Chassis, connectivity, display of Asus ZenBook 14 UX434FL-A6013T
13% more compact than the previous generation Zenbook UX430, this Ultrabook sports a stylish original Royal Blue design with very thin screen edges for a 92% high screen / chassis radio. Its ErgoLift hinge raises it 3 ° forward when opened to improve its cooling and it is robust because it conforms to the American MIL-STD-810G military resistance standard.
This thin and light computer has good connectivity. There are 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect wirelessly wirelessly, a convenient HDMI video output to connect easily to a TV or monitor for example, a port audio and 2 USB (USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 compatible), USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
Thanks to the Infrared technology of the webcam, one can identify easily and quickly on the system by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit which is very convenient to distinguish its keys in the dark.
In addition this versatile blue Ultrabook compact has a 2nd screen. Touch, it is positioned in place of the traditional touchpad and is called ScreenPad 2.0.
The ScreenPad can obviously function as a classic touchpad, but also according to the needs of touchpad or note-taking system. To discover more about the ScreenPad and its features, check out our dedicated test .
100% sRGB and IPS, the display reproduces colors more accurately than average and provides comfortable viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. Brilliant, it revives colors but is sensitive to reflections in bright environment (ex: outdoor). On such a PC that is nomadic, we expect more antireflection.
In any case with its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen is well suited for displaying High Definition content.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ZenBook 14 UX434FL-A6013T
The Asus ZenBook 14 UX434FL-A6013T can appeal to those looking for a compact, high-definition notebook for versatile mobile use.
Side autonomy, put in effect about 9 hours of battery operation far from a socket in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is clearly facilitated by the weight of less than 1.5 kg and the compactness with great finesse.
To do this, it relies on energy-saving components. This is the case of storage entrusted to a SSD that competes with hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB. But the SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being less energy, more shock resistant and silent.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a better fluidity and responsiveness than a daily hard drive, with startups / stops and software launches much faster.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this thin and light computer. Consisting of a good amount of 16GB RAM above average and a Whiskey Lake low-power Quad Core i7-8565U processor, it delivers good overall performance that can satisfy many users.
However, those who want to regularly perform heavy work in processor resources will benefit from opting for a PC with a non-low-power processor.
Finally, this versatile blue Ultrabook boasts NVIDIA Optimus technology that assesses graphics needs in real time. In function, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Intel UHD 620 integrated in the Quad Core i7 and the GeForce MX250 dedicated card.
Optimus favors the maximum Intel UHD 620 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce MX250 more greedy and powerful.
The GeForce MX250 is able to run games not too demanding graphics resources. And just like the Intel UHD 620, it obviously allows you to watch photos and videos.
