BERLIN -- The Asus Zenbook UX301 slaps the latest Intel chips into a skinny frame with a slick glass top. It's gorgeous and should be monstrously powerful, so don't expect it to come cheap. It's due to go on sale toward November.

That's Gorilla Glass 3 on there -- it's apparently super scratch-resistant.

It's a slim chap -- easily slender enough to get into a stylish messenger bag.

The screen is available with a whopping 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution. How much more you'll need to pay remains to be seen.

The keyboard is a pretty standard affair. The matte-effect glass surround looks good, though.

It's packing the latest Intel processors. You can configure it up to a Core i7 if you need more juice.

It's running Windows 8, so naturally the screen is touch-enabled.

Only those of you with a heart of stone could say that it doesn't look great.
