Reviews for the Asus ZenBook UX430UQ-PURE4

80% Asus ZenBook UX430UQ review: Excellent display stands out in this workhorse of an ultrabook
Source: Tech2 English
Asus has certainly delivered a stellar thin and light laptop with the UX430UQ with a display that is one of the best in its class. At Rs 93,990, you may be tempted to look elsewhere, but UX430UQ does make a compelling offering. Especially so if you are heavily invested in the Windows ecosystem. There are few Windows laptops — Dell XPS 13 being the most popular one — that bring together everything well in a single package — good display, excellent keyboard, long-lasting battery and good performance. The Asus UX430UQ is definitely one of them. If you are looking for a light laptop which can do more than just let you do office related work, the UX430UQ is one product that should definitely be under consideration.

Asus Zenbook UX430UQ – Review
Source: The Techy English
The Zenbook UX430UQ does not struggle to impress. I am impressed that ASUS came this close to perfection. Thanks to its all-aluminum design, this ultrabook is lightweight and compact – making it very useful for travel and presentations. I would recommend Asus ZenBook UX430UQ to anyone looking to buy a premium laptop without gaming as a priority. Don’t forget this ultrabook performs well, offers good battery life and packs a great keyboard and trackpad.

80% Asus Zenbook UX430UQ review: Dainty from outside, powerful from inside

The Asus Zenbook UX430UQ comes in two variants -- the Core i5 version bears a price tag of Rs 70,990 and the i7 processor version bears a price tag of Rs 93,990. The laptop's biggest competitors are Apple's MacBook Pro and HP Spectre.

The UX430UQ also gets a performance boost thanks to its dedicated GPU. The Nvidia GeForce 940MX isn’t exactly a top-shelf GPU, but it does add modest gaming capabilities to this unique ultrabook, comparatively supercharging it for any professionals that dabble in GPU-heavy tasks. While it’s true that to play any modern titles above 30fps, you will need to dial down the resolution to 720p and set graphics to Low, we haven’t seen anything like this in an ultrabook since Microsoft’s similarly specced Surface Book. It would have been nice to get a bigger and faster SSD (say, a 512GB PCIe model rather than the 256GB SATA 6Gbps), but when the more expensive competition don’t even really offer this, it’s hardly a fault.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds.

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.  

7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.25 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


85.75%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
