Good things really come to those who waits! ASUS just unveiled their first Ultrabook offering yesterday, and from the looks and specs of it, the ZENBOOK really is promising.

So what kind of features are we really expecting to see on this sexy beast? First, it’s incredibly thin, at about 3mm(front) and 9mm(rear). Second, it weighs like a feather(aluminum one, lol) at 1.1kg. Third, it comes packed with an SSD, that will give any HDDs out there a run for its money, performance wise. Fourth, it has a surprisingly great battery life: approximately 7hours. Pretty great feat. for portable device that will house a high performance 2nd Generation Intel Microprocessor. And the great list of smexyness continues.

The ZENBOOK, as the spec sheet suggests, will come in Two models: namely the UX21, and UX31. The main differences between both are the screen size, battery life, weigh, and choice of processors. There’s no pricing available yet, but expect it to start at $999(more or less). In the meantime, you can visit ZENBOOK’s smexy main page for more drool enticing details: http://zenbook.asus.com/
