ASUS has presented in Ukraine a new model VivoBook and ZenBook

ASUS today held the event, which demonstrated the new laptops, presents a couple of weeks ago at Computex 2018.

During the event the journalists presented the updated line of VivoBook (models S430 and S530), the ZenBook’s (model UX391) and ZenBook Pro (UX580GE).

The new generation of laptops VivoBook is available in three versions: 13″, 14″ and 15″. Our market will initially be available in 14″ and 15″ models, the 13-inch version will be available later this year. VivoBook 2018 became one of the most striking notebooks at Computex last, largely due to its design: the device is available in several colors, and the material of the case resembles a woven texture.


The new VivoBook has become the mechanism of the ErgoLift. When opening the top lid is lifted and the lower part, forming a slight slope (3.5 degrees). Thanks to more convenient to type the text (such as the slope is in a normal keyboards), but it also contributes to a more effective cooling system. Also worth noting is the thin frame around the display (display NanoEdge), which adds glamor to the appearance of the laptop.

As for performance, the laptops VivoBook line equipped with a Full HD display, Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors, optional discrete graphics up to NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2 GB VRAM, up to 16 GB of RAM and HDD capacity up to 2TB (8GB SSD cache), or a bunch of SSD + HDD (256 GB + 2 TB). Interfaces available USB Type-A 3.1, two USB Type-A 2.0, USB Type-C 3.1 (no support for Thunderbolt 3), microSD card reader, HDMI, 3.5 mm audio Jack. In some versions there is also a fingerprint scanner. I note that the laptops are amenable to upgrade, for example, in the low configuration with one HDD available free slot for M2 SSD.

All laptops come preloaded with Windows 10. The cost of the new VivoBook starts at $799.

Next was presented the new ZenBook’S UX391. The product is made in the signature for the line of ZenBook design: metal body, beveled edges, and concentric circles. The laptop is equipped with 13.3″ display, while it weighs only 1 kg and the thickness is 12.9 mm. by the Way, ASUS decided to add a little color accents and ZenBook’s, so the model will be available in red color (Burgundy Red). The presentation of this option, unfortunately, was not, but everyone who was at Computex 2018, noted that in red it looks very cool.

ZenBook’s also, as new VivoBook, can boast of a mechanism ErgoLift and NanoEdge display. In our market UX391 will be equipped with a matte Full HD panel without the touch layer, Intel Core i5/i7, integrated Intel graphics UHD 620 Graphics, up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB SSD. Of connection interfaces available, only three USB Type-C (all three support Power Delivery, two ports on the right side to support an Thunderbolt 3).

The cost of the ZenBook’S UX391 starts from $1699. In the sale of the laptop will appear in August of this year. Included with the device will go on the envelope cover and a special dock with various connectors.

And for dessert, we were shown the flagship ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE. This notebook made a splash at Computex 2018, because ASUS decided to experiment and equipped it skryptom – 5.5″ display, which is installed instead of the touchpad. ScreenPad is a sort of a symbiosis of the usual touchpad and Tabara the MacBook Pro. It can perform familiar commands are supported multitouch gestures, but also in his shell ScreenPad Launcher, you can install the extensions. For example, the block Num-keys, calculator or music player. In programs such as Microsoft Word to scrimped displays the text editing tools, and if you install a special extension for Google Chrome, you will be able to display YouTube videos on a small screen. The company wants to further third-party developers have created applications for ScreenPad, thereby expanding its capabilities.

But that’s not all the surprises that hides ZenBook Pro. The laptop is available in configurations with six-core processor Intel Core i9 and NVIDIA GeForce Ti GTX1050. This option will really appreciate users who need a productive and together with the mobile computer. For example, professionals working with graphics. For them, the advantage is also that ZenBook Pro is equipped with 15.6″ display with a resolution of up to 4K with the factory calibration (PANTONE). It covers up to 100% Adobe RGB ratio color accuracy is ΔE < 2.

Of the other characteristics I note the presence of the audio system from Harman/Kardon, wide range of interfaces (two USB Type-A 3.1, two USB Type-C with Thunderbolt support, HDMI, microSD card reader, 3.5 mm audio Jack) and a fingerprint scanner. Another interesting solution was the upgrading of the function keys. Now by default, they are activated and you do not need to clamp Fn to their work. If you want to use the old version, you can press Fn + Esc and on the first press will activate the keys F1-F8.

The price of ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE starts at $2250.
