Singapore, June 12, 2020 — ASUS today announces the ZenBook 14 (UX425), an all-new generation 14-inch ultraportable laptop in the ZenBook Classic series. The ZenBook 14 (UX425) is even thinner and lighter than the previous generation. It weighs just 1.17 kg and is a mere 13.9 mm thin, but uniquely for such an ultrathin design it offers comprehensive I/O capabilities, including full-size HDMI and USB Type-A ports in addition to Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C® and a microSD card reader. It is the world’s thinnest 14-inch laptop to offers such comprehensive and versatile connectivity.
Compact four-sided NanoEdge display offers a 90% screen-to-body ratio for immersive visuals. The user experience is also fully updated, featuring ASUS NumberPad 2.0, up to 22 hours battery life[i], a new edge-to-edge keyboard design, ErgoLift hinge mechanisms, and IR cameras for fast face-recognition. The ZenBook 14 (UX425) is available in a sophisticated new Pine Grey colour.
Powered by the latest 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors with 8GB RAM, the ZenBook 14 (UX425) makes light work of multitasking, productivity and entertainment. Up to 1TB PCIe® x4 SSDs and the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax) round off the specification for superb all-round performance.
Timeless Beauty, Effortless Portability
The ZenBook 14 (UX425) is designed for effortless portability, with a compact and elegant all-metal chassis that’s a mere 13.9 mm thin. The ZenBook 14 (UX425) is also incredibly power efficient, with up to an amazing 22-hour of battery life on a single charge, meaning that the charger can be left at home for many trips to minimise weight and bulk. It is a perfect match for today’s on-the-go lifestyles.
The stylish new design of the ZenBook 14 (UX425) is enhanced by timeless new colour. Pine Grey is a glossy shade that is calm and peaceful. It projects professional wisdom, and features a special off-center version of the iconic ZenBook spun-metal finish.
Unrivaled I/O Ports
The ZenBook 14 (UX425) redefines what’s possible in an ultrathin laptop: it is the world’s thinnest laptop to offer uncompromised I/O capabilities. The laptop is just 13.9 mm thin, but uniquely for its size still include full-size HDMI and USB Type-A ports, two high-speed Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, and a microSD card reader for easy mobile data transfer: No other current 14-inch laptop offers all these I/O ports in such a thin design.
The two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports — with their convenient any-way-up connectors — support fast charging, up to two 4K UHD external displays for an expanded visual workspace, and up to 40 Gbps data speeds for ultrafast file transfers.
The ZenBook 14 (UX425) also supports the new ASUS USB-C Easy Charge feature, which allows them to be conveniently charged from a wide range of standard USB-C chargers. USB-C Easy Charge allows users can enjoy ultrafast charging with any USB-C Power Delivery-certified charger, such as the bundled 65-watt charger, or charge at slower rates when wall sockets are unavailable using airline chargers, portable chargers or power banks. USB-C Easy Charge takes the frustration out of long journeys or travel in locations with limited mains power.
The ZenBook 14 (UX425 has bright and clear four-sided NanoEdge display, with slim bezels that create a 90% screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience. The new edge-to-edge ergonomic keyboard design increases the size of the keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience. It also creates space for an extra set of useful function keys at the right-hand side of the keyboard. For maximum typing comfort, the precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to the optimum typing angle when the lid is opened. This action also creates space under the laptop for extra cooling airflow.
For easy data entry, there’s the productivity-enhancing ASUS NumberPad 2.0. This is a dual-function touchpad with an integrated LED-illuminated full-size numeric keypad: simply tapping the icon on the touchpad turns NumberPad on and off.
An integrated infrared (IR) camera located on the top bezel makes password-free face login fast and easy with Windows Hello. It also works in dim lighting conditions, so accessing the ZenBook 14 (UX425 is easier and faster than ever in any environment.
The ZenBook 14 (UX425) harness the power of the latest 10th Generation Intel Core processors — all the way up to the Core i7 series. These processors deliver faster, smoother and more responsive performance than the previous generation, and they’re teamed with 8 GB of high-speed RAM to help users blitz through daily tasks.
The laptops also have some of the fastest solid-state storage available, with up to 1 TB PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD that ensure fast boot times and near-instant app loading. With the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax) users can enjoy wireless speeds which is up to 3X faster than WiFi 5, with 4X more network capacity and up to 75% lower latency. Whether working, creating, or simply enjoying entertainment, the new ZenBook 14 (UX425) makes everything effortless.
