Our Laptop Suggestion
I’ve looked at your request and currently, I would suggest three laptops that have a nice, premium, durable and classy design. All are portable, durable and have a great screen and loud sound system (for a laptop, of course).
The first one I would suggest is the Asus ZenBook UX303UB. It’s at the top of your budget but definitively has everything you need: an ultra-HD 13-inch screen with a mid-range discrete video card, a powerful i7 processor and 12 GB of RAM. It’s really one of my favorite laptop at the moment and will answer all your needs.
If you don’t need a discrete video card – for gaming, high-res movie editing or any 3D – then these more affordable laptops will do the trick:
A smaller option with its 12-inch HD+ screen is the ultra-thin and trendy Asus ZenBook UX390UA. If you’re looking for quality and portability, go for this one. It has a great HD screen, weighs less than 2 pounds and is a thin as you can get.
I hope this helps, write back if you have any questions!
