ASUS UX390UA-GS041T: Overview
The ASUS ZenBook is one of the best selling laptop series not only in the UK, but in other markets like North America and Asia. The ASUS UX390UA-GS041T is part of this series and brings a number of improvements from previous ZenBook laptops, incluing its all new processor.
One of the most interesting hardware components of the ASUS ZenBook 3 UX390UA-GS041T is its new Intel i5 processor. The i5-7200U is a dual core processor and part of the seventh generation of Intel chips, called Kaby Lake. It has a base frequency of 2.50 GHz and a maximum turbo of 3.10 GHz.
The dimensions of the Asus ZenBook 3 are also one of its highlights. It is 11.9 mm thin and has a weight of less than 1 kilo, making it light to carry and very versatile. Its 12.5 inch display has Full HD resolution and is ideal to use for both working and entertainment purposes.
The Asus UX390UA-GS041T is certainly one of the best ultra thin laptops available in 2017. It has a sturdy, thin and beautiful chassis, and also a modern hardware.
Apart from the positive aspects mentioned above, this laptop also has a 512 GB SSD, which I consider the optimal laptop storage currently. Its battery life is also quite excellent with 9 hours of duration, according to the manufacturer.
It would be better if this Asus ZenBook 3 would have one or two more USB ports.
Depending on your needs, you might need even more processing speed than the i5-7200U can offer. If this is the case, you can also check the ASUS UX390UA-GS063T, which has a very similar hardware as the UX390UA-GS041T but offers a faster processor (i7-7500U) and more RAM.
