At CES 2018, SanDisk showed off a prototype of what is supposed to be the world’s smallest 1TB USB-C flash drive. SanDisk’s slimmed-down prototype is far smaller than Kingston’s 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT. In addition, the SanDisk prototype fully embraces USB-C, instead of the old USB 3.0. That means you’ll be able to use it to directly transfer storage to Android phones and computers. With no price or release date announced, for now, this drive is just a prototype. Considering a full-sized 1TB USB-C SSD already costs around $350, it’s less likely that SanDisk’s prototype will be affordable should it become available right now. Source: The Verge

It keeps the same thin bezel design of last year’s Zenbook 3, along with quad-core Core i7 U series processors, 16 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of PCIe storage, but drops the weight even further to just 2.17 lbs / 0.98 kg, thanks to the smaller display. As with the ZenBook 3, it also supports Windows Hello, although it looks like it’s IR camera based, rather than the fingerprint reader of the 3. ASUS will be selling the ZenBook 13 in two colors: Rose Gold and Deep Dive Blue. Laptop X507 ZenBook is their premium Ultrabook lineup, but they are also announcing the ASUS Laptop X507. The X507 features a 7th generation Core i7,…

Republic of Gamers (ROG), the gaming division of Asus, has figured out a problem that has been annoying gamers for ages, the monitor bezels that ruin the prospect of total immersion you should get from a three-monitor setup. Their solution, you might ask? It involves the use of lenses and light refraction by a new product of Asus ROG called the Bezel-free Kit. This new product was just unveiled recently at CES 2018. The setup involves vertical lenses and mounts that attach to your gaming monitors at 130-degree angles. The lenses help blend the display image and then refract the light to make it bend in a way that feels natural from one monitor edge to another. The whole effect makes it seem as if you’re using one giant curved display. It doesn’t rely on special software, an external or internal power supply, or any other Asus-specific add-on, suggesting you…
