Asus ZenBook 13 UX331UN

Editor's Choice

The latest ZenBook 13 combines plenty of great features for a pretty package that make it the best Asus laptop. This elegant laptop sports a striking blue hue and its 13.3-inch chassis weighs a mere 2.7 pounds. Its beauty isn't just in its shell, as its Core i5 CPU provides solid perfromance, and its keyboard is surprisingly comfortable when you consider its 0.5-inch thin chassis. Not only is the ZenBook 13's screen quite bright, this ultrabook lasts for more than 9 hours on a single charge.

  • Best Value Notebook

    Asus VivoBook E403NA

    Editor's Choice

    This 14-inch notebook offers two features you don't usually find in a super-affordable laptop: a 1080p screen and an aluminum-clad chassis. Best of all, the VivoBook E403NA weighs just 3.1 pounds and lasts over 8 hours on a charge, which makes it easy to carry with you. The Pentium CPU offers solid performance while a fingerprint reader lets you log into Windows 10 with one touch. Shoppers looking to make a dollar stretch should consider this the best Asus laptop for them.

    Asus Chromebook Flip C434

    Editor's Choice

    The 14.1-inch Chromebook Flip C434 fits its larger display in a chassis that's so much smaller than you'd expect. That's thanks to super-small bezels, which aren't just for high-end laptops and smartphones. It's also got an aluminum design and lasts nearly 10 hours on a single charge.

  • Best Battery Life

    Asus ZenBook 13 UX333FA

    The ZenBook 13 UX333FA is one of the longest lasting laptops around. Lasting nearly 11.5 hours on the Laptop Mag Battery Test, this 13-inch laptop isn't just a looker in Royal Blue, it's reliable too. It's also got a ton of ports, including both USB Type-C and USB Type-A, so you don't need to be stuck carrying a dongle everywhere you go.

  • Best 14-inch Laptop

    Asus ZenBook 14 UX433

    The 2.6-pound ZenBook 14 UX433 shows that Asus is looking to help budget and lighten your bags. Starting at $999, the UX433 fits a 14-inch screen in the chassis we expect for a 13-inch notebook, and tosses in a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, a competitive package for the price. Wetested the $1,198 config, which offers an equally great bang for your buck, with a Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. The ZenBook's also got an ingenious touch: an LED-illuminated touchpad, which allows you to get a full num-pad in a mid-sized laptop, a complete rarity.
