Over the years, manufacturers have put a lot of thought into the design of their creations in a bid to beat their competitors in the tech world. This competition has been an advantage to consumers who now have a wide range of designs from which to choose. With the Asus Zenbook UX310UA, you are looking at a machine with compelling looks.

The manufacturers, having used aluminum all through the exterior, were able to come up with a machine that gives off a glare that is quite attractive. The Asus logo is prominently visible on the surface, with impressive concentric circles emanating from it.

Another exceptional thing about this laptop is that it helps you save money. When you compare it to other machines on the market with comparable features, you get to see what a good deal you are getting. Take the MacBook Air for example. It is quite similar to the Asus Zenbook UX310UA. The differences come about when it comes to thickness with the latter measuring 1.84cm as compared to the 1.7cm of the former. However, when it comes to the amount you need to cough up to get hold of the machines, the Asus Zenbook UX310UA is the better choice.

It’s great that it comes with a USB Type C port, given that the tech world is now heading towards that direction.

The USB 3.0 port allows the use of a USB Charger+ which is an Asus creation which enables the charging of external gadgets even when the laptop is hibernating or off. When using this facility, there is software that helps in the management of the battery, so you do not need to worry that you will run out of charge fast.
