It’s not just about style. It’s about performance. ASUS ZENBOOK Touch has the thinness of the original ZENBOOK powered by Intel Core i7 third generation processor. The advanced Ultrabook features a multiple touch display with Full HD resolution using IPS technology to provide quality images from any angle.
Portability is enhanced with a slim body measuring only 3mm at its front and 9mm at its rear plus the light weight with just 1.1 Kg for the UX21 model and 1.3 Kg for the UX31 model. The concentric circles with metal finish represent the infinite capability and harmony of using this Ultrabook. It uses aluminum to provide durability for a delicate-looking body, and new processes and tools have been applied to create this new challenging design including aluminum hairlines being applied to curved parts.
To accomplish the strong but sleek appearance, new mounting methods have been developed that reduce usage of screws by 12% inspired by handcrafting of wrist watches. The bright and clear HD display is featured on 450cd/m2 panel, the first on an Ultrabook that makes both dark and light areas clearer. The compactness does not compromise the quality of its images.
Everybody wants it done efficiently and as soon as possible. The spontaneous behavior of this Ultrabook and the always on feature create its advantages. It can be kept on standby and resume function in just two seconds with its built-in ASUS technology Super Hybrid Engine II. The technology enables ZENBOOK Touch to stand by for a maximum of two weeks. If the battery level goes down to 5% as monitored by real-time battery life detection, the instant on function backs up your data automatically to SSD to eliminate risk of data loss caused by battery drain.
The charge of the battery is kept 25% longer with Battery Saving Mode. You can manage your battery usage through PowerWiz Utility that gives accurate information about the charge under specific usage condition. It performs fast and efficiently while keeping your energy consumption at a minimum and keeping heat down. It carries SATA 6GB/s solid state drives to support your data transfers. It also comes with USB 3.0 that is faster than USB 2.0.
ZENBOOK Touch applies V-shaped air channel for its thermal and cooling system by increasing air flow. It also uses beryllium copper alloy parts to handle heat better. Heat is directed away from the case through copper fins. It keeps running on lower temperature to sustain longer use and stability. So even though it is powerful and compact, it is backed up by a sufficient cooling system.
Good sound quality is enabled by ASUS SonicMaster technology. It provides high quality audio output as a product of the teamwork of Bang & Olufsen ICEpower and ASUS Golden Ear team. Its custom design features oversized shielded speaker magnets that provide better bass and greater impact, an oval voice coil that produces vocal clarity and aluminum rings that reduce vibration and secure the speakers. Smart Dynamic Range Control or DRC lets you experience lifelike sound. The aluminum body of ZENBOOK Touch enhances the sound by insulating and conducting sound simultaneously.
