It’s thin, but it has all the pots! Asus’ new Zenbook 13, 14 released
ASUS launched a trio of new laptops that appear to be the “thinest with complete I / O ports in the world” — ZenBook 13 (UX325), ZenBook 14 (UX425 / UM425), and ZenBook Flip 13 (UX363). The devices that have popped up over the past week at retailers are meant to be ultra portable without sacrificing I / O capabilities.
The ZenBook 13 (UX325) and ZenBook 14 (UX425) are both 13.9 mm thick, but they also offer full-size Type-A USB ports, a 3-USB-C Thunderbolt and a microSD card reader. These apps make them the 13.3 and 14-inch “world’s thinnest” laptops with this set of networking options. The Zenbooks are light, as well as being slim. The 13 (UX325) weights 2.3 lbs or 1.07 kg while the Zenbook 14 weights 2.5 lbs or 1.13 kg.
Perhaps the most notable feature is AMD Ryzen 7 4700U 8-core mobile processor from ZenBook 14 (UM425). That chip is also included in the ASUS Zephyrus G14, which we scored 90. On the other hand, the ZenBook 13 and 14 (UX425) use Core i3, i5 or i7 processors of the 10th-generation Intel and the two version are equipped to handle up to 32 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of storage. The 14 (UM 425) is capable of taking up to 16 GB RAM and 2 TB of storage. All three devices feature 1080p screen resolution as well as — pretty standard. However, a face-logging IR cameras which supports Windows Hello is noteworthy for all devices.
The ZenBook Flip 13 (UX 363) is designed with a 360-degree hinge that allows you to rotate the screen to transform the device between modes of laptop , tablet, stand or tent. This is also small and slim, weighing 2.8 lbs, or 1.3 kilograms, and 13.9 inches. ASUS claims its battery will last up to 16 hours and can charge in as little as 49 minutes when it reaches 60 per cent. If you’re interested in the latest ASUS, though, you might need to be patient, as they just don’t seem to be widely available yet.
