Slim and light laptops are becoming more affordable, and it's always good to see manufacturers paying attention to what people really want. If, like me, you spend most of your day using a laptop and have to carry it with you wherever you go, it had better not become a burden. Thankfully modern laptops use slim SSDs and CPUs that don't require very heavy cooling, and of course it's safe now to drop optical drives and several legacy ports, all of which help.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX425) Summary

The Asus ZenBook UX425JA is extremely slim and light, with a 14-inch screen in a body the size of most 13-inch laptops. The design is neutral and serves well for productivity on the go. The keyboard has dedicated paging keys plus a good layout, and the trackpad doubles as a touch-sensitive number pad. You get full-sized USB and HDMI ports plus two Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports, but no 3.5mm audio socket which is a controversial omission. The screen is non-reflective and the IR webcam is placed above it. Asus' ErgoLift hinge raises the back of the lower deck for better airflow. 

The ZenBook UX425JA runs relatively quiet. Performance is good, thanks to the 10th Gen Intel 'Ice Lake' CPU and fast PCIe SSD. You can get lots of work done, but don't expect any games or heavy content creation software to run smoothly. Battery life is good but doesn't quite match up to Asus' claims. Overall, this is an expensive but competent ultraportable laptop.

  • Fabulous!

    Well after a lot of reviews and comparison I have decided to go for this laptop, let's start with pro Pro: 1) Face Unlock - This is not just a webcam, it is IR camera, meaning it will only unlock when it detects your face and you can't fool it 2) Audio - I really liked the speaker sound, bass is good. 3) Battery - Battery can easily last for about 7 hrs. 4) Display - As Asus claims this display has 100% sRGB gamut, it looks really good due to very thin bezels. 5) Touchpad 2.0 - Touch pad will also work as your num-pad, you can activate this by simply pressing a button and you can also adjust the brightness Con's: 1) Webcam isn't great, though it is just fine during good lighting conditions, gets blurry when lighting conditions get bad. Overall it is a best laptop in this segment, for your office and personal use, well you can go for it.

  • Terrific

    Asus gets it absolutely spot on!!! I waited 12 months for this and shifted from my old Zenbook UX305FA to this.. Why I love Asus and stick to it? 1) Taiwanese entity. Most of world electronics is built by Taiwan: Foxconn & TSMC are Taiwanese. These people have tremendous craftsmanship. 2) Reliability: My old Zenbook survived 4 years of abuse. I use my machines in a pretty unsympathetic manner. My laptop once fell down one floor and it still worked for a year after it without any functional damage. That's incredible! 3) VFM: No other brand provides you more for your money than Asus does across the entire spectrum of their products. I use their phone, laptop, display etc. What I was looking for: 1)Thin & light: Laptop under 1.2kg since my old Zenbook weighed 1.1kg. 2) Thunderbolt 3 with display & charging since I work on big screens at home and work which support T3. 3) i7 10th gen. 4) 16GB RAM 5) Thermal efficiency: There's no point having all that power if your thermals are not good enough and you can't possibly utilise it because the laptop heats up. That's the problem with similarly spec Acer, MSI and even Dell laptops. The geekbench scores were significantly lower than the Zenbook. 6) Something under a lakh 7) No blingy gold design. I wanted a clean looking laptop in grey. 8) Battery life of 7-8 hours What I love about the UX425 1) Performance: I run 150-200 chrome tabs on 6-7 desktops in parallel along with Powerpoint and Excel sheets. Never shut down the laptop and it works flawlessly. 2) Battery life: I don't take the charging cable with to work. Because I can charge it with a normal T3 charger and because it works a good 8-9 hours with my workload too. 3) Keyboard & trackpad: My biggest issue with the earlier Zenbook was the trackpad and the keyboard. This is a 100 times better trackpad and what an amazing keyboard. 4) Aesthetics: It looks amazing and feels so much more premium than other ultrabooks in the range. What I don't like: 1) Needed one more USB port. I attach an external mouse and keyboard on my workstations and have to carry a USB hub every single time 2) The USB to LAN port supports only 100mbps. It is a major drawback because I'm paying for a 1Gbps connection and can only use 100mbps over a LAN cable!! 3) Could have been thinner 4) Bulky charger: The old gen Zenbook came with a Mobile Type single unit charger instead of a bulky two unit one. 5) Display brightness: I wish they launched the 450-nits display variant in India.. although the 300-nits matte display is good enough, sometimes you wish you could have more in outdoor conditions. 6) Asus recently announced 11-th gen version with Screenpad, under 1kg and MX450 graphics. Although it is priced at 1.25-1.3L, I don't like the fact that a month after buying a brand new laptop, there's another one on the block. Overall, this is too much value for 95k.. there's nothing else that comes close, quite honestly. The XPS is 1.3-1.5L, the Spectre is about 1.5L and the MSI & Acer laptops are not a match in performance. Just go for it!
