For the professionals, you can easily work on the move  thanks to the lightweight design measuring just 12.9mm thin, weighing only 1.1kg, and the 9 hours battery life. Providing the power in this little machine is the aforementioned Intel® Core™ i7 providing up to 16GB of ultra-fast, power-saving memory – while two USB-C ports that incorporate the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 technology to boost productivity. Thunderbolt™ 3 supports data transfers at up to 40 Gbps, which is twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt™ 2 and 8 times faster than USB 3.0. Tech speak translated, The Zenbook 3 Deluxe is all about power and speed – with this kind of power there is no limit to what you can achieve.

For the lovers of all things luxe – you cannot look past the thoughtful and eye-catching design of the Zenbook. The perfect curves of the all-aluminum case are carved from a single block of metal that then goes through a 40-step process to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish with its lustrous, silky sheen.
