WATCH: Weighing the features of the Asus Zenbook 3

In October, Taiwanese manufacturer Asus released the latest in their line of ultrabooks, the Zenbook 3. It's a beautiful machine that's slim and light and has some heavyweight specs: a 7th-gen Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a  crisp 12.5-inch Full HD display. With these premium features come a premium price as well: P79,995.

Is it worth the price? Watch the video for our impressions of a device that's going to give anyone considering a MacBook Air considerable pause. 

It's available now at ASUS concept stores and ROG concept stores nationwide. –
