Asus ZenBook 3 review


Svelte, portable, powerful

Crystal clear display ; Lightweight and very portable ; Reliable fingerprint sensor

Weird fingerprint sensor placement ; A single USB-C port

The Zenbook 3 looks the part of a slick and powerful ultra-portable laptop, only with a mushy keyboard and odd fingerprint sensor placement.

Asus ZenBook Flip S UX370 review


Asus sets the bar high with this versatile performer

Super thin and light ; Vibrant (touch) screen ; Powerful core components

Not the cheapest convertible ; Fingerprint magnet ; Unexciting battery life

A light convertible that packs serious power into its diminutive frame, the new ZenBook Flip S doesn’t compromise on performance… or price.

Asus ZenBook 13 review


A shiny cover brings all the Windows fans to the yard

Decent battery life ; Fast fingerprint sensor ; Stellar display

Janky touchpad ; HDMI port should be USB-C ; Shell is a smudge magnet

The latest ZenBook 13 from Asus isn’t a speed demon, but it has a killer display and a keyboard that’s as smooth as butter. Plus, it finally addresses a key bugbear in Asus’s laptop design.

Asus ZenBook S review


This Ultrabook stands tall

ErgoLift Hinge enhances comfort, cooling and sound ; Nearly bezel-less display ; Reasonable starting price

ErgoLift Hinge isn’t completely unique

The Asus ZenBook S isn’t the world’s thinnest, most affordable or even a 100% uniquely designed laptop, but it still looks like the Ultrabook to treat yourself with right now.

The Asus ZenBook UX410 is a portable 14-inch mid-range laptop, offering strong visuals & a lightweight design. But is it good? We find out...

Slim and light ; Decent connectivity ; Crisp, accurate display

Limited performance ; Speaker positioning ; Touchpad buttons

This Asus laptop sits firmly in the mid-range laptop bracket, with its £599 asking price. For that cash, the ZenBook UX410 delivers a reasonably light and yet pleasingly rugged design, as well as an attractive screen and a comfortable typing experience..

ASUS ZenBook UX51V Review


This thin-and-light notebook features a 15.6-inch IPS display, Core i7 quad-core processor and dedicated graphics. Does lack of a touchscreen kill the deal?

Solid design ; Excellent performance ; Good keyboard ; Good speakers ; Good battery life

Expensive ; Not-quiet cooling fans ; No touch screen
