Considered as one of the first laptops to conform to Intel’s Ultrabook specification is the Asus Zenbook UX31. This product has just been recently launched this year and it is competing with those products dominating the market right now. This product surely does give the Apple MacBook Air another tough competitor in the best luxury ultraportable title division.
Asus did one excellent job with the design of this baby. Although at a glance the design gives you sneaky peek at Apple’s design with the MacBook Air. This wedge-shaped laptop measures 17mm at its thickest and an amazing 3mm at its thinnest. And did we just mention how sleek this laptop’s design is? ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 2020
This laptop has a distinctive concentric circle design which made of aluminum silver lid. This lid actually catches and reflects the surrounding light which somehow gives that premium look every time you lift the lid.
This gorgeous design also comes standard with an SSD and 1600 x 900 display. This boost can give you plenty space to scroll through those web pages and documents of yours. The UX31 will also surprise you on how crisp movie playbacks can be with it. The viewing angles in this laptop are just simply impressive.
It is but inevitable though to compare this to the MacBook Air mainly because of its design. But the details of what makes each of the products tick definitely make the difference.
When you open the lid, you will notice how the metal keyboard keys are carefully crafted. You can consider the keyboard as sturdy as it looks and it’s a good thing that got that not-too-slippery finish that is just perfect beneath those fingers. As you type your way through the keys, it gives you that quite low-pitched sound that gives you an idea of its quality. Although one strike this UX31 gets is that the keyboard is not backlit. This may not be a big a deal to many but to those thinking of getting a MacBook Air will get the edge in this area.
Battery life of a laptop is one of the things that we always would want to consider. The UX31 will not fail you in that department. This product can hold out five hours and 41 minutes before charging it again. This is also another area where the UX31 matches, if not beats, the MacBook Air. But you’ll be surprise to find a longer battery life which is seven hours with only light usage.
