With regards to the Asus lineup Jeff Lo commented, “We have noticed a shift in customer demand in the Middle East, moving from HDD’s to SSD’s and preferring notebooks with thinner bezels. The thinner bezels allow us to fit bigger screens into smaller form factors and gives consumers a more immersive experience. Our newest lineup including the premium Zenbook & the vibrant Vivobook X415 and 512 reflect our belief that narrow bezels can be had by all customers.”
