ASUS today debuted an all-new ZenBook series, with the launch of ZenBook 13 (UX333), ZenBook 14 (UX433) and ZenBook 15 (UX533). This fully redesigned series of premium thin and light laptops introduces the stunning new frameless Nano Edge display, which features ultra slim bezels on all four sides and an unrivaled up to 95% screen-to-body ratio 1 for a near-borderless viewing experience. The Nano Edge display also allows a much more compact design, with the result that each of the new ZenBook models has the smallest footprint in its class 2 .

The 13-inch and 14-inch models also optionally include the exclusive new Number Pad, an innovative productivity enhancement that provides a full-size LED-illuminated numeric keypad built into the touchpad. All models feature a special 3D IR camera that allows fast face login using Windows Hello, even in low-light environments.

The combination of performance and mobility is a defining feature of the ZenBook series, and the new models feature a full complement of high-performance components including the latest 8th Generation Intel ® Core ™ i7 quad-core CPU, up to NVIDIA ® GeForce ® GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics, 16GB RAM, ultrafast PCIE ® SSDs and gigabit-class Wi-Fi.

All models are torture-tested to military-grade (MIL-STD-810G) reliability standards, with demanding tests that include environmental extremes of altitude, temperature and humidity, in addition to extensive drop, shock and vibration testing.

Ultraportable, redefined
The new ZenBook series ushers in a fresh era of ultra-compact, ultralight laptops that boast the smallest footprints in their class, a feat made possible by the new frameless Nano Edge design. The stunning frameless Nano Edge displays now feature ultra slim bezels on all four sides, creating an unrivaled 92% screen-to-body ratio that maximizes the screen area in the minimum physical space.

Complementing the groundbreaking new design, the traditional ZenBook style and elegance is apparent at a glance: all models feature the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid, and there’s a choice of prestigious Royal Blue or sophisticated Icicle Silver anodized finishes, both newly enhanced with a contrasting Rose Gold trim bar above the keyboard for an extra touch of luxury.

No-compromise productivity
For the ultimate on-the-go productivity, ZenBook 13 and 14 are equipped with the exclusive new ASUS Number Pad. Number Pad solves the age-old problem of the lack of a dedicated numeric keypad on compact laptops. Tapping the Number Pad icon at the top right corner of the touchpad reveals a full-size LED-illuminated numeric keypad, allowing rapid and intuitive data entry or calculations. ZenBook 15 features a traditional physical numeric keypad.

All models feature an advanced 3D infrared (IR) camera, with see-in-the-dark capabilities to ensure fast, reliable hands-free face login with Windows Hello — even in dimly-lit environments. Unlike some rivals with awkwardly placed cameras, on ZenBook the camera is located on the slim top bezel of the Nano Edge display — yet another thoughtful design detail.

Advanced voice-recognition capabilities on the new ZenBook series means users can be entertained, informed, and organized simply by speaking to Alexa or Cortana. Alexa is a cloud-based voice service that helps users with tasks, entertainment, general information, and more. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question. Just ask to play music, read the news, control a smart home, tell a joke, and more — Alexa will respond instantly.

When working on the go, it’s vital to be able to connect with anything and everything. The new ZenBook series features the revolutionary USB Type-C ™ (USB-C ™ ) port for any-way-up connections and superfast USB 3.1 Gen 2 (up to 10Gbps 3 ) data transfers, and there’s also a range of other USB ports, including USB Type-A (up to 5Gbps or 10Gbps) and/or USB 2.0 4 . All models also include an HDMI port and a microSD or SD card reader, so it’s easy to connect to all your current and future peripherals.

With any ZenBook, comfort is one of the top design priorities. The new ZenBook series goes the extra mile with the exclusive ErgoLift hinge, an engineering masterpiece designed to automatically tilt the keyboard to the most comfortable typing position. But that’s not all: the carefully calculated tilt improves cooling and audio performance, too.

img_20190110_140334

Unbounded performance
The new ZenBook series is built to deliver unbounded on-the-go performance, featuring up to the latest 8th Generation Intel ® Core ™ i7 processor and a range of fast graphics options, including up to NVIDIA ® GeForce MX150 discrete graphics on ZenBook 13 and 14. ZenBook 15 is equipped with high-performance NVIDIA GeForce ® GTX 1050 Max-Q GPU.

All models are equipped with PCIe ® SSDs and up to 16GB of RAM, making ZenBook ideal for creating complex documents, mining data, retouching photos, editing videos, or simply taking a gaming break. The new ZenBook series lets users do more, and do it quicker.

Mobile professionals need to stay connected — at the fastest speed possible. All new ZenBook models feature gigabit-class Wi-Fi and ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology, for ultrafast downloads and smooth streaming with greater range and more stable network connections than ever before 5 . Additionally, the latest Bluetooth ® 5.0 lets users access all the benefits of the latest low-power peripherals and accessories.

Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, the new ZenBook series gives users the freedom to work all day on a single battery charge — up to an impressive 14 hours for ZenBook 13, 13 hours for Zenbook 14 , and an incredible 17 hours for ZenBook 15.

Ultra-tough: Military-grade durability
The new ZenBook series meets the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810G military standard for reliability and durability, undergoing a punishing test regime that includes extended tests for operation in harsh environments including extreme altitudes, temperatures and humidity. The series has also passed ASUS internal laptop tests that far exceed the standards set by the industry. ZenBook is the ultratough ultraportable, the perfect choice for discerning on-the-go professionals.

2018 is the fifth consecutive record year for Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM). The distinctive three-pointed star shined brightly in 2018 with an extraordinary performance of 13,079 vehicles sold, translating into a 9% overall growth. Capturing a 2.4 per cent market share*, the achievement cements Mercedes-Benz as the undisputed luxury lifestyle brand in Malaysia and the global arena.

MBM President and CEO, Dr Claus Weidner said: “2018 was another successful year in the 15 year-long extraordinary journey for Mercedes-Benz Malaysia and the Mercedes-Benz brand. Our efforts to invigorate the brand experience for our increasingly diverse fans have been fruitful and we are happy to retain our position as the number one luxury lifestyle brand. Our great combination of Best Products, Best Service and Best Customer Experience continues to drive the brand “success and we assure our customers and fans that this will continue to be our focus.”

He added, “Offering a seamless customer experience to our valued customers is a core value that we uphold and we believe this is important to ensure sustainability of the business. The mantra has always been about “Putting the customer at the centre of our activities.”

Commenting on the 2018 performance, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MBM, Mark Raine said, “We are extremely proud of our history-making performance for 2018. We delivered 13,079 Mercedes-Benz Cars to customers, further cementing our position as the leading premium brand in Malaysia. Our fresh-faced product portfolio with the locally assembled Mercedes-AMG C 43 and GLC 43, and all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class has succeeded in keeping our fans excited about the brand. Furthermore, we gave the market a taste of the future with the EQ Concept this year. We intend to keep the momentum going with more exciting events and products in 2019.”

In 2018, MBM’s performance was spearheaded by the locally produced limousines, which recorded 7,910 units sold. Following closely were the Mercedes-Benz SUVs with 2,613 units sold, particularly by the locally produced Mercedes-Benz GLC 200 and GLC 250. The German marque expects continued positive demand for this segment. The Mercedes-Benz compact cars recorded a total of 1,875 units sold, while the Mercedes-Benz Dream Cars, recorded a total of 662 units sold, a 77% growth for the three-pointed star’s brand shapers.

The 20 vehicle launches spread throughout 2018 sustained the healthy momentum of demand for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The key launches included the locally- assembled Mercedes-AMG C 43 and GLC 43, Mercedes-AMG E 53 Sedan and Mercedes-AMG E  53 Coupé, its New Dream Cars Collection, the New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Family, and the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class and new generation C-Class. Additionally, MBM showcased the brand’s innovative edge with the EQ Concept premiere in Kuala Lumpur – a first in Southeast Asia. The milestone has positioned Mercedes-Benz as a reinventer of the automotive industry with the EQ brand, pioneering the direction and setting the stage for future mobility.

Going hand-in-hand with its Best Products, MBM spearheaded engaging activities to match a diverse fan base aligned to its overall Best Customer Experience commitment. MBM engaged with fans through events like Urban Hunting x ULTRA Singapore 2018, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Kuala Lumpur, the Mercedes Trophy and introduction of the AMG Owners Club Malaysia (AOCM) which are aimed at elevating the AMG experience with exclusive access to all things AMG for owners. Complementing the seamless ownership experience, Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia (MBSM) recorded a steady growth in line with the three-pointed star’s progress. For the year, MBSM financed four out of every 10 Mercedes-Benz vehicles sold and has a solid servicing portfolio of MYR 2.7 billion**

MBSM’s commitment to innovative peace-of-mind financing and insurance solutions was further embodied with the introduction of new products like AgilityPlus and Lease2Go. MBM’s emphasis on upholding Best Customer Experience at every touchpoint translated into the highest Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) After-sales score in history. The achievement has demonstrated the brand’s excellence in managing the high volume of Mercedes-Benz vehicles by maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction. The passion and expertise behind the Best Customer Experience brand promise was showcased once again in this year’s Mercedes-Benz SEA II Skills Competition. 2018 marked the competition’s 10th anniversary and first year opening its doors to the South East Asia II (SEAII) region. A total of 613 Customer Services Professionals and Advanced Modern Apprenticeship finalists competed for the title of best technician, service advisor and process specialist within the Mercedes-Benz network.

The celebrated technicians and customer services personnel make up the backbone of MBM’s 35 dedicated dealerships nationwide. In tandem with its growing fan base, MBM launched five new touchpoints last year including the NZ Wheels Klang Autohaus, Hap Seng Star Setia Alam Autohaus and Asbenz Stern Kuantan Autohaus among others. Trained with a view of keeping customers at the centre, every touch point is key in delivering the Best Products and Best Customer Service throughout the entire customer journey. To date, Mercedes-Benz has the largest premium dealer network in the country.

