The Zenbook 3 was the only ultrabook presented by ASUS during Zenvolution, the event held at Computex Taipei 2016 in early June, but it was enough to take a ride in the Taiwanese company’s booth to discover a full range of devices . Among some model already known and another novel (by the way have you seen the new Zenbook UX510?), We tracked the new ASUS Zenbook UX330.
