ASUS Outs All-New ZenBook 14 (UX425EA)

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Looks like ASUS is at it again as they release a new ZenBook 14 UX42EA which is a 14 inch ultraportable laptop which is good for everyday office requirements, school packed with power, speed and better fit for productive sessions, something that does the job. I own one (a latter model) and just as I needed something that would also do video editing and tons of word processing, it's been my companion for all the things you see on my blog, social networks and even my YouTube channel.

The new one is better, it's got 2.8K resolution with its QHD display. Videos and photos stay livelier, brighter, and delivers smooth picture and video quality yet not power hungry like other machines of its kind. Your movies, YouTube or Netflix videos would be sick as it's got 90% screen to body ratio, you can chill while writing away on a separate space on your screen (which I do often).

It's got more power because of the Intel Iris Xe graphics card and 16GB RAM, with 512GB PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSD so you've tons of space for your videos and photos. It's also equipped with WiFi 6 so no issues if you're going to get higher wifi rates later on. What's also new is their ASUS USB-C Easy Charge feature so you can be at peace when you are out for work or in a coffee shop (if government permits lol). Still has full i/o capabilities and two Thunderbolt USB-C ports, a microDS Card reader on the side so you don't have to run cables for your cameras or storage devices. Those file transfers would be easy especially for those who usually copy huge video files like you :P

Best of all, it's designed well, very classy and would impress anyone who would see it. The ASUS NumberPad 2.0 also can make you forget you're working on a laptop as you can see numbers on the center, computing would be absolutely fun. It's very thin at 13.9mm, weighs 1.17kg and is on a metal chasis, you'll impress your seat mates and be comfortable too with the ASUS patented ErgoLift. It costs Php 64,995 and comes with ZenBook Sleeves and preinstalled Windows and Office 2019 so you don't have to bother and look for em and work right from the day you purchase it. It's my personal companion during those hard days when I need to do a lot of things, and it's amazing I could even play Valorant in it casually. Timeless, beautiful, and very portable. I love it!
