The ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED is reasonably priced for its category and offers a stunning 14-inch OLED touchscreen with high resolution and vibrant colors, well-suited for general use and media consumption. Its Intel i7 processor and 16GB of RAM ensure smooth performance for most tasks, including engineering software, though dedicated gaming or intensive 3D work might be limited by the integrated graphics. Thin and lightweight with good portability, it has a solid build and a backlit keyboard but might not last a full day on a single charge with moderate use. It lacks a number pad and has a fair range of ports, including Thunderbolt 4 for fast data transfer and charging. Give Feedback

PCMag

Matthew Buzzi | September 2023
"While one of the more budget-friendly configurations of the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED may make a compelling case as a top value pick, it’s difficult to be disappointed with the more expensive model we reviewed here. At its core, for all models, it’s a luxury-built laptop with extreme portability and a gorgeous OLED display. Our unit rocks with a snappy Core i9 processor for getting real work done, and the discrete GPU—even if it has a clear power ceiling—is a bonus for creative pros."
