Asus ZenBook 15 UX534 review: Smaller, not better

[2019.11.08, Fri 14:05] Nearly every member of its premium ZenBook line is focused on packing as much computer into as small a frame as possible, and the ZenBook 15 UX534 that I reviewed is no exception. Is the ZenBook 15 so much smaller than the XPS 15, or other similar laptops, that it's size is a significant benefit? It depends on which dimension you're looking at. The ZenBook 15 performed well for a thin and light laptop, but it's not as quick as the XPS 15. In our actual gaming benchmarks, the ZenBook 15 again performed well for a thin and light laptop but not as quick as the XPS 15. Clearly, the ZenBook 15 isn't terribly efficient under load. And in the video test, the ZenBook 15 lasted for just under 11 hours, which is average for premium laptops today. The ZenBook 15 UX534 excels at its most obvious objective: Packing a lot of laptop into a smaller chassis than seems natural. Finally, the HP Spectre x360 15 is in the same pricing ballpark as the ZenBook 15 and it offers a 4K display, better battery life, and superior 45-watt performance - albeit in a larger and heavier convertible 2-in-1 chassis.
