updated 04:46 am EST, Wed January 2, 2013

Specifications of Touch similar to Zenbook Prime

Asus has updated its website to include details of an unannounced notebook, though not accompanied with the usual marketing fanfare. The 15-inch U500VZ Zenbook Touch is listed in the online product catalog with specifications that seem relatively similar to that of recent Zenbook Prime iterations, but includes a touchscreen.

The Zenbook Touch has an Intel Core i7 3632QM processor supported by 4GB of RAM, discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics, and a 4750mAh polymer battery. The display is a 15-inch 16:9 HD IPS discreen with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 and a viewing angle range of up to 160 degrees, as well as multitouch. Bang & Olufsen ICEpower provides audio processing, while connectivity is provided by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, Ethernet, and an SD card reader.

At the time of writing, a price for the Zenbook Touch has not been revealed, but the addition of a multitouch display will add a premium to an already high-priced notebook, with the similar non-touch Zenbook Prime costing around $1900.
