This Beautiful New Asus Ultrabook Is Dripping In Glass

Asus has been busy announcing a slew of new products at Computex in Taipei overnight. While many of them are unremarkable, a glass-coated ultrabook and updated Transformer Pad Infinity will pique your interest.

Engadget took a look at the new slim laptop, the 13.3-inch Zenbook Infinity, which uses an impressive-looking aluminium and glass construction, featuring Gorilla Glass on both the back of the display and around the keyboard. Tough to say how well that will work in practice — the smudges! Oh, the smudges — but it does at least look beautiful.

In terms of specs, a dual-core Haswell processor will nestle within its frame, although other details are scant. At just 15.5mm thick, it’s super-slim, and it should be available some time in the third quarter of 2013.

Elsewhere, The Verge reports that an updated Transformer Pad Infinity promises to deliver far more than the tablet has done in the past. With a 10.1-inch 2560×1600 IPS screen, Tegra 4 processor, 32GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, the tablet will apparently pump out 4K video via HDMI. It’ll also support USB 3.0 port, packs a 5MP camera and sports a 1.2MP front-facer. It’s not clear when the new tablet will be available, but expect it to retail at a similar price point to its predecessor. [Verge and Engadget]
