Never heard of that model. So you are saying that LG came out with a line of laptops that were built and marketed as super thin and light and that they were actually more thin and light than a regular 15 inch laptop.

Is this true!!!!!!!!! OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! Where can I buy one of these laptops that you speak of?

Not completely true.
Asus brand laptops are their budget line, Vivobook is the mainstream and Zen is premium. I would suspect a ton more Asus laptops and Vivobooks are sold then the more expensive Zenbooks so for sure volume returns would be less with Zenbooks. All depends on what your budget can afford. Zenbooks are definitely better but not a apples to apples comparison.

You're right WTF. Why can't this $600 Ultrabook compete with an ultrabook starting at $1600. What an outrage!

Does this have USB-C charging? I can't even find a model number to look it up.

Vivobook isn't the budget lineup. It's the bigger lineup.

Zenbooks are 14", Vivos are 15.6"

That's a weird fetish.

Anyways, it looks like it's an ANSI keyboard so who cares if it's bilingual.

Zenbooks are available in 13.3", 14", 15.6".
Vivobooks are available in 14", 15.6" and 17.0
Some of the pros of the Zenbook are narrow bezel, thin, build quality (metal and military grade certified). Which is why they are more expensive. I got my univ kid a Zenbook.

The BB product link in the OP takes you to a page with a specifications tab where the ports are listed. Here's a paste for USB ports
1x USB3.1-Type C(Gen1); 2x USB 2.0; 1x USB3.1 Type A (Gen1)

the KB has full sized shift and enter keys. ASUS changed their bilingual KB's last year to this layout. they show some symbols to keep them bilingual but typing should be fine.
