Asus always plays for the gallery. They always serve the looks along with works. The company’s Zenbook range has been in the market for a while and has been a favorite among the laptop users. Asus always strive to be the best at what they do; be it their software, their mobiles and even their laptops. The hard work always provides them enough to reap those benefits.
The new Zenbook 14 is all about looks. The previous ranges- Zenbook S and Zenbrook Pro are generally some of the finest laptops. With the Zenbook 14, Asus merges the cool factors of the Zenbook S and Zenbook Pro and give us the best result. Zenbook 14 integrates the features of the S and Pro with Asus strictly playing with the new ErgoLift design. The previous Zenbook S also possessed the same design. This feature enables the Zenbook 14 to have a spacious set and a cool look, helping the device have a raised typing angle.
The screen to body percentile is a beautiful 92% which happened as a result of using super-narrow bezels with the help of the four sided frameless NanoEdge display. The stunning display of 1920×1080 offers a delightful screen that comes with an anti glare. The new generation Zenbook has got a 14in with a 6.5mm screen. The highlight of using this is that it made the device much more compact. This makes the Zenbook 14 much like a handy device, and not as some sort of a big device.
This is the kind of notebook that you would need while you are traveling, or carrying it in a backpack. The seemingly weightless laptop is thus lightweight and easy to use and carry. You could carry it in a backpack and you wouldn’t even notice its presence. It only weighs just 1.45kg.
There is a fingerprint scanner right on top of the touch pad. Next to that touch pad, Asus has placed its stereo speakers. Seems too much there, but not that much of an issue there of using up the additional space. The uber cool Zenbook 14 carries the usual adornments like USB Type-C 3.1, USB 2.0/ type A, an HDMI and microSD port.
The keyboard buttons feels superior owing to its heightened position. Lighted keyboards, one of the random features that we find nowadays, are present here. The backlit keyboard helps the night-time binge watchers and students finishing their assignments at the late hour.
The Zenbook 14 uses Intel 8th gen Core U-series processors and is fan-cooled. The company promises that the new Zenbook provides 14 hours of battery life, thanks to that mighty Intel processor. The Zenbook 14 lives up to the expectations and is a worthy successor of the previous generation of Zenbooks. The price may deter some as they cost around Rs 53000($749). But the services that they were able to cram into the 14in device seem like a worthy purchase. The stunning display and overall look and design of the laptop should make Asus proud and happy (in the long run). Asus seems like they take their competition seriously and the Zenbook 14 is a serious contender against some of the top laptops at this range and size.
