Reviews for the Asus ZenBook 14X UM5401, 5900HX

Asus ZenBook 14X OLED – pre-review, UM5401 model with AMD Ryzen
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Having used this updated Asus ZenBook 14X for the last weeks, I must say I’m impressed. Asus pretty much addressed all my major complaints of the standard ZenBook 14 models of the past: the 14X feels sturdier made, offers stiffer hinges that allow the screen to go flat 180 degrees, offers a much improved thermal design that blows the hot air to the sides, and not into the screen, offers faster hardware, and excellent 16:10 screen options, both matte or touch. Plus a camera, finger-sensor, 3.5 mm jack, etc. Anyway, that’s about it for now on the Asus ZenBook 14X series. Look for our final review for proper conclusions, and in the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this series and if there’s anything in particular that you might want us to test for the review, so get in touch down below.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
