Asus has launched a new range of ZenBook notebooks in Taipei, Taiwan yesterday. "These new VivoBook and ZenBook models are slim and stylish, and the new ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad gives people a new way to interact with entertainment and productivity apps, such as Skype, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Edge".
Asus has unveiled several new ZenBook and VivoBook laptop models at Computex 2018. However, with the newly announced Asus ZenBook Pro 15 ScreenPad, Asus was thinking much more left field. The VivoBook Flip 14 is also equipped with a touchpad-mounted fingerprint sensor and also supports the ASUS Pen active stylus for accurate input and writing.
Also on Tuesday, Asus took the wraps off a dual-screen convertible laptop called Project Precog, which has a full second display in place of where the usual keyboard and touchpad reside.
The Asus ZenBook S is an interesting new laptop, especially in terms of exterior design.
Since Windows wasn't designed with this kind of configuration in mind, Asus has had to add functionality to the new touchscreen, and by all accounts it's done a good job. But that's not all because this particular display also features a colour calibration Delta E of less than 2 and can display 100% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut.

While the ScreenPad is innovative, Asus is not the first company to offer configurable touch controls. Both the notebooks are quite portable too, with the VivoBook S15 and VivoBook S14 weighing at 1.8kgs and 1.4kgs each. Some of these devices pack cool features like 8th Gen Intel Core CPUs, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, 4K UHD NanoEdge touchscreens, and more.

The 15.6-inch S15 weighs only 1.8kg, while the 14-inch S14 has an overall weight of 1.4kg.
The ZenBook 14, on the other hand, comes with a smaller 14-inch full-HD display, and is powered by Intel's 8th generation Core i7 quad-core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB SSD.
