ASUS Zenbook Infinity - the World's First Ultrabook with a Lid made from Corning Gorilla Glass 3 - to Debut at Computex
Incredible performance and outstanding durability in an ultra-slim and elegant design
London, United Kingdom (20th May, 2013) - ASUS today announced that the new Zenbook Infinity Ultrabook™ will debut at Computex 2013. Zenbook Infinity features a beautiful new design that fuses glass and aluminium for a wonderfully slim profile with outstanding resilience. Thinner than the previous model, Zenbook Infinity makes innovative use of new Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance™ on the lid and keyboard surround for sleek and durable style.
Slim, stylish and scratch-resistant
ASUS Zenbook Infinity raises the bar for notebook design with a seemingly impossible combination of elegance and durability. With a maximum thickness of just 15.5mm, Zenbook Infinity is an incredible 14% thinner than the previous generation Zenbook. By incorporating Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance (NDR) on the outer lid and keyboard surround, Zenbook Infinity attains a dazzling first for notebook design - a sheer, high-gloss, finish that's highly resistant to scuff marks and scratches.
New Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has the same durability and thinness as Gorilla Glass 2, but uses Corning's proprietary NDR glass composition for superior scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility and improved toughness. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with NDR has three times the scratch resistance of Gorilla Glass 2, and gives a 40% reduction in the number of highly visible scratches with a 40% improvement in retained strength if a deep scratch does occur.
Zenbook Infinity features the pattern of fine concentric circles that's an ASUS Zenbook hallmark, but gains a beautifully clean and smooth exterior that's more resistant to the harsh realities of mobile life than notebooks that use more traditional materials.
