Reviews for the Asus ZenBook 14X UX3404VC

88.5% Asus ZenBook 14X (2023) laptop review: OLED ultrabook at its limit | Notebookcheck
Asus' new ZenBook 14X comes equipped with the powerful Intel Core i9-13900H. With an above-average robust case, an OLED display with 120 Hz and very good battery life, the ZenBook impresses, but the processor has its limits. More about that in the following review.
80% ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED UX3404 review: Great performance & portability (Updated)
Source: Hardware Zone English
If you’ve been paying attention to what I've written, then you’ll know that the ZenBook 14X is a thin, relatively light, ultraportable notebook that has a powerful processor and fairly decent “game-ready” discrete GPU. If you expect all of this to come with a heavy price tag, you’d be right. It’s S$2,699 which makes it one of ASUS’ more expensive ZenBooks.

14.50":

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.
