Chassis, connectors, screen of this Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA
Robust with its compliance with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, this Ultrabook rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes sports a sober and elegant design with its dark silver Pine Gray case.
Thin and light, this versatile laptop has good connectivity including 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (compared to 1 USB-C maximum usually) guaranteeing very fast transfers, Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote communications and connections, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example, as well as 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
While Ethernet and audio are absent, you can use a USB-C to Ethernet or USB-C to audio adapter if necessary .
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in case of limited ambient light.
As with any laptop with a format less than 15 inches, it does not have a numeric keypad on the right for lack of space.
However, Asus also offers its NumberPad (NumPad) technology to transform the touchpad into a tactile numeric keypad when you need to enter numbers more easily.
In addition, as an infrared technology webcam is present, we can authenticate by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The screen will appeal to a maximum of users and especially creatives because it benefits from 100% DCI-P3 OLED technology. As a result, the colors displayed are much more faithful than the average while the blacks are very deep and the viewing angles are important, both horizontal and vertical.
Here the treatment is brilliant: the colors are even brighter than the average but this implies a sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors), greater than with an anti-reflective panel.
Performance, battery life of this Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA
This Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA is a compact and lightweight laptop computer designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It can indeed last about 10 hours on battery in light use in terms of battery life, which is all the more appreciable as this Ultrabook is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its thinness and its lightness.
Despite everything, this versatile ultraportable delivers good overall performance that is suitable for many users because it integrates a good amount of 16 GB RAM associated with a Tiger Lake low power Quad Core i5-1135G7 Intel processor.
The latter houses within it the Iris Xe graphics part (which we tested) , the performance of which is significantly higher than those of the traditional Intel UHD 620.
As a result, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that are not too greedy in 3D resources.
However, to often carry out heavy work in terms of processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to opt instead for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
On the storage side, there is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives. But if you need more, you can obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / Thunderbolt / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, responsiveness and fluidity are much better on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. This implies in practice starting / stopping, processing and launching of software or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
