The series of ultrabook from Asus, namely ZebBook computers, has very good reputation in our redaction. This is due the Asus ZebBook model UX305FA, which has been bought by several people from our office. This is the reason why in our opinion it is worth to buy the latest computer from this series, which is the ZenBook 3 UX390UA. We are looking for every information about this ultrabook from the beginning.
Immediately I emphasize that this is high-end equipment. Currently two variants of Asus ZenBook 3 computer are available in India. The first is equipped with Intel Core i5 7200U CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB SSD storage. This variant is priced at Rs. 113 990. The second model is more powerful, because it has Intel Core i7 7500U processor and the rest of components remains the same. However, for better performance you will have to pay Rs. 123 990.
Asus ZenBook 3 UX390UA is not for players, but this is very good ultrabook.
The integrated graphics card Intel HD Graphics 620 should be good enough for casual players. In my opinion, the most impressive aspect of every ultrabook from ZenBook series is the housing and care for high quality materials. ZenBook 3 UX390UA is very thin (11.9 mm thick) and light (weighing 910 g). This was achieved thanks to a housing made of aluminium used in the aerospace industry. In addition, the screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. It should please people who happen to inadvertently expose their laptop to an injury.
Asus had to give up the 100% passive cooling in ZenBook 3.
This is for me a little disappointing in this model. The ZebBook 3 has a small fan which supports the operation of copper heat pipes. According to the manufacturer’s data, the battery life is very long and it is up to 9 hours. If this is not enough for you, you will be able to charge the battery from 0% to 60% of its capacity in just 49 minutes. This is possible thanks to great fast charging technology used by Asus. The manufacturer had to spare some space on interfaces, because it is here seen a clear minimalism.
Asus ZenBook 3 UX390UA has only a headphone port, power connector and a single USB Type C interface. If you would like to connect an additional monitor, a traditional computer mouse or other accessories, then you will have to use an adapter called Asus Mini Dock, which is attached to the computer. This small portable “docking station“ provides USB Type C port, HDMI interface and the classic USB 3.0. This may be what some of you do not like it, but that is the price of mobility.
