Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB) Laptop Review

 

Blue Chip? Asus' latest 14-inch hybrid is not only highly portable, but it comes with a dedicated GPU as well as security features such as TPM. Business or multimedia? The Zenbook's attempt to perform the splits did not turn out as expected, but at...

compact for a 14-inch laptop ; well-made rigid case ; high quality ; ambitious design, nice blue color ; 2 adapters included ; fingerprint-reader, TPM 2.0 ; decent keyboard, very good ClickPad ; excellent display ; very quiet, never gets annoying ;...

comparatively expensive ; surfaces very susceptible to fingerprints ; lid cannot be opened one-handed ; very slow card reader ; low-performance SSD ; GPU rather slow ; users barely profit from 940MX

Why oh why did Asus opt for the almost ancient and most certainly outdated GeForce 940MX? And why did they not manage a decent implementation of this well-known chip to boot? Remember, the Zenbook’s 940MX is only around 30 % faster than the integrated...

Courte critique du PC portable Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB)

 

Rêve bleu ? Le dernier ultraportable de 14 pouces d'Asus est non seulement très nomade, mais il possède un GPU dédié et des fonctionnalités de sécurité (TPM). Pro ou multimédia ? La tentative du Zenbook de réunir les deux mondes ne s'est pas réalisée...

compact pour un portable de 14 pouces ; châssis rigide et bien fini ; haute qualité ; design ambitieux, couleur bleue réussie ; deux adaptateurs inclus ; lecteur d’empreintes digitales, TPM 2.0 ; clavier honnête, très bon clickpad ; excellent écran ;...

comparativement cher ; surface très sensible aux traces de doigts ; l’écran ne peut pas être ouvert d’une main ; lecteur de cartes très lent ; SSD pas très performant ; GPU plutôt lent ; GPU 940MX profite peu aux utilisateurs

Pourquoi donc Asus a-t-il opté pour la presque ancienne et en tout cas datée GeForce 940MX ? Et pourquoi n’a-t-il pas réussi à intégrer correctement cette puce connue ? Voyez : la 940MX du Zenbook est plus rapide de seulement 30 % par rapport à la...

Breve Análise do Portátil Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB)

 

Chip Azul? O mais recente híbrido de 14 polegadas da Asus não é apenas altamente portátil, mas vem com uma GPU dedicada, bem como recursos de segurança como TPM. Negócios ou multimídia? A tentativa do Zenbook de realizar as acrobacias não foi conforme...

Compacto para um portátil de 14 polegadas ; Carcaça rígida bem feita ; Alta qualidade ; Design ambicioso, bela cor azul ; 2 adaptadores incluídos ; Leitor de digitais, TPM 2.0 ; Teclado decente, clickpad muito bom ; Excelente tela ; Muito silencioso,...

Comparativamente caro ; Superfícies propensas a digitais ; A tampa não pode ser aberta com uma só mão ; Leitor de cartões muito lento ; SSD de baixo desempenho ; GPU bastante lenta ; Os usuários quase não tiram proveito do 940MX

Por que, mas por que a Asus optou pela quase antiga e certamente ultrapassada GeForce 940MX? E por que ala não gerenciou uma implementação decente deste conhecido chip, para começar? Lembre-se que o 940MX do Zenbook é apenas cerca de 30% mais rápido...

Recensione Breve del Portatile Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB)

 

Blue Chip? L'ultimo Asus da 14" ibrido non solo è estremamente portatile, ma ha anche una GPU dedicata e features di sicurezza come il TPM. Business o multimedia? Il tentativo dello Zenbook di eliminare la divisione non torna, ma almeno va molto bene...

compatto per essere un 14" ; case rigido e ben costruito ; qualità elevata ; design ambizioso, carino il colore blu ; 2 adattatori inclusi ; lettore impronte digitali, TPM 2.0 ; tastiera decente, clickpad molto buono ; eccellente display ; molto...

relativamente costoso ; superfici che accumulano ditate ; la cover non si apre con una sola mano ; card reader molto lento ; SSD con prestazioni basse ; GPU piuttosto lenta ; gli utenti non beneficeranno della 940MX

Ma perché Asus opta per la datata e superata GeForce 940MX? E perché non implementa il suo noto chip to boot? Ricordatevi che la 940MX dello Zenbook è di appena il 30% più veloce rispetto alla Intel HD Graphics 620 integrata. Le sole pretese di essere...

