Reviews for the Asus Zenbook UX302LA-C4009H

100% Asus Zenbook UX302 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The 13in ultraportable laptop market is intensely competitive, but the UX302 holds its own against stiff competition. Ultimately, the choice comes down to what you want from a laptop. For the best keyboard, touchpad and multi-touch gestures, and incredible battery life, the 13-inch MacBook air is a great choice. If you want the best screen, plenty of storage and a bit more power, the UX302 is the better choice and wins our Best Buy award.

The UX302LA is undoubtedly one of the most elegant Windows Ultrabooks we’ve seen so far. Its performance is more than adequate for running Microsoft Office and other productivity software, and represents good value for a laptop in this price range. Battery life isn't atrocious but it could be better. Perhaps the bigger concerns are the limited about of RAM (4GB) and the glossy screen.

The design is luxurious and doesn't nab too much from the big book of Apple, the screen is astonishing, and it's rounded off by solid battery life and decent performance. The cigar-robbing flaw is the RAM – the 4GB module is a chokepoint in an otherwise powerful performance. This is still a lovely laptop, though. In fact, it's our new favourite ultrabook.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M:

Rebranded GeForce GT 645M/640M with minimal improvements to power consumption. Can also be based on the slower GK208 chip (only 64 bit memory interface).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» 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.

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.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 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.
