For the longest time, I’ve been a desktop -using-gal. But that’s been something I’ve been looking to change for awhile now – I just didn’t find the right laptop to make me swoon.
I play a lot of computer games, and enjoy watching movies on a bigger screen, so that’s why I have a 27 inch screen and gaming rig set up. However, I remember what life with a handy laptop used to be like, and I missed it throughout the years after my old laptop died on me! The last laptop I had was incredibly slow, heavy, and rightfully so – that was in 2008, when laptops used to still weigh 3kg and functioned as fast as a tortoise. I’ve always been, and always be, a Windows girl, so I refuse to purchase anything that doesn’t provide me a Windows operating system.
Today, I’m really excited to share about the latest toy I’ve gotten my hands on and fallen in love with. No other laptop in recent history has made me as excited as this one – the all-new, sexy as hell, ASUS Zenbook 3!!!
The Zenbook 3 is ASUS’ newest baby, with much buzz about it circulating around town.
Some of its core features include:
Processor: 7th Generation Intel Core i7 Processor
Operating system: Windows 10 Home
Display: 12.5″ (16:9) LED backlit FHD (1920×1080)
Keyboard: Illuminated Chiclet Keyboard
Weight: 910 g with Battery
Dimensions: 296 x 191.2 x 11.9 mm (WxDxH)
I’ve had the utmost pleasure of owning one of these babies for about a month now, and I’ve taken it everywhere with me! Mainly to work in my cafe, Shiberty Bakes, where you’ll find me munching on a pizza or a macaron or two while doing research for new recipes and replying emails, but I’ve also taken my Zenbook 3 to the salon, my boyfriend’s house, and anywhere, really – why not when it’s less than a kilo in weight!
What I really like about the ASUS Zenbook 3:
✓ Super lightweight at only 910g with battery weight included, means I don’t have to worry about hurting my shoulders carrying it around all-day.
✓ Gorgeous display and graphics, important to me because I need to see accurate colors and details when editing pics for blog posts & discussing cake designs.
✓ Sleek and classy design, this laptop is so chic, it looks more like a fashion accessory than a device to do work on!
✓ Long lasting battery life, to see me through my various meetings of the day without fretting over the battery dying halfway.
✓ Did you know that it also has fingerprint login security feature? Passwords are soon to be a thing of the past!
✓ That deep gorgeous royal blue color that screams sophistication. Most laptops come in colors that I don’t like at all – think red, boring black or even – god no, baby pink.
I’m still blown away by the functionality and design. Look at how thin it is – my ballpoint pen is almost thicker in terms of width!!! How crazy is that!
Some of the daily duties and commitments that need to be fulfilled by a small business owner / cafe owner AKA myself, includes scheduling meetings with suppliers to discuss pricing and stocks, researching for hours on end about the newest food trends I’d like to dabble in, replying messages and emails regarding customized orders, meeting up with cake clients to talk about their wedding cakes and showing them our gallery of designs to choose from.
All of these activities have one thing in common: I need a reliable laptop to do all this work on! I’m glad to have Zenbook 3 to serve me while I go about my busy bee ways.
An average day in my working life – macarons, all-day brunch food, phone, my notebook and trusty Zenbook 3!
It feels so good to no longer be limited to working on a desktop. While I still enjoy using my desktop, I could definitely get used to working mobile and remotely. If I don’t feel like being cooped up at home, I can grab my laptop and head out to any cafe or my own and enjoy a different ambient setting on a day to day basis!
I can see why the ASUS Zenbook 3 has been making waves ever since its release. Head down to your nearest store to have a touch & feel of this beauty, to understand what it means when uncompromising style meets exceptional technology!
The ASUS ZenBook 3 is now available at all ASUS Brand Stores and Authorised Retailers, with prices starting from $1,998. Learn more about the amazing ASUS ZenBook 3 here!
