Zenbook Infinity


FROM OUR SPONSOR- Continue for more content

ASUS has also unveiled its Zenbook Infinity at Computex 2013 in Taipei. Being the first laptop — let alone an Ultrabook — to boast a Gorilla Glass 3 lid, it’s able to take advantage of three times the scratch resistance than the material’s predecessor. This has allowed ASUS to achieve a maximum thickness of just 15.5mm, or about 14 percent thinner than the previous line of Zenbooks. We cant help to wonder if  the glass would survive a drop? According to the product manager, the laptop’s passed various drop tests, but only time will tell if it’s as good as he promised.

The ultraboook has an built-in touchscreen as well as a backlit keyboard. There’s also a USB 3.0 port on each side, along with an SD card slot, micro-HDMI port and a Mini DisplayPort. No word on the other specs or prices just yet as this laptop won’t be out until Q4, so stay tuned for future announcements.
