Asus released two laptops from the latest ZenBook Classic series, namely ZenBook 13 UX 325 and ZenBook 14 UX425 which have super thin and light bodies.
“Since its introduction in 2011, the ZenBook is an iconic laptop and has become a reference for various premium laptops to date. The combination of technological innovation with premium designs is one of the keys that keeps the ZenBook alive today,” said Jimmy Lin, Regional Director of ASUS. Southeast Asia.
“ZenBook 13 (UX325) and ZenBook 14 (UX425) continue the tradition of their predecessors. Both not only appear compact and lightweight, but also prioritize functionality and performance. User experience is what comes first in the two new ZenBooks,” he continued.
Asus ZenBook 13 (UX325) and ZenBook 14 (UX425) are claimed to be laptops with complete ports that have the thinnest bodies in the world. These two laptops are also the first ZenBook variants in Indonesia that carry the 10th Gen Intel Core ‘Ice Lake’ processor complete with Intel Iris Plus Graphics GPU.
Other features included include ErgoLift, NanoEdge Display, NumberPad 2.0, as well as new features such as the Edge-to-Edge Keyboard. The bodies of these two laptops are made of aluminum with a diamond cut design.
The body texture also carries the ZenBook’s signature, namely the circular grooves on the top casing. Its body is 13.9 mm thick and weighs only 1.11 kg (ZenBook 13) and 1.17 kg (ZenBook 140) making it very portable.
At the top of the laptop screen is a 3D IR camera that supports Windows Hello to log into Windows with facial recognition, although unfortunately this laptop is not equipped with a fingerprint sensor for the same purpose.
Its thin and light body has also passed the MIL-STD 810G standard test, such as a drop test from a height of 100mm, and can still operate in extreme temperatures of up to -33 degrees Celsius.
Even though the body is thin, the choice of ports on the ZenBook 13 and 14 is fairly complete. Call it two Thunderbolt 3 ports, HDMI, and a USB-A port. Wireless connectivity is WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.0. It’s just that Asus doesn’t provide a 3.5mm audio port (provided in the form of a USB-C dongle), and still provides a relatively rarely used microSD slot.
Charging is done via the Thunderbolt 3 port and supports the Power Delivery (PD) standard. This means that this laptop can be recharged using a cellphone charger or other laptop that supports PD standards, as long as the power requirements are appropriate.
