Design

Enduring elegance, timeless style

ZenBook 13 is not just a superbly capable laptop — it's also a powerful style statement. Its sleek and sophisticated profile is finished in your choice of two gorgeous color options — classic Slate Grey, or sumptuous Royal Blue with a luxurious crystal-like gloss coating created using a high-tech nano-imprinted lithography process. Both options are further adorned with our iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish. 

 

 

 Reflect your own style

 The Royal Blue version of ZenBook 13 features an added enhancement to our iconic spun-metal finish: a stunning crystal-like glossy coating. This is created using an advanced technique known as nano-imprint lithography (NIL), which produces a deep, mirror-like finish that turns ZenBook 13 into a breathtaking work of art. Additionally, the edges of ZenBook 13 have a smooth 2.5D contour, so it looks sleek and stylish, as well as being superbly comfortable to hold.
 

NanoEdge Touchscreen

 See more, do more!

 To give you the biggest screen in the least space, ZenBook 13 has a beautiful NanoEdge touchscreen*, with an ultrathin 6.86mm bezel that gives it an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio. With no distracting bezel, you'll feel more immersed in your tasks. This amazing 13.3-inch 4K UHD* touchscreen fits in an ultra-compact frame, giving ZenBook 13 a footprint smaller than many 13-inch models. And its 178° wide-view technology ensures that image quality isn't degraded when viewed at extreme angles, so it's great for collaborating or entertaining.

Discrete Graphics

The world's thinnest laptop with
discrete graphics

 Due to their limited internal space, many ultrathin laptops use integrated graphics chips that share system memory and offer only a basic level of performance.

This gives ZenBook 13 effortless photo- and video-editing capabilities and fast, ultra-smooth gaming performance.
