The new Asus ZenBook UX330Uis simply stunning. Its highly elegant unibody aluminum alloy chassis is an incredible 13.5 mm thin, weighing a 1.2 kg feather-light. And with a battery life of up to 12 hours, ZenBook UX330 is taking even the longest working day in its direction. When it comes to the features, ZenBook UX330 checks most of the right boxes and is not very expensive like most Asus laptops. It has the perfect craftsmanship, keyboard, expected performance, and battery life but some aspects such as the screen, trackpad, and cooling fan might use more tuning. If you’re looking for a lightweight notebook with a matte screen and luxury expectations, this is a good choice.
The Classic ZenBook
The beautiful Zen-inspired spun-metal finish is available in your choice of trendy Rose Gold or elegant Quartz Grey. Asus ZenBook UX330U has more than enough capacity to cope with all of your on-the-go productivity needs, with a powerful Intel Core 7th generation processor up to i7. The wide-angle display is also a real treat for your eyes, with its pin-sharp resolution of up to 3200×1800 enhanced by exclusive ASUS Splendid and ASUS Tru2Life technologies for bright, more lively colors and sharp, clear graphics.
The ZenBook Series has pioneered thin and light in action, and ZenBook UX330 continues its proud legacy, featuring a timelessly sleek, all-new design with a thin profile of just 13.5 mm. The use of solid aluminum alloy throughout the lid, bezel, keyboard surrounding, and base, brings the weight down to just 1.2 kg, but it takes hundreds of precisely-controlled manufacturing measures to make it sleek.
The Asus ZenBook UX330U feels more built-in and more durable than other Zenbooks. In the hood and keyboard area, there is still a tiny bit of flex that is barely noticeable. Since the UX330 is based on an internal plastic fRAMe with metal sheets on top, it doesn’t get a body-on-fRAMe design. The metal used in this is thicker and much stronger than other recent Zenbooks.
ZenBook UX330 is designed for serious mobility, with our unique, energy-efficient design that makes it last for up to 12 hours. With fewer trips to the power socket, ZenBook UX330 makes your day more productive.
Li-Polymer battery is used in ASUS ZenBook UX330 which has a highly improved lifespan than a standard Li-ion cylinder battery. Additionally, even after hundreds of charge cycles, Li-polymer batteries maintain much of their original charging power, so you won’t have to worry about degrading battery efficiency. The battery adheres to the highest battery safety standards thanks to a clever combination of hardware and software optimization.
Excellent performance is what ZenBook is known for and in ZenBook UX330 it’s provided by an Intel Core 7th generation up to i7 processor. The CPU is coupled with up to 8 GB LPDDR3 1866MHz RAM, Windows 10 Home, and ultra-fast up to 512 GB SSD storage. The new 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi offers super-fast speeds, and Bluetooth 4.1 easily connects to your devices.
Professionals these days demand the latest technology for easy and smooth operations. And the revolutionary, reversible USB-C port allows you to access the latest high-performance peripherals at high speeds. You can connect to monitors, TVs or projectors with the micro HDMI port with absolutely no hassle.
Keyboard and trackpad
The keyboard on the Zenbook UX330 should be identical to the one on the Zenbook UX305, based on looks and official specifications, but it actually feels great in daily usage, with stronger feedback. The configuration remains the same, with tiny arrow keys and the Power button placed in the top-right corner. The drop is the same as well, for example, the XPS 13 gets a 1.2 mm drop at 1.5 mm, which is pretty good for a sleek ultraportable.
The only thing that makes it different from other ZenBooks is resistance to hit that results in a more precise click and a reliable overall typing experience. ZenBook UX330’s full-size backlit keyboard is robustly built in one piece for a superb and noiseless typing experience. It has an optimized 1.5 mm key travel for a comfy feel.
To provide high sensitivity and incredible accuracy, the glass-covered precision touchpad uses exclusive technology developed for touchscreens on smartphones. Smart Gestures imitate many of the Windows 10’s touchpad features, providing you with the most intuitive user interface.
Amazing sound has always been a feature of the ZenBook family. ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Harman Kardon, delivers the most unbelievable sound on a laptop. A tailor-made mix of superior hardware and cleverly designed software ensure you get the ultimate sound experience from ZenBook UX330.
Too much exposure to the blue light emitted by LCDs is thought to affect eye health, and during long viewing sessions, it can also cause fatigue. ASUS Eye Care mode decreases blue light emissions by up to 30% so that by using Eye Care mode, your eyes are still covered.
