5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Getting the ASUS ZenBook 13

Our team recently got a chance to play around with ASUS’ new ZenBook 13, which was introduced in IFA 2018. Packed with premium-looking design and compact body, we knew that the device will surely match our needs as we’re always on the go. However, we needed enough time to fully experience its offerings, and as a result, it didn’t disappoint us!

Here are the things we love about the ASUS ZenBook 13, and also the reasons why you should consider getting it. Let’s start!


Dubbed as the most compact 13-inch laptop, the ZenBook 13 just measures 16.9mm x 302mm x 189mm and it only weighs 1.19kg, making it smaller and lighter than other 13-inch notebooks.

Personally, I own a 13-inch laptop but unlike the ZenBook 13, I still couldn’t put it inside my bags. This is why ASUS easily earned two thumbs up from our team, as it was able to pull off a portable laptop that really allows users to work wherever they want. We also noticed how it won’t eat too much space when we’re using it. So, if you want a device that can really fit in your space, then, the ZenBook 13 is a good device to have!

Compact Body

On top of everything and as cliché as it may sound, the ZenBook 13 proved that a “David” can really beat “Goliath.” What we’re trying to say is that, this laptop is tough enough to endure accidental drop, shock, and vibration, as well as extreme altitude, temperature, and humidity even if it's a small machine. This is because it passed the military-grade (MIL-STD-810G) reliability standards.

Cool, isn’t it?


Unlike other laptops, ASUS dressed the ZenBook 13 with a unique spun-metal finish. Hence, the device flaunts a sturdy body that gives off a premium-looking design while maintaining its charisma.

Its slim body makes it look sexy, and to spice up the device, ASUS even released a Burgundy Red variant that appears more sophisticated and premium.

In addition, it comes with refreshing features that you won’t find on other professional laptops. It sports the brand’s ergolift hinge design for comfortable typing experience, full-size backlit keyboard with 1.4mm key travel, and a LED-illuminated numeric keypad.

As the name suggests, the ZenBook 13 is equipped with a 13.3-inch IPS screen with frameless four-sided NanoEdge design. It delivers an impressive screen area, too, as it sports 95% screen-to-body ratio. Having a great 1080p resolution, we enjoyed watching videos using the device as it has good viewing angles, as well as rich and vibrant colors.

The device is also good for editing photos and videos. Thanks to its color accuracy, we're able to edit our outputs without overdoing it.

Moreover, it boasts Anti-Glare coating that allows our team to comfortably use it outdoor.

In case you missed it, the device is geared with Intel Core i5-8265U processor, NVIDIA GeForce MX150 2GB GPU, 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 RAM, and a 512GB PCIe 3.0 x2 SSD.

The ZenBook 13 can easily match professionals and creative artists. Hence, users can expect that it can accompany them on their multitasking. In fact, our favorite thing about the device is that it didn't lag when we're heavily using while switching from one task to another. Our daily tasks include browsing the internet, photo and video editing, watching films, and more.


To keep the fun running, ASUS equipped it with 50Whrs 3-Cell Lithium-Polymer battery. ASUS promised that it can last up to 14 hours. Meanwhile, our actual usage suggests that it can run for almost 8 hours on a single charge. That’s the power we all need, isn’t it?
