Asus' New Zenbook Packs 2560 x 1440 Touchscreen Display
Asus newest addition features an exterior reinforced with Gorilla Glass 3.
Asus first teased its Zenbook Infinity with Gorilla Glass at Computex this past summer and is this week giving the ultrabook a proper introduction at IFA. It's real name is the Asus Zenbook UX301 and it's a pretty sexy looking laptop.
Asus is calling it the most desirable ultrabook around, and it's certainly a contender as far as looks are concerned. The Zenbook UX301 features the same metallic 'spun' metal aesthetic from previous Zenbook models with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Aside from lending a high-gloss finish, the Gorilla glass adds to the durability of the laptop.
Gorilla Glass aside, the Zenbook's touch sensitive IPS display measures 13.3 inches and boasts a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Under the hood you're looking at Intel's 4th generation Haswell CPUs, optional 512 GB SSD, optional Geforce GT 730M graphics, 802.11ac WiFi, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, a backlit keyboard with automatic light level control, and multi-touch touchpads with support for Windows 8 gestures.
Pricing and availability aren't out just yet, but the laptop will apparently be available before the end of this year.
