Back in August, ASUS launched the ZenBook 13 and VivoBook 14 with 10th gen Intel processors in the Philippines. Now ASUS has launched the refreshed ZenBook 13 UX325 and VivoBook S14 S433 in the Philippines. While the new ZenBook and VivoBook may look similar at first glance, both laptops come packed with Intel’s latest 11th gen processors.

The new ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325 packs an 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor which promises to be even more powerful than its 10th gen predecessor. Plus, the 11th gen i5 comes with an Intel Iris Xe–an integrated graphics card that should perform to the level of select dedicated laptop GPUs.

As for its display, the ZenBook 13 has a 13.3-inch FHD screen with slim bezels, making for a display with an 88% screen to body ratio. To top it all off, the ZenBook 13 has a good selection of I/O ports, including two Thunderbolt ports, as well as HDMI and USB Type-A.
