Singularly impactful beauty

Setting new standards in technology and fashion, ZENBOOK Prime measures just 3mm front and 9mm back. It uses precision-crafted aluminum throughout its monoshell build, ensuring light durability. The cover features finely-etched concentric circles that embody the infinite nature of Zen thinking, and the entire design has been optimized to offer a holistic approach towards combining beauty with speed, and balancing work with play. To maintain this look and feel, ASUS has developed a lineup of ZENBOOK Prime accessories that are just as attractive and sophisticated.
