Although they were initially announced all the way back at Computex, ASUS held a casual event in NYC this past Wednesday (Oct. 5) to officially launch an array of new products, including the ZenBook 3, ZenWatch 3, ZenPhone 3, and Transformer Pro 3 and Mini. We’ve got some initial coverage of all of those products here at HotHardware if you’d like some additional background on the full line-up, including hands-on video of the latest ZenBook and smartwatch. However, we couldn’t wait to dive in a little deeper with the ZenBook 3 for a couple of reasons.

Not everyone was convinced, however, given the notebook’s meager performance, single USB-C port that was used both for charging and expansion, and $1,299 entry point. The 2016 update didn’t move the bar much further, which is giving PC manufacturers the perfect opportunity to take shots at Apple’s premium notebook. That’s where Asus comes into play with its new ZenBook 3, which is a prime example of “Anything you can do I can better.” The ZenBook 3 measures in at just 11.9 millimeters thick, undercutting the MacBook which is 13.1mm thick. And while the MacBook weighs in at an incredibly lightweight... Read more...
