Asus has introduced six new ZenBooks at IFA in Berlin. The new laptops have compact, lightweight design and what the company described as "productivity enhancing features" for business and private users, including a new dual-touchpad.

ZenBook 13 (UX333), ZenBook 14 (UX433) and ZenBook 15 (UX533) run on 8-generation Core i5 or i7 processors with up to 16GB of RAM, 1TB of PCIe SSD storage and discreet NvidiaGeForce graphics (MX 150 on 13 and 14-inch models, GTX 1050 Max-Q on ZenBook 15). All three laptops come with a 3D infrared camera that allows you to log in quickly through Windows Hello. The new design also has ultra-slim NanoEdge frames, which provide screen-to-body ratio of up to 95 percent.
The 13-inch and 14-inch models make up the lack of a plate on the keyboard by incorporating an LED illuminated license plate in the touchpad. SE: 20 pro tips to make Windows 10 work as you want (free PDF)

While Flip 13 is limited to an integrated GPU, Flip 15 has a discreet Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q chipset, plus the possibility of a PANTONE-approved 4K UHD display feature that makes this model suitable for graphics professionals.  Flip 13 features dual-function touchpad with built-in LED-illuminated NumberPad, both models have the infrared Windows Hello camera, and it's an optional Full-HD camera with world-wide design designed for use with Windows 10's Mixed Reality Viewer.
