Asus Zenbook has always been a reputable name in the world of laptops. If you’re looking for a notebook to deal with your day-to-day office work, some designing work, video, and photo editing and pair it all up with some gaming on the side, you really won’t find anything better than the Zenbook 14.
Processor: Core i5-8265 / Core i7-8565
Memory: 8GB / 16GB
Storage: 256GB / 512GB SSD
Display Size: 14”
The Zenbook comes in two different variants. Both have different processors, memory, and storage space. The first variant comes with an Intel Core i5-8265 processor with 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 GB PCI-e SSD. The second variant is an Intel i7-8565 variant with 16 gigs of RAM and 512 GB SSD. This is highly convenient for most users as you can easily opt for more horsepower if needed.
The laptop has an Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU which is a 4 GB GDDR5 graphics card. It’s not only perfect for all your graphics related tasks like photo and video editing, but it can also game a bit too and deliver decent fps on most modern AAA games on low-medium settings.
One of the coolest features of this laptop would be the multipurpose screen pad which converts to a screen on command. It can turn into an app switcher, a calculator, a notepad, or even a Numpad for easier data entry making it perfect for people striving for that convenience factor.
- The hard drive space on the Core i5 variant is too low.
- The MX250 is a 4GB GPU, but due to the low power it consumes, it doesn’t perform on par with other 4GB GPUs like a GTX 1050Ti or an RX 570.
The way this laptop is built makes it the perfect device for an office worker looking for a daily driver for his work and home as well. It’s a laptop that might not be much in terms of gaming, but overall, it’s a great machine and definitely worth the price.
