Meet the ASUS ZenBook UX430
The ASUS ZenBook UX430 combines portability with power in an incredible way. Discrete NVIDIA graphics and a range of key inputs provide utility in tasks like photo and video editing, while the slim profile and unique crystal finish make the ZenBook UX430 a perfect choice for life on the move.
The ZenBook UX430 sports a unique pattern on the rear that really catches the eye. Through a process called nanoimprint lithography, the lid has a crystal clear finish that shines beautifully. Both Royal Blue and Rose Gold models enjoy this treatment, while Quartz Grey and Shimmer Gold versions have the classic finish. A slim 15.9 mm profile and 1.25 kg weight make it supremely portable. Bringing it with you into the office, coffee shop, or anywhere life takes you is an absolute breeze.
The ZenBook UX430 is designed for comfortable, long-term use with a handful smartly designed interfaces. The keyboard, with ample key travel, has backlighting for easy typing in low light. The large touchpad supports Windows PTP, which means you can use simple multitouch gestures to get around Windows 10 easily. Just beside the touchpad is a fingerprint sensor which lets you log in quickly and securely via Windows Hello.
The 14-inch full HD display has a generous 178° viewing angle and reproduces 100% of the sRGB color gamut for faithful imagery and video. A matte finish helps you maintain visibility, even in brightly-lit rooms.
One of the key innovations in the ZenBook UX430 is the NanoEdge profile. By repositioning key components to the main body of the laptop, it’s possible to achieve a bezel width of only 7.18 mm. This translates to an 80% screen-to-body ratio; effectively, you get a 14-inch screen in the body of a 13-inch laptop. This means you get more screen with less distraction and less laptop to carry around.
Key to the ZenBook UX430’s ability to perform are the discrete NVIDIA® graphics, available up to the GeForce® MX150. Thanks to deep ties between NVIDIA hardware and Adobe software, editing in Photoshop and Premiere is significantly accelerated. Many other multimedia applications leverage the added processing power as well. Combined with up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512 GB SSD, and the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor, the ZenBook UX430 is powerful enough to handle gaming too.
To stay connected to the world around you, the ZenBook UX430 has a full range of inputs at its disposal. Micro HDMI helps to connect to external monitors, an SD card slot is handy for transferring photos and videos, and USB 3.1 ports in both USB-C and USB-A formats help you connect to many other peripherals, such as your phone, or an external hard drive. Wireless connectivity is equally versatile thanks to dual-band Wi-Fi. It’s up to six times faster than standard 1X1 802.11n.
To keep the ZenBook UX430 going is an ample 50 Wh battery. With it, you can enjoy a solid 9 hours of continuous usage on a single charge. That’s enough to get through a busy day of work without needing to plug in. On top of that, this battery can handle 3X more charge cycles than competing batteries in its class. This means you can keep the ZenBook UX430 for longer, and work harder.
The ZenBook UX430 pumps out premium sound, no matter whether you’re watching a YouTube clip, enjoying your favorite music, or playing an explosive new game. The powerful Harman Kardon-certified twin speakers benefit from a smart amp, which intelligently monitors power draw on the fly so that volume can be increased over three times louder than normal without distortion.
In addition to providing big sound, the ZenBook UX430 is finely tuned to faithfully reproduce the most subtle of tones. These speakers meet the exacting standards of Harman Kardon certification for fidelity. Behind the scenes, ASUS SonicMaster technology helps the ZenBook UX430 produce rich bass, crisp highs, and an ultimately sublime audio experience.
The ZenBook UX430 is the ideal laptop for those seeking a balance of form and function. Learn more about the ZenBook UX430 here at its product page.
