Asus ZenBook UX430UA


Asus ZenBook UX430UA review: A supremely portable and light laptop that's great for productivity.

Supremely portable ; Great keyboard and trackpad ; Anti-glare screen is great for productivity ; Decent performance

Not the best value ; Lid picks up fingerprints and smudges ; Disappointing battery life

Asus ZenBook 14 UX433


Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design - we take a look at IFA 2018, including the new lighter build, redesigned hinge, and light-up numpad that's actually built into the touch pad.

Asus UX430UA review: Sturdy and light, but can we have more graphics?


Asus UX430UA is sleek-looking, ultra-portable laptop holds a lot of promise when it comes to design and portability. But is this enough to wean away users from Apple's MacBook Air? We find out in our review.

Asus ZenBook UX430UA - Snel en stil voor een scherpe prijs


Van de vele ZenBook-modellen die Asus in zijn assortiment heeft, is de UX430UA de aantrekkelijkste variant. Het is niet de allerdunste uitvoering, maar daardoor blijft er meer plek over voor aansluitingen en is de koeling goed op orde. De laptop biedt...