Breve análisis del portátil Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB)

 

¿Puntero? El último híbrido de 14 pulgadas de Asus no es solo muy portable, si no que trae una GPU dediada así como características de seguridad como TPM. ¿Negocios o multimedia? El intento del Zenbook de combinar las dos opciones no es el esperado,...

Compacto para 14 pulgadas ; Carcasa rígida y bien fabricada ; Alta calidad ; Diseño ambicioso, bonito color azul ; 2 adaptadores incluidos ; Lector de huellas, TPM 2.0 ; Buen teclado, muy buen clickpad ; Excelente pantalla ; Muy silencioso, nunca...

Un poco caro ; Las superficies se ensucian con facilidad ; La tapa no puede abrirse con una sola mano ; Lector de tarjetas muy lento ; SSD de bajo rendimiento ; GPU lenta ; El usuario apenas saca partido de la gráfica 940MX

¿Por que Asus ha elegido para este portátil la vetusta GeForce 940MX? ¿Por que no consiguieron una mejor versión de este chip gráfico? Recordemos que la 940MX incluida en el Zenbook es solo un 30% más rápida que una Intel HD Graphics 620. Lo único que...

Kort testrapport Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB) Laptop

 

Blauw wonder? Asus' nieuwste 14-inch-hybride is niet alleen uiterst mobiel, maar is ook uitgerust met een discrete GPU en beveiligingsfeatures zoals TPM. Business of multimedia? De Zenbook probeert beide te zijn, wat niet helemaal uitdraait zoal gehoopt.

compact voor een 14-inch-toestel ; goedgemaakte behuizing ; hoge kwaliteit ; ambitieus design, aantrekkelijke blauwe kleur ; 2 adapters inbegrepen ; vingerafdruklezer, TPM 2.0 ; degelijk toetsenbord, erg goede clickpad ; uitstekend scherm ; erg stil,...

betrekkelijk duur ; oppervlaktes gevoelig voor vingerafdrukken ; scherm kan met één hand geopend worden ; erg trage kaartlezer ; trage SSD ; GPU niet erg performant ; gebruiker heeft nauwelijks baat bij 940MX

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier. Kantoor- en businessgebruikers die op zoek zijn naar een presentabele, hoogwaardige en uiterst mobiele laptop zijn het voornaamste doelpubliek. Gamers...

Asus Zenbook UX3430UQ (7500U, 940MX, 512 GB) Laptop

 

Blaues Wunder? Asus wirft einen kompakten und nicht eben günstigen 14-Zoll-Zwitter auf den Markt, der eine dedizierte Grafikkarte, aber auch Sicherheitsfeatures wie TPM mitbringt. Business oder Multimedia? Der Spagat gelingt nur halbherzig. Konsequent...

kompakt für einen 14-Zöller ; gelungenes, stabiles Gehäuse ; einwandfreie Verarbeitung ; ambitioniertes Design, tolles Blau ; 2 Adapter im Lieferumfang ; Fingerabdrucksensor, TPM 2.0 ; gute (Keyboard) bis sehr gute (Clickpad) Eingabegeräte ;...

noch relativ teuer ; Oberflächen extrem anfällig für Fingerabdrücke ; Deckel lässt sich nur beidhändig öffnen. ; schneckiger SD-Kartenleser ; unterklassige SSD ; GPU-Performance zu niedrig ; 940MX bietet kaum Mehrwert

Warum nur hat Asus noch die olle GeForce 940MX von der Resterampe gefischt? Und warum ist es nicht gelungen, diesen 0815-Chip vernünftig zu implementieren? Wir rufen in Erinnerung, dass sich die Mehrleistung gegenüber einer Intel HD Graphics 620 auf...

Top Notebook zu gutem Preis

 

Ein tolles, gut verarbeitetes Notebook. Einzig die glänzende Oberfläche stört etwas. Auch kann Ethernet-Kabel nur per Adapter angeschlossen werden, und belegt somit einen der USB Ports. Diese kleinen Nachteile macht das Gerät aber durch seine...

Sehr handlich und leicht - gutes Busines-Book

Sehr leicht , Tolles Display , Passable Leistung (halt ultra low voltage prozzi) , Tastatur

Touchpad ist komisch, irgendwie weich und schwammi , NIL Oberfläche, sieht nur bis zum ersten anfassen
