Asus has done a commendable job shaving bezels around the screen without altering the natural webcam position. With a screen-to-body ratio exceeding 90 percent, it truly fits a 14-inch panel in a near 13-inch laptop chassis. The metallic lid with Asus signature concentric ring pattern makes it feel extremely premium.

The Asus M409DA-EK124T has a lot working in its favor. Asus doesn’t falter with basics like Keyboard and battery life and provides usual connectivity options, but the biggest attraction is Zenbook 14’s slick, compact and light narrow-bezel casing, which is complemented by a good quality and high contrast IPS LCD panel.
