Reviews for the Asus Zenbook S UX391UA-EG047T

80% Asus Zenbook S UX391UA — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English Archive.org version
If this is all sounding like it’s worth a closer look, there’s an extensive where to buy list on the Asus website. Some of the lower-end models are available from places like Mwave and JB Hi-Fi, but if you’re looking at the higher end, the options are a little less. Best to start on somewhere like Amazon or Google Shopping and find the best deals.

90% Asus Zenbook S UX391 UA/FA review – the new flagship Zenbook for 2018
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
The ZenBook UX391UA is one of the best 13-inch ultraportables on the market right now. It's thin, light, ergonomic and performs flawlessly, which is truly surprising given the size. This model builds on the previous ZenBooks and addresses most of their issues, so as long as you can live with Thunderbolt 3 only IO and don't need all-day battery life, this might suit you very well, especially since I expect it to be competitively priced in most regions. Read on for the whole story.

Intel 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.

i5-8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
