The ASUS ZenBook UX303UA is a 2015 bestselling 13.3-Inch ultrabook that received positive reviews for its Powerful 6th-generation Intel Skylake Core i5-6200U CPU, 8GB of DDR3L 1600MHz RAM, spacious 256GB SSD and sharp 13.3-inch 16:9 ratio IPS FHD display. Critics praised the stylish design and small form factor as well as the long battery life. Reviewers also responded well to fast 802.11 AC Wi-Fi speeds. Reviewers were critical of the build quality which they said feels cheap and not well put together. Reviewers also mentioned that while the display is perfect indoors the gloss can give off a bit of glare in brighter conditions. The ASUS ZenBook UX303UA is a great machine for users who need a machine to run demanding applications but also require portability.


The Zenbook range by ASUS has become very popular over the years thanks to its slim stylish design, great performance, and long battery life. The ZenBook UX303UA is a new addition to the family and it definitely lives up to the family’s reputation. A gorgeous 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display delivers sharp images with the help of the Intel HD Graphics 520. ASUS SonicMasters audio delivers good sound quality but, as is typical with most laptops, it struggles with the lower frequency ranges.

The latest generation Intel Skylake Core i56200U processor running at 2.3GHz makes multitasking and more demanding applications run with ease. As this machine is not suitable for gaming due to the integrated Intel graphics the 8GB of DDR3L RAM is sufficient. Users were not impressed however with the poor build quality saying the machine felt cheaply manufactured and did not sit flush on a flat surface.

The hinges felt a bit wobbly and the edges did not feel well finished. Another negative is that while the IPS FHD display is great indoors, the glossy finish can create some glare in brighter conditions. All negatives aside this is a stylish, ultra portable machine that performs well when throwing even the most demanding of tasks at it.
