ASUS Windows 10 Laptop Zenbook UX305LA-AB51 Review

Do you seek for a brilliantly constructed lightweight Ultrabook at a reasonable price tag? Try to take a peek on this Asus Windows 10 laptop before making your verdict. With a 12.8 x 8.9 x 0.6 inches dimension and 2.9 pounds weight, Intel Core i5, 8GB, 256 GB SSD, beautiful color, you might want to keep it for life.

A Remarkable Display To Use (And See!)

The screen is awesome. It’s a matte completion which truly eliminates glare, even with a splendid light behind you. Nope, you won’t see any impression of the light by any means with this Asus Windows 10 laptop’s Anti-Glare Matte Display

The Full HD IPS resolution is, and even with the local display settings boosted for the HD screen resolution, all the visuals can still be read comfortably. You can change text size if you want, however, the text is not super small some other HD screens.

There is an elastic gasket the distance around the outer edge of the bezel that will do 2 things. It will keep the metal screen lodging from rubbing against the metal keyboard cover and scratching them both up. It will somehow protect against water getting in if the cover is shut. This may prove to be useful if you bring Zenbook with your backpack under the rain. But, remember, it’s not like a real waterproof device.

The Island Keyboard and Clickable Trackpad

The Zenbook has an island key set up which offers ease in typing. The power button put over the backspace might gives a chance of accidental shuts off if you often use it in typing. But, it’s nice to see that there isn’t a column of framework catches over the function keyboard. Trackpad, be reminded, clicks a little when you tap it. This feature makes some people complain about it.

The keys travel deep into the chassis. That what makes this laptop thin. On the other hand, they do not have an exact snap reaction which implies you can’t naturally tell whether a hit has been done appropriately or not, at any rate with one’s style of writing. That prompts a decent measure of missed strokes in the first hours of utilizing this keyboard. A user needs to get used to hit every key a touch harder before long.

The trackpad, be reminded, clicks a little when you tap it. It’s a kind of accurate, smooth and appropriately isolated from the palm-rest. It registers taps and motions well, even those extremely tender taps and swipes. The surface is snapping capable, yet in the meantime solid and burdensome. If you are a tap client, you would have any trouble. But if you’re a type of pressing for clicks user, you might need some time to practice with this one.

Shockingly there’s no real way to really change the cursor’s speed or reaction, since this is an Asus Touchpad and the drivers offer no space for customization. That has been an issue with all the Asus portable PCs tried in the most recent years and there’s no sign something is going to change soon.

A Reliable Performance and Extra Cool Stuff for Everyday Use

This Asus Windows 10 laptop is quick. The laptop works perfectly in regular use, boots up fast, resumes in around one second from sleep and handles well all the essential assignments I tossed at it, including using the internet, watching videos, and playing some games.

The speakers on this Zenbook are entirely great. There are two of them, on the left and right edges. They don’t push out awesome sound, however are loud and don’t misshape at high volume, so most users might be thrilled with what they’re prepared to do.

As for the mobility, this Asus Windows 10 laptop network offers there are Bluetooth, LAN and Wi-Fi AC. The battery that is used by the Core i5-5200U processor and FHD screen can survive around 6 to 10 hours – which is kinda cool.
