Award-Winning New ASUS Zenbook Ultrabook™ Series Now Available in Singapore

Singapore, 12 December, 2013 — ASUS today announced the availability of the latest addition of its award-winning Ultrabook™ series, ASUS Zenbook UX302. Available in stores from 20 December, the latest flagship Ultrabook sports a beautiful sleek design and a scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 cover and a full HD IPS display resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. It will be retailing at S$1,698 and S$1,998 for the i5 and i7 models respectively.

Available for pre-order since 28 November, the latest Zenbook features the renowned Zenbook hallmark – a metallic “spun” design – with a layer of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 coated with sheer high gloss finish that makes the device as hard-wearing as it is stunning.

Another premium flagship Ultrabook model, the ASUS Zenbook UX301, which sports a stunning 2,560 x 1,440 quad high-definition (WQHD) IPS display, is available for pre-orders at all ASUS brand stores and authorised stores.

Incredible Art of Glass Design
Extending the style from the popular first generation of the Zenbook Ultrabook™ Series, the new Zenbook continues to maintain the taper outline design and aluminium spun polish. Available in Sapphire Blue colour, the new Zenbook UX301 and UX302 come with a luxury scratch-resistant crystal glass design with diamond cut details and hairline metallic “spun” finish on the glass cover.

Premium Specifications for Astonishing Performance
Available in 2,560 x 1,440 WQHD and 1,920 x 1,080 full HD resolutions for Zenbook UX301 and UX302 respectively, the new Zenbook provides sharp images and text viewed on the 13.3-inch display. With the IPS display technology, this ensures rich and accurate colour with wide 178-degree viewing angles while the 10-point capacitive touch provides smooth and responsive fingertip control with Windows 8 on the Ultrabook.

Powered by the latest Intel® Core™ processors for seamless multi-tasking performance and outstanding energy efficiency, the new Zenbook is able to provide up to 8 hours of battery life.

With up to 128GB SSD, the Zenbook UX301 features a high-end 28W Core i7-4558U dual-core option and Intel® Iris™ graphics 5100 that make light work of even the most demanding applications; while the Zenbook UX302 sports discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 730M graphic card with Optimus technology for incredible visuals at high resolution and detail settings. With up to 750GB HDD and 16GB SSD of hybrid storage in the slim design profile of the Zenbook UX302, the new Zenbook proves to be a force to reckon for the productivity road warriors.

Amazing Sound in Elegant Craftsmanship
One of the notable improvements in the new Zenbook is the larger chamber size of the 2.5W speakers at 70 cc, which provides higher sound quality and greater sound volume. The new Zenbook also features the exclusive ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, which generates deeper bass and clearer vocals than other bulkier standard notebooks.
