We estimated ahead of time that Asus would come to the Computex show in her home market as she shoots all the guns she has, which is indeed what happened. The company gave the opening signal to the most prominent hardware show in the field and did so with a flood of new and interesting products - including one laptop called simply ZenBook 3 and threatening to steal the spotlight from another popular Book Model in the market, Apple's new MacBook, Launched last year after a break of several years.
The ZenBook 3 has an 12.5 IPS screen and an 1080p resolution with Gorilla Glass 4 And thin margins Which help its physical size be even more modest than what is expected of a mobile in this size category, combined with chips core i5 andcore i7 is a dual-core U-family of the Skylake generation (a thermal envelope of 15W,core M).
These base data are combined with LPDDR3 memories up to 16GB, drives SSD 512GB, 256GB or 1TB (the two largest models with PCI-Express connectivity and transfer speeds up to 1,700 megabytes per second), system Windows 10, of course, is a large touch panel with glass Fingerprint scanner Built-in Herman / Cardon audio system and a built-in 40 watt-hour battery, which guarantees up to nine hours of work between charging and charging - when charging is relatively quick, with a promise of 60 percent capacity in fifty minutes.
The ZenBook 3's specification sounds very reasonable, but it gets really impressive when you consider its sleek metal casing, which is only 11.9 millimeters thick at the most work point and weighs 910 grams - data that sounded just as imaginative in the world of Windows PCs two years ago, but Today is fast becoming the new standard for manufacturers.
Bassus also boasts a keyboard with a click depth of 0.8 millimeters - twice that of theMacbook, For more comfortable and "tangible" typing
Asus's ultrabook is trying to be better than the MacBook in all parameters, and it succeeds in this task on paper, although unfortunately on the way there it is also adopting one of the least positive elements of the model from Dark - Essay USB Only one fast Type C, which functions as both the charging point and connecting information transfer and transferring image of the computer. Basus will offer a mini external docking station that will "deploy" the single connector for several connections to each ZenBook 3 buyer, but it is unclear what this restrictive resolution means - if there is room for a single Type C connection in the model, why not offer one or two more Is this to allow external charging and connection?
Aside from this complaint, we don't have too many bad things to say about the ZenBook 3 - it will be available in gray, dark blue or gilded (all with light gold embellishments), and in three different models: Basic with Core i5-6200U chip, RAM 4GB and fast 1,866MT / s and drive SSD Based on 256GB 1,000GB controller, base model with Core i7-6500U processor, 16GB RAM and 2,133MT / s speed and 512GB PCI-Express drive, which is undoubtedly the most relevant offer in the price tag of 1,500 USD , And a top model that will be the same as the intermediate model but with a drive SSD Based 1TB PCI-Express and a massive price tag of 2,000 USD, designed primarily for consumers who are not aware of market prices,SSD The latest.
The ZenBook 3 models should be available in markets around the world in the coming months, and we hope that the costs in Israel will be close to those recommended in the previous paragraph, and not only those aimed at oligarchs.
