The ZenBook We've excelled in uncompromising capabilities from the outset, as befits a series designed to provide some sort of competition for the Dell XPS family - but 2019's reincarnation seems to be a new record, not just for the Taiwanese actress but for the entire market.

The new ZenBook S13 has been unveiled, with UX392 as a sub-model to help differentiate it from the previous generation, and features a slim 2.5 millimeter frame only on three sides of the 13.9-inch IPS panel and the 1080p resolutions it offers - so thin it requires a little extra In the center section above the screen to integrate the required webcam. The result is relatively unique and definitely impressive, with a weight of less than 1.1 pounds and a thickness of less than 13 millimeters.

Weird design - and impressive technological achievement

The hardware inside the ZenBook S13 is one of the most up-to-date and advanced to be found on such a computer - the Core i7-8565U quad core of the Whiskey Lake generation, a built-in 8GB or 16GB dynamic memory, NVMe standard SSD with 512GB volume, MX150 (probably in the 1d12 version with a power envelope of 10 watts), a touch pad with a built-in fingerprint scanner, a pair Stereo from Harman / Kardon, connectivity 802.11ac Dual Channel, Connectivity 5.0 and 50-watts with fast charging support.

The new model's weight is slightly higher than its predecessor, in fact, but is also significantly narrower thanks to the tiny frame around the display panel - which was also upgraded to cover 100 percent of the sRGB standard

The main drawback of the UX392 compared to its predecessor UX391 is in its external connections - where Type-C connection supports 3 is sadly gone. Your computer still has a pair of USB Type-C 3.1Gen.2 connections up to 10Gbps and an additional USB Type-A 3.1Gen.2 connection - but don't expect the ability to connect external graphics processing devices or arrays Extremely fast.

Luxury - with a higher price than the previous generation

The new ZenBook will come to the stores in the coming weeks with the price tag of 1,400 dollars to inflate Dynamic 8GB and 1,500 dollars for enhanced model with 16GB. Logical or exaggerated? Welcome to judge for yourself.
