ASUSTeK Computer Inc., Taipei, Taiwan
The Asus ZenScreen is particularly thin and, together with a 14.6” monitor, weighs only 800 grams. It features a C-type USB port. The noble design of the aluminium housing features a characteristic circle-line pattern on the back, and the screen switches automatically between landscape and portrait formats. The protective cover made of PU leather folds out into a stand in both horizontal and vertical positions. The device can also be used lying horizontally for typing. Due to a laterally located recess, designed to hold a pen or pencil, the monitor can be supported in a standing position even without the protective cover.
