ASUS is very serious in competing in the premium notebook market.
ASUS Zenbook UX410 has appeared in the company’s official website, but it’s yet to get a formal announcement. It’s listed as a laptop with 14-inch display, but its slim side bezels of only 6mm makes it seem like a 13.3-incher. While that’s already incredibly slim, it’s actually 0.8mm thicker than Dell XPS 13’s 5.2mm bezels. The good thing about the Zenbook UX410 is that it has its web cam above the display, instead of below it (which is awkward).
It’s powered by an Intel Kaby Lake processor and it will be available from an i3 processor up to an i7, 4GB RAM up to 8GB of RAM, and a choice of either 1TB of hard drive or 512GB of SSD. There’s an option for a discrete graphics card – NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU. In addition to that, the Zenbook UX410 is also made up of aluminum and has a full HD matte display.
