ASUS today announced X407 and X507, a pair of compact and lightweight laptops designed for daily computing and entertainment. They’re powered by up to a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX110 discrete graphics, and feature a dual-storage design with a 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD.

Despite its large display, X507 is extremely portable, with an overall weight of just 1.68kg. The 14-inch ASUS X407 weighs just 1.42 kg.
ASUS brings More Lightweight Notebooks For On The Go Usage
Both X407 and X507 are designed for daily computing and entertainment, and are powered by up to a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 8GB DDR4 memory (Honestly any less would be less than ideal), and NVIDIA GeForce MX110 discrete graphics. They have a dual-storage design that can be specified with up to a 1TB HDD and a 256GB SSD. These Windows 10 laptops also support new and exciting Windows features including Cortana with voice recognition, allowing the user to wake the device from sleep mode simply by using the “Hey, Cortana” voice command. For maximum convenience and compatibility, X507 includes a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port and a microSD card reader, as well as 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. Both laptops support fast charging, requiring only 49 minutes to charge a near-flat battery to 60%. In addition, ASUS SuperBattery technology ensures a 3X-longer battery lifespan when comparing to traditional laptop batteries
X407 and X507 feature a NanoEdge FHD display with a slim bezel for an immersive viewing experience. The narrow bezel design provides a larger screen area, while 178° wide-view technology enables viewing from extreme angles without any color shift, making it perfect for sharing content with friends and colleagues. For a 15.6-inch laptop, X507 is extremely compact and portable – with a thin 21.9mm profile. They are available in a choice of Star Grey or Icicle Gold finishes.
Despite being entry-level laptops, X407 and X507 both have a built-in fingerprint sensor for quick and easy logins with Windows Hello. With each fingerprint being unique, it’s a more secure way of ensuring that user profiles and data stay safe. A 360° recognition function ensures accurate scanning, even if the user’s hand is wet.
Unfortunately Asus has not relased pricing or availability on these laptops but anything priced over $700 would seem excessive for the base models. I have reached out for comment and will update when I receive a response.
