Asus Zenbook UX490UA Deluxe has a very simple design philosophy: Never compromise. It’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with a beauty that reflects a painstaking attention to detail. The perfect curves of the all-aluminum chassis are carved from a single block of metal that then goes through a 40-step process to create the iconic ultra-fine spun-metal finish with its lustrous, silky sheen. A complex two-phase anodizing process is then used to create the elegant golden diamond-cut edges and unique golden ASUS lid logo. The result is a breathtakingly exquisite design that offers the perfect combination of beauty, mobility, performance and productivity.
The chassis of Asus Zenbook UX490UA Deluxe is the size of many 13-inch laptops — yet it features an extra-large 14-inch display. ZenBook 3 Deluxe is constructed from premium, aerospace-grade aluminum alloy. This grade of allow is 50% stronger than standard alloy, allowing the ZenBook 3 Deluxe to have an amazingly thin 12.9mm profile and weigh only 1.1kg.2 ASUS Zenbook 3 Deluxe features 0.55mm thick Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which is the toughest cover glass yet while delivering the damage resistance Gorilla Glass is known.
Fitting a 14-inch Full HD display into a 13-inch frame wasn’t easy.

The challenge in designing a fast, ultra-thin laptop boils down to basic physics. To prevent the laptop from getting too hot, warm air inside needs to be expelled as quickly as possible. For the mighty Intel Core i7 processor in ZenBook 3 Deluxe ASUS engineers had to invent a brand-new cooling system using state-of-the-art components, including a liquid-crystal-polymer fan impeller that’s just 0.3mm thick and a copper-alloy heat pipe with walls that are a mere 0.1mm thick. This innovative cooling system is just 3mm high, and the warm air from the interior is gently expelled via hidden vents in the hinge. The overall design allows for efficient, serenely quiet cooling even under full loads.
The new Quiet Fan app enables you to select the ideal silent level for the task at hand, allowing you to switch between balanced and high performance modes. Turning on Quiet Fan provides you with balanced performance and a standard fan speed for silent computing; while turning Quiet Fan off results in a higher fan speed to cope with high load demands.

Notebooks are not as flexible as a desktop setup when it comes to upgrading the system. You cannot just change or upgrade a component as you can do with your desktop. When you make your choice, you’ve made it.
For this reason, we recommend you to think carefully about what you will do with your next laptop before you make the purchase. In this guide, we want to take you through the factors and features you need to keep in mind while purchasing a new notebook.
When it comes to notebook, size matters. Based on what you want to be doing with your notebook, you’ll want to make sure you pick the right size that’s the right fit for you. As you cannot change the size later, like you can upgrade the RAM or ROM, it is crucial to pick the right size.
Notebook sizes tend to start at 11.6-inches and go all the way up to 17.3 inches. If portability is what you are looking for, you’ll want to go for a smaller sized notebook. Smaller sized notebooks, however, don’t usually support high-end CPUs or graphics card that comes with their 15.6 counterparts.
There are convertibles, also known as 2-in-1 laptops, allow you to run your PC in tablet mode when you fold or remove the keyboard. Convertibles of several brands, including HP and Lenovo, are currently available at Ryans. You can check our online store or physically visit any of our showrooms for a closer look.
If you are a heavy gamer, you should opt for gaming laptops with beefier specs and bulkier form-factor.
Along with the size, screen resolution of your next notebook should also be taken into account. You’ll probably end up staring at your screen hours at a time, so it is important to get a screen that is comfortable to look at.
You need to consider whether you want your notebook to have a touchscreen. Although touchscreens make your tasks easy, sometimes these screens come with undesired glossiness, which could hurt gameplay, editing images and video content. So, think carefully about your tasks to be done and make the right decision. Lenovo Yoga 920 and HP Spectre 13-AF515TU, these two models are currently available at Ryans, you can knock us on our FB page or call us @ +8809604442121 for any query.
Anyways, next jump into the next thing to take into account while speaking about the display, screen resolution. The minimum screen resolution you’ll usually find is 1366x768 pixels. You should go for a 1920x1080-pixel resolution if you want plenty of space to keep things in view. Some modern notebooks also offer 4K resolution but you have to pay a premium to have such high-spec resolution.
If you are a gamer, you must check the refresh rate, as a faster refresh rate can give you a competitive advantage in online gaming.
Viewing angle is another important factor to take into account. A laptop with an IPS display usually offers the widest viewing angle to suit your needs.
For longer typing sessions, you should opt for a notebook that has a comfortable layout with full-sized keys and some space around the arrow keys. The keys should have adequate travel on the downstroke and snappy responsiveness when you let them go. You need to make sure the keyboard has backlit if you often type in dimly lit environments.
Intel’s core-based processors are usually anyone’s preferred choice when it comes to buying a new notebook. In terms of multitasking and multimedia tasks, an Intel core processor offers the best performance in general. Entry-level systems come with core-i3 processors, while the majority of the mainstream computers are powered by core i5 processor.
You should opt for core i7-based system if you want the best performance from your notebook. Extremely high-end laptops house core i9 processors but they come with a hefty price tag.
Some vendors are providing laptops and notebooks that run on AMD’s Ryzen Mobile CPUs. If you are a gamer, you should note that Ryzen Mobile CPUs come with AMD’s own Vega graphics chipsets, which are far better than Intel’s onboard graphics.
Unless you are an extremely lightweight user, you should pick a notebook with at least 4 GB of RAM. 8 GB Ram is considered as a perfect choice for productivity users nowadays. 16 GB of RAM is the way to go if you’re a power user. Gamers may opt for 32 GB of RAM to have the desired gaming experience they want.
Many say the days of hard drives are gone and it is time to embrace SSDs. Slow and bulky HDDs, which generate both heat and noise, are not a good option for thin and light notebooks. SSDs, one the other hand, offer a lot more speed compared to HDDs. These drives also run silently and don’t add much to the weight of a notebook.
But SSDs don’t come with much capacity and these drives are more expensive than traditional HDDs. You will end up with a drive that’s either 128 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB in size but costs more than a 1 TB or 2 TB HDD.
To find a sweet spot, many laptop manufacturers now pair a smaller SSD with a larger hard drive. This allows users to keep the OS on SSD to have the speed benefit and keep media and other data on the HDD.
The battery life of a notebook depends on many variables, such as screen brightness, screen resolution, number of applications running in the background, plus whether or not you remain connected to Wi-Fi networks or Bluetooth devices. The operating system also plays a major role in terms of determining battery life. That’s why notebook with Chrome OS tend to offer better battery life compared to those with Windows 10.
If you run multiple programs at a time, stream lots of online videos, and play high-end games or transfer lots of files over wireless network, then your battery will drain a lot sooner.
Looking at the rating of the battery in watt-hours (Wh) or milliamp-hours (mAh) is an effective way to determine battery life. The larger these figures are, the longer the battery can last.
Due to the limited room around its base, a notebook has far fewer ports than a desktop setup. Some notebooks have as few as two USB ports. In such cases, you may need to unplug one device to plug in another. Larger laptops usually have at least three USB ports, which is fine for most users. Many present-day notebooks have at least one USB 3.0 [USB 3.1 Gen 1] port for faster data transfer, which is ten times faster than USB 2.0. if possible, you should take things a step further and go for a laptop with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, as the data transfer rate is as high as 10 Gbps.
You’re ready to embrace USB Type-C, Thunderbolt 3 ports offer an even better option. Thunderbolt 3 ports have a peak data transfer speed of 40 gigabits per second.