Recognising the dedication, passion and hard work of its dealer partners, MBM held the inaugural Dealer of the Year awards in March 2018. The award is poised to be an annual event aimed at rewarding dealerships for operational excellence and commitment to delivering the Best Customer Experience.

Another exciting offering introduced in the network for 2018 was the Mercedes-Benz Certified pre-owned vehicle programme. The programme represents the highest quality in used cars from Mercedes-Benz worldwide, previously known as Proven Exclusivity. Mercedes-Benz as a brand has invested over MYR 1 billion in the Malaysian market since 2003 and MBM’s production plant in Pekan, Pahang demonstrates its long-term position and consistent commitment to the Malaysian economy. In FY2018, the production plant produced 9,854 vehicles, including the newest addition being the Mercedes-Benz S 450 L and the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Facelift.

MBM’s long-term commitment is also demonstrated through the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Training Academy built to develop the skills of Malaysia’s youth and create meaningful job opportunities in the automotive industry. 2018 saw an additional 26 apprentices graduated bringing the total to 853 globally certified local apprentices who have passed through its doors since the establishment of the training programme. On its outlook for the year ahead, Dr Weidner said, “2019 will be another exciting year for Mercedes-Benz with refreshing innovations and new benchmarks to elevate the customer experience. We are excited to share these updates in due time.” Earlier today, Daimler AG announced that on a global level Mercedes-Benz sold approximately 2.3 million cars worldwide in 2018, increasing its unit sales by 0.9 per cent, making 2018 the most successful year in terms of sales in the company’s history. The new sales record in the car division of Daimler AG was driven in particular by the success of Mercedes-Benz in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific was identified as the region with the strongest growth in 2018, delivering 943,473 (+7.8%) Mercedes-Benz cars to customers in 2018. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia was one of the few markets in the Asia Pacific region to have delivered more passenger cars than ever before in a single year.

SHOPEE Prescribe ‘Laughter Medicine’ Online

This online medicine is available by Comedian Harith Iskander who joins the Shopee Celebrity Squad via The Joke Factory (TJF).

Photo 2

With so much going on in our lives: chasing for weekly targets, attending endless meetings and cleaning the house after a long day at work, some of us may have forgotten how to take a break, let alone laugh. Research and studies have also shown that there is a correlation between ‘laughter’ and ‘health’, the former having positive effects on the latter.

To encourage Malaysians to let down their hair more and have a good laugh, Harith will be joining the Shopee Celebrity Squad and opening The Joke Factory (TJF) official store on the platform. He joins the likes of Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin, Dato’ Seri Dr. Hajah Vida, Scha Alyahya & Awal Ashaari, Ummi Nazeera, Shuib Sepahtu and Siti Sarah who also have their official stores on Shopee.

At the TJF official store, Shopee users will be spoilt for choice with the selection of daily shows they want to watch before purchasing the show tickets, fuss-free. The store will soon sell merchandise as well as food packages to offer Malaysians the ultimate comedy experience.

The Joke Factory in Publika Shopping Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, was introduced by Harith and his wife Dr. Jezamine Lim Iskander in August 2018. Lauded to be Malaysia’s Premiere Comedy Venue, it offers Malaysian-styled entertainment of international quality as well as food and beverage so the audience will have the best of both worlds. Apart from English, it also hosts comedy in Bahasa Malaysia, Tamil, Cantonese and Mandarin.

It is also at that venue where the launch of TJF by Harith Iskander official store on Shopee was held, witnessed by invited guests and the media. They also got a treat from the man himself, breaking into fits of laughter as he performed his jokes and antics on stage.

Harith has grown from a comedian into a world-recognised humour pundit, placing Malaysia on the international comedy map twice. He not only won Laugh Factory’s “Funniest Person In The World” 2016 competition but is also the first Southeast Asian comedian to have his own original comedy special “I Told You So” on Netflix.

“It has always been my mission to spread laughter in more ways than one to Malaysians. My wife and I are constantly seeking exciting ways to keep the local entertainment scene fresh and relevant. We are every bit excited to join the Shopee Celebrity Squad that has a line-up of amazing celebrities who are also selling their products on Shopee. Going on Shopee also allows us to reach out to its 16 million users, further bridging us and Malaysians as we continue to work towards spreading joy, laughter and humour in their lives. We look forward to having a fun-filled and long-term collaboration as we grow together in offering Malaysians the best there is,” comedian and TJF co-founder Harith Iskander enthused.

The Shopee Celebrity Squad was launched in May 2018 to allow fans and Shopee users to officially purchase curated products from their favourite celebrities with convenience. To date, there are more than 20 celebrities on board with more joining the family in months to come.

With the aim of growing their brand’s exposure, the Shopee Celebrity Squad will utilise an array of marketing channels including the in-app portal, social media and more.
