TECH and HEALTH - ASUS launches new devices at Computex 2018

Asus has launched a bunch of new products on the opening day of Computex 2018, which is now happening in Taipei. Gaming will not be an issue and will look great as it comes with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card and a 15-inch 4K UHD touchscreen display which supports the Asus Pen.

Additionally the VivoBook S13 (S330) is the first ASUS laptop to feature a four-sided NanoEdge display with a remarkable 89 per cent screen-to-body ratio. "Perhaps the biggest confusion stems from the mode in which I can drag the browser window directly from the main display on ScreenPad", says the journalist from The Verge, Vlad Savov has tested a device at the Computex 2018, which runs from 5 to 9 June. It'll be interesting to see what comes from these new products, especially Project Precog, so we'll definitely be keeping an eye on ASUS as we move through the rest of 2018. As its name suggests, the ScreenPad is a touchpad with a full-color touchscreen. Ideal for designers, it features a display with built-in ASUS Calibration Technology that provides the Delta-E colour difference of less than 3.0, while colour-accuracy tuning compensation makes it easy to calibrate display brightness and colour consistency. Unveiled at Computex, the new ZenBook Pro's ScreenPad joins other alternative input methods like the Logitech Craft keyboard, Microsoft Surface Dial, and Apple Touch Bar as a means other than the keyboard and cursor for controlling specialized apps.

Inside the ZenBook S, Asus found room for an eighth-generation Intel Core processor up to the Core i7-8550U. It also uses the 5.5-inch ScreenPad and features an infrared camera for Windows Hello's facial recognition. It will be made available in Deep Dive Blue and Rose Gold colour variants.

ASUS' ZenBook Pro is - as it's name suggests - the device for the professionals.

The all-new ZenBook S is an ultraportable device. The ZenBook S is claimed to be military-grade MIL-STD-810G compatible. The VivoBook S15, S14 and S13 are exceptionally powered by 8th Generation Intel Core processors.

The most notable part is what Asus calls the ErgoLift hinge, which lifts the keyboard to a 5.5-degree angle when the machine is open.

The Vivobook Flip 14 is the newest addition to the VivoBook Flip series of notebooks, featuring a 360-degree flippable touch display.

New VivoBook models include VivoBook S15 (S530) and VivoBook S14 (S430), a pair of stylish and lightweight notebooks available in a choice of five vibrant colors and several textured finishes, ASUS said. Both the notebooks are quite portable too, with the VivoBook S15 and VivoBook S14 weighing at 1.8kgs and 1.4kgs each. This is a completely new hinge design from the company, though it isn't really hard to guess from where exactly the Taiwanese PC maker drew its inspiration from.
