Asus has now unveiled a new spin on its ZenBook 13, which it claimed is the thinnest notebook ever that comes with a discrete graphics cards (i.e., a more powerful separate GPU which is not integrated graphics).
This Asus ZenBook 13 UX331 was unveiled at CES last January, weighing only 985g. This latest model adds in the discrete GeForce MX150 for more pixel-pushing power.
It means that despite being very trim at only 1.2kg, with a thickness of 14mm, it is slightly heftier, but easily qualifies as an Ultrabook.
The GPU is paired with the Intel Core i5-8250U processor (clocked at 1.6GHz with 3.4GHz Turbo), along with 256GB SSD storage and 8GB of system RAM.
The laptop comes with a 13.3-inch display with an ultra-thin bezel and a Full HD resolution. You will also get a USB Type-C port, along with an HDMI port, a pair of USB 3.0 connectors, a full-size backlit keyboard and microSD card reader.
Battery life is promised to be up to 14 hours, with fast-charge tech, which means the notebook can be juiced up to 60% in just 50 minutes.
