Four Reasons to Love the ASUS Zenbook UX303LN

 

If you’re into on-site video editing and you love to travel light, or if you’re an avid gamer who hates thick laptops that get hot under your palms easily, you should seriously consider the ASUS Zenbook UX303LN.

Here are four reasons why:

ASUS ZENBOOK UX303 Ultrabook

1. It’s sleek, stylish, and highly “stow-able”

Leave your stand-alone laptop bag at home. Just stow the Zenbook UX303LN in your backpack and hop from meeting to photo shoot to coffee shop to office. Pull out and work or video edit or play as needed. Remember, this is one beautiful and powerful laptop – the ability to get graphic and video-editing work done, anywhere. The ever-so-slightly-thicker-than-ultrabook profile is an acceptable trade off.

2. So much bang for your buck.

The 13.3″ ASUS Zenbook UX303LN has a dedicated (discrete) 2GB video card (NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M with 2GB DDR3). At this price point (P50,000.00 for the basic configuration), neither the 13″ MacBook Air (SRP 50,000.00 for 128GB storage options) nor the 13″ non-Retina MacBook Pro (SRP 55,000.00) can match that graphic-handling power. That’s high end games for you and on-site video editing power for work. This may be the closest thing to an affordable Alienware gear you’ll see in the market today. Lastly, ASUS simply outdid themselves, even beating in specs, power, price, and portability, another of their own 15.6″ laptops.

3. A Full HD display with crisp details and punchy colors

My constant gripe about most 13″ Windows laptops is the “standard” 1366×768 resolution. Well, no more. The Zenbook UX303LN has a 13.3” 16:9 IPS LED multi-touch screen display with a stunning 1920×1080 pixels (FHD). It’s like having a desktop-premium monitor and getting that compressed into laptop dimensions. Of course, it can’t hurt to have a special anti-glare coating to reduce annoying reflections (and squinting) when outdoors – think of working in coffee shops in open air. Also, that great display is a touchscreen – because it’s easier to tap and swipe, instead of reaching for the touchpad, moving the cursor in place, and then clicking.

4. The sound, the sound, the sound.

An incredible laptop deserves incredible sound, and so ASUS developed SonicMaster (incorporating ICEpower®, Bang & Olufsen technology) which produces deep rich bass and crystal-clear vocals, for your movie marathons and 5 seasons of your fave TV shows. Combined with large resonant chambers and the aluminum chassis design, the UX303’s high-quality speakers produce remarkably powerful full-frequency sound. You might just forget that you have a headset or external speakers lying around.
