This Beautiful New Asus Ultrabook Is Dripping in Glass

Asus has been busy announcing a slew of new products at Computex in Taipei overnight and, while many of them are deeply unremarkable, a glass-coated ultrabook and updated Transformer Pad Infinity should be enough to pique your interest.

The 13.3-inch Zenbook Infinity uses a pretty impressive-looking aluminum and glass construction, featuring Gorilla Glass on both the back of the display and around the keyboard. Tough to say how well that will work in practice—the smudges! Oh, the smudges—but it does at least look beautiful. In terms of specs, a dual-core Haswell processor will nestle within its frame, though other details are scant. At just 15.5mm thick, though, it's super-slim—and should be available some time in the third quarter of 2013.

Elsewhere, an updated Transformer Pad Infinity promises to deliver far more than the tablet has done in the past. With a 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS screen, Tegra 4 processor, 32GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, the tablet will apparently pump out 4K video via HDMI. It'll also support USB 3.0 port, packs a 5-megapixel camera and sports a 1.2-megapixel front-facer. It's not clear when the new tablet will be available, but expect it to retail at a similar price point to its predecessor. [Gizmodo ES]
