Reviews for the Asus ZenBook S13 UX392FN
While the Zenbook S13 might seem like just another ultraportable on the surface, its dedicated graphics and glorious thin bezel screen help it stand out. ASUS is known for experimenting with new designs in its laptops, like with last year's ZenBook Pro, which tucked a screen inside its trackpad.

These are just suppositions, but we’ll answer all the questions in our detailed review that will be available in the months to come. For now though, I’m hopeful this could be a better overall product than the ZenBook UX433, which sacrifices a bit too much for portability’s sake. We’ll see.

If there is ever a sign that laptops are getting smaller and lighter without compromising performance then the Asus ZenBook S13 is a prime example. Gorgeous design with an all but bezel-less experience, impressive performance, discrete graphics and a large battery in a small form make this an extremely impressive device.

With a bezel-less screen unlike anything you’ve seen and packing more hardware than most other Ultrabooks, the Asus ZenBook S13 is a unique machine worthy of your attention.

While Asus hasn't detailed pricing yet in terms of design and looks the ZenBook S13 looks really nice. Nice like the Dell XPS range nice and we didn't expect to be saying that about the ZenBook.

CommentIntel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » 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.
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
