Reviews for the Asus UX301LA-C4006H

70% Asus Zenbook UX301LA review Is this Asus Zenbook more than just another laptop?
Source: Techradar English
I'm slightly underwhelmed by the blandness of the Asus Zenbook UX301LA. There's nothing to really hate about it, but nothing to truly love either. Anyone who buys one wont find any real faults with it, but is unlikely to relish the opportunity to open and use it. When sitting in a computer shop, along with row after row of other similar laptops, it's hard to imagine the Asus Zenbook UX301LA drawing crowds. In that situation, the immediate stand-out feature will certainly be the price tag, and it may take a creative salesperson to convince a customer that the UX301LA is significantly better than another Ultrabook that costs a third less.

70% Asus Zenbook UX301LA review: a stylish 13.3-inch touchscreen Ultrabook
Source: PC Advisor English
After using the Asus UX301LA for a while, it leaves us with no major complaints, it works excellently as a portable computer and is unlikely to cause any problems.??But it equally lacks a single wow-factor feature that make us love it. It gets the job done, but no more. Although Asus has clearly avoided plastic where it can, the UX301LA doesn't have the quality feel of a £1400 computer, which is more expensive than many other Ultrabooks. To justify its high price, ticking boxes isn't quite good enough.

80% Asus Zenbook Prime UX301LA review
Source: Expert Reviews English
As you might expect from such a high-end laptop, the UX301LA’s 13.3in IPS touchscreen display looks fantastic. With an sRGB colour gamut coverage score of 88.4 per cent, colours were bright and vibrant and the display’s glossy finish helped them to leap out of the screen. Contrast levels were good, too. We measured a contrast ratio of 933:1, and our high contrast test photos all showed lots of detail. A few darker areas were slightly obscured by areas of solid black, but on the whole we were pleased with the UX301LA’s image quality. Wide viewing angles and a generous amount of screen tilt meant we could see the screen from a variety of angles without any major shift in contrast.

The Asus Zenbook UX301LA is undeniably an achingly desirable laptop. The display isn’t all it should be, but its stunning design, performance and features are all first class. What prevents it from walking away with an award is the cost. With top-quality rivals such as the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro retailing for £1,000, and our current A-List choice, the Dell XPS 12, representing a saving of more than £300, the Asus Zenbook UX301LA is simply too expensive.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
