 Reasons for buying an
ASUS ZenBook  

How many of us have wondered if the ASUS ZenBook laptop is a good option to buy. I think many, right? The reason is that until recently, we had not heard a lot about this brand.

ver, this has changed since the company has been placed gradually among the laptops most sold in the market for its innovation, design, and quality, competing with big companies like Apple, Dell, and Lenovo.

Asus Laptops

 

According to analyst house IDC (International Data Corporation), ASUS is currently fourth place in the computer sales worldwide, being above the Apple company.

I must clarify that the MacBook sales decline is not because of a deterioration in product quality, the result is because they have not had a refreshment for a long time.

So it is believed, the customers are waiting the next MacBook 2016 which could be launched in September 2016 with the new iPhone 7 or until December.

I am sure right now you are asking yourself how is possible that I am comparing this brand with big business for laptops as Apple, Lenovo, and Dell.

Let me tell you I am not the one who is comparing them, ASUS customers do. Since they found it is possible to have almost everything that the laptops (in specific, Notebooks) from those companies have, for a better price.

Although some customers have complained about certain details of the ZenBook like no backlight on the keyboard, some missing keys such as home/end/PgUp/Pgdown and sound that is not loud; ASUS ZenBook is still a great option for both students and business people because of its performance.

Are you still not convinced?

Here are three reasons to get an ASUS ZenBook 

1.- You get quality, innovation, and design for a good price.

2.- It´s for everybody from school students to business people because its features such as lightweight are making it very portable.

3.- Perfect for video game lovers because of its display QHD + resolution of 3200 by 1800 pixels and 276 pixels per inch of pixel density. Or even, the newest generation came out with Full HD + 1920 x 1080 resolution display.

    I like your review on the ASUS Zenbook. These laptops look like a great option and the price is also reasonable.

    Not so sure the idea of the missing keys appeal too me though, but I suppose it is something you can get used to after a while. I did have my mind set a MacBook, but maybe I need too look at other options. The MacBook is just so pricey.

      Hi Michel,

      Totally agree with your comment about MacBook Michel and just wait to see the price in the next 2016 MacBook. Although we can be sure it´ll be a good machine, sometimes we do not use all the features offered; So that is when we can make a bad investment in my opinion.

      I am glad after my review you are open to see more options. Good luck good your search.

      Thanks for leave me a comment.

    Great review for a great product. I’m on your side as I’m using an asus laptop right now. I too enjoy the way it works, little lag time when it starts up.

    I actually have two asus laptops in our home, one for me and the other for my kids. I know I can’t see myself buying another product. Great post.
