It runs at speeds between 1.8GHz and 4.6GHz with turbo boost as a powerful high-end CPU. 16GB LP DDR3 RAM is good for a lot of multitasking power for most computer users. 512GB PCIe Solid State Drive has both the storage space and high speed- an overall snappy performance.
You’ll get the free Amazon technical support with your purchase and you’ll need to sign upon delivery of this item because of high price. You also have the option to purchase this laptop with 8GB RAM (UX392FN-XS71) instead of 16GB RAM and that will cost roughly 200 dollars less at the time of this review (prices may change). You can’t really upgrade the RAM if you get the 8GB model. Windows 10 Pro version is pre-installed on this high-end premium machine and you can make use of old the familiar and brand new functions.
The NVIDIA GeForce MX150 is a mid-range graphics card with a video card benchmark score of 2218 with adequate visual power for the mid-range creative and demanding tasks. Please remember that this is not a gaming machine and you can’t expect the performance of those very expensive graphics cards. The amazing four sided frameless NanoEdge 13.9-inch FHD screen with the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution is fit into a 13-inch laptop body, with its impressive 97% screen-to-body ratio, measuring only 2.5mm thin on the sides.
The Zenbook S13 weighs only 2.4 pounds and is less than 0.6 inches thin- it is compact, super slim and lightweight. It is about 12.5% smaller than the previous 13.9-inch Asus Zenbooks. The whole chassis is stronger and tougher with the high-precision CNC-milling process that is better than the regular metal-stamping methods and that gets rid of the unnecessary internal voids. It has the Mil-std-810g military-grade durability. Connectivity options include the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A, 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C, a MicroSD card reader, and an HDMI output. There is no optical drive and you can connect one via Bluetooth or one of the USB ports.
You can expect up to 15 hours of battery life on its 50 Whr lithium polymer battery. You can recharge its high capacity battery up to 60% in only 49 minutes. The ergonomic backlit US standard QWERTY keyboard with long-travel keys of a desktop keyboard is tilted to the most comfy position automatically with the exclusive ErgoLift hinge. Keyboard is silver color and the letters are in soft orange color. You can log into the system with one-touch login and the integrated fingerprint sensor for better security using the Windows Hello.
You’ll get the mini dock and carrying sleeve included in the box. Two external monitors can be connected via the USB-C port. The webcam is not the best quality and the screen is non-touch, does not have the touch function. And you can always hook up a mouse if you’re not too keen on using the trackpad. It is a beautiful modern laptop that is super slim, compact and lightweight, an ergonomic backlit keyboard with ErgoLift hinge, up to 15 hours of battery life, a fast and powerful processor, large memory and SSD storage and more. We do not hesitate to recommend it if you have the budget for a relatively expensive machine.
