After its ROG gaming laptops, ASUS launched its consumer range for business, casual, and student customers. The ZenBook range is the most expensive yet has many features that make it worth the money.
I reviewed ASUS’s ZenBook OLED 14 for three weeks. When I unboxed the laptop, its lightness, compactness, and sleekness immediately caught my attention.
ASUS calls the ZenBook the “ultimate combination of productivity and portability in a premium package,” and I generally agree. Its 1.35-kilogram weight makes it portable and easy to use for regular tasks.
Bright and colorful, the OLED screen has great viewing angles. The screen has a 90% screen-to-body ratio, 2.8K resolution (2880×1800), low side bezels, and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The laptop has 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage for realistic, vibrant images.
The screen is bright enough for indoor use at 400 nits, although the reflective surface detracts in direct sunlight. TUV Rheinland hardware-based blue light emission filtering lowers eye strain on the screen.
The device has a 2.5K IPS display with 400 nits of brightness and 100% sRGB coverage.
For students, editors, and journalists who type thousands of words a day, the EdgeSense keypad is quiet and comfortable. Backlight support, which I think is now essential, is available on the keyboard.
As expected from a computer costing about Rs 90,000, the ASUS ZenBook 14 OLED features a premium design and solid structure. A 180-degree ErgoLift hinge lets the laptop’s screen swivel.It also has HDMI 2.1, a 3.5mm audio connector, a microSD card reader, and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 connections.
The ZenBook 14 OLED has a beautiful display, premium design and build quality, great performance and battery life, and a very comfortable keyboard.
