ASUS Claims Thinnest Ultrabook Title With Zenbook

  • Thinnest netbook on market
  • Utilises B&O audio technology
  • Automatically saves files when battery low

ASUS’ latest notebook, the Zenbook, features a concentric circle design that refracts a halo of light. With a thickness of 0.28 cm at the front and 0.89cm at the rear, the unit’s exterior lines make it the thinnest Ultrabook on the market, claims ASUS.

It is designed with an instant-on feature that resumes the system in about two seconds and features standby time of up to two weeks, claims the manufacturer.

It uses the Intel 2nd generation Core processors (optimised for mobile use), SATA Revision 3.0 solid state storage (SSD), Bluetooth V4.0 and USB 3.0. ASUS has also added USB Charger+ technology, which uses the powered USB 3.0 port to recharge portable devices. To accommodate all of these technologies, ASUS engineers designed custom cooling technology using a V-shaped channel with a unique copper fin design for improved airflow and cooling.

When battery life dips below five per cent, the unit will automatically save files in progress to prevent data loss. The Zenbookutilises ASUS’ patented Super Hybrid Engine II technology, which conserves battery life and allows the Zenbookto have up to 25 per cent more battery life than other Ultrabook designs, claims the vendor.

Itis equipped with ASUS SonicMaster technology, an optimised fusion of hardware and software developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower. SonicMaster provides a wide sonic spectrum surround sound that can fill a room with jazz or the tranquil sound of a mountain stream.
