If you love the thinness of the Macbook Air, but aren't a huge fan of iOS, then you need to check out the Asus Zenbook. The Asus Zenbook is an ultra-thin laptop made from aluminum and weighing a mere 2.4lbs, measuring 3mm at the front and 9mm at the back.

Details on the Asus Zenbook are scarce, but it will feature a new Intel processor, Bang and Olufsen speakers with Sonicmaster technology, an "Instant On" button and a built-in camera. The Zenbook will come in two sizes, 11.6" and 13.3," and sell for $999.

It may surprise you to know, but this is actually the second thin PC released by Asus in as many months. The EE PC X101 was announced a few months ago and was instantly crowned the world's thinnest netbook. The Asus Zenbook may not be able to steal the market from the Macbook Air, but it is still nice to see some healthy competition in the thin laptop market. Your move, Apple.
