Specs

Processor: Intel Core i7

Memory: 16 GB of RAM

Storage: 512 GB SSD

Screen: 14 Inches

OS: Windows 10

Benefits

– As we mentioned above Asus has fit a 14 inch display into a 13.3 inch chassis so you still get a great amount of viewing space but in an ultra compact and light laptop
– Talking about light this laptop weighs just 1.1 KG which is about half the weight of your typical full sized laptop
– Just because it is thin and light doesn’t mean that they didn’t pack it full of high end performance as the Intel Core i7 processor and 16 GB of ram makes sure it can easily handle just about any challenge
– The large 512 GB SSD drive gives this laptop super quick boot times along with enough storage to keep most users happy

Downsides

– Battery life isn’t necessarily bad as it can give you up to 9 hours on a single charge but for the price of this laptop we can understand why some consumers would expect more
– Talking about price this model is far from budget friendly and unfortunately may be out of reach for the average consumer due to the high price tag
– The Royal Blue color looks quite good on this model but may not be for everyone

Verdict

If searching for a powerful and mobile friendly laptop you are not going to find much better than the Asus ZenBook UX490UA-BE043T but unfortunately the high price tag means it may not be affordable to all.
