Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe (late 2017) review

 

Stylish design ; Light for its size ; Excellent display ; Solid and improved performance

Screen is only 1080p ; You pay for what you get

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe benefits from its CPU refresh, gaining some extra power and a bit of extra battery life. It retains all of its strengths, including a refreshingly elegant aesthetic and some impressive build quality. It remains one of the best...

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe (UX490UA)

 

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is the thinnest 14-inch ultraportable laptop we've seen yet, but whiny fan noise and short battery life spoil the deal.

Thinnest 14-inch laptop we've tested. Solid construction. Good connectivity options. Fast Core i7 performance.

Lacks USB 3.0 or HDMI ports. Significantly less battery life than the competition. 1080p screen lacks touch. Fan noise and warm chassis in testing. Not configurable.

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe has the aesthetics and composition of a premium laptop. It's full of top-of-the-line components like a bright full HD screen, Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a capacious 512GB SSD. However, operational quirks like tiring...

A sexy Macbook competitor with a bigger screen

 

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is elegant on the outside and professional on the inside.

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is very slim and stylish. It fits a 14-inch screen into a compact body and includes a fingerprint reader. Performance is excellent.

Battery life is short. Ports are limited. There’s only a standard HD screen option.

Asus slips a big screen into the thin body of the ZenBook 3 Deluxe, but the battery isn’t as upscale as the design.

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA (i5-7200U, 256 GB SSD) Subnotebook Review

 

14-inch Camouflage. Update 2/22/2018: finalized our additional tests. Asus is pretty ambitious with its latest subnotebook, to say the least. At 14 inches it is large enough for serious work but at the same time highly portable with just 13 mm of...

classy design with high recognition value ; compact thanks to narrow bezels ; decent build quality ; 2 x Thunderbolt 3 ; quick charge ; TPM 2.0, fingerprint reader ; useful accessories (bags, dongles, etc.) ; decent ClickPad ; outstanding contrast...

maximum opening angle less than 135 ° ; no ports other than 3x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ; glossy display ; color temperature too high, blue tint ; insufficient color-space coverage ; poor application of turbo boost

If you have read the entire review you will certainly agree that at this point we cannot publish any final scores for the ZenBook 3 Deluxe just yet and have disabled our score widget accordingly. If the constant crashes turn out to be a systematic...

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe review: Slim and stylish, but the screen may disappoint

 

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is a solidly built 14-inch laptop that brings a splash of colour to the proceedings, with a blue-and-gold livery option as well as a more standard grey-and-gold version. Weighing just over 1kg, it might tempt mobile workers...

Two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports ; Lightweight (just over 1kg) ; Solid build ; Decent battery life with fast-charge option

Non-touch 1080p screen ; No SD card reader ; Poorly positioned power button

ASUS ZenBook UX410UQ review – ZenBook’s speciality – power, portability, reasonable pricing

 

Another great addition to the portable ZenBook family – the UX410UQ. This ultrabook surprises with compact chassis, lightweight construction, powerful hardware, good battery life, high-qualit…

Premium and solid build;Light and portable (14-inch notebook in a typical 13-inch form factor with thin bezels and profile);Decent keyboard, good touchpad;Excellent screen;No PWM above 95 cd/m2;Offers the upgradability of a 15-incher (M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD...

The cooling fan doesn’t stop spinning even at idle;Not the best cooling solution for a CPU and discrete GPU configuration (applies to the 940MX configurations only)

Asus Zenbook UX490UA impressions – a high-end 14-inch ultraportable

 

The Zenbook UX490 is an excellently crafted laptop with a beautiful, compact and light body, but also a very good keyboard, top-tier hardware specs and decent connectivity. However, in my opinion Asus somewhat sacrificed practicality for the sake of...

The Zenbook UX490UA is definitely not a laptop for everyone, yet I can’t tell for sure who is it for based on my experience with this early sample, mostly because I don’t know how the final retail units will perform under load. Aas a compact laptop...

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA

 

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA review: 14-inch Ultrabook is powerful but flawed

Stunning thin and light design ; Good screen ; Fast performance

Distracting fan ; So-so touchpad ; Terrible webcam ; Very expensive

A desirable, but flawed Ultrabook.

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA review

 

Svelte but packed full of power, the latest ZenBook offers up performance that's almost too good

Top-quality materials and design ; Strong core performance ; Vibrant screen

Can run hot when pushed ; Unexciting battery life ; Pricey

A wonderfully-thin and stylish laptop that packs a serious punch in the performance stakes. Runs a bit too hot if you really push it, though.
