82% Asus Zenbook 14 (UM431D) Review ⁠— Such A Beauty
Source: Pokde English
The ASUS ZenBook 14 is one nice ultraportable, with a design that looks way more premium than its RM2999 price tag, and a good display to boot. The unfortunate part is that you can’t really use the sweet screen for much due to the limited 6GB of RAM available. With it being non-upgradable, it really is a pity that this laptop is held back by such a simple handicap. If you plan on using the ASUS ZenBook 14 UM431D for less RAM-hogging applications, it might be a decent choice, as you really don’t get such pretty laptops at this sub-RM3000 price point.

80% Asus ZenBook 14 UM431 Review – Affordable AMD powered workhorse
Source: Hitech Century English
What you have with the ZenBook 14 UM431 is a highly affordable, well constructed ultraportable that has excellent build quality and serviceable performance. Battery life is middling at best but what makes it truly appealing is that it clocks in at just RM2,999. If you’re on a budget and are looking for a good looking workhorse, this is well worth your consideration.

Review – ASUS ZenBook 14 UM431D: It’s AMD’s turn to rise
Source: NLT English
However, we do see the ZenBook 14 UM431D as an everyday laptop to get some simple Microsoft Office work done, with Chrome running YouTube and social media. Maybe Spotify and lightweight Photoshop too. For that use case, the ZenBook 14 UM431D is an instant recommendation from us.

88% ASUS ZenBook 14 UM431D Review: The Prettiest Ryzen Ultrabook
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
Retailing at RM2999, the ZenBook 14 falls under the competitive mainstream laptop category, where other brands are also offering laptops with a similar set of hardware, but what’s going to make you want to consider this machine would be its great hardware build and design, although it’s quite a shame that it doesn’t give you the option to increase RAM, you can still at least upgrade the SSD if you ever want to, this is the most beautiful AMD Ryzen mobile powered laptop that you will ever get the chance to own.

First Look at the Asus ZenBook 14 UM431 notebook
Source: Hitech Century English
The Asus ZenBook series usually packs Intel processors and, in some cases, NVIDIA MX-series graphics but this time around, Asus has issued a variant of their new ZenBook 14 series with an AMD processor and Radeon Vega 8 integrated graphics. Dubbed the ZenBook 14 UM431, the notebook costs just a hair under RM3,000 which is a good deal cheaper than its Intel-packing cousins but how does it measure up to Asus’ usual standards? Well, let’s peek under the hood and find out.

80% Asus Zenbook 14 UM431 review: Good performance for its size, but not cool enough for gaming
Source: The Indian Express English
At Rs 59,990, the Asus ZenBook 14 is a decent offering and is able to compete with a lot of slim and light offerings currently in the market including the MacBook Air and the Lenovo Ideapad S540. It is quite a good laptop and might have been able to take the all-rounder tag if it wasn’t for a few quirks. If you are in the market for a thin and light laptop, the Asus ZenBook 14 UM431 is quite a good option. However, if gaming is a requirement, I would recommend that you try and find another option, with better cooling capabilities and a more airy design.

83% Asus Zenbook 14 (UM431) Review

Given that the new AMD Ryzen-powered Asus ZenBook 14 is entering the market at Rs 59,990 when the refreshed ZenBook 14 with an Intel 8th Gen Core i5 CPU and ScreenPad 2.0 is selling on Amazon.in for Rs 75,990, I expected some visible compromises in screen quality, perhaps audio, and overall performance. But to my pleasant surprise, that is not the case with the new Asus entrant. Except for a few design niggles here or there (small keys and loose touchpad, for example), the new Asus ZenBook 14 is perfect all around.

Summing up, how good is the Zenbook 14 UM431DA with Ryzen 5 priced around 60000 in India? In our testing of this premium ultrabook, we were quite impressed with the performance offered on this laptop. With great design and nano edge display and good performance coupled with decent battery life, the Zenbook 14 UM431DA is a good option for anyone looking for a premium experience at a lesser price . The cons of the laptop include, no USB type A 3.1 gen 2 ports and it ships with older generation. Also, there is no USB Type C charging option available. Otherwise, the Zenbook 14 UM431DA is a great option at this price segment.

ASUS ZenBook 14 UM431 review – ZenBook excellence with an AMD brain
Source: Laptop Media English
With the last couple of models, we tested from the ZenBook series it became clear that ASUS is setting a standard for good all-rounders in the league of ultrabooks. While the ZenBook 14 UX434 can claim an innovations award thanks to its ScreenPad and good performance capabilities, the ZenBook S13 UX392 is one of the easiest laptops to carry around, plus – it looks stunning.
