ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED (UX5401, 11th Gen) review – great display, sleek design, and a lot more
Source: Laptop Media English
Apparently, one of the best things about this device is its design and build quality. It is covered by the MIL-STD-810H certification, but most importantly, the results can be seen in real life. The laptop is thin and light, and we were surprised to see that it is also pretty powerful as well. Ultimately, the ZenBook 14X OLED is a highly-anticipated device. And we really can see why. Its versatility and surprisingly good performance are combined with a fantastic OLED display. All of this will help you excel at work. Keep an eye out, because it won’t be too long before the version with the 12th Gen Intel processor goes out. And it will surely bring a mighty performance boost.

80% Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Review: A Big Panel Upgrade
Source: Htxt Africa English
In many respects, you know precisely what you’re getting with the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED. This latest addition to the lineup features all the hallmarks we’ve come to know from the brand, including a premium design, handsome chassis and a bevy of ports to ensure connectivity and functionality are never a concern. Added to this is a new panel which brings content to life and truly a step above what we have encountered previously from Asus. This comes at the cost of battery life, which was far less than we have seen on past Zenbooks we have reviewed. As such, while the enhanced panel is welcome and this Zenbook ticks all the usual boxes, it will need to be plugged in a lot of the time, which is only a problem if you do not plan to work remotely or need to be on the go often. Starting at R29 999 (RRP), the Zenbook 14X OLED delivers plenty, but if you’re swayed by the new panel alone. it might be best to wait to see if Asus can nail the battery performance on a future OLED offering. If you are desk bound most of the time though, it is a truly premium piece of hardware to work with.

90% Asus ZenBook 14X UX5401 review (UX5401EA – Core i7, OLED)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
While not as compact or lightweight as other modern ultrabooks, this 14X is by far my favorite ZenBook design to date and a possible recommendation for those looking for a premium multi-purpose portable laptop. At roughly 3.1 lbs, this offers excellent build quality and premium aesthetics, uncompromised inputs, IO, and screen choices, as well as a powerful implementation of the Intel 11th gen hardware platform, paired with a good thermal design and a big battery. It's up to you if the Intel hardware is enough for your needs, though, or you'd rather go the AMD route, or even wait for next-gen specs.

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.
