Yep, you read that right. The ASUS Zenbook will be available this month here in the Philippines dressed in a new color: hot pink. That's obviously a move to attract member of the fairer sex who might deem the shiny silver-gray variant a bit too "masculine" for their own taste.
Now what's the difference between the hot pink Zenbook and the one we've grown accustomed to seeing? Aside from the pink lid and keyboard letters, not much, as both color versions (for the 13-inch model) are very similar in terms of innards and even in SRPs (we'll get to that in a bit). The hot pink Zenbook will have the same Intel Core i5 chip, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 13.3-inch LED HD display, Intel HD Graphics 3000, and 128GB SSD capacity. It also tips the scales at just 1.3kg and measures only 3mm at its thinnest point.
As we've said, the hot pink Zenbook has the same SRP as the 13-inch silver aluminum version which means it's going for P59,995. We've seen and held it first hand and it looks damn good just like the original model. We bet the ladies who'll get one will also appreciate its performance since, based on our review, the Zenbook is one very speedy lappie that also packs power. We won't be surprised if the demand of this new colored variant will also be high.
