Asus Zenbook UX410: Design and Features

The Zenbookasus-zenbook-ux410-review series is practically invented with thinness and lightness in mind, but not compromising performance. The moment you hold this laptop, you will definitely feel that it is a premium laptop. Although it is not as premium finish as the new MacBook Pro, it feels like MacBook in its own right. When you open the lid and turn on the screen, you will instantaneously adore the very thin bezel at just 6mm making it to have 80% screen to body ratio. The display is a 14 inch Full HD monitor yet packed in a typical 13 inch body. It has 276 pixels per inch that makes every tiny detail pin-sharp and crystal-clear. ZenBook UX410’s display features an ultra-wide color gamut of 72% NTSC ,100% sRGB, and 74% AdobeRGB. In short, it has more colors to make better colors in a bigger screen yet smaller laptop.

Thankfully, the camera is located at the top so the camera angel is normal unlike Dell XPS 13 where the camera is facing upright.

This laptop has plenty of ports including an audio jack, 1 USB 3.1 TYPE C port, 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 port, 1 HDMI and a card reader. The full-size backlit keyboard is sturdily constructed in a single piece for a superb typing experience.

One thought on “Asus Zenbook UX410 Specs and Review

  1. Hi! Very helpful review. I’m shopping for a nice portable laptop good for heavy-duty writing and media streaming. This Zenbook sounds like a great option. I was wondering if you could tell me a bit more about the heat emission/dissipation, you know, since watching movies/series tend to produce a lot of heat? Also, ASUS website does not say anything about the laptop including LAN ports or Bluetooth… TIA
