Reviews for the Asus Zenbook UX303UB-DH74T
High resolution at a cost. The UX303 series has been around since the days of Sandy Bridge, but this is the first Skylake QHD model to make it into our labs. Unfortunately, the upgrade comes with a couple of consequences.

Overall, we were hoping it would perform a bit better in our benchmarks, but we like the ZenBook UX303UB anyway. For the fair price of $1,299, it offers ample memory and storage, an adequate keyboard, and a topnotch 3,200x1,800 touch screen with wide viewing angles and sharp detail, not to mention decent audio for enjoying songs and videos.

Asus has managed to impress us again--not because of the attractive and elegant aluminum good looks of this Ultrabook... that's been the same for a few years. Sure it's still very good looking, but this time around we're impressed with how they've refined it, updated it and fixed design issues while setting an extremely competitive price that's hundreds of dollars below the big name competition.

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.
