Asus ZenBook 14 UX425 has a strong build, a matte-finish design which is scratch-free and a backlit keyboard with multi-functional keys. Its compact form-factor, fast processor and long battery life with quick charge support seem to be further making a point. Priced at Rs 95,990, the laptop can be a good choice for the office goers who want a reliable device with strong performance and long battery life.

The ZenBook UX425JA will compete with Xiaomi's Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition on the low end, and the Dell XPS 13 and HP Spectre models as well as the MacBook Air (2020) if you have a generous budget. The variant I tested officially costs Rs. 95,990, which is a lot to pay. Still, a laptop like this would have cost much more not too long ago. The Core i5 variant at Rs. 79,990 will be more attractive, and is an interesting option for those who want something one step up from the mainstream.

ASUS is asking for RM4699 for the ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425), which is pretty reasonable for all the hardware they crammed into the machine. The battery life is good, the screen is great, keyboard is excellent and the trackpad is just exemplary. In a nutshell, it’s one fine ultraportable laptop. We can see that ASUS did put all of their knowledge into making it thinner, lighter and nicer to use, although the loss of the headphone jack is just absolutely uncalled for.

It has been really quite a while since I’ve seen a sensible notebook computer in the market. The ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425) is a value-oriented thin and light notebook computer that comes with premium design and features. Even though it is designed to be highly portable, ASUS did not make any trade-offs with this model. Therefore, we are still able to enjoy the notebook’s high performance, full-sized I/O ports and even the unique ASUS NumberPad 2.0.

I’d say yes. ASUS offers this laptop in two different sizes – either in 13-inches of 14-inches, but both of them are at the same price. My biggest complaint is this laptop not having an audio jack – but the importance of that varies depending on how you use your laptop.

If you're looking for a portable everyday laptop that you plan to take to work or school and use for browsing, video streaming, Office apps, text editing, and these sorts of casual activities, this ZenBook 14 UX425JA should be on your list. The metallic construction, the excellent inputs and IO, the matte screens, the long battery life, and the snappy everyday experience, make this a good buy at around 1000-1200 USD, or the equivalent in your region. At the same time, this could be sturdier built, as well as more competent with demanding loads.

Comparisons against the older ZenBook UX434 are inevitable and the short answer is that you should pick the older ZenBook UX434 for performance and the newer ZenBook UX425 for portability. However, remember that the ZenBook UX434 doesn’t have Thunderbolt 3 ports nor does it support USB-C charging. On the other hand, the ZenBook UX425 doesn’t have a headphone jack. Each notebook has its pros and cons. Hopefully, ASUS will create the perfect ZenBook in the near future by melding the things we like about the two.
