New ASUS S Series ultrabooks measures 21mm in profile and packs powerful 3rd generation Intel Core processors up to an i7, alongside discrete NVIDIA GT 635M graphics, hybrid SSD/hard drive storage and an optical drive - all in one sleek Ultrabook.

The overall design embodies subtlety and sophistication, while crafted to accommodate a diverse range of applications and customer lifestyles.
For more intuitive and easier input, the S Series offers a large touchpad enhanced with Smart Gesture technology, which supports a wider range of touch gestures including two-finger zooming, rotating, and scrolling, as well as three-finger swiping. The keyboard likewise uses premium back-assembled construction and a stylish chiclet design, resulting in a solid and more satisfying typing experience.
Exclusive ASUS SonicMaster Lite audio provides better sound performance in every application, including music, movie watching, and gaming. Audio comes across clearer, cleaner, more powerful, and distinctly impactful, using improved processing and high-grade speakers.
ASUS has integrated exclusive 2-second instant on functionality on the S Series based on Super Hybrid Engine II proprietary technology, allowing customers to get back to work and enjoyment with smartphone-like responsiveness. Data is kept safe with automatic backup should the battery drop below 5% charge.
