ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe – the big sister to the ZenBook 3 – is a stylish and powerful little notebook.
The first thing that strikes me about the Zenbook 3 Deluxe is the unique superficial design of the laptop. A rich dark royal blue all-metal case (also available in a gunmetal silver) which is accented with gold details, including a gold backlight for the keyboard. It feels luxe, coming with its own matching case and screen cloth – it's certainly a fashion statement – desirable to both men and women. I have to say this does ooze style and sophistication.
One of the amazing features is the stunning 14inch display that fits snugly into a frame and is no bigger than many 13inch screen laptops. This means that almost the entire internal surface is being utilised to provide a true “full screen” experience. This is complemented by ground-breaking internal speakers; the ASUS Golden Ear team and audio specialists Harman Kardon joined forces to produce the four separate high-quality speakers that are powered by a smart four-channel amplifier to bring you true surround-sound that envelops you with distortion-free, cinema-quality realism. The ZenBook 3 really does give you the most incredible sound you’ve ever heard on a laptop – that will take your Netflix sessions to the next level!
Measuring just 12.9mm thin and weighing only 1.1kg, plus 9 hours battery life mean that the ZenBook 3 Deluxe has everything you need for superb on-the-go performance, perfect for my own mobile blogging. Plus the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor means this machine has some serious processing power – perfect for hires pictures and large video files – this laptop can conquer any job!
