In this post I am going to give the review of the ultrabook that, in my opinion, is the best Ultrabook for gaming which doesn’t cost a lot and that is the Asus Zenbook 13 UX331UN

Build

The laptop is well built, it weighs around 1.15 kg. The screen does have a bit of flex but its not too bad. The top surface is designed in such a way that it look like glass which does make it finger print prove, giving it a look of a cromebook. It come with a fingerprint sensor also.

Keyboard

The keyboard takes a bit of time to get used to, bit its not that bad. The keys have a travel of 1.4 mm. It is back-light but only comes with white lights.

Screen

The screen is a 1080p display which is quite good to look at. It has a brightness of 320 nt. It is a 13 inch screen. The webcam is not good, so if you use the webcam a lot, then you’ll need to attach an external one. It is a touchscreen.

Battery

The battery is a 50 watt hour battery. It provides a battery life of 9 and a half hours with 250 nt of brightness. It is good for students as it can easily go through a full day of normal use.

Speakers

The speakers are of the Harman/Kardon brand. They are nice but the placement of the speakers is at the bottom thus making the audio quality less good.

Port Selection

The port selection is not that nice as it only has —

  1. 1 USB C port which is not thunderbolt 3 compatible
  2. 1 HDMI 2.0 port
  3. 2 USB A 3.0 port

It may be fine for some people but if you need more ports, then it is preferred to carry dongle with you.

CPU, GPU and Storage

This is the part where it really gives a great deal. It packs in an intel i5 – 8250U CPU which a kaby lake R. I come with a Nvidia MX150 which is a quite descent graphics card, it has 2 GB of graphics RAM. It is more than enough for people who are normal gamers. If you want to play a game with many mods running, then this is not the best laptop for you.

BenchMark Test

At 1080p

  1. Fortnite – Medium — 78 FPS
  2. Overwatch – Medium — 75 FPS
  3. Rainbow Six Siege – Medium — 53 FPS
  4. Doom at 720p – Medium — 73 FPS
  5. PUBG at 720p – Medium — 75 FPS

Overall Views

I totally recommend this ultrabook to those who are enthusiast gamers and want a good laptop at an affordable price. This laptop has a good battery life so I also recommend this to students. The graphics card is a nice one providing good fps at medium settings. It is very portable too.
