The best thing we can say about it is that it might be worth carrying around two dongles to take advantage of its excellent price/performance ratio. But the spoiler is the imminent release of ultraportables—including a newer ZenBook 14—with those 11th Generation Tiger Lake CPUs. It's almost certainly worth waiting for the next generation, if only to see whether the UX425JA's already tempting price is pushed even lower.

The ASUS Zenbook 14 UX425JA leaves a good impression with its thin and light form factor and clean minimalistic design. This is the lightest laptop you can get in the market right now and it’s impressive to see that it manages to fit a webcam inside even after being so slim and offering a 90% screen to body ratio. It’s a great laptop for the people who travel every day as its really portable and fits easily in your bag. The build quality is great and it surely feels premium. In addition to this, the LED Numberpad on the touchpad is something unique and gives the laptop a more premium feel.

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.
