Asus is redesigning its line of ZenBooks with thinner bezels than ever before. At IFA in Berlin this week, the company revealed new 13, 14 and 15-inch models of its ZenBook lineup. The two smaller models will include Asus' new NumberPad, an LED keypad built into the TouchPad. Prices weren't revealed, but the machines will arrive in October.

The bezels are slimmer than ever before, even on the bottom of the display, and Asus claims up to a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio.

The notebooks use Intel's latest Whiskey Lake-U processors (Core i5 for the 13-inch and Core i7 for the 14 and 15-inchers). The 15-inch notebook can be configured with a GeForce MX150 or a GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q.

Additionally, each of the laptops has an infrared camera to log in with Windows Hello facial recognition and are MIL-STD810G tested for durability. They also boast an ErgoLift hinge, which puts the ZenBook's keyboard at an angle while typing. We hope to hear pricing information closer to the October launch date.
