The hall is filled to the brim with press from all over the world. Not long after, the affable ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih takes the stage at the much-anticipated Computex 2017 press event to present “The Edge of Beyond”.

Shih goes on to introduce the stunning line-up of thin and light laptops, namely from the ZenBook and VivoBook series, touted to push the boundaries of design and technology to deliver the ultimate mobile computing experience.

The beautiful thin-and- light models showcased on stage includes the ZenBook Flip S, the world’s thinnest convertible laptop; ZenBook 3 Deluxe, the world’s thinnest 14-inch laptop; ZenBook Pro, the thinnest, lightest and most powerful to date in this professional-grade ultraportable series; ASUS VivoBook S15, featuring a 15.6-inch display in a 14-inch- class chassis; and ASUS VivoBook Pro 15, the most powerful VivoBook ever.

Shih shares: “Today is all about our relentless effort in striving toward perfection. Our brand-new ZenBook and VivoBook line-up truly goes to the edge of beyond, providing everyone with a new definition of thin, beautiful and powerful laptops.”

He was joined on stage by Gregory Bryant, Intel Corporate Vice President of Client Computing Group, who adds: “ASUS has been at the forefront of delivering new technology and experiences for many years. Its stunning line-up of new ZenBook and VivoBook PCs, all powered by 7th Generation Intel Core processors, give people a choice of thin-and- light PCs that merge high performance with style.”

On the gaming front, ASUS also unveils an impressive range of Republic of Gamers (ROG) line-up, including the long-awaited ROG Zephyrus – the brainchild of ASUS ROG and NVIDIA’s collaboration.
