Asus introduces two ZenBooks with unique features

The company is also encouraging developers to create new apps for the new feature.

After ROG launch event yesterday which saw the unveiling of ROG Phone and several other gaming products, ASUS continues its Computex 2018 campaign with another set of new products which include the new ZenBook Pro.

ASUS VivoBook S15 and S14 will be available globally starting July 2018. Microsoft Word, for example, will give you text editing tools while Excel will give you Excel tools. Asus is also working on a sync app that will offer phone calls, notifications and phone-mirroring features on the touchpad itself. We enjoyed using the numpad feature to enter digits and seeing a comprehensive list of favorite apps that we could launch with a single touch. But just because it comes in bright colors doesn't mean it's a slacker in the power department. If you're playing a YouTube video, you get controls for that too.

Alternatively, you can extend your laptop's display to ScreenPad so you can use the ZenBook Pro in dual-display mode.

Having a second screen is not without its costs. The 14-inch model should last 12 to 13 hours without the second screen on and just 7 or 8 hours with it powered up. Weighing only 1.8kg and 1.4kg respectively, they are both powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card, a dual-storage design up to a 512GB SSD and 2TB HDD. And apart from the second screen, the ZenBook also lets you connect three external 4K monitors, two using USB-C Thunderbolt and one using HDMI connectivity. Both have six-core Intel Coffee Lake Core i7-8750H or Core i5-8300H processors, 15.6-inch 144Hz 1080p "IPS-level" displays, up to 32GB of RAM, with a standard GPU of GTX 1060. The 14-inch model is better still looking than its big brother, thanks to a decorative metal bar that appears above the keyboard, a sleek dip near the hinge and some high-tech looking exhaust ports on the back. The 15.6-inch S15 weighs only 1.8kg, while the 14-inch S14 has an overall weight of 1.4kg.

‘The Office’ actor Hugh Dane dies at 75
Dane is reported to have died May 16, with a notice posted on Los Angeles' Inner City Cultural Center Facebook page. Furthermore, he had a fair number of movies under his belt, including Bridesmaids , Little Fockers , and Joy Ride .

Available in two different sizes, both ZenBook Pro 14 and ZenBook Pro 15 can be differentiated not only through their physical sized but also physical design.

Asus is pushing the displays on the 15-inch model, which it says are its first to be Pantone validated, and the company is also claiming 132 percent sRGB coverage and 178-degree viewing angles.

Finally, the ErgoLift hinge helps to deliver a premium and immersive audio experience, certified by audio experts Harmon Kardon®, delivering cleaner sound and improved bass response thanks to the angled bottom-firing speakers and a smart amplifier that automatically identifies the maximum possible volume to ensure top-notch sound quality over a long life of operation.

VivoBook Flip 14 (TP412) is a stylish new addition to the VivoBook Flip Series of convertible Windows 10 notebooks, featuring a 360-degree-flippable display that allows this versatile device to be used in notebook, stand, tent and tablet modes, or anything in between. However, it can do a couple of things more than Apple's TouchBar. The company ditched the concept a few years later.

All of these machines are going to be released later in the year and we'll have all the updates waiting for you related to their pricing so stay tuned.
