ASUS has unveiled a deluge of new ZenBook notebooks at IFA 2018 but the most interesting of them is arguably the new ZenBook Pro 14.
To put it briefly, the ZenBook Pro 14 is essentially a 14-inch version of the ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 that we reviewed earlier last month.
Its key feature is the ScreenPad, which is a touchpad with a built-in display that can be used as an extended display or as a complementary toolbar to your apps.
You can find out more about the ScreenPad in our ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 review.
The ZenBook Pro 14 will be powered by Intel's newest 8th generation Whiskey Lake processors with up to 16GB of memory and a 512GB PCIe SSD. It also features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q, so you may even be able to run some less demanding esports titles on it.
It is relatively thin and light too, measuring 17.9mm thick and weighing 1.6kg.
The ZenBook Pro 14 will come with a large 70Wh battery with a claimed battery life of 12.5 hours. There's a fast charge feature that can juice up the notebook from 0% to 60% in just 49 minutes.
The ASUS ZenBook Pro 14 is available to buy now at S$2,998.
