Asus Zenbook UX410

Asus is working on a new laptop in its Zenbook line , an ultrabook that comes with a very elegant design and at a price that is quite affordable for all budgets. The UX410 will be a step behind the large premium ultraportables, thus facilitating its acquisition to anyone who has a somewhat more limited budget but does not want to do without things like performance and external design on their computer.

Although the Zenbook UX410 has a 14-inch screen , its 6-millimeter bezels make its size look like the standard 13.3-inch model. On the outside, its design stands out for the presence of aluminum and brushed metal finish with which we will quickly relate it to the rest of its kind, the Zenbooks . As the thickness is 18 mm with a weight that exceeds slightly over half a kilo .

Several options to choose from inside

One of the most interesting points of the Zenbook UX410 is that we can choose the hardware that best suits our needs. From the processor to the RAM to the hard drive storage. It will also be available in two colors inspired by nature, gray quartz or rose gold.

If you want to choose the UX410 model according to its processor , you will have three options. All are the Kaby Lake from Intel, but we can go for an Intel Core i7-7500U , an Intel Core i5-7200U or finally an Intel Core i3-7100U. RAM, meanwhile, will only have two variants, we will have the option of the classic 4 gigs or on the other hand we can go up to about 8 gigs of DDR4 RAM. And nobody worry about if we fall short, since it is expandable up to 16 gigs.

The storage is not a problem, since the configuration can range from 500 GB to 1 TB . But if we are looking for faster, the option will be to go to an SSD with three different options: 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB. In short, various options so that we can store everything we want without any problems.

As for the screen, it is 14 inches but its 6-millimeter bezels make it physically occupy the same size as a 13.3-inch screen. The resolution that we will offer 1920 x 1080 pixels .

This Zenbook UX410 will have two models for sale, the ' UA ' model and the ' UQ ' model . It will be the second, the 'UQ', which has a dedicated graphics card, specifically a GeForce 940MX . This being the differential point between one model and another, the rest of the characteristics are the same for both: it has two USB 2.0 ports, one that is USB 3.0 and one USB type C. It also has HDMI input, audio connector and 802.11 WiFi ac.
