Model:

The Asus Zenbook line is known for their slim and compact ultrabook build, an aluminium casing and their premium pricing. The UX32LA-R3065H comes with all these usual Zenbook elements. It comes with a 13.3-inch glossy display with 1366 x 768 resolution, which means it will be sharp but don’t expect good viewing angles or have good clarity in the sun.

It is powered by an 4th-generation i7 Intel processor, 4 GB of RAM and an integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics card. The processor is good enough for any everyday tasks and the integrated GPU can play several games at low settings. The biggest drawback however is the 500 GB hard disk drive with 5400 rpm. An SSD would have definitely be preferable since it is a staple in the Zenbook series.

With most ultrabooks, the weight is comparable to other ultrabooks and is lighter than most notebooks. Weighing only at 1.5 kg, this is definitely good for those that are always on the move. Battery life is also pretty good, with about up to 8 hours of mixed use. When the battery goes down to 5%, the laptop will automatically back up your data.

Another great thing about this model is 3 USB 3.0 slots, which are compatible with USB 2.0 devices. This is an ultrabook for those looking at a solid performance, but it would have been better with an SSD.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
