Reviews for the Asus ZenBook 14 UX425EA-HM038T
Priced at PHP 64,995 for the i5 variant, the ASUS Zenbook 14 UX425E is not exactly the apex predator of ultrabooks out there. It is, however, a decent improvement over its previous generations—although not without any faults of its own. For one, it is easy to look past the absence of an ethernet port, but the fact that you still have to lug a 3.5mm dongle might be enough to set a few people off. The price is also very competitive, as other Ultrabooks such as Acer’s Swift and Lenovo’s Yoga series sit around this price range as well. But one thing’s for certain is that the Zenbook 14 passes our standards of what a decent ultrabook should be: good battery life, easy to carry around, and has reliable performance. So if anything, ASUS has only made the Zenbook 14 a very palatable option for those willing to pay the premium price without sacrificing quality or build.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
