A pair of Asus Zenbook laptops have been announced and they are claimed to be the thinnest Zenbooks to date. But that is not all there is to the story, these thin Asus Zenbook laptops also come with discrete GPUs as well. That means you do have portability but you have power as well.

The 50Wh lithium-polymer battery on this device will save you from being a wall-hugger and you will be able to get 9 hours out of this device on a single charge. Though I am sure that will be reduced as you use the device but still. For the GPU you get a Nvidia GeForce 940MX, this may not seem like much but this will be better than the performance of integrated graphics. You will be able to run a couple of games at decent settings and you can broaden your choice by reducing the settings as well. This is not a gaming machine but you will be able to do some light gaming nevertheless.

The metallic finish on the Asus Zenbook is pretty cool and you can choose from different colors like Quartz Grey and Shimmer Gold, and the Royal Blue and Rose Gold.

The big brother has more power when it comes to the GPU but the difference may not be too great for some people. The pricing is yet to be revealed but we do know that these Asus Zenbook laptops will be available in the UK in the second quarter of the year.
