One of the reasons why the Dell XPS 13 is one of the most desired by users ultraportable, especially now that has gone to Kaby Lake processors, is its screen: the American company has integrated in a frame 11-inch (28 cm ), a very high resolution display 13.3-inch working on the edges – as you may already know – are just a few millimeters thick. The result is striking: the notebook and weighs little cluttered, but offers users the “visual comfort” of a diagonal pattern. It is no small thing, especially for people who spend time on the computer.
Probably, then, ASUS will be inspired to Dell in the design of its new Zenbook UX410. The ultrabook is not yet for sale, but the company has already published on the official website of the SKU product pages will: Zenbook UX410UA with integrated graphics and Intel Zenbook UX410UQ with the latest Nvidia GPU.

Sifting through the technical specifications and images of the two models, we find that the ASUS Zenbook UX410 is virtually identical (in and out) all’Asus Zenbook UX310 except for small differences due to the integration of a different display. In particular, the new Zenbook UX410 will be equipped with Intel Core i7-7500U, Intel Core i5-7200U and Core i3-7100U processors Intel (Kaby Lake) with 4-8GB of RAM DDR4 2133MHz memory onboard expandable up to 16GB and various solutions storage providing 500GB / 1TB of HDD SATA 5400RPM and 128GB / 256GB / 512GB SATA3 SSD M.2.
The screen for both SKU will be a 14-inch matte Full HD panel (1920 x 1080 pixels), but what will change will be the graphics: the ASUS Zenbook UX410UA has only the Intel graphics subsystem (520) while the version ASUS Zenbook UX410UQ sports a GPU Nvidia GeForce 940MX. The 3-cell battery (48Wh) so it should ensure less autonomy in this configuration. The rest of the specifications are identical with two USB 2.0, one USB 3.0 and one USB Type-C, HDMI, WiFi 802.11ac and combo audio jack.
But what is surprising is its size: ASUS Zenbook UX410 has a virtually identical chassis to the Zenbook UX310, just a little ‘thicker and heavier. Measuring 323 x 223 x 18.95 cm (compared to 18:35 dell’UX310 cm) and weighs 1.6Kg (against Kg 1:45). So, for a few millimeters and grams, it will be like you are holding a 13-inch notebook.
