Starting their new computex launch series, ASUS announced the trio of Zenfone 3, but they also announced a bevy of computing devices. The ASUS ZenBook 3 is the company’s volley into the Apple Macbook market, but with way beefier processing power and capabilities.

Weighing in less than 1 KG, and 11.9mm thick, the ZenBook 3 is lighter and thinner than the Cupertino rival, and yet it managed to cram in a faster processor than the competitor. Inside, you will get a full Core i7 CPU, and up to 16GB of RAM. You will also get up to 1TB of SSD Storage, a USB Type C connector port and powerful quad-speaker audio by Harman Kardon.

For display, it comes with a 12.5 inch panel that has an 82% body to screen ratio. It will also feature a 9-hour battery life, and a fast charging technology that will give it 60% battery in just 49 minutes.

ASUS Malaysia is set to bring the device to market in Malaysia by quarter 3 this year, so look out for more news of the ZenBook 3 line-up soon.
