We're fans of Asus' Zenbook Prime, which combines a slick metal chassis and fast innards with a 13", 1080p display. It looks like that system's days are numbered, though. At Computex today, the folks at PC World came across a new Zenbook system with even more impressive specs.
According to PC World, the upcoming Zenbook Infinity crams a 2560x1600 display resolution into a 13.3" panel—just like Apple's 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display. There's a 28W Haswell processor under the hood, too. Yet somehow, Asus has managed to make this thing thinner than previous Zenbooks. It's only 15.5 mm (0.61") thick, down from 18 mm (0.7") for the Zenbook Infinity.
Other features include the presence of Gorilla Glass, which covers the display lid and palm rest. Touch-screen functionality is also on the menu.
PC World says the Zenbook Infinity isn't due out until the third quarter of this year, and sadly, it doesn't quote a price tag. Considering the $1,499 asking price on the 13" Retina MacBook Pro, though, I wouldn't expect this thing to be cheap.
