The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe sports a 14" display in a 13" notebook body

Asus is traditionally very active at CES and at this year's edition of the show the company presented the ZenBook 3 Deluxe notebook. The ultrabook sports a 14" 1080p display tucked into the body of a traditional 13" laptop. As a result, the ZenBook 3 Deluxe features slim, 7.46mm bezel and 77% screen-to-body ratio.

Under the hood, the laptop sports either an Intel Core i5-7200U or an i7-7500U CPU with Intel HD 620 graphics and up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Storage is the speedy NVME PCIe type, up to 1TB.

The ZenBook 3 Deluxe weighs 1.1kg and is 12.9mm thin. The battery is 46Wh Li-Po with Asus estimating it to last up to 10 hours of usage. Realistically, though, you should expect around 5-6 hours.

In terms of connectivity options, the ZenBook 3 Deluxe is equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 support and one USB Type-C (1st generation, used for power delivery).

So when you can get one? The ZenBook 3 Deluxe (UX490UA) will be available in Royal blue and Quartz grey Prices start at $1,699 and you can purchase it in May.
