Hands-On Review: ZenBook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red

Attention Gentlemen.

This blog post is for you. But the ultimate beneficiary is your wife.

Valentine’s Day is one of the most important dates aside from your anniversary or her birthday. On your anniversary, you go date her on a fine dining restaurant, and buy her flowers. On her birthday, you probably do a similar routine.

But if you want some 10,000 pogi points from your wife, the Zenbook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red is a perfect gift. And when you do, she might forgive you if you skip the first two significant dates I mentioned above.

Here’s why.

Zenbook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red Build

The Burgundy Red version is very compact and thin at 0.67 by 11.9 by 7.4 inches only. It is by far 14% smaller than the previous Zenbook. The display is made up of mostly screen having a 2.8mm bezel on the size and a 3.3mm at the bottom. Also, this super portable notebook is very light at only 2.7 lbs.

Moreover, this notebook doesn’t lack the ports that are absent on the similar-sized Macbook. The ASUS Zenbook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red has USB 3.1 Type-C port, a full-size USB 3.1 Type-A and an HDMI port on one side of the laptop. The other edge has a USB 2.0 port, a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack.

When you open the laptop, it will tilt up to 145 degrees and the bottom part of the display will lift the body which ASUS define it as ErgoLift. The ErgoLift hinge tilts the keyboard at a 3-degree angle providing air to flow under it.

And talking about the build, this laptop has passed the MIL-STD 810G torture test.

MIL-STD-810G is a series of tests designed by the U.S military to test its equipment limits in various conditions where it is expected to be used (environment) or transported (shocks). The test varies according to the nature, size and weight of the equipment tested. – UberGizmo

That means, if wifey is kind of clumsy and the laptop may incur bumps and accidental drops, you are pretty assured it won’t break.

The Zenbook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red sports a glossy 13.3-inch display with a full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) native resolution.

Even with a super thin bezel, Asus was able to incorporate a 720P webcam at the center. The same camera can be used for face recognition.

Zenbook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red TouchPad with Numeric Keys

I don’t know about you but I am just amazed how ASUS added something to the touchpad rather than its basic purpose. The touchpad of the Zenbook 13 UX333 illuminates and becomes a numerical keypad.

Now you can do your simple math.

With a long press on the upper right of the touchpad, the numerical keys appear.

The best part is you can still work with your touchpad as is while the keys are enabled.

The most compact Zenbook today

The Zenbook 13 UX333 is the most compact Zenbook as of today. It is even smaller than an A4-sized paper!

This one weighs 1.1kg with the battery.

The dimension of the Zenbook 13 UX333 is 30.2(W) x 18.9(D) x 1.69 ~ 1.69 (H) cm. It can fit your wife’s bag and she can work anywhere she desires to.

Conclusion

The previous Zenbook is the thinnest, but it is not the most compact. The Zenbook 13 UX333 (Burgundy Red) is the most compact. It is not a simple portable laptop. It is powered by an Intel Core i5-8265U Processor 1.6 GHz (6M Cache, up to 3.9 GHz) plus there is an 8GB RAM onboard. There’s an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 video graphics card to supercharge your laptop for both work and play.

Where to buy the Zenbook 13 UX333 Burgundy Red

The ASUS ZenBook 13 is available in ASUS Robinsons Ermita Concept Store and all ASUS Concept Stores nationwide. The official retail price of the Zenbook 13 UX333 is P66,995.
