The Zenbook UX301 and UX302 are ASUS' new flagship Ultrabooks. Both have a sleek glass finish in the form of scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass with Native Damage Resistance. The 13.3-inch display features 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution and a 10 point multi-touch fingertip control system. It runs Windows 8 on a 4th generation Intel Core processor and optional 512GB RAID0 SSD storage turbo-charges performance.
The Fonepad Note 6 is the latest Android tablet with the features of a smartphone. The 6-inch tablet has a Full HD Super IPS+ display with multi-touch and stylus input, powered by the new Intel Atom Z2580 processor. Designed for smartphone users who prefer a larger screen, Fonepad features built-in HSPA+ 3G for telephone calls and mobile internet.
Similarly, the Fonepad 7 is a great solution for people who want smartphone features with a tablet-sized screen. Fonepad 7 is an updated version of the 7-inch Android device, offering a new non-slip finish and faster HSPA+3G with up to 42Mbit/s download speeds.
The ASUS MeMo Pad 8 and MeMo Pad 10 tablets have an 8-inch and 10-inch screen, respectively. Both feature a 1280 x 800 resolution with IPS technology, plus high-quality dual speakers with ASUS SonicMaster audio for high-quality sound. Designed for easy one-handed use, MeMo Pad 8 measures just 127mm from side to side and weighs 350g, but its 8-inch display gives 30% more screen space than a 7-inch tablet. MeMo Pad 10 is equally portable, at just 522g.
The ASUS Transformer Book T300 is a 13.3-inch laptop with a detachable Full HD display that can be used as a standalone Windows 8 tablet. Powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor for seamless multi-tasking performance, Transformer Book has up to eight hours battery life.

Transformer Book Trio is powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor in Windows 8 laptop mode, but the 11.6-inch display detaches from the 'PC Station' keyboard dock for use as an Android tablet with its own Intel Atom dual-core processor. The dock can then also be used as an independent Windows 8 desktop PC when connected to an external monitor.
