THREE laptop series sporting the latest generation of processors make up what ASUS called Malaysia’s most complete Intel 11th Gen laptops. Announced recently at an online event, the ZenBook 13/14, Vivobook S15, and the Vivobook 15/14, are each poised for a different target market.

For those looking for a premium laptop, there are the ZenBook Classics. They come in two Full HD display options, 13in (UX325) and 14in (UX425). Each screen size also comes with two processor options, the i5-1135 or the i7-1165. In total there are four models.

They are built thin at 13.9mm, light at between 1.07kg and 1.13kg, and with thin bezels maximising the screen to body ratio. For ports, there are four, a USB 3.2 Type-A, an HDMI, a Thunderbolt 3 Type-C, and a Thunderbolt 4 Type-C.

They also share the same price tag. Both i5 models are priced at RM3,999 while both the i7 models are priced at RM4,699. The ZenBook 13 and ZenBook 14 are available in Lilac Mist and Pine Grey.

For the mainstream market, there are two series, both under the VivoBook name. All of them are fitted with the Intel 11th Gen i5-1135 processor.

The colourful VivoBookS15 (S533) is aimed at the performance mainstream user. It comes in green, black, red, and white, which are unique in this release. It weighs 1.8kg, measures 16.1mm thick and also features thin bezels.
