imageThe ASUS Zenbook has been released… well kind of. As of October 13th 2011 the online stores don’t appear to have very many of these in stock. At some of the online stores they don’t have the product page available yet. Some have them listed but show as out of stock. Amazon showed 5 available. Newegg lets you ask to be notified when it is available. Anyway they are almost here…

To see where to buy check out Asus’s page: http://zenbook.asus.com/where_to_buy/?cd=n-am

Here is what they are offering. There are two versions of the 11.6 inch and three versions of the 13.3 inch models available. I have listed the different models with the suggested retail price. Which one do you want?
