The ultrabook comes with a strong and steady aluminum body and looks well-crafted.
It is slim and light as it weighs only 3.2 pounds and is 20 millimeters in thickness, making it easy to carry and to use on the go.
The keyboard has decent key travel. The backlight option is a functional feature that users who may be using it in the night or in the dark will appreciate.
The touch pad is just the right size and is comfortable to use.
Storage wise, the laptop comes with a 256 GB SSD which aids very fast and quick loading.
Asus leaves no room for complains in terms of display. The 1080p display is fantastic.
The color accuracy is pretty good.
The touch screen works well. Functions like scrolling and zooming work nicely.
Performance wise, the ultrabook can handle web browsing, office applications and low requirement games without running on load.
The laptop doesn’t run hot on prolonged use and users will hardly notice any fan noise. It is one of the quietest laptops.
The Cons – ASUS Zenbook UX303LB
The lid of the laptop seems to shut too tightly. Unlike other laptops, its lid doesn’t leave much gap when shut and therefore, some users may have a problem sliding their fingers on the edges while opening it.
The keyboard although decent, could have been better. The keys feel flimsy on typing fast.
The track pad at times isn’t responsive and responses may be delayed at times. Some users may even find it easier to use an external mouse.
A major pitfall is the speakers and sound quality. The speakers are located on the sides. Therefore the sounds are hardly audible. Additionally when it is placed on the lap nothing can be heard.
While the ultrabook remains cool on performing tasks like web browsing and typing, it does tend to go on the hot side when it runs on load.
The laptop is the perfect combination of portability and performance. It has a solid display, one of the best in its range. The average touch pad and the sound quality, when weighed against the pros of the laptop, seem almost insignificant. As the laptop is best for portable use, most buyers will be using headsets anyway. The battery life too is on par with other slim ultrabooks with similar specifications and features. ASUS Zenbook UX303LB is a solid over all laptop that offers quality performance at a competitive price.
