Another great addition to the portable ZenBook family – the UX410UQ. This ultrabook surprises with compact chassis, lightweight construction, powerful hardware, good battery life, high-quality IPS panel and great input devices. So where are its shortcomings?
Well, apparently, like all ultra-portable machines with discrete graphics card, the ASUS ZenBook UX410UQ struggles to keep the internals cool under load and when used for everyday work and browsing, the cooling fans don’t stop spinning at all. In any case, the specs sheet is so impressive, it’s hard to miss on when looking for a decently-priced portable solution. The Intel Core i7-7500U, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX with 2GB of DDR3 memory, 8GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD and a 48Wh battery are crammed inside a thin and light aluminum chassis with sleek premium appearance. Moreover, the ASUS ZenBook UX410 doesn’t miss on multimedia capabilities as well – we’ve got an excellent IPS panel and a decent sound quality. It makes us wonder, how ASUS was able to release this gem at this price? With a price like that, the notebook won’t have any trouble competing against Lenovo’s Ideapad 720s and Acer’s Swift 5.
