Singapore (23 October 2017) ASUS today announced the all-new ZenBook 13 UX331, un ultra-thin and lightweight laptop with discrete graphics. The ZenBook 13 UX331 finally breaks the performance barriers created by the use of an integrated graphics system in an ultra-thin chassis. The ZenBook 13 UX331 features an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 discrete graphics chip for the highest graphics performance, and is powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core i7 processor, up to a 512GB SSD storage and a 16GB of RAM for a responsive computing experience on-the-go.

The ultra-thin and ultra-light ZenBook 13 UX331 is a mere 13.9mm thin and weighs just 1.12kg[1], with the sophisticated and elegant design values that are the hallmark of the multiple award-winning ZenBook series. The ZenBook 13 UX331 is available in Royal Blue colour with a stunning crystal-like gloss coating, featuring a tactile 2.5D-curved edges on the lid.

The ZenBook 13 UX331 has a slim bezel NanoEdge Full HD (1,980 x 1,080) wide-view display for immersive and life-like visuals, and a Harman Kardon audio system for rich, clear stereo sound. The comprehensive connectivity on the ZenBook 13 UX331 includes a USB Gen 1 Type-C (USB-C) port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port and a microSD card slot. The dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi incorporates exclusive ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology for faster and more reliable connections.
Ultra-thin and Lightweight Laptop with Discrete Graphics[2]
For the longest time, engineering constraints in a thin and light form factor have resulted in compromised graphics performance, by dictating the use of integrated graphics with shared video memory. The ZenBook 13 UX331 breaks through this graphics performance barrier by incorporating a high-performance NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 discrete graphics chip with dedicated video memory gives the ZenBook 13 UX331 effortless photo and video-editing capabilities and fast, ultra-smooth gaming performance.

Designed for effortless portability, the ZenBook 13 UX331 measures just 13.9mm thin and 1.12kg light. It's not just a superbly capable laptop — it is also a powerful style statement. Its sleek and sophisticated profile is finished in a classic Royal Blue colour with a luxurious crystal-like gloss coating created using a high-tech nano-imprinted lithography (NIL) process. Both options are further adorned with our iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish, and the edges of the lid have a smooth 2.5D contour that is sleek, stylish and superbly comfortable to hold.

Ultra-Powerful, Ultra-Portable
As well as class-leading graphics performance, the ZenBook 13 UX331 offers serious on-the-go computing power. At its heart is the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core i7 processor — which can be boosted to 4GHz when needed — along with 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD for blazingly fast storage. So whether is it creating mega-sized office documents, manipulating high-resolution photos, editing HD video, or simply taking a break with the most demanding games, the ZenBook 13 UX331 will never keep users waiting.

Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, ZenBook 13 UX331 offers the freedom of all-day battery life. A specially designed 50Wh lithium-polymer battery gives the ZenBook 13 UX331 up to 14 hours[3] of autonomy, with fast charge technology that takes just 49 minutes[4] to recharge to 60% capacity.

Incredibly Immersive and Life-like Multimedia
To deliver immersive, life-like visuals and provide the biggest screen in the least space, the ZenBook 13 UX331 has a beautiful NanoEdge display, with an ultra-thin 6.86mm bezel that gives it an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio. This 13.3-inch display fits in an ultra-compact frame, giving the ZenBook 13 UX331 a footprint smaller than many 13-inch models. Its 178° wide-view technology ensures that image quality is not degraded when viewed at extreme angles, so it is great for collaborating or entertaining. With its astonishing full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, a pixel density of 332 pixels per inch and wide 100% sRGB colour gamut, it delivers pin-sharp text, incredibly realistic imagery and ensures vivid accurate colours.
                                   
The powerful Harman Kardon-certified audio system in the ZenBook 13 UX331 features the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster technology. With its tailored mix of superior hardware — including low-distortion smart-amplifier technology that can boost volume by up to 3.5X — and cleverly designed software, the ZenBook 13 UX331 delivers the ultimate audio experience.

Uncompromised Productivity
For unrivalled on-the-go productivity, the ZenBook 13 UX331 has a full-size backlit ergonomic keyboard that optimised for comfort with 1.4mm key travel. The Windows Precision Touchpad is engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for a smooth control. It features palm-rejection technology, supports multi-touch gestures and handwriting, and a built-in fingerprint sensor that allows for a secure one-touch login via Windows Hello.                           

The ZenBook 13 UX331 is equipped with the new, reversible USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C (USB-C) port that delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10X faster than older USB 2.0 connections. There are also two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port and a microSD card reader.

The ZenBook 13 UX331 introduces the new and exclusive ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology, which reduces interference to ensure faster and more reliable dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi connections at extreme distances.[5] With a top speed of 867Mbps, it is up to 6X faster than 802.11n[6] for seamless video-streaming, smooth web-surfing and lag-free gaming.
