The Asus UX51/UX52 family of ultrabooks has Full HD 1080p touchscreen displays and rather outdated Intel Ivy Bridge processors, but it looks like these machines will soon get replaced to keep the lineup fresh. The upcoming Asus Zenbook NX500 is a 15-inch machine rumored to pack impressive specs - UHD 4K display, Bang & Olufsen audio, as well as aluminum body.

According to Notebook Italia, the Zenbook NX500 will feature Intel Haswell processors, next to a 15-inch 4K Ultra HD display and a stylish aluminum body design. This premium ultralight portable will also come with audio hardware to match its looks, namely titanium speakers with SonicMaster technology by the notorious Bang & Olufsen subsidiary, ICEpower

Since this ultrabook will feature a 4K display, it is possible to see it coming with a dedicated graphics card as well, but that remains to be seen. For now nothing is official so all the above should be taken with a grain of salt, but the source mentioend that the Asus Zenbook NX500 may debut during this year's edition of the Design Week fair which takes place between April 8 and 13 in Milan.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
