First Look: ASUS ZenBook 13 UX333 in Burgundy

ASUS ZenBook UX333

Earlier in January, we got a hold of the new ASUS ZenBook 14 UX433, one of the world’s most compact laptops to date. It’s super lightweight and ultra slim, but quite powerful when running various programs.

The 14-inch UX433 features a beautiful chrome finish that is a delight to look at. Complemented by barely there bezels, it gives up to 95 percent screen-to-body ratio for near-borderless visuals. It’s among the first of the ZenBook models to use a unique patent-pending method by ASUS, called four-sided frameless NanoEdge display. The technology basically rearranges the display PCB board to allow further reduction of its bezel size.

This week, though, we got to meet a new model from the ZenBook series, and it arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The ASUS ZenBook 13 UX333 in Burgundy Red is as fresh as your girlfriend’s manicured hands.

Like the UX433, the Burgundy UX333 features a slim and lightweight form factor. It carries the same four-sided frameless NanoEdge display that manages to keep an optimal position for its webcam. The camera remains at the top edge, and even features 3D IR capability for fast face-login. With a four-element lens, it promises to take sharper and clearer pictures even in the dark.

What makes it extra beautiful is the ErgoLift hinge that makes viewing and typing positions more comfortable. It opens the screen up to 145 degrees, while lifting the bottom panel up to 3 degrees from surface. This allows for better cooling performance as well.

Like the UX433, the ASUS ZenBook UX333 also has the dual-function NumberPad, which I really like. For people who work with numbers a lot, this is a great feature that can help boost productivity. It can be toggled on or off from the touchpad, so there is no wasted space on the keyboard.

The ASUS ZenBook 13 is the world’s most compact 13-inch laptop yet, and measures smaller than an A4 sheet of paper. It is among the lightest at 1.09kg and comes in a Blue colorway, too.

The ASUS Zenbook 13 UX333 carries the latest 8th generation Intel Core processors, 8GB RAM, and various storage options. The  Burgundy Red version will be available by March 2019 in all ASUS concept stores and authorized resellers nationwide for P66,995.
