The ultrathin ZenBook S UX391 is already available in its new coat of paint for $1200 USD. Otherwise, there are no other internal changes or any additional colors planned at the moment.
Allen Ngo,

We recently reviewed the 13.3-inch Asus ZenBook S UX391 and walked away impressed by its sleek design and high-quality metal case. While it had a few performance hiccups, it left a positive impression overall.

To further expand on user options, Asus has announced that it is now finally shipping the ZenBook S in Burgundy Red via online retailers like Amazon and Newegg. Previously, the system was only available in Royal Blue that has become commonplace for ZenBook laptops like the UX580. The delay is curious as Asus first showed off the ZenBook S in Burgundy Red at Computex 2018 only to launch the system in Royal Blue.

The new color option is likely an attempt to appeal to more professional workplace users as this exact same color can also be found on the Microsoft Surface series. We're hopeful that it becomes a success so we can see Asus expand into even more colors across the entire ZenBook family and not just on the ZenBook S.

See our full review on the ZenBook S UX391 for more information on the system.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
