Asus outs 15.6-inch Zenbook U500 ultrabook

Now this is one big-ass ultrabook — the Asus Zenbook U500 which has a full HD IPS LCD display. The U500 is by far the biggest ultrabook we’ve heard of (along with the Envy Spectre XT).

And since the real-estate is fairly large, Asus also added a dedicated numpad on the right.

They did not give the complete specs but here’s what we got so far.


Asus Zenbook U500VZ specs:
15.6″ IPS Full HD LCD @ 1920×1080 pixels
Intel Core i7 processor
GeForce GT650M 2GB GDDR5 RAM
2 x 256GB SSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
HDMI port
2 USB 3.0 ports
mini Displayport
Bang & Olufsen ICEpower speakers
Windows 8 Pro

There are various configurations of the ultrabook, starting with 128GB SSD to 500GB Hybrid or a full 512GB of SSD (2 x 256GB). There’s also the option to just stick with the Intel HD 4000 graphics if you’re not heavy in that department.

That’s a full-sized HDMI port right there.

The Zenbook U500 will be officially announced and priced right after Windows 8 is launched.
