Laptop and smartphone manufacturers today will vie for the best devices through powerhouse hardware specification sheets and thinner form factors, and it has been the case since razor light MacBooks and revolutionary smartphones took over the world by storm.

With an 11.9mm profile, the ZenBook 3 marks as one of the thinnest laptops in its class. Even with that, Asus was able to fit in a full-size keyboard that's just 2.1mm wide at the edges. It comes with a powerful four-speaker audio system developed in partnership with Harman Kardon, and its 12.5-inch full HD display is even protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 4 from edge to edge. Simply put, Asus wants to win the form factor game without any trade-offs.
