80% Asus ZenBook 14 UM431 review: Classy design meets swift performance
Source: India Today English
The Asus ZenBook 14 UM431 is a great looking midrange ultrabook and considering the specifications Asus is offering, this is a great laptop. The AMD Ryzen 5 3500U chipset has enough power to look after the regular computing stuff while the battery life is good enough to let you go outside without carrying its heavy charger. Moreover, the classy design with sharp edges makes this a stunner on the desk along the usual see of boring black plastic boxes.
