ASUS powers on-the-go professionals with the all-new ASUS ZenBook 14

The beautiful new ZenBook 14 is more portable than ever. It’s thinner, lighter, and incredibly compact, yet includes HDMI, Thunderbolt™ 4 USB-C®, USB Type-A, and MicroSD card reader for unrivaled versatility. Built to deliver powerful performance, ZenBook 14 is your perfect choice for an effortless on-the-go lifestyle.

Screen Queen

Known for its stunning design and portability, the all-new ASUS ZenBook 14 now comes in an incredible 2.8K resolution QHD Display – making still and moving images brighter and more alive. With 1.7 times more pixels than the FHD panels, the all-new ZenBook 14 delivers smooth picture and video quality of up to 300 nits of brightness. The QHD display is made more power-efficient, so the battery life is not compromised.

Viewing experience, may it be for work or play, has never been this immersive, all thanks to the ZenBook 14’s 90% screen-to-body ratio. Users can also multitask efficiently as the bigger screen allows multiple windows to be viewed all at the same time. One can simultaneously work on a document while on an online meeting.

More Powerful, Same Portability

Powered by the latest 11th Generation Intel Core processors, the ZenBook 14 allows users to multitask efficiently. Under the hood are also its next-level Intel Iris Xe graphics and 16 GB RAM, supplemented by 512GB PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSD and the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax), offering a performance one needs to tick off every single box in that to-do list.

Remote working is also made more efficient with the ZenBook 14, thanks to its battery that can last up to 15 hours1 on a single charge. It also has a fast charge feature that lets users juice up to 60% in under 49 minutes so that urgent reports can finally be completed without worrying about running out of battery.

Moreover, the all-new ZenBook 14 supports the new ASUS USB-C Easy Charge feature2, which allows them to be conveniently charged from a wide range of standard USB-C chargers, as well as enjoy ultrafast charging with any USB-C Power Delivery-certified charger, such as portable chargers or power banks. USB-C Easy Charge takes the frustration out of long journeys or travels in locations with limited mains power.

Full I/O Setup

While working outside the four corners of an office is a kind of freedom many have been enjoying, connectivity has been pushed at the forefront of one’s essentials. Without comprising its portability, the all-new ZenBook 14 is packed with full I/O capabilities. This includes full-size HDMI and USB Type-A ports, two high-speed Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, and a microSD card reader for easy mobile data transfer. The two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports support fast charging, up to two 4K UHD external displays for an expanded visual workspace, and up to 40 Gbps data speeds for ultrafast file transfers.

Design Done Right

For those who prefer working in flexible workplaces, the ZenBook 14 is the perfect on-the-go device. Weighing at approximately 1.17 kg, users can be productive, whether in a café or the beachside. It’s also dressed in a compact and elegant all-metal chassis that’s a mere 13.9 mm thin, putting sleekness in portability. The all-new ZenBook 14 epitomizes design done right with its array of physical features that provide its users a luxurious experience even when working hours on end.

Typing on the ZenBook 14 is made more satisfying and comfortable with its edge-to-edge ergonomic keyboard design. The precision-engineered ErgoLift hinge automatically tilts the keyboard to the optimum typing angle when the lid is opened. This also provides an extra cooling airflow under the laptop.

An integrated infrared (IR) camera on the top bezel makes password-free face login fast and easy with Windows Hello. It also works in dim lighting conditions, so accessing ZenBook 14 is easier and quicker than ever in any environment.

The ZenBook 14 features an ASUS ClearVoice Mic with AI-trained noise-canceling technology to ensure clear voice outgoing communications in online meetings or internet voice calls. They also use ASUS ClearVoice Speaker technology to filter out ambient noise from incoming audio streams.
