Written by zeeshan



On paper the new Asus Zenbook 13 is a great thin and light laptop featuring a nearly bezel-less 13-inch display with an impressive 95% screen to body ratio it packs in some decent hardware and at its price point it could prove to be the perfect buy for both students and professionals work on the go but is it really as great as its chalked up to be well that’s exactly what we are here to find out those Abhijeet from Darrington let’s get right to it [Music] let’s kick things off with the design the Asus Zenbook ux302 I cap ream iam thin and light notebook with a slim chassis and subtle design it weighs slightly over a kg and it’s just sixteen point nine millimeters thick making it exceptionally portable the smooth edges make it an absolute pleasure to hold and because of its small form factor I sometimes tend to forget that I’m even carrying it in my backpack even with such a small body the same book 13 offers a good selection of ports including USB 3.0 type-a port a USB 2.0 type a port a USB type-c a full size HDMI port and a headphone microphone combo Jack the laptop even features a micro SD card slot which really comes in handy while transferring images from my camera design-wise the most unique thing about the Zenbook 13 is it’s a girl EFT hinge it lifts the laptop at an angle when open resulting in a very comfortable typing position the hinge also lifts a laptop up from the surface which improves air flow and slightly enhances.

The sound output from the tiny downward firing speakers however the hinge don’t feel really sturdy and it slipped out quite a bit when typing which affected my overall experience I hope a so somehow fixes that in the next iteration even though the laptop lacks a fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication it does pack in a 3d infrared camera with face recognition support this works quite well and unlocks the laptop as soon as I open the lid isn’t that impressive moving on to the display the Zenbook 13 features a nano edge 13.3 inch full HD LED with crazy thin bezels giving the laptop a 95% screen to body ratio I can tell a CIL’s as used a high quality panel on this laptop because the visuals consistently look quite sharp and crisp the thin bezels add-on to the viewing experience making watching movies or playing games quite immersive viewing angles are also pretty great and I didn’t notice any color shifting while looking at the display from the sides color accuracy is decent and most casual users will have absolutely no problems with the color reproduction and thanks to the bundled splendid and true-to-life software the performance can be fine-tuned even further the keyboard on this laptop is rather unremarkable the key travel is a bit too short and sometimes the keys need to be pressed a little too firmly which takes away from the overall typing experience however layout wise the keys are well spaced out and typing for long sessions feels quite comfortable while the keyboard is average at best the trackpad on the Zenbook 13 is simply brilliant and has a smooth glass surface and windows precision drivers support making it a pleasure to use tracking is accurate and the palm rejection is also pretty great and no time for accidental touches what means the trackpad on the Zenbook 13 really stand out however is its illuminated number but to me it seems more like a gimmick than a functional component as it isn’t as responsive as I’d wanted to be and I ended up not using it all that much talking about what’s inside our review unit Paxson and 8th gen inbuilt Core i7 processor with 8 gigs of RAM of 512 gigs of SSD and an nvidia geforce MX 150 graphics card with 2 gigs of VRAM with these specs the laptop feels quite snappy in everyday use thanks to the MX 150 the Zenbook 13 is also capable of handling games although not all that well I tried a couple of games of the system and most of them ran at medium to low settings at 1080p slightly improving in performance when the resolution was bombed down to 720p well that’s to be expected but what’s really surprising is that the laptop didn’t heat up all that much while gaming sure the fans to crank up and make noise under load but that’s a trade I am willing to make the Zen book Thirteen’s battery backup is what really makes it the perfect companion for people looking for a thin and light notebook to work on while they’re on the move it lasts long like really long in my testing that day laptop lasted an impressive eight and a half hours and the light workload with screen said 250 person brightness under heavier load including some light video editing and gaming the battery lasted almost four hours but since you wouldn’t really be gaming or editing videos on battery power on a regular basis I don’t think you will face any issues with the battery life priced at around eighty-nine thousand bucks the Zen book 13 is a great buy for anyone looking for a thin and light notebook that has a dedicated graphics card the laptop has a fantastic design a brilliant stream a great battery life and decent performance it strikes a great balance between portability and performance now the slaped of easily stands toe-to-toe against the MacBook Air when it comes to portability and offers a better bang for your buck when it comes to performance so if you’re in the market for a great macbook air alternative you should definitely consider getting this one unless of course you don’t want the Windows PC so that sums up our review of the Asus Zenbook 13 don’t forget to hit the like button if you liked the video and subscribe to guiding tech for amazing reviews and tutorials this Abhijeet signing off see you in the next one.
