Asus has unveiled its new Zenbook Infinity Ultrabook during Computex 2013 today, the world’s first Ultrabook to sport a lid comprised entirely from Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.

The Gorilla Glass has been fused directly to the aluminum frame, allowing for a thickness of just 15.5-mm thin (about 0.61 inches). That’s 14-percent thinner than the previous generation Zenbook, the company said.

New Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has the same durability and thinness as Gorilla Glass 2, but uses Corning’s proprietary NDR glass composition for superior scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility and improved toughness. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with NDR has three times the scratch resistance of Gorilla Glass 2, and gives a 40% reduction in the number of highly visible scratches with a 40% improvement in retained strength if a deep scratch does occur.

The Asus Zenbook Infinity has a built-in touchscreen as well as a backlit keyboard. Inside, there is a 28W dual-core Haswell part with GT3 graphics, otherwise known as Iris 5100. It will come in at a similar 13.3-inches like the Asus Zenbook Prime.

It also has a USB 3.0 port on each side, along with an SD card slot, micro-HDMI port and a Mini DisplayPort. 

The new Zenbook Infinity isn’t slated to hit the market until Q4, and hence further specifications have not been revealed yet! Stay tuned!
