All the mentioned ZenBooks packs in a discrete graphics in the form of either a Nvidia NV MX150 on the 13- and 14-inch models or a GTX 1050 Max-Q inside on the ZenBook 15. With the near bezel-less display, the webcam had been crammed into each frame is an ultrathin webcam with a four-element lens.

The Taiwan based company has also introduced the new ZenBook Flip in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes. Unlike the ZenBooks, the Flip 13 can be flipped around to be used as a tablet. It comes with integrated graphics, with only the 15-inch model sporting Nvidia’s GTX 1050 Max-Q.

Furthermore, both the ZenBook and ZenBook Flip features a 3D infrared camera that will let you log in with your face even in dim lighting (according to the company), apparently empowering Windows Hello. Unlike most of the laptops, the ZenBook range will have Amazon Alexa support along with Cortana (of course).

According to the company, the ZenBook and ZenBook Flip are tested to military MIL-STD 810G standard and optimized for quiet operation and connectivity, with super fast MU-MIMO Wi-Fi 802.11ac. Not just that, it also continues the ZenBook Pro’s trend with the ErgoLift hinge, which raises the keyboard slightly when the laptop is open, allowing for a more comfortable typing experience.

The highlighted part of the laptop is that the ZenBook doesn’t have a secondary display in the touchpad like the ZenBook Pro does, so, the ZenBook’s touch pad doubles up as a number pad in the 13- and 14-inch versions. The 15-inch doesn’t need that feature, as it already has a physical number pad.

Much like ZenBook, the Flip 13 also features the number pad feature, but not on the 15-inch Flip. There is no word on the pricing and availability. We will update accordingly.
