Decked out in a striking burgundy red shade and diamond-cut rose-gold edges, the Asus ZenBook S (UX391) is a stunner. It is also ultra-portable, thanks to its 1kg weight and svelte 12.9mm-thick all-metal unibody chassis.

It comes with an ErgoLift hinge that automatically tilts the keyboard up by 5.5 degrees for better typing comfort. The raised chassis also improves airflow for better cooling.
