ASUS ZenBook 13 UX331UA (i7-8550, GeForce MX150, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Powerful long runner. The ZenBook 13 does not lack in power. ASUS has equipped the slim Ultrabook with a quad-core processor and a dedicated graphics card. Coupled with that is a quick SSD, long battery life and a good display. Nevertheless, the...

IPS display ; Full-HD display ; stylish metal case ; powerful ; rarely gets warm ; good battery life

CPU throttles on battery ; significant Turbo Boost fluctuations at full load ; GPU is factory underclocked ; loud under load ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; no NVMe-SSD

The ASUS ZenBook 13 scores highly by fitting both a powerful CPU and GPU into a compact chassis. This comes at a cost though, as the case dimensions precluded ASUS from including a cooling system that could adequately cool the device. Among other...

Asus ZenBook 13 UX331UAL review: Hands-on

 

We've gone hands-on with the new ZenBook 13 at CES 2018 to see how it shapes up to the competition. At less than 1kg this is one of the lightest laptops around, without sacrificing either performance or ports. Find out what we think in our hands-on...

Kort testrapport ASUS ZenBook 13 UX331UA (i7-8550, GeForce MX150, SSD, FHD) Laptop

 

Krachtige marathonloper. De ZenBook 13 heeft geen tekort aan rekenkracht. Asus heeft de dunne Ultrabook uitgerust met een quad-core CPU en aparte GPU. Samen met de vlotte SSD, lange looptijden en het goede beeldscherm heeft Asus een goede prestatie...

IPS beeldscherm ; Full HD beeldscherm ; Stijlvolle metalen behuizing ; Krachtig ; Wordt nauwelijks warm ; Lange looptijden

Verminderde CPU prestaties op accustroom ; Significante Turbo Boost fluctuaties bij volledige belasting ; GPU is vanuit de fabriek beperkt ; Luid onder belasting ; Geen Thunderbolt 3 ; Geen NVMe-SSD

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier.Ondanks de kritiek is de ZenBook notebook nog steeds een goede alleskunner met reserves voor gamen.

Test Asus ZenBook 13 UX331UA (i7-8550, GeForce MX150, SSD, FHD) Laptop

 

Potenter Langläufer. An Rechenleistung mangelt es dem ZenBook 13 nicht: Asus stattet das schlanke Subnotebook mit einem Vierkernprozessor und einem dedizierten Grafikkern aus. Dazu gesellen sich eine flinke SSD, lange Akkulaufzeiten und ein guter...

IPS-Bildschirm ; Full-HD-Bildschirm ; schickes Metallgehäuse ; viel Rechenleistung ; erwärmt sich kaum ; gute Akkulaufzeiten

CPU wird im Akkubetrieb gedrosselt ; CPU-Turbo schwankt bei andauernder Volllast deutlich ; GPU ab Werk gedrosselt ; laut unter Last ; kein Thunderbolt 3 ; keine NVMe-SSD

Das Asus ZenBook 13 punktet mit seiner Kombination aus Kompaktheit, starker GPU und starker CPU. Die Kompaktheit verhindert aber, dass insbesondere die GPU ihre volle Leistungsfähigkeit ausspielen kann. Es fehlt der Platz für ein ausreichend...

“De fijnste, kleinste en lichtste laptop EVER!”

 

Als startende ZZP'er zocht ik een laptop waar ik zowel thuis als op allerlei andere plekken kan werken. Ik ben ZO blij met deze laptop en kan 'm dan ook van harte aanbevelen. Het formaat is perfect, past zo in mijn handtas, start op binnen een paar...

“Excellent choice”

 

It is a solid computer and flies through my everyday tasks. I use it mainly for school work, watching videos, and reading stuff. The battery life is also pretty decent. This laptop is among the few where you can raise the screen with one hand instead...

Consumer review (coolblue.nl)

“Geweldige laptop!”

 

Het is een super fijne laptop in gebruik. Hij is snel, compact en hij is lang te gebruiken zonder op te laden. Als je een 15,6 inch laptop gewend bent, moet je misschien wel even wennen aan het beeldscherm omdat het allemaal iets kleiner is (logisch...

Fijn formaat en niet zwaar ; Snel met opstarten en in gebruik ; Lang te gebruiken zonder opladen ; Verlicht toetsenbord ; Mooi design

Vingerafdrukken zie je heel erg ; Prijs
