    ASUS Zenbook UX52VS-CN008H ultrabook

    Incredible design
    ASUS ZENBOOK presents a fetching hairline spun metal finish with concentric circles that embody the tranquility and infinite potential of this notebook. Using durable but elegant aluminum, this design is much more than a cosmetic touch, it’s a statement of sophistication and the first of its kind attained on a notebook. With a finely crafted aluminium design, a sleek profile that’s just 21mm at its thickest and a low 2.2kg weight, the ASUS ZENBOOK UX52VS looks incredible, both inside and out.

    Incredible performance
    The ASUS ZENBOOK UX52VS is one of the most powerful ultraportables around, thanks Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 ULV processors for outstanding multi-tasking performance and cutting-edge NVIDIA® GeForce GT 645M graphics. Hybrid storage combines a high-capacity hard drive with blisteringly quick SSD for less waiting for apps to launch and files to open, while three USB 3.0 transfer data up to 10-times faster than USB 2.0 and recharge mobile devices in half the time.
    Incredibly slim and light

    Incredible versatility
    The ASUS ZENBOOK UX52VS is perfectly equipped for both work and play. The 1080p Full HD display with anti-glare finish is very easy on the eyes, while IPS technology ensures a bright, vibrant image that stays clear even when seen from the side, thanks to a 178-degree viewing angle. The backlit keyboard has automatic brightness control so productivity doesn’t drop just because light levels do, while the large multi-touch touchpad has the same 16:9 proportions as the 15.6-inch screen for intuitive fingertip control with Windows 8. Noise-reducing array microphones and an HD camera with enhanced low light performance mean video chat is always loud and clear, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology and an internal optical drive make for a great home entertainment experience.

    Benefits of SonicMaster
    Based on cooperation between the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, the ZENBOOK outputs incredible audio that’s the best among all ultrabooks in its class. Custom design includes an oval voice coil for clearer vocals, oversized shielded speaker magnets for more impact and better bass, plus aluminum rings to secure speakers and reduce vibration. This is further helped by the ZENBOOK’s aluminum body, which conducts and insulates sound very well at the same time. Lifelike audio via Smart Dynamic Range Control (DRC) means sheer sound enjoyment in every situation.
