Asus ZenBook 3 Vs HP Spectre x360 Vs Apple MacBook 2016 – Who’ll Win The Race For Fastest, Thinnest And Coolest Laptopby Sayli Jadhav November 25, 2016
With a lot of online shopping stores, shopping for clothing got easy, but something else just became difficult. Haven’t guessed it yet? Well, buying laptops is what we’re talking about. With so many different brands and each of them in a race to make the fastest, thinnest and the absolute best laptop, the electronic market is going crazy. Gone are the days when you’d blindly pick apple while mentioning the best ones. Some of these Windows-powered laptops are giving Apple a run for its money.
Asus launched its ZenBook 3, packed with an aluminium chassis with a slim body that you’ll love. This ultra-thin 11.9 mm laptop comes with the world’s smallest 3mm hinges that hold this beauty together. And if that didn’t sound pretty enough to you, its metal unibody comes with classy golden highlights and a matching backlit keyboard. Everything about this spells S-T-Y-L-I-S-H. Available in Rose Gold, Royal Blue and Quartz Grey, the Asus ZenBook 3 will win your heart.
Weighing under 1 Kg and with a 0.4mm corning gorilla glass, it has a 12.5-inch FHD display and a 1780 viewing angle. The ZenBook 3 comes packed with a Core i7 processor and up to 16 GB of RAM and a 1TB PCle Gen 3 SSD memory. And to keep this super-hot looking device cool there is a 3mm thermal system that has a 0.3 mm liquid crystal polymer. It takes the word ‘thin’ to an all new level.
How About Some Tough Competition?
Competing with that is the HP Spectre x360. This one is like a baby with all the perfect genes. Similar to the Asus, the HP Spectre x360 comes with an aluminium chassis with matte finished top and shiny curves around the edges. The x360 stands true to its name, and it folds around like an Olympic gymnast. It has its power button on the left side and the windows button on the right.
The screen is a 13.3-inch 1080p touch display, and you can opt for the QHD screen if you’d want to spend some more. It’s the only device in the range that allows you the flexibility to shift from a notebook to a tablet to a multi-media marvel. The 7th generation Intel Core Processors and 16 GB of RAM make for a faster PCle storage.
Trying to keep up with in this race, Apple launched its MacBook Pro-2016. It’s obviously thinner and much faster than the previous ones. Available in silver and grey the Macbook Pro comes with a unibody design and has reduced in size. With dimensions measuring 15.5 x 349.3 x 240.7 mm the MacBook is still bigger than the Asus. It is also available in a 13-inch variant. The new MacBook comes with a few changes on the inside too. Apple replaces its standard ports with Thunderbolt 3 ports and a new OLED touch bar in place on the Fn keys. It is packed with a 2.6 GHz Core i7 and a 256 GB SSD storage and a 16 GB RAM. The display has a 2880 x 1800 Pixel resolution.
We told you, making a choice would be difficult. So we’re going to leave that herculean task up to you!
