhile, you can check out the three new ZenFone 3 models released by the company earlier today from here.

    but can it run the LATEST AAA GAMES on FHD at ULTRA SETTINGS AND 60 FPS ?!

    • balcobomber25

      Depends on the game, some will be able to be played on the lower setting but most won’t due to the lack of a proper graphics card. This really isn’t designed to be for gamers.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        damn it … my search continues :/

        • balcobomber25

          You need a gaming rig.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            nope … i need a job first :'(

          • James

            and an i7 based Microsoft Surface Book – they are not cheap though!

          • Muhammad Yasir

            why would i need a surface book ?

          • James

            Because it’s a small, light, powerful laptop and has a half decent gpu in the i7 version for playing games – isn’t that what you are after?….. but it’s pricey.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            pricey 🙁

            still , can we play PC games on it ?

          • NextHype

            then quit gaming ! 😀

          • Muhammad Yasir

            plz don’t be an ASS

          • NextHype

            OK i’ll do my best

          • Muhammad Yasir

            im in favor of gaming pc … but im poor :'( (not that poor , but being a student and all , i have to fend for myself as i can’t inconvenience the family with my rather luxurious entertainment needs)

          • NextHype

            Damn… why don’t you get an after school job @Mickey-D or whatever cheap labor place for a month or two ? Then you’ll have $500 to get your gaming PC (and a taste of slavery but hey, can’t get something for nuthing in this world).

          • Muhammad Yasir

            im ready to do slavery of all proportions but there are no good venues of Part Time Jobs in Pakistan T_T !

            plus university takes like 10 hours of my day … and then they give us assignments/projects which take up the rest of my free time… hence no way to earn my own cash :'(

          • NextHype

            Muhammad, there is a contest to win an Elephone S3 on Gizchina ! go go go !
            I promess if i win it, i’ll send it to you, but you should try it yourself too.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            aww .. that soo sweet of you !

    • illystor

      This one’s a joke, right?

      • Muhammad Yasir

        if its cheap and runs games , its GOOD !

        also , why the FK would it have an i7 if there’s no gaming power in this crap ?

  • balcobomber25

    Overall it is not a bad laptop at all for the price. Windows 10 has come a long way but I would still prefer MacOs to it and Ubuntu to both of them.
