Asus plans to unveil a new ultrabook at Computex later this month. The company says the Asus Zenbook Infinity will be 14 percent thinner than other notebooks in the Zenbook line, thanks to new materials.
The Asus Zenbook Infinity has an aluminum and glass case, and features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the lid and around the keyboard. Gorilla Glass is a durable, damage-resistant type of glass which we usually see on smartphone and tablet displays, but it’s not unheard of for PC makers to use glass on thin and light notebooks these days.
Asus says the Zenbook Infinity will measure just 15.5mm (about 0.61 inches) thick, making it one of the thinnest ultrabooks around.
Unfortunately, that’s about all Asus is saying about the notebook at the moment. There’s no word on the screen size, processor, or other features — although I’d be surprised if PC makers introduced many notebooks at Computex this year that don’t feature Intel Haswell or next-generation AMD processors.
Asus also recently unveiled a new ultrabook with a 15.6 inch, 2880 x 1620 pixel display in Germany.
