When it comes to laptops, ASUS means business. That’s how we’ve ended up with this all-new ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe, aiming to rectify the flaws of its predecessor.
This, the ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe, is a much-improved version of its predecessor, the ZenBook 3. It comes with better features including a larger display, more advanced networking settings, and a more stylish design.
With that, it’s got a fine look, a top-notch performance, and connectivity. So, is this the new ASUS laptop to crave after?
Design: Luxurious Elegance
The ZenBook 3 Deluxe definitely delivers in the looks department. It is certainly a stunner, donning a deep royal blue exterior with elegant gold trimmings around its edges. It is a bit larger in comparison to the original ZenBook 3 model, housing a 14-inch display. What’s more, its build quality is flawless - its chassis doesn’t bend, crack, or creak like those you see in many inexpensive laptops in Hong Kong. With its stunning exterior, the ZenBook 3 Deluxe is surely one of the sleekest laptops you will lay your eyes upon.
Screen and Sound: Excellent Viewing and Sound Experience
Clad in Corning Gorilla Glass 5, this 14-inch laptop sports an impressive display which provides crisp monochromes and natural colors without oversaturation. Along with its decent 1080p display resolution, these features make for a pleasant viewing experience.
Also, the ZenBook 3 Deluxe comes with a quad speaker setup that handles music in movies excellently. The mids, highs, and lows all sounded very clear, which is pretty impressive for a 12.9 mm-thin laptop.
Hardware: Stutter-free Performance
With a larger dimension than the ZenBook 3, the Deluxe variant is able to fit a powerful Intel processor and has enough room for a dedicated graphics card. It runs at 2.7 GHz which can reach up to 3.5 GHz; thanks to the cutting-edge Turbo Boost technology that enables the processor to run faster. Along with the top-of-the-line chipset is the 16 GB of RAM, which makes for easy and seamless multitasking. The ZenBook 3 Deluxe also comes with a 512 GB of SSD and is free from bloatware and unwanted software, increasing its storage capacity.
Keyboard and Touchpad: Quiet and Smooth
The ZenBook 3’s keyboard is something you won’t ever forget. It makes a pretty good impression since it is comfortable and has a responsive feedback. With that, there’s no way your hands would be paralyzed by cramp since you’re like typing on a cloud.
Meanwhile, the touchpad feels so smooth and only requires a minuscule amount of pressure when making clicks. It can easily recognize multitouch gestures, providing a more convenient user experience.
With all these amazing features the ZenBook 3 Deluxe has, it does appear like an absolute steal for its mid-range price tag. It’s tough on specs and easy on the eyes, making it hold its own against other badass laptops in town.
