ASUS ZenBook S: The winsome Macbook Air contender

by | Jun 5, 2018 | Laptops

ASUS is killing it in the gaming department. But that doesn’t mean the company will let up on everything else, especially not with regular consumers. And that’s what the new ultraportable, the ASUS Zenbook S, signals.

The new laptop, which comes in a gorgeous finish (available in two colors, but let’s face it, that Burgundy Red has snatched every follicle of your weave), but is built with military-grade toughness. In terms of internals, the Zenbook S comes packing, too: with an 8th-Gen Intel Core processor with up to 16GB of memory and up to 1TB of SSD. If you’re in the market for a luscious-looking but capable workstation, this might be worth checking out.
