Reviews for the Asus ZenBook S UX393EA-HK001T
The ZenBook S is usually the model where ASUS would go all out, and its current iteration continues to impress in both looks and performance. While you have to pay a very steep price for the ZenBook S UX393EA–with a price that is close to Apple’s mid-tier MacBook Pros–you get what you pay for, as this Intel EVO-certified notebook has a better set of components to let you make the most out of its battery life while enjoying its gorgeous 3:2 3K display.

Being one of the latest brands to shift to a 3:2 aspect ratio for their ultrabooks, it is no secret that ASUS wants to take a jab at Apple’s Intel-powered MacBook Pros with the ZenBook S UX393EA. While it is one expensive notebook–considering that it is not a 2-in-1 convertible–we will have to do our usual set of tests if it is worth spending close to Php 100k for the ZenBook S UX393EA.

While I can't draw final conclusions on the ZenBook S UX393 based on this early sample alone, I can tell you that this is one of the most complete ultrabooks on the market right now: it's very well crafted, offers an excellent wide-gamut touchscreen, doesn't compromise much on the IO and is a competent Tiger Lake implementation, backed up by a big battery. However, I need to further clarify our findings in the typing and efficiency sections before wrapping this up. We'll get in-depth on all these aspects down below.
