ASUS ZENBOOK UX303LN: Review
ASUS products are known for their fine balance in stunning looks and design and great performance. Certainly the ASUS ZENBOOK UX303LN is no exception! It is a promising new power-packed and high performance-oriented Ultrabook that is striving to take your computing experience to an all new level. Mentioned below is its review, browse through it before you buy this product or look for something else…
Hardware and Design
If you are looking for a product that is sleek and elegant and at the same time very contemporary in design, this will be your perfect choice. With its smoky metallic look and sharp edges, this is the perfect companion for your workstation. Also its sturdy design makes it a good travel companion too. With 8GB DDR3L and 128GB SSD memory storage, it gives you pretty interesting options to explore. It also sports a HD camera, in built speakers, backlit keyboard, and a nice and spacious touchpad. You will also find the Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M graphics chip, and Quad HD+ IPS 13.3 inch touch screen display very handy. However, the power button on the top right of the keyboard can annoy you at times as you may unintentionally hit it while attempting to press the ‘Del’ key. Of course the delete option is placed right next to it.
To keep you connected, the ASUS ZENBOOK UX303LN Ultrabook offers you one headphone out and audio-in combo jack, one HDMI port, one mini display port, and three USB 3.0 ports to give you a better choice. The connectivity options also include WI-FI ac, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet, and an Intel Wi-Fi module.
This is one aspect that might disappoint you slightly, especially all the gaming and video streaming enthusiasts. The average battery life of the ASUS ZENBOOK is 7 hours, which is surely somewhat to the lower side and there are plenty of good options (some even from ASUS) that offer you prolonged battery life and better productivity options available in the market.
Weighing at around 3 pounds, this ASUS product promises to offer you memorable computing experience. Whether it is to carry out your regular office work or complete the important presentation, be it watching your favorite movie or socialize via the Internet – this compact and stylish looking ASUS ZENBOOK should definitely make you happy. However, if you are looking for prolonged sessions and out of the world gaming experiences, this product may not be the specific one that you were looking out for.
This is by no way certainly a budget laptop as the starting price that has been shared during its launch recently stands at $899. Higher models of this ZENBOOK could even cost you anywhere around $1300 too. So, if you are looking for a budget-friendly option, you could surely try elsewhere. However, having said that, it is also noteworthy that the value is pretty worth it considering the wide-ranging features that this ASUS product offers you.
The final word
In all, the storage capacity, performance and design of the ASUS ZENBOOK UX303LN could make you a happy customer, if not the price and the limited battery life. ASUS products are popular the world over for its high quality products that are stylish yet solid; this product scores well on these fronts. However, if the company is able to resolve the disadvantages (low battery life, high price, and occasional overheating), it could surely be one of the best picks to bring home this fall…
