ASUS is a leading company driven by innovation and commitment and is dedicated to creating ingenious products for today and tomorrow’s smart life. Disclosed at Computex 2018, ASUS ZenBook Pro is a new introduction to the ASUS’ premium laptop range. It comes with an innovative new feature: a smartphone-sized screen in place of the touchpad. The high-performance laptop now delivers performance in a compact and supremely elegant design.
Touchpad innovation with ScreenPad
Touchpads have been a vital part of laptops after being introduced in 1992 but since then there hasn’t been much innovation in their display and use. For this reason, ASUS introduced the ZenBook Pro 15 with a ScreenPad which has a 5.5-inch full HD display. The ScreenPad can be turned into app launcher, calculator, calendar or numeric keypad and has a 1920×1080 resolution. It also has support for popular apps such as YouTube and Spotify with a built-in music player. Moreover, ASUS has worked with Microsoft to develop office integrations for the ScreenPad. You can, therefore, access popular professional applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. ScreenPad is ‘the world’s first smart touchpad’ as stated by ASUS.
It has an elegant finish and its precision crafted, solid aluminum body features the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid. It comes in a magnificent Deep Dive Blue color scheme with contrasting Rose Gold diamond cut edges.
Astounding audiovisual performance
The ZenBook Pro 15 comes with 4K UHD NanoEdge display with an amazing resolution of up to 3840×2160 pixels which is four times more than full HD. It has 100% Adobe RGB and 132% sRGB coverage which makes it capable of delivering incredibly accurate and natural looking colors. It is equipped with 178° wide view technology and therefore allows users to enjoy a perfect picture even at acute viewing angles.
The ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad delivers stunning audio performance because of its Harman Kardon-certified ASUS SonicMaster sound system. Furthermore, it features high-quality speakers powered by a smart amplifier for sound that is 1.4 times louder than the previous version of ZenBook Pro.
Asus Ultrafast Connections
For ultrafast connections, the ZenBook Pro 15 comes with two USB-C ports which include the latest Thunderbolt 3 technology. Thunderbolt 3 has 40 Gbps data transfer speeds and also supports power delivery and 4K UHD external displays. It has a full-sized HDMI port that allows it to be conveniently connected to TVs and projectors. Additionally, with speeds up to 1734 Mbps the dual-band 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi allows smooth streaming of online videos and stable network connections.
