ASUS UX331FAL-BH71 Overview

  • 1Description

The 13.3" ZenBook 13 UX331FAL Laptop from Asus is a thin and lightweight system designed to keep up with you throughout the day while you're on-the-go. Specs-wise, it's built with a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and a 256GB M.2 SSD. Its 13.3" display, driven by integrated Intel UHD graphics, features a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and has wide 178° viewing angles with ultra-slim NanoEdge bezels. Other integrated features include USB Type-A and Type-C ports, an HDMI port, a microSDXC card reader, a webcam, microphones, speakers, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 (64-Bit).

Thin & Light
Constructed from magnesium-aluminum alloy that's both durable and lightweight, the ZenBook 13 measures just 0.5" thin and weighs in at roughly two pounds, which makes it an easy system to take with you on-the-go.
The 13.3" display is built with NanoEdge bezels for an 80% screen-to-body ratio that provides you with a more immersive viewing experience. Moreover, it has wide 178° viewing angles and 100% sRGB coverage.
All-Day Battery
With a 50Wh li-polymer battery, the ZenBook 13 can last up to 15 hours to keep up with you throughout your day. Please note that actual battery life will depend on use.
The keyboard on the ZenBook 13 is designed for a comfortable typing experience, thanks to its 1.4mm key travel distance and built-in backlighting. Its touchpad also provides precise and accurate tracking with palm-rejection technology and multi-finger gesture support.
Fingerprint Sensor
Thanks to the built-in fingerprint sensor on the ZenBook 13, you can easily log into your system with just a touch, even if you forgot your password.
The ZenBook 13 features a Harman Kardon-certified audio system with Asus SonicMaster technology. Its speakers offer low-distortion smart-amplifier technology for increased volume and clarity.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    ASUS UX331FAL-BH71 Reviews

    13.3" ZenBook 13 UX331FAL Laptop is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good 3 Color: Many people may be unsure about the color description: Deep Dive Blue! It looks like dark blue but 99% close to black! If you tilt the laptop under direct light, you will see it is actually blue! Performance: i7 + SSD = Fast! Because it is a U i7, some programs take longer to install. Build: Lightweight! ASUS describes it to be constructed from magnesium-aluminum alloy! This UX331 model doesnt show the rings from machining like the others, for example, the UX331UA or UX331UN! It is not shiny and reflective; it is a flat color! Bottom Line: A newer i7 + Lower Price = Good Deal (UX331UA-DS71 still costs over $850 on Amazon)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and performance, but ... This laptop was the sweet spot for me in terms of price, performance and size. I considered the newer UX333, but I think that one is too small. The SSD is a Micron 1100 SATA.  The only issue I found so far is the touchpad, which seems to skip occasionally.  Apparently this is a know issue on these laptops. Not too bad, but, coming from a Mac, it feels very unpolished and annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Laptop I love this one. After returning two laptops from Lenovo, ASUS was the brand to go for me. It is sturdy, got a great dark blue colour finish, matte screen which is better for the eyes, and long battery life. My battery lasts for around 8-9 hours if not used heavily. B&H delivered it quickly, in 2 business days. I have not found a single issue so far in this laptop. Great product fot the price value.
    Date published: 2019-01-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, almost black laptop I purchased this because of the black color depicted in the product images (B&H product description didnt mention color and there were no official reviews yet).  When it arrived, the packaging showed an image of a bright blue laptop and the info on the label said it was a Deep Dive Blue color.  Therefore, I was ready to return the unopened package the next day. Luckily, I did a search for ASUS laptops with this color name and found a review for a different model where the reviewer mentioned the computer was much, much closer to a black color than blue.  I unsealed my laptop package, and that description is absolutely true.  I can just barely discern a blue hue to the dark color... it was definitely almost black.     Once Windows 10 was finished setting up, the laptop was exceedingly fast.  Boot up time from full shutdown was snappy.   However, similar to other complaints on similar ASUS laptops, my only issue was the location of the power button.  I accidently pressed it thinking it was the location of the del key.  A solution is to just disable the power button function in the settings.  As a result, the power button will still work to turn on the laptop but will not be functional once windows boots up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice Bought it for a friend, and I am recommending another friend to get it. This one is a solid workstation for a light workload and students who are just looking to do text, document editing.  You can also do Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and some photo editing on this laptop. Small footprint and a fairly reasonable price. Good choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Advanced convenience Lightweight, easy to use, first totally WiFi experience; quickly gotten spoiled as can use anywhere in home rooms away from the router.  Bought as a travel and back-up computer; a great value for the price!  First computer purchase in over 3 years---am noting a sort evolution in computing technology from mere computing to AI!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent travel laptop Needed lightweight laptop for travel purposes including email, word processing, spreadsheets, internet access and photo processing for posting on internet. Very pleased with purchase after first long weekend trip. Easy to connect with hotel Wi-Fi and Ethernet. Very good battery life.
