Model: The Asus Zenbook 13 UX331UN-90NB0GY1-M00230 is a lightweight, thin laptop. It is a fresh look at how bezel light and footprint friendly a laptop can be. In 2018 it's a rapid race to see which manufacturer can deliver a laptop with the least bezel. And Asus is competing around when it comes to the ZenBook series, with the late 2018 model sporting a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio. The new ZenBook 13 gives all the elegance and style user expect from a ZenBook and a whole lot more. With a stunning crystal-like finish and a sophisticated modern design that places it in a class of its own. This ultralight marvel is the thinnest laptop on the planet with a high-performance discrete graphics chip, giving it all the pixel-pushing horsepower user need for creativity and entertainment: editing videos, manipulating photos, or just enjoying their favorite movies and games. At its heart is the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i5 processor which can be boosted to 3.7 GHz when needed. It is paired with 8 GB of RAM, a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card. Fast storage is provided by a 256 GB SATA SSD. So whether users are creating mega-sized office documents, manipulating high-resolution photos, editing videos, or simply taking a break with the latest high-powered games, the ZenBook 13 will hardly keep anyone waiting

In terms of connectivity, the ZenBook 13 isn't so ridiculously thin that it can't fit the goods in. In addition to two full-size USB ports, there's a USB-C, plus a separate charger - which is always handy rather than being forced to switch cables over when charging. There's even an HDMI, microSD card slot (not full size, boo) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. According to Asus, the 13-inch model's battery should see it live for up to 14 hours per charge. A new feature for the 2018 ZenBook is apparent on its trackpad, too. It functions as a standard trackpad, sure, but hit the little button to the top right corner and it imposes a number pad savvily called NumberPad by Asus which can be used to quickly tap away numbers. The keyboard is no shabby effort either, with decent key depression and a soft backlight to help a user see those digits in the dark. Interestingly, the hinge design of the latest ZenBook also angles the laptop into a slightly angled and more comfortable position the more the clamshell is opened: so close it's perfectly flat, but angled back fully the keyboard sits in a more slanted, ergonomic position. As a conclusion, with the ZenBook 13, a user will always be ready to go anywhere. The ZenBook 13 is not just a superbly capable laptop, it's also a powerful style statement. Featuring lightweight build and decent hardware, it is built for users who are always working remotely.
