*Battery life may vary from different usage scenarios and pattern.


Super-Light, Super-Stylish
The feather-light 985g ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) is the first ever ZenBook to be constructed from magnesium-aluminum alloy, a super-strong and super-light material that is 33% lighter than the standard alloy used in laptops. Moreover, the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) is so tough that it even passed the ultra-demanding MIL-STD 810G military standard for reliability and durability. It also has great heat dissipation properties; it is not only incredibly light without sacrificing strength or rigidity, but also stays super-cool for maximum performance. The ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) comes in Deep Dive Blue colour, which is a majestic deep shade that oozes sophistication and elegance.

All-Day Battery for Non-Stop Lifestyles
Designed for non-stop, on-the-go lifestyles, the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) offers the freedom of an all-day battery* life. A specially designed 50Wh lithium-polymer battery gives it up to 15 hours* of autonomy. Lithium-polymer batteries retain most of their original charge capacity even after hundreds of charge cycles — giving them a lifespan that is up to 3x longer than standard batteries, so you will have less need to worry about deteriorating battery performance.
*Battery life may vary from different usage scenarios and pattern.

Multimedia that Will Amaze You
To give you the biggest screen in the least space, the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) has a beautiful NanoEdge display, with an ultra-thin bezel that gives it an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio. This 13.3-inch display fits in an ultra-compact frame, giving the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) a smaller footprint than many 13-inch models. Its 178° wide-view technology ensures that image quality is not degraded when viewed at extreme angles, so it is great for collaborating or entertaining. With its astonishing full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, a pixel density of 332 pixels per inch and wide 100% sRGB colour gamut, it delivers pin-sharp text, incredibly realistic imagery and ensures vivid accurate colours.

The powerful Harman Kardon-certified audio system in the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) features the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster technology. With its tailored mix of superior hardware — including low-distortion smart-amplifier technology that can boost volume by up to 3.5X — and cleverly designed software, the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) delivers the ultimate audio experience.

Every Connection You Need
The ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) is equipped with the new, reversible USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C (USB-C) port that delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10X faster than older USB 2.0 connections. There are also two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port and a microSD card reader.

The ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) introduces the new and exclusive ASUS Wi-Fi Master technology, which reduces interference to ensure faster and more reliable dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi connections at extreme distances.[1] With a top speed of 867Mbps, it is up to 6X faster than 802.11n[2] for seamless video-streaming, smooth web-surfing and lag-free gaming.

Accessing the ZenBook 13 (UX331UAL) could not be easier or more secure. With its built-in fingerprint sensor in the touchpad and Windows Hello, there is no need to type in your password every time to log in: Just a single touch is all it takes. The sensor makes it easy to log in while on the move, and there is no chance of anyone sneakily spying on your password.
