An Elegant Business Laptop: The Asus Zenbook UX310UA

There are only a few ultrabooks that can compete against Apple’s MacBooks, and the Asus Zenbook UX310UA is one of that few. Besides the slim and good-looking nature of this laptop, what lies underneath is by no means disappointing – another reason it stands tall.

Design

As already stated, the Zenbook UX310UA is a great-looking laptop. This laptop maintains the design language of Asus’ ZenBook series that is thin, beautiful and lightweight. This elegant device measures only 18.35mm thickness, which while not being the slimmest, is still thin. Asus used a high-quality chassis for the ultrabook making it durable. On the scales, the Asus ZenBook UX310UA weighs a trifling 1.4kg, making it very very light.

The metal clad lid features the ‘ASUS’ logo at the top with the concentric circles typical of ZenBooks. The remaining part of the laptop is covered in brushed metal. There are two color options for this ultrabook: Quartz Grey and Rose Gold.

Display

Next up, the display on the Asus ZenBook UX310UA is truly awe-inspiring. This is because of the QHD 3200 x 1800 high-resolution screen (there’s also a lower 1080p display available).

The 13.3-inch screen has great color reproduction and with its 178 degrees wide viewing angle, making viewing a pleasurable experience. Through ASUS’ in-house developed Splendid technology, you get vivid and more accurate colors on this laptop’s display.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Moving on, the Asus ZenBook UX310UA sports a full-size keyboard for the best typing experience. This robust keyboard has 1.6mm key travel and backlighting for night-time typing.

The touchpad on this ultrabook is topnotch with its high precision and glass protection that is reminiscent of the touchscreens found on smartphones. The icing on the cake is the inclusion of a fast fingerprint sensor in the pad for advanced security.

Performance

A 7th generation Intel Core i5-7200U CPU clocked at 2.5GHz runs the show on the ZenBook UX310UA. This processor is paired with an Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU and 8GB of DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 20GB).

Battery Life

Battery life on this ultrabook isn’t one of its strong points. In order to get a really slim laptop like this, Asus had to compromise on the battery. So, you’d have to manage the subpar battery life of this albeit wonderful device.
