ZenBook 14 (UX435) – Features
Based on the laptop’s features, what popped out at me the most was the ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX435)’s compact 14-inch dimension. Ya’ll know that I’m biased for slimmer, more lightweight laptops (with my personal one being the 14-inch Zephyrus G14, HAHA), so for professionals who are on-the-go and have no permanent work station, this is a really great option.
The ASUS Zenbook 14 (UX435) also has the ScreenXpert 2.0 as its touchpad. This gives its users the flexibility to switch between specific apps, making productivity much more efficient. This is especially helpful when you’re too frazzled by the many things you have to do, and you just have to look at your touchpad to decide what to do next, LOL!
The ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX435EG) will be available in select ASUS Concept Stores and ASUS Partner Multibrand stores nationwide. You can also get it online via the ASUS Official E-Store, ASUS Official Shopee Store, and ASUS official Lazada Store. Check the official Facebook page to know more! 🙂
