Asus has announced new ZenBook laptops in India and these laptops come at different price points, different configurations, and sizes. The newly launched ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580), ZenBook S (UX391), and ZenBook 13 (UX331) come with new processors, Thunderbolt support and a dedicated GPU.
Asus ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580)
The Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 has an Intel 8th generation Core i9 processor which is a hexacore chip and the CPU is coupled with a GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPU.

The ZenBook Pro 15 also has 16GB RAM and a gigabit-class WiFi. In the audio department, the laptop comes with a Harmon Kardon certified audio system. It also comes with a ScreenPad, a 5.5-inch Full HD touchscreen. This is Asus’s new technology that combines a touchscreen with the touchpad.
