Message Text: ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih on Tuesday unveiled the ZENBOOK that fuses design and high performance at a global launch event in New York along with Intel Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sales and Marketing Group, Tom Kilroy.

The ASUS ZENBOOK features a silver exterior panel, a thickness of 0.11" at the front and 0.35" at the rear, making it the thinnest Ultrabook on the market.

ASUS' UX21 and UX31 Zenbook will go on sale in the US on October 12, starting at $999 for the 11.6-inch UX21 and $1,099 for the 13.3-inch UX31. While the 11-incher has 1366 x 768 resolution, the 13-inch model steps up to 1600 x 900.

The ZENBOOK is designed with an instant-on feature that resumes the system in about 2 seconds and features standby times up to 2 weeks, which is four times more than the industry standard. The ZENBOOK also uses the latest Intel 2nd generation Core processors (optimized for mobile use), SATA Revision 3.0 solid state storage (SSD), Bluetooth V4.0 and USB 3.0. ASUS has also added USB Charger+ technology, which uses the powered USB 3.0 port to recharge portable devices in a fraction of the time it would normally take. To accommodate all of these technologies, ASUS engineers designed custom cooling technology using a V-shaped channel with a unique copper fin design for improved airflow and cooling. When battery life dips below 5 percent, the ZENBOOK will automatically save files in progress to prevent data loss.

The ZENBOOK utilizes ASUS? patented Super Hybrid Engine II technology, which intelligently conserves battery life.

Each ZENBOOK is equipped with ASUS SonicMaster technology, an optimized fusion of hardware and software developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower. SonicMaster provides a wide sonic spectrum surround sound that can fill a room with smooth jazz or the tranquil sound of a mountain stream.

The ZENBOOK will be available for order in North America starting on Oct. 12, with prices starting at $999 (suggested MSRP).
