Asus has really been trying to corner the market on lightweight and powerful laptops with their ZenBook Deluxe lineup of laptops and today we are going to look at the newest one to be released which is the Asus ZenBook Deluxe 3 UX490UA-BE029T. This laptop is extremely light and has a 14 inch display in a 13.3 inch chassis to make it even more compact than you would expect with this amount of display area. Below we will see what some of the biggest benefits and downsides are on this model so you can make the decision if it is right for you.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 14 Inches
– As we mentioned above Asus has done a great job of making this laptop extremely light as it only weighs 1.1 KG which is about half the weight of your typical full sized laptop
– One of the ways they have been able to make this laptop so mobile friendly is with the Nano edge design which fits a large 14 inch display into a 13.3 inch chassis
– The illuminated keyboard is a great nice to have feature that has been included which makes it much easier to work in poorly light locations
– The fast SSD hard drive gives you quick boot times and this device supports Windows Hello which gives you a quicker login experience
– Performance isn’t bad on the Asus ZenBook Deluxe 3 UX490UA-BE029T but for the price range we would have expected more than an Intel Core i5 processor and just 8 GB of memory
– The SSD drive is very fast and helps the overall performance but lacks any serious amount of storage space with just 256 GB available
Asus has went all out on the design of this laptop to make it extremely lightweight and it easily beats out much of the competition in this category but the specifications when it comes to performance is just average and maybe a bit below what we would expect from a laptop in this price range.
