New ASUS laptop's touchpad doubles as full HD touchscreen

The new Asus ZenBook Pro features a 5.5-inch ScreenPad in replacement of its touchpad. Surrounding the display, the NanoEdge bezels measure in at just 5.9mm to provide the ZenBook S with an 85% screen-to-body ratio to turn each session into an immersive visual experience.

The ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad delivers incredible graphics horsepower with the use of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti discrete graphics processor with 4GB of GDDR5 memory.

Weighing in at just 1.2 kg (2.6 lbs) for the S13, 1.4 kg (3 lbs) for the 14-inch S14 and 1.8 kg (4 lbs) for the 15.6-inch S15, the trio of VivBooks are pretty portable as well. Both have six-core Intel Coffee Lake Core i7-8750H or Core i5-8300H processors, 15.6-inch 144Hz 1080p "IPS-level" displays, up to 32GB of RAM, with a standard GPU of GTX 1060. However, in that mode, the pad was tracking our touches as mouse pointer moves so objects on widgets in the browser or YouTube controls didn't really work. They weigh 1.8kg and 1.4kg respectively.

The ScreenPad is interesting, interactive and innovative. With 178-degree viewing angles, 10-point multi-touch support, ASUS Pen support, and Windows Ink support, the ZenBook S is a versatile device capable of serious work and play. Open one and the app will launch on the main screen, with the ScreenPad version launching simultaneously.

Asus said that future ScreenPad apps can be downloaded from the Windows Store, and more apps will feature ScreenPad functionalities as the technology and its ecosystem matures.

New Italy government wins confidence vote
But 5-Star Senator Michele Giarusso defended the choice of "the government a lot of us were waiting for". Di Maio and Salvini vetoed each other as prime minister and picked him as a compromise figure.

Both models come with the iconic spun-metal finish in Deep Dive Blue and Rose Gold colors exemplifying the ZenBook design spirit of elegance, sophistication and precision craftsmanship.

For now, it seems that Project Precog is merely a concept device, but we'll see the ScreenPad launch on 14 and 15-inch ZenBook Pros later this year. For now, the selection is mostly limited to a few basic Asus apps like a calendar, music player, and calculator, as well as the Microsoft Office suite. In concert with the hexa-core processor are a blistering fast up to 1TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD and up to 16GB of high-performance 2400MHz DDR4 RAM to provide compelling performance previously unseen for thin and light laptops effortless loading or transferring large files, datasets, and game levels.

The ZenBook S will be the first available and is only 13mm tall, weighs 1kg and features a 13.3-inch display. Priced at $1,199 and up, the ultraportable notebook will be available very soon with up to a 4K UHD NanoEdge touchscreen, supporting Alexa assistance, and lasting up to a whopping 13.5 hours between battery charges.

The UX580 also has a fingerprint sensor, two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack.

We've reached out to Asus for Canadian pricing and availability.
