The ZenBook 3 is designed with quality precision to create a new level of refinement in laptop technology. With only 11.9mm of thickness, ASUS have managed to innovate the 3mm hinge mechanism while maintaining its sturdiness. 4 Harman Kardon surround audio systems cover the keyboard panel and to further place emphasis on the extravagant aluminum body styling, ASUS has used a special 2-phase anodizing process, resulting in à beautiful golden lining on the edges as well the logo.

The ZenBook 3 is powered by an Intel® Core™ i7 7500U Processor and operated by Windows 10, using 16GB LPDDR3 2133MHz SDRAM Onboard Memory and 1TB PCIE Gen3 SSD, ensuring a smooth and powerful performance. The whole screen is covered with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 and equipped with 12.5" (16:9) LED backlit FHD (1920x1080) Glare 60Hz Panel with 72% NTSC, supported by Integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 and also with a built in VGA Web Camera.

To reduce heat because of the thin build and the i7 processor, ASUS has created a new cooling system using a crystal polymer liquid fan, which is only 0.3mm and copper pipe resulting in an efficient cooling process and minimizing noise. The 9-hour usage is made possible by a high capacity 40Wh lithium-polymer battery and the new charging technology is able to fill 60% battery capacity within a mere 49 minutes. In the connectivity sector, ASUS ZenBook 3 features energy efficient Bluetooth® 4.1 and an integrated 802.11 AC (WIDI Support) Wi-Fi system which is compatible with all HDTV-WiDi, making multitasking less troublesome, an audio jack and a USB 3.1 Type C port are also included.
