Asus has announced its new ZenBook 3, an 11.9-milimeter device it’s calling the “the world’s most prestigious laptop.”
Asus Chairman Johnny Shih detailed the ZenBook 3 on stage at Computex, comparing it directly to MacBooks, promising a device that weighed less than Apple’s lightest laptops, and a processor “two times faster than MacBook.”
Shih said the ZenBook 3 was “the best of both” MacBook and MacBook Air, being lighter and thinner than the former, and more powerful than the latter.
The ZenBook 3 will also feature the company’s highest screen-to-body ratio of any of its laptops. A ZenBook 3 with an i7 processor and a 1TB solid state drive will be available for $1,999, or $1,499 with a 512GB SSD.
