Zenbook 3 UX390UA

We’ve had our Zenbook 3 UX390UA for almost a month now and we feel that with a month of using it, we can give a full review on whether it’s worth your hard earned money and if it can actually deliver what it promised which is style, function, and power.

Style/Look

No one can dispute that the Zenbook 3 UX390UA is gorgeous. The whole look is just so stylish that even if you carry it with you if you were wearing a long gown or tux, you’d be okay because it fits. This is how sleek it is.

It is also very light, lighter than the MacAir as a friend of mine said when he compared the two.

Battery Life

It stated that it can last 9 hours on normal usage but since we use it extensively (Spotify, video editing, games, series, blogging, Facebook, et al) it lasts around 6 hours for me which we think is pretty awesome.  Other laptops we tried before lasted 2 hours max and then I need to charge which bothers me because it’s also heavy.

Function

We like that we can do video editing on this beauty and it does not hang. Yes, you read that right. We use Vegas Pro and it works like a charm. No lagging, no failure, just plain smooth ride. It can also render videos with no issues and the monitor is more than good enough when it comes to clarity and graphics.

Portability

This Zenbook 3 UX390UA is something you can carry around with you and not suffer from backache. In fact, it is so lite and compact you can carry it in your handbag. Yes, it fits in a regular handbag of a woman. We know this because we have tried it.
