Reviews for the Asus ZenBook 15 UX534FTC-A8078R

80% Asus ZenBook 15 review
Source: Laptop Mag English Archive.org version
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.

Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
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.

Model:

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.

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

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced on 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
