The laptop trackpad has been around for a good many years now, but apart from growing in size and improving on sensitivity levels, precious little about it has changed – until now. While we’ve checked out the Asus ZenBook Pro before, Asus unveiled a rather interesting version of it at Computex 2018 that aims to change how you look at the traditional laptop trackpad.

The ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580) goes on sale in July this year for $2,299 (about £1,710, AU$ 3,000), while pricing and availability haven’t been announced yet for the 14-inch model.
