ASUS ZenBook UX430UQ
ZenBook has always been a different kind of ultraportable laptop, but the elegant and sophisticated ZenBook UX430 is a new kind of different: we’ve crafted a travel-friendly 13-inch ZenBook with a work-friendly 14-inch display! For the first time ever, you don’t have to make the difficult choice between portability and screen size — the incredible ZenBook UX430 achieves the impossible by delivering both! Its slim and lightweight design, iconic ZenBook styling, and high-performance components make ZenBook UX430 the take-anywhere powerhouse you won’t want to leave behind, wherever you go. Take more with you, in less space!
Lighten your load
ZenBook UX430 is designed to go wherever your busy lifestyle takes you — whether it’s a hectic round of meetings, a crammed international schedule, or a well-deserved vacation. Its sleek and compact 13-inch chassis is a briefcase-friendly 15.9mm thick, and its advanced lightweight construction keeps the weight down to just 1.25 kg — so it’ll never be a burden when you’re on the go.
See more, do more!
When it comes to getting things done, everyone agrees that a bigger display is a better display, because it makes multitasking easier and entertainment more immersive. That’s why we’ve broken all the rules to give ZenBook UX430 the biggest screen possible: The stunning 14-inch Full HD NanoEdge display has an ultra-narrow 7.18mm bezel that allows it to fit into a svelte 13-inch chassis. To maximize your viewing comfort, the NanoEdge display also has a matte anti-glare coating that reduces annoying reflections. The result is a laptop with an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio* that minimizes size while helping you maximize productivity — so you can see and do more, while carrying less!
The ZenBook series is renowned for superb display quality, and ZenBook UX430 is no exception. Its 14-inch anti-glare display has an ultra-wide 100% sRGB color gamut, which means it can display more-accurate and more-vivid colors than a standard display. It also uses wide-view technology to ensure that contrast and color reproduction are not degraded at viewing angles up to 178° degrees, making it perfect for collaboration and screen sharing.
Timeless elegance — with a modern twist
Elegance, sophistication and style are the hallmarks of the ZenBook series. The exquisite ZenBook UX430 continues that tradition, combining precision craftsmanship and premium materials to give you a laptop that stands out from the crowd. ZenBook UX430 is available in four gorgeous colors to match your style — Royal Blue, Rose Gold, Quartz Gray and Shimmer Gold — and the aluminum-alloy lid features the iconic ASUS spun-metal finish. The Zen-inspired, concentric-circle design is enhanced with a stunning crystal-like coating that’s created using an advanced technique known as nano-imprinting lithography. This exclusive high-tech glossy coating adds an extra touch of luxury to your ZenBook UX430.

Every connection you need
ZenBook UX430 is equipped with the new, reversible USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) port that offers an any-way-up design to make connecting devices as easy as possible. It also delivers data transfer speeds that are up to 10x faster than older USB 2.0 connections!

Mobility without bounds
ZenBook UX430 lets you get connected faster and further with the latest dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. At speeds of 867 Mbps, 802.11ac Wi-Fi is up to 6x faster than 802.11n! Bluetooth® 4.1 lets you connect your favorite devices with less impact on battery life. ZenBook UX430 gives you the freedom to do whatever you need to do, wherever you want to do it!
ZenBook UX430 is equipped with a full-size backlit keyboard that features a sturdy single-piece design to deliver a superb typing experience. It's a masterpiece of ergonomics, with 1.4mm key travel that’s optimized for a comfortable feel. The precision touchpad is cleverly engineered for maximum comfort and accuracy, with a glass covering for smooth control. The touchpad features palm-rejection technology, and it supports multi-finger gestures and handwriting.
One-touch access with Windows Hello
Accessing your ZenBook UX430 couldn’t be easier or more secure. Thanks to a built-in fingerprint sensor in the touchpad and Windows Hello, there’s no need to type in your password every time to log in. Just a single touch is all it takes!
The best Windows 10 experience
ZenBook UX430 sets the standard for the greatest Windows 10 experience, and features an array microphone that supports Cortana, the personal digital assistant that helps you get things done easily. The array microphone makes voice control more accurate, even in noisy conditions. Cortana can help keep track of your interests, favorite places, and anything you want to keep up to date with — to provide truly personalized service.
Sound that will amaze you
To create the next generation of ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, the ASUS Golden Ear team worked with renowned home and automotive audio experts Harmon Kardon. The results are astonishing. A tailored mix of superior hardware — including smart amplifier technology that delivers louder sound with no distortion — and cleverly designed software ensure that ZenBook UX430 gives you the ultimate audio experience.
Superbly optimized color
ASUS Splendid technology enhances the 14-inch display on ZenBook UX430, giving it richer and deeper colors for a stunning visual experience. By default, ASUS Splendid is configured to show the most accurate colors possible for the best viewing experience — but for those times that you want to customize your view, ASUS Splendid offers additional options, including Eye Care, Vivid, Manual or Normal modes. Eye Care mode is a special mode that reduces the amount of harmful blue light emitted from the screen by up to 30%, protecting your eyes and reducing the chance of tired eyes when viewing in low-light environments.
