ASUS has announced the new ZenBook 14 (UX425EA), an ultra-portable laptop packed with more power and speed for productivity and creativity.
Known for its stunning design and portability, the all-new ZenBook now comes in a 2.8K resolution QHD display. That’s 1.7 times more pixels than the FHD panels. The laptop delivers smooth picture and video quality of up to 300 nits of brightness. And the display is made more power-efficient so the battery is not compromised. Users can also multitask efficiently as the bigger screen allows multiple windows to be viewed all at the same time.
More Powerful, Same Portability
Powered by the latest 11th Gen Intel Core processors, the device allows users to multitask efficiently. Under the hood, it also has Intel Iris Xe graphics and 16GB of RAM, as well as 512GB PCIe 3.0 x3 NVME SSD and the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax).
Thanks to its battery, it can last up to 15 hours on a single charge. This makes it more efficient when working remotely. It also has fast charge feature that lets it charge up to 60% in under 49 minutes. Moreover, the device supports the new ASUS USB-C Easy Charge feature. This allows them to be conveniently charged from a wide range of standard USB-C chargers. It will also benefit ultrafast charging with any USB-C Power Delivery-certified charger or powerbank.
Full I/O Setup
Without compromising its portability, the ZenBook 14 is packed with full I/O capabilities. This includes full-sized HDMI and USB-A ports, 2 high-speed Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, and a microSD card reader. The 2 Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports support fast charging, up to 4K UHD external displays, and up to 40 Gbps data speeds.
Design Done Right
Weighing at approximately 1.17 kg, its portability enables users to work wherever and whenever. Whether in a café or even the beachside. The device also has a compact and elegant all-metal chassis with a mere 13.9mm thickness.
Its edge-to-edge ergonomic keyboard design makes for a more satisfying and comfortable typing. The precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to an optimum typing angle when it is opened. It also provides an extra cooling airflow under the laptop. The ZenBook also features the ASUS NumberPad 2.0. It’s a dual-function touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated full-size numeric keypad. To turn the NumberPad on and off, simply tap the icon on the touchpad.
An integrated infrared (IR) camera can be located on the top bezel to make a password-free face login with Windows Hello. It also works in dim lighting conditions for easier and quicker access in any environment. Lastly, the device also features an ASUS ClearVoice Mic with AI-trained noise-cancelling technology. It ensures clear voice outgoing communications in online meetings or voice calls. And it also uses ASUS ClearVoice Speaker technology to filter out ambient noise from incoming audio streams.
