Recently at the CES 2018, ASUS showed off its ridiculously thin ZenBook 13. However, it was missing one key component – a dedicated GPU. The company has now fixed the issue and released a new variant of the UltraBook with a discrete graphics card.
The ASUS ZenBook 13 UX331 features a 13.3-inch FullHD (1920 x 1080p) IPS touchscreen display and the laptop measures 12.2 x 8.5 x 0.47-0.55” with a weigh of just 2.47 lbs. The laptop is powered by an Intel Core i5-8250U processor and 8GB of RAM. It has 256GB of SSD storage and now features a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 2GB GDDR5 graphics unit. This new addition will give the consumers some extra performance in productivity and gaming on the world’s thinnest laptop.
The ZenBook 13 sports a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port along with two USB 3.0 ports and a microSD card reader. Other internals includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a 50Wh lithium-polymer battery that delivers up to 14 hours of runtime and charges up to 60% in just 49 minutes. The Ultrabook is available for purchase for $999 from the company’s website.
