Singapore (December 7, 2012) — The new Windows 8 ZENBOOK™ Touch, which combines the award-winning stunning slim design with a 10-point touch function, will be available in Singapore starting December 8 at S$2,498. Singapore will lead to launch the new Windows 8 ZENBOOK Touch model.
Providing the finest touch technology for more natural and rewarding interaction, the ZENBOOK Touch offers perfectly-tuned technology to create better, more enjoyable and fulfilling lifestyles. The world’s most outstanding and advanced Ultrabook™, ZENBOOK Touch possess the same razor-thin design as the original award-winning ZENBOOK™.
Available with a powerful 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, the new 13.3” ZENBOOK Touch is a perfect balance of style and performance. ZENBOOK Touch also features impressive specifications that include capacitive full HD 10-point touch all-glass display with instinctive touch, fast SSD storage, true-to-life sound with the exclusive SonicMaster audio technology co-developed with Bang & Olufsen®, IPS display panel for a brilliant image with rich colours that looks incredible from every angle.
Built for an unmitigated HD multimedia in a lean and efficient form factor, ZENBOOK Touch employs the powerful 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, which can boast up to 3.0GHz of clocking speed with Turbo Technology. With powerful integrated HD 4000 graphics, 4GB RAM onboard and enhanced with fast SSD storage of 256GB, it enables improved performance with a reduced power draw. Dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 offer high-performance wireless connectivity, while both USB 3.0 ports offer full support for the latest high-speed external storage devices and rapid mobile device recharging. ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology also gives ZENBOOK Touch longer battery life too, and up to two weeks’ standby time with two-second resume from hibernation.
Intuitive high-end multimedia enjoyment
The one-piece chiclet backlit keyboards that automatically respond to ambient light levels and large highly responsive multi-touch touchpads make ZENBOOK Touch the perfect productivity tool. To foster greater ease of use and accessibility, the touchpads incorporate the ASUS Smart Gesture technology, which encourage smooth haptic inputs that guarantee a more enhanced user experience with the touch-powered device. In addition, the capacitive 10-point touch all-glass full HD display is also featured on the ZENBOOK Touch for intuitive fingertip control with the new Windows 8, and a quick and easy way to work with large multimedia libraries. This is further enhanced by the incorporation of IPS technology, which gives a bright, vibrant image with accurate colours and 178° wide viewing angle.
ZENBOOK Touch is ideally suited to entertainment too. Co-developed with Bang & Olufsen® ICEpower, ZENBOOK Touch features the exclusive ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, generating powerful sound with wider range, deeper bass and clearer vocals. Although the new ZENBOOK Touch is 13.3” in size, it generates a more powerful and immersive sound than that offered by much bulkier standard notebooks, thus delivering life-like audio experiences in every way possible.
Finely crafted design
The beautiful slender profile of ZENBOOK Touch is the result of intense research and development into sophisticated engineering techniques inspired by those used to create high-precision mechanical timepieces. The unique ‘spun-metal’ finish of the ZENBOOK Touch lid alone requires a 32-step manufacturing process, and the finely crafted aluminium case features a combination of gentle curves and a contour that narrows to a mere 3mm. With its stunning design and incredible performance, ZENBOOK Touch is a perfectly balanced ultra-portable that one should not miss.
