Asus Zenbook UX303UA-R4051T Subnotebook Review

 

There is strength in tranquility. The Zenbook UX303 series has been available since 2014 and Asus now ships the devices with Skylake processors from Intel. Our review unit with an i7 CPU can score with quiet operation and low temperatures, but can the...

high-quality metal chassis ; decent input devices ; very quiet operation ; low surface temperatures ; great system performance ; bright display with good color reproduction

low PWM frequency of the display ; quiet noises from the SSD ; CPU throttling during the stress test ; missing keyboard illumination

The Skylake update of the Zenbook UX303 can, similar to its predecessor, win a lot of sympathy with its sophisticated metal surfaces, decent input devices as well as a bright panel, which is already well-calibrated ex-works. The test model also scores...

Asus Zenbook UX303UA-FN121T Subnotebook Review

 

Skylake upgrade. The Zenbook still manages decent battery runtimes even with Skylake innards. However, that involves making compromises compared with the Broadwell models. The poor screen will not win any awards.

matte screen, runs quietly, low temperature development, good input devices, decent battery life

dark, low-contrast, viewing angle dependent screen, no keyboard backlight, electronic crackling is audible

Asus' Zenbook UX303UA-FN121T is basically a Skylake upgrade of the Broadwell model we already tested. The new processor leads to a higher computing performance. The laptop also allows playing computer games to some extent thanks to the Skylake graphics...

Asus ZenBook UX303UA Review

 

The Asus ZenBook UX303UA is a 13-inch laptop that makes some competing ultraportables look downright overpriced. For $899, you get a sturdy aluminum design, a full-HD touch display, a fast 6th generation Core i5 processor and a 256GB SSD. Most machines...

Sturdy aluminum design; Strong performance; Comfortable keyboard; Colorful full-HD touch screen; Good battery life

Some bloatware; Speakers could be better; Bezel a bit thick

The Asus ZenBook UX303UA is an ultraportable with strong performance, a bright display and a svelte aluminum design.

Asus Zenbook UX303 review

 

A powerful but unambitious Ultrabook

Solid aluminium build ; Rich, vivid and colorful display ; Powerful for an Ultrabook

Annoying ambient light sensor ; Unambitious design ; Relatively thick chassis

A pleasant Ultrabook that makes minor advancements on the previous model, and undercuts the opposition.

Asus ZenBook UX303UA

 

Asus has been churning out some great Ultrabooks in the form of its ZenBook range. I've been particularly impressed with the stellar UX305, which offers premium build quality and design at an affordable price.

Asus ZenBook UX303UA review

 

The Asus ZenBook UX303UA is a robust and fast ultra-portable with good battery life

The UX303UA is robustly constructed, so it’s not the lightest ultra-portable laptop around, but it has great performance. It can handle most everyday tasks, and even a little light gaming, with a battery that should get you most of the way through the...

Pretty good ultrabook

 

I bought a slightly different version with Win8.1 Pro installed because I wanted the upgrade to Win10 Pro; of course, upgrade went without a glitch. People compare this to a Macbook. IMHO the Zenbook comes up way ahead. The new Macbook is a closed box...

- Pretty light. - Looks great. - Graphics are great (although not top of the line). - Touchscreen. - Fast and powerful enough for serious data crunching.

- Only one: very limited upgradeability. This is the reason I give it only 4 golden eggs.

Terrible computer worse company!!!

 

Computer was great for 3 days.

Product was useful within 3 days. Screen turned pink and pixilated. I had IT look at it and he said it was defective. I applied for a RMA and it was rejected. They claimed it was not defected. I sent videos of the computer screen...

Great for your Average User

 

Switching from a huge 17inch dell studio to this, is amazing. Enjoy the power in such a small machine. Was looking into a surface with the same specs but for 500 dollars cheaper. It does have the mac book feel but without being a Mac.

I have not run into any issues at this time.

Functional computer, but cheap quality

 

Overall, it's not a bad computer, but a lot of minor annoyances really pile up. If you just want a (relatively) cheap computer with decent hardware, the zenbook is not a bad choice. However, if quality matters to you, know that this is definitely no...

The internal hardware is fairly good for a notebook of this size and price. Most other 13 inchers in this price range have compromises, such a weaker processor, less ram, 768p screen, or hard drive. No problems with heat or fan noise. There is a vent...

The quality feels like a cheap imitation/knockoff of the Macbook Pro, rather than a premium product. The SSD I received was a no-name brand "SK Hynix" with model number “HFS256G32MND-2200A”. Transfer speeds are about 420/320 MB/s sequential and...
