These two ultraportable laptops are equipped with discrete GPU and deliver high performance.

ASUS has just unveiled its slimmest laptops to date, ZenBook UX430 and ZenBookUX530. These two ultraportable laptops are equipped with discrete GPU and deliver high performance.
UX430 model features 14-inch display and comes in two versions: UX430UA and UX430UQ. At 0.62 inches thickness and 2.75 pounds weight, it is thinner and lighter than MacBook Air. By reducing the bezel to an ultra-narrow 7.18mm ASUS was able to fit a stunning 14-inch full HD display into a svelte 13-inch chassis. Its display has a matte anti-glare coating that reduces annoying reflections to deliver comfortable viewing. The laptop has an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio that minimizes size while maximizes productivity.
