Love at First Sight with the NEW ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425EA (11th Gen Intel)

Wednesday, October 06, 2021

     My first blogging laptop is ASUS K555L, an entry laptop model that was launched six years ago. I have no regrets about choosing this brand because I've tried and tested its performance and durability for a long time already. Fast forward today, ASUS has launched new laptop models from its ZenBook series. When I first saw this laptop, I said to myself that it's time to upgrade to a more portable one. Don't get me wrong, I still love my ASUS laptop. It's still working fine and can do a lot of things up to this day. I never had problems when it comes to performance or hardware issues. But it's also nice to do an upgrade, especially if buying a new laptop will help me stay motivated and keep my productivity high as I work easy using this baby that's boasting timeless beauty and effortless portability.

     In a world full of uncertainty, there's one thing that's certain when it comes to technology and all things laptop. Say hello to the World's thinnest 14" laptop with QHD Display powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics- The all-new ZenBook 14 (UX425EA) – a 14-inch ultraportable laptop now packed with more power and speed, advancing productivity and creativity wherever, whenever. It's love at first sight! ZenBook 14 is so light, compact, and pretty on the outside but it's powerful and incredible on the inside. Read more about my favorite features of this beauty after the jump!

1. The Design and Color

     The ASUS ZenBook 14 is indeed the world's thinnest and lightest laptop. Look at the elegant all-metal chassis that's compact as it's just around 13.9 mm thin making it sleek and portable. If you're like me who likes working in different parts of the house or on the go, the ZenBook 14 is the perfect device as it only weighs approximately 1.17 kg. It's true that users can be productive, whether in a cafĂ© or the beachside.

ASUS ZenBook 14 in Pine Mist   

     Available in simple yet classic colors that exude class and luxury- Pine Grey. If you're the type who likes basic colors yet screams elegance, go get the Pine Grey. It has a glossy finish that is calm and peaceful. It projects professional wisdom and features a special off-center version of the iconic ZenBook spun-metal finish. 

2. The QHD Display

     Aside from using this laptop for work, it's a perfect partner for leisure and entertainment. If you're like me who loves to watch workout videos or daily vlogs on YouTube, the all-new ASUS ZenBook 14 has a bright and clear four-sided NanoEdge display, with slim bezels that create a 90% screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience. It now comes in an incredible 2.8K resolution QHD Display – making still and moving images brighter and more alive. Be amazed at smooth pictures and video quality of up to 300 nits of brightness maximizing 15 hours of battery life.

3. The Specs and Battery Life

     Who doesn't love a small yet powerful device? It's amazing that ASUS powered this baby with the latest 11th Generation Intel Core processors. This allows users to multitask efficiently. What more can you ask for if it's also powered with Intel Iris Xe graphics and 16 GB RAM, supplemented by 512GB PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSD and the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax)? If you are always on the go, remote working is also made more efficient because of the battery life that can last up to 15 hours on a single charge. I was surprised that it also has a fast charge feature that lets users juice up to 60% in under 49 minutes, hooray for beating those deadlines on time!

3. Audio

     I love listening to house music that's why giving it a certified audio quality sounds pleasing to my ears. The clean, clear, and crisp sound always makes me groove to dance music! The audio system of ZenBook 14 is certified by audio specialists Harman Kardon to ensure immersive, crystal-clear sound for communications or entertainment. It's always a "RIP replay button moment" every time I listen to my favorite songs in my playlist. Does that sound pleasing to your ears!?

4. The NumberPad 2.0 and Keyboard

     Because of the nature of my work, I also look for comfort especially when it comes to typing. I'm already used to my old ASUS keyboard and have no complaints or whatsoever but typing on the ZenBook 14 is more satisfying and comfortable because of its edge-to-edge ergonomic keyboard design-precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to the optimum typing angle when the lid is opened. This also provides an extra cooling airflow under the laptop. It's my first time to try this innovative ASUS NumberPad 2.0, a dual-function touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated numeric keypad. Even when NumberPad is activated, the touchpad can be used for cursor control thanks to its intelligent software.

5. Ports, Charger, and Connectors

     ZenBook 14 redefines what’s possible in an ultrathin laptop to give you a full complement of I/O ports, including full-size HDMI and USB Type-A ports. The power of Thunderbolt™ 4 is also at your disposal, with two Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C® ports that support fast charging, 4K UHD external displays, and up to 40Gbps data transfers. For easy transfers of data from your mobile devices, there’s also a microSD card reader.

6. Pre-Installed Microsoft Home and Student 2019

     This one is a really big bonus when you buy this laptop. The all-new ASUS ZenBook 14 has a pre-installed Microsoft Home and Student 2019 software that's useful for school or work. No need to worry about additional costs. This is a free lifetime license for basic MS Office Apps like MS Word for writing drafts, Excel for data analysis or documentation of reports, and Powerpoint for presentations.
