The Asus ZenBook 13 UX331UA is a thin, light, budget-minded laptop with a spring in its step when it comes to everyday computing tasks, and it’s got all-day battery life to boot. Its integrated graphics can’t compete with laptops that have discrete graphics cards, and it won’t be breaking any records when it comes to video encoding or other CPU-intensive tasks. That said. the ZenBook 13 will please productivity mavens who prefer leaving AC adapters at home.
