They do not stop saying that the sale of computers is slowing down, that purely mobile devices already do everything that many buyers need to connect to the network. But what is to update equipment and new models appear, is not something that has stopped, we’ve seen at CES 2017, and days later with teams like the new Fujitsu , or these new ASUS .
In fact this ZenBook 3 was passed at the last appointment in Las Vegas, but now we have before us what is the formal presentation of the team, surnamed Deluxe , so let the news and changes that come with the two possible configurations to convey.
The “Deluxe UX490A” is a laptop with a 14-inch screen and much desire to please professionals who need to show a good image, in addition to finding a good balance between lightness and performance. Typical in the ZenBook family of computers, but with the specifications that are demanded in 2017.
Thunderbolt support is a whole world to explore, depends on the actual specification that complies we can place an external graph.
What do you play this year? As a processor Kaby Lake-U, family two USB Type-C with Thunderbolt support 3 , up to 16GB of RAM, full HD resolution screens, and lots of thinness: as little as 1.27 centimeters thick, the laptop weighs only 1.1 kilos .
That said, there are two possible models to jump to “Deluxe”, a first with core Intel Core i5-7200U, and another more capable with Core i7-7500U. In both cases we are not a stellar graphics power, we have to be content with the integrated Intel HD Graphics solution 620, which move with guarantees the system, Windows 10 Pro .
The interesting thing about the ASUS equipment is that they are designed internally with an eye on heat dissipation, for the occasion an extra thin cooling system has been developed, only 3 millimeters thick. The portable walks in the average battery capacity, with a unit 46Wh (10 hours of life).
Other important things that we can not leave without commenting are its four speakers – Harman Kardon sound system – aluminum chassis, or the use of the latest version of Gorilla Glass to protect the screen. There ‘s even a sensor footprints – on the trackpad – which will help us to identify with the new Windows.
There are still no prices for the two configurations of the ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA, but we can get an idea by looking at the basic models – without Deluxe -, starting at $ 1,100 and $ 1,600, so we can wait a little longer for each one.
