Asus has a mind-boggling amount of ZenBook models, and not all of them stand out. This year, Asus quietly rolled out the ZenBook 14 UX425 model, which adds some missing features and makes some noticeable improvements across the board. At $1,200, I'd say the UX425 would be a superior thin and light laptop with a lot to recommend it.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Asus has dropped the gold trim along the top row of the keyboard in favor of a more unibody look. Chassis rigidity is a step down from other ZenBooks and popular high-end Ultrabooks like the HP Spectre, Dell XPS, Razer Blade Stealth, or Lenovo Yoga Slim 7. The spring-loaded MicroSD card reader is almost three times faster than the card reader on the older ZenBook 14 UX434.

Pros[**]
  • Bright, contrast-rich IPS display
  • Good battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Good input devices
Cons[**]
  • Chassis rigidity could be firmer
  • Thick bezels

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Asus ZenBook 14 (starts at $799.99; $899.99 in model UX425JA we tested) supplies a 10th Generation Intel Core i7 "Ice Lake" processor, 8GB of RAM, integrated Intel Iris Plus graphics, and a 512GB solid-state drive. The ZenBook's aluminum chassis lends a sleek, luxurious look to the laptop, but when you pick up the machine, the lid and bottom panel flex in your grip.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • All-day battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
