ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe fixes ZenBook 3’s biggest flaw

We’ve been covering 2-in-1 convertibles and outlandish gaming laptops so often recently, we almost forgot regular notebooks can be good even without crazy features. The new ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe is here to remind us about that.

As a follow up to the sexy ZenBook 3 launched last year at Computex, the Deluxe is a much more refined version; not just because it has newer components, but because it addresses the most annoying flaw of the original ZenBook 3.

You see, the ZenBook 3 followed in the MacBook’s footsteps and had only a single USB Type-C for all its physical connections. That meant choosing between charging or having a flash drive plugged in, or buying a — ugh — dongle. So, as the MacBook Pro added more Type-C ports, so did the ZenBook 3 Deluxe.

With three of them now — two of which support Thunderbolt 3 — the Deluxe behaves a lot more like an actual laptop, and not like a tablet. It also helps that ASUS managed to cram a 14-inch Full HD display into a frame normally fit for just a 13-inch screen, thanks to some crafty engineering and shaved bezels.

Better yet, it still maintains a slim and light body at 12.9mm in thickness and 1.1kg in weight, despite all the added features, such as the four-speaker Harman Kardon setup and Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection.

As for actual performance, it depends on what kind of setup you choose. The best you can get is one with Intel’s latest seventh-generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and a terabyte of SSD storage. A fingerprint scanner and webcam supporting Windows Hello are included in all models.

Color options are quartz gray and royal blue, which can be purchased at a starting price of $1,699 beginning May.
