Main feature – ScreenPad instead of the usual touchpad. This is a real 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels and a viewing angle of 178 degrees. You can work in several modes – use the screen as an ordinary touchpad, run separate applications on it or use it as an additional monitor.
Other technical specifications of the model include the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and a SSD of up to 1 TB. There is a fingerprint scanner, a Harman Kardon acoustics and a 71W battery that will provide up to 10 hours of operation.
Another interesting model is the Asus ZenBook 14. There's a digital unit in the touchpad that starts to appear when you press a special button. The function will be useful to those who work a lot with numbers and tables.
The model is equipped with a 14-inch Full HD screen, an Intel Core i5-8265U or Core i7-8565U processor, up to 16 GB of RAM and a SSD drive up to 1 TB.

If you want something classic, then Asus has a 15-inch model ZenBook 15 with a keyboard where there was a place for the digital unit. The display (can be Full HD or 4K) occupies 92% of the face area, the eighth generation of Intel Core i7 processors is used.
