This is a neat feature and time will tell if someone is going to use it or is Asus just flexing muscles. There will be a 4K touchscreen option, or 1080p models with either glossy or anti-glare displays.

As ever, this Ultrabook features Asus' almost-too-vibrant screen.

Called ScreenPad, it combines a high-resolution color display and a touchpad to offer a completely new way to interact with Windows apps and dedicated pre-loaded programs called ScreenPad Apps. Even with its compact size, VivoBook S13 delivers uncompromised performance.

ASUS showed up at Computex 2018 with a lot of new hardware in tow. At the core of the ZenBook Pro 15 is up to an 8th-generation Intel Core i9-8950HQ hexa-core processor, capable of boosting its frequency up to 4.5GHz and providing nearly 30% faster performance than the previous generation. ASUS device will also support a stylus, with the tech on board being able to detect when it is nearby to switch into drawing mode.

During his presentation, ASUS global PC and phone marketing senior director Marcel Campos said the ZenBook Pro 15 was designed with three kinds of professionals in mind: video makers, photographers and 3D designers. This is an ASUS innovation that revolutionizes the way users work and interact with their notebook. It says support in other apps is now in development, so it'll definitely be fascinating to see if ASUS can transform the ScreenPad from a exhausted gimmick to something that's actually beneficial to workflow.

ScreenPad features adaptive functions with context-sensitive tools to enhance workflow and productivity and is fully customizable to allow users to personalize their experience. In terms of specifications, Asus ZenBook Pro 15 sports up to 15.6-inch 4K UHD display, 8th Generation Intel Core i9 processor, GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPU, 1TB PCIe x4 SSD, gigabit-class Wi-Fi and Thunderbolt 3 ports alongside Harman Kardon certified audio system. Weighing only 1.8kg and 1.4kg respectively, they are both powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card, a dual-storage design up to a 512GB SSD and 2TB HDD.

Both ZenBooks are extremely attractive, with Asus's bold "deep blue" color scheme consistently applied throughout their chassis.

For now, it seems that Project Precog is merely a concept device, but we'll see the ScreenPad launch on 14 and 15-inch ZenBook Pros later this year. The ZenBook S takes in cool air through this extra space and expels warm air via the hinge area. Basically, when you open this ultra-lightweight 2.2-pound 13.3-incher, the Taiwanese company's proprietary mechanism automatically tilts the keyboard by 5.5 degrees.

The company is promising 13.5 hours of battery life; recharging is accomplished via the use of the laptop's single USB Type-C port and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
