Just a week after the release of the new VivoBook S series, ASUS has launched another line of laptops–the new ASUS ZenBook series. Consisting of the ZenBook 13 (UX325) and ZenBook 14 (UX425), these new laptops are made for users looking for a productivity partner that’s incredibly portable.

The highlight feature of the new ZenBook series is its ultra-thin profile. Both the ZenBook 13 and 14 are only 13.9 mm thin, with the ZenBook 13 weighing in at only 1.07 kg. In spite of how portable both laptops are, they still come with a wealth of I/O options, including full-size USB ports, a microSD card reader, and even an HDMI port.

Aside from I/O, what’s impressive about this ZenBook 13 and 14 is their hardware. Both laptops pack 10th gen Intel Core i5 processors, as well as 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Thanks to these, both ZenBooks should be capable devices for all your work or study needs.

ASUS also didn’t sacrifice battery life for portability as both ZenBooks come with large batteries that are reported to last for up to 22 hours on a single charge. The ZenBook 13 and 14 also support fast charging via USB power delivery through its USB Type-C ports.

Other stand-out features of the ZenBook 13 and 14 are their FullHD NanoEdge displays, edge-to-edge keyboards, and the inclusion of a NumberPad 2.0 integrated on both laptops’ touch pads.

The new ASUS ZenBook 13 (UX325) and ZenBook 14 (UX425) are both priced at PHP 54,995. The ZenBook 13 (UX325) is now available in ASUS Concept Stores and partner retailers as well as the ASUS E-StoreLazada and Shopee. Meanwhile, the ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425) will be available starting mid-August 2020.
