ASUS recommends Windows 8.
While compact and light, the ZENBOOK™ never misses a beat with amazing technology that offers the fastest, most efficient and most breathtaking experience in its class.
All-new 2nd generation Intel® Core™ CPUs come equipped with energy-efficient power that pushes multitasking and multimedia forward to new levels of excitement. These multi-core processors keep energy consumption and heat down, so ASUS ZENBOOK™ performs better in all situations.
ASUS ZENBOOK™ models ship with SATA 6Gb/s solid state drives rather than older mechanical storage options, making the most of the latest hard drive interface standard with double the bandwidth of SATA 3Gb/s. USB 3.0 also comes standard, upping data speeds by as much as ten times compared to USB 2.0. On average, ASUS ZENBOOK™ offers seven times faster data connectivity next to competing models, boosting the user experience in every application.
To accommodate so much powerful technology on a compact form factor, ASUS engineers have developed custom cooling and thermal designs that use a V-shaped air channel to increase air flow, as well as unique beryllium copper alloy components to better handle heat. There are even copper fins to direct heat away out of the case, so ASUS ZENBOOK™ always stays cool. While thinner and lighter than competing models, ASUS ZENBOOK™ is also more powerful, and runs at lower temps for increased longevity and reliability.
