The key highlight of the new ZenBook Pro 15 and 14 is the intuitive 5.5-inch ScreenPad. Basically, it is a precision touchpad that also works as a secondary display that provides all sort of use cases.

For instance, it can be used as a quick access for certain toolboxes. The desktop can also extend to the ScreenPad to further boost one’s productivity. SDK will soon be available for developers to develop apps that utilise the ScreenPad starting December.

Besides, the 15-inch model has an SKU that is powered by the Intel Core i9 processor, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and 1TB NVMe SSD. As such, the cooling system of the 15-inch model has to be rearranged to increase its performance.

The ZenBook Pro 15 will be available worldwide starting July 2018 at the price of US$ 1299 ~ 2299, depending on configuration. Meanwhile, the ZenBook Pro 14 will also be made available worldwide, albeit in August 2018. It will be priced within US$ 949 ~ 1499, depending on configuration.
