The latest 13 inch Zenbook laptop from Asus is thin, light, and supports up to an Intel Core i7-8550U quad-core processor.

Asus says it’ll be available in the first half of the year, but the company isn’t announcing pricing until the laptop is ready to launch.

The new Asus Zenbook 13 UX331UAL is 2.2 pound laptop that also supports up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of PCIe solid state storage, and which features Harman Kardon audio.


The new Zenbook 13 is one of several new laptops from Asus this year. The company is also bringing its previously-announced Zenbook Flip 14 to the United States for $899 and up and introducing a new Asus X507 laptop with a 7th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA graphics, and support for dual storage devices.

The Zenbook Flip 14 is coming in March, while the X507 will be available sometime in the first half of the year.

Asus also plans to launch its first Windows Mixed Reality headset in the next few months, and the company is adding a Thunderbolt 3 graphics dock to its line of PC accessories.

  1. Is it just me, or does it seem like Asus is just throwing products up on the wall to see if it sticks? How many Zenbooks and Vivobooks do we need per generation? It’s getting to the point where we need a score card to keep track.

    1. It’s you. My impression is that they still don’t do have enough variety in their products, and I have trouble finding the perfect PC. (which for me would be a 14″, touch, compact with tiny bezels, has intel 8th gen core). I’m actually happy to see manufacturers throw more stuff at the wall because now i’m starting to see some choice in the category of stuff that I want to buy.

      1. They actually have that, maybe even several variations of them. Look up their Vivobook line. I believe it’s their S14 series either the S405, S406 or S410 series.

        I’d actually prefer the same without touch, internals I can upgrade and at a reasonal price. (Under $700)

    2. You need at least 5 different products to cover just the basic need. You need a sub $300 netbook. A sub $500 14″ and 15″. An 13″ ultrabook and a 15″ MBP clone for the higher price range.
      If you probably want to offer 2 in 1 options also.
