ZenBook 3 Deluxe achieves the almost-impossible, featuring a gorgeous 14-inch display in an elegant and compact chassis thatÆs no bigger than many 13-inch laptops. ItÆs an unrivaled combination of power and beauty, giving you the perfect balance between portability and productivity.

ZenBook 3 Deluxe takes ZenBook 3 to the next level ù for the ultimate prestige and performance.

Crafted to perfection

ZenBook 3 Deluxe has a very simple design philosophy: Never compromise. ItÆs a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with a beauty that reflects a painstaking attention to detail. The perfect curves of the all-aluminum chassis are carved from a single block of metal that then goes through a 40-step process to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish with its lustrous, silky sheen. A complex two-phase anodising process is then used to create the elegant golden diamond-cut edges and unique golden ASUS lid logo. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite design that offers the perfect combination of beauty, mobility, performance and productivity.

The 13-inch laptop with a 14-inch display

The chassis of ZenBook 3 Deluxe is the size of many 13-inch laptops ù yet it features an extra-large 14-inch display. ZenBook 3 Deluxe is constructed from premium, aerospace-grade aluminum alloy.
