First thing first, we did not get a chance to perform the Asus Zenbook ux430uq unboxing. So dive right into the review of this device. Design wise, Asus Zenbook ux430u is one sleek laptop! It is small and compact, and very thin. In terms of thickness, it is the same as Dell XPS 13 and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Also, at just 1.3kgs, it is really light. It is one of the thinnest laptops I’ve used, and I, personally, think all notebooks should be built like this. You won’t have any problems carrying it around, be it in your backpack, or even a messenger bag for that matter.

The keyboard and trackpad on this laptop are great. The keyboard was fun to type on with a good amount of feedback. The 1.4 mm of keyboard travel is decent, and we can’t expect more than that on a laptop this thin. The arrow keys, however, are smaller than other keys, and that’s something you’ll have to get used to.

The trackpad is also really nice, with a good feel. It’s definitely better than the plastic ones, but this isn’t one of the best trackpads around. Again, the Dell XPS 13 has a slightly superior trackpad, with better accuracy. the fingerprint sensor on the top right of the trackpad is a bonus, and it’s also pretty fast as well.

In the performance department, this laptop shines through and through. It comes with the latest Quad-core 8th gen i7-8550U processor. Now this 15W processor is based on 14nm technology, and its base clock is about 1.8 GHz, but it has been configured at 1.99 GHz in this laptop. It does go all the way up to 4 GHz, and combine that with a 16 GB RAM – which isn’t upgradable by the way.

We kind of know that ultra-portable notebooks like this one, aren’t meant for gaming. But it does have a 2 GB MX150 graphics.

You can do light gaming on this laptop, like CS: GO or DOTA 2. For the Asus Zenbook ux430ua gaming review, I also tried FIFA and they ran without any hiccups.

The battery life on Asus Zenbook ux430uq ultrabook is good, but not as good as the competition, like that of the Dell XPS 13.

As for the storage, you get a 512 GB SSD, which, isn’t NVMe. But it’s still fast, providing about 550 MB/s of Read speeds and up to 510 MB/s Write speeds on our tests.

So as for my verdict, this is a laptop for those who want lightweight and portability along with a sturdy build. It also gives you a really good performance, and for that, the price of Rs.130000 in Nepal isn’t bad. Yes, it costs $1100 internationally and is priced nicely here too.
