Enhance your Prestige

They say that you can’t improve on perfection. That’s a nice thought, but with the new ZenBook 3 Deluxe we’ve proved them wrong by taking the amazing ZenBook 3 and making it even better. ZenBook 3 Deluxe achieves the almost-impossible, featuring a gorgeous 14-inch display in an elegant and compact chassis that’s no bigger than many 13-inch laptops. It’s an unrivaled combination of power and beauty, giving you the perfect balance between portability and productivity. Measuring just 12.9mm thin and weighing only 2.4lb, ZenBook 3 Deluxe has everything you need for superb on-the-go performance, including a 7th Generation Intel® Core i7 processor, up to a 1TB PCIe® SSD, two USB Type-C (USB-C) ports with Thunderbolt 3 for dual 4K UHD display supports, and a powerful quad-speaker audio system.

Crafted to Perfection

ZenBook 3 Deluxe has a very simple design philosophy: Never compromise. It’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with a beauty that reflects a painstaking attention to detail. The perfect curves of the all-aluminum chassis are carved from a single block of metal that then goes through a 40-step process to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish with its lustrous, silky sheen. A complex two-phase anodizing process is then used to create the elegant golden diamond-cut edges and unique golden ASUS lid logo. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite design that offers the perfect combination of beauty, mobility, performance and productivity.

The 13-inch laptop with a 14-inch display

The chassis of ZenBook 3 Deluxe is the size of many 13-inch laptops — yet it features an extra-large 14-inch display. ZenBook 3 Deluxe is constructed from premium, aerospace-grade aluminum alloy. This grade of alloy is 50% stronger than standard alloy, allowing the ZenBook 3 Deluxe to have an amazingly thin 0.5in profile and weigh only 2.4lb. ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe features .55mm thick Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, which is the toughest cover glass yet while delivering the damage resistance Gorilla Glass is known for.

NanoEdge Display: ultra-narrow bezel

Fitting a 14-inch Full HD display into a 13-inch frame wasn’t easy. One of the keys to achieving this for ZenBook 3 Deluxe is its NanoEdge ultra-narrow display bezel, which is just 7.46mm wide. This allows the biggest possible screen area, giving ZenBook 3 Deluxe a class-leading 84% screen-to-body ratio. Wide-viewing-angle technology ensures undistorted color and great contrast at viewing angle up to 178°, for easy collaboration and screen sharing. This superb display with its realistic color reproduction and crisp detail must be seen to be believed.

The coolest of cool

The challenge in designing a fast, ultra-thin laptop boils down to basic physics. To prevent the laptop from getting too hot, warm air inside needs to be expelled as quickly as possible. For the mighty Intel® Core i7 processor in ZenBook 3 Deluxe ASUS engineers had to invent a brand-new cooling system using state-of-the-art components, including a liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller that’s just 0.3mm thick and a copper-alloy heat pipe with walls that are a mere 0.1mm thick. This innovative cooling system is just 3mm high, and the warm air from the interior is gently expelled via hidden vents in the hinge. The overall design allows for efficient, serenely quiet cooling — even under full loads.

All-day battery, charged in minutes

A laptop as beautiful and powerful as ZenBook 3 Deluxe deserves nothing less than all-day battery life. To achieve the remarkable up-to-9-hour battery life of the ZenBook 3 Deluxe, we designed a special high-capacity 46Wh lithium-polymer battery, shaped to fit precisely into an incredibly thin profile. We also added fast-charge technology that allows charges of up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes.
