The new Zenbook 13, 14 and 15 feature 8th Gen Intel Core CPUs, up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics, 16GB RAM, PCIe SSDs and gigabit-class Wi-Fi. They also boast improvements when it comes to physical form factor.
As usual, ASUS say these are their most compact Zenbook series to date with ultra-slim bezels on all-sides ensuring creatives have ample screen space to work with.

The Zenbook Flip 13 and 15 series also tout the new NumberPad alongside a 360-degree ErgoLift hinge and Pantone-Validated display. Under the hood, both convertibles offer 8th-gen Intel Core processors, 16GB and SSD storage with the larger Flip 15 also offering discrete graphics in select variants.
