Asus has also announced new ZenBook Flip 13 and Flip 15 convertible laptops, which are 10% smaller than previous models, which Asus claims makes them the most compact convertible laptops in the world.

ASUS has finally lifted the veil on a series of ASUS ZenBooks, just a couple of days after the announcement of the ZenBook Pro 15. "It is our aspiration to empower everyone to unleash their creative power with innovation that combine style and elegance with performance and state-of-the-art technology".

"We are excited to have worked closely with ASUS on the incredible lineup of new PCs featuring the latest 8th Gen Intel Core™ processors", said Chris Walker, Vice President of Client Computing at Intel.

Coming to the new ZenBook S (UX391FA), it is a premium 13.3-inch ultraportable Windows 10 laptop.

Asus on Thursday announced new laptops in its ZenBook portfolio at its Media Day event at IFA 2018.

ZenBook 13, 14 and 15 introduce the stunning new frameless ASUS NanoEdge display, with ultraslim bezels on all four sides for an unrivaled up to 95% screen-to-body ratio and a near-borderless viewing experience.

The ZenBook 13 and ZenBook 14 can also come with Asus' exclusive NumberPad, which turns the touchpad into a full-size LED-illuminated numeric keypad. While the smaller of the two includes Intel's integrated UHD Graphics 620, the larger one can be equipped NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q GPU.

The 13-inch, 14-inch and 15-inch ZenBooks have the same size display in a far smaller body than past ZenBooks. All three laptops come with a 3D infrared camera that allows rapid face login via Windows Hello.

Both the ZenBook Flip 13 and Flip 15 models have been given a bezel-stripping makeover, while also having the latest eighth-generation Intel laptop processors slipped under their bonnets and the larger 15in model getting access to a Nvidia graphics card.

ASUS has unveiled a new lineup of ZenBooks, and perhaps now more than ever, the focus is on design. The ZenBook 15, meanwhile, is big enough to accommodate a number pad in its traditional location. In terms of design, the laptops feature an ErgoLift hinge mechanism that tilts the keyboard for comfortable typing. Also, the display is Pantone Validated to ensure colour accuracy.

An IR camera is on board with support for Windows Hello, and voice recognition can be used to interact with both Cortana and Amazon Alexa.

The neat exterior design really represents a shift up for the ZenBook range, but the pricing looks to remain reasonable, with the standard ZenBooks starting at $899 and the Flip starting at $1,637. New apps include Adobe Sign, Handwriting and SpeechTyper.

The new ZenBook laptops are built to military-grade (MIL-STD-810G) standard and deliver claimed battery life of between 14 hours (ZenBook 13 and 14, 50Wh battery) and 16 hours (ZenBook 15, 73Wh battery).

The Asus Zen AiO is an all-in-one (AIO) that is said to have been designed for content creators and graphics professionals. They've all also got a choice between Intel's Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U for processors, and a choice between 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 RAM.
