User-centric design User-centric design is a signature feature of the Zenbook series and it features a precision-engineered, 180° ErgoLift hinge that tilts the rear of the laptop slightly when opened to make typing more comfortable. The lay-flat design also makes it easy to share content with others, or collaborate around a table. The ASUS ErgoSense keyboard and ErgoSense touchpad are engineered to enable an unrivaled input experience, where the keyboard has an incredibly satisfying feel, with the optimum bounce and travel calculated with fine-tuned precision. Scrolling on the extra-large 150 x 90 mm ErgoSense touchpad is just like touching silk. Its surface has a special low-friction coating that’s also fingerprint resistant, keeping the work area as clean as new. For easy one-touch, password-free login with Windows Hello, there's a convenient fingerprint sensor on the power button. Dedicated function keys allow users to turn the webcam and microphone on or off for instant privacy. A webcam with ASUS 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR), a four-element lens and a large camera sensor allow ultrafast face login and significantly upgraded image processing capabilities, when compared to the previous generation. Participants will be able to see the user more clearly than ever during video conference calls, even in darker environments. ASUS Noise-Cancelation Technology ensures crystal-clear audio in conference calls, especially with the Multi-Presenter Conference Call mode in the MyASUS app. With this smart feature enabled, MyASUS detects and optimizes the individual voices before relaying them all at the same volume level — ensuring improved quality for group calls.
