The Asus ZenBook 15 isn't a story of reinvention. It's a story of making little tweaks here and there and putting a high polish on what was already a great laptop. The ZenBook 15 maintains the glamourous looks of its predecessor and adds MIL-SPEC durability to the mix. It keeps the surprisingly useful ScreenPad, makes it bigger and adds more useful apps. The keyboard now sports a number pad and the bezels are noticeably smaller. Heck, the battery life is now nearly twice as long.

The ZenBook 15 UX534 remains a competitive product in its class and something I'd consider if on the market for a beautiful, compact and light notebook with a full-size 15-inch display, excellent everyday performance, some gaming abilities for the spare time, and good battery life, all in a package that won't break the bank for you. It's not without flaws, though, and perhaps tries too much to be a jack-of-all-trades, that's why some of you might actually find better value in the more specialized 15-inch options, either the performance-models or the true ultraportables.

Asus ZenBook 15 UX534FTC GTX 1650 Max-Q is nothing less than a beautiful laptop. This laptop has been introduced with a bewitching blue chassis along with the silver/rose gold trend that is as durable as it is alluring. Talking about the design itself in detail, this model is an undeniable delight for the eyes. The aluminum royal-blue chassis lined by Asus’s telltale concentric circle pattern gives an impression of a beautiful yet restless sea. The metallic lid is obviously cool to be touched but it should be noted that it is a fingerprint magnet. The model comes in with a matte 15.6 inches display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The laptop also has super-slim bezels which might not be as slim as the Dell XPS 15 with its InfinityEdge bezels, but it is still pretty impressive. The viewing pleasure with such high resolution makes the details really sharp, improving the overall experience for users. As far as the keyboard is concerned, the keys are all covered in blue with gold lettering to make it stand out from the background. The ErgoLift hinge allows the keyboard deck to raise slightly when the laptop is opened to allow for a more comfortable typing experience. This accounts for user’s comfort and convenience.
Just below the keyboard, Asus’s ScreenPad technology has made a comeback as ScreenPad 2.0 with more functionality than its predecessor. The ScreenPad 2.0 is designed in a way to be an accoutrement to Microsoft Office with the aim of enhancing and increasing overall productivity. In addition, the LCD touchpad boasts a resolution of 2160 x 1080 with a refresh rate of 60Hz. The Asus ZenBook 15 also incorporates a single USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 2 port, a single USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port, a HDMI port, one SD card reader along with the power jack on the right. On the left, it accommodates a single Type-A Gen 2 port and a headset jack for user convenience. This laptop is coming in with a 1.8-GHz Intel Core i7-10510U processor with 16GB of RAM. This processor was said to be all about big performance such as heavy workloads and multitasking. Intel even claimed that the 10th Gen Comet Lake processor offers an overall 16 percent better performance than the previous-gen chips which is definitely good news for users out there. Apart from that, Asus has also incorporated the ZenBook 15 with a TPM 2.0 module which allows IT managers to institute secure user authentication and other high-level security measures. In addition, the webcam has 3D IR technology which is definitely handy for facial recognition login software like Windows Hello. Asus has definitely taken security seriously in this model. Overall, this Asus ZenBook 15 does flaunts its high points for the price which it comes in with but the choice of owning one is entirely subjective, depending on individual preference.
