Let’s learn more about the specs, features, official price, and availability of Asus ZenBook 13 and 14 (2020) in Nepal.
Asus ZenBook 13, 14 (2020) Overview
Design and Display
These laptops have a metal construction with the classic ZenBook spun-metal finish on top. The two laptops have a thickness of 13.9mm. As the name implies, the ZenBook 13 and 14 sports a 13-inch and 14-inch Anti-glare display respectively, with an FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. The four-sided frameless NanoEdge design contributes to a screen-to-body ratio of 88% and 90% in the ZenBook 13 and 14, respectively.
As with other premium offerings from Asus, both the ZenBook 13 and 14 feature the Ergolift hinge. The hinge lifts the rear of the laptop when it’s opened for a better typing experience. Similarly, it is also said to improve the cooling and audio quality of the laptops.
Keyboard and TouchPad
ZenBook 13 and 14 feature an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with a key travel distance of 1.4mm. However, there is no space for the numeric keypad which is integrated into the touchpad with LED illumination instead, that Asus calls “NumberPad 2.0“. The glass-covered Precision Touchpad supports up to four-finger smart gestures. It comes with intelligent palm-rejection technology as well.
Performance and Memory
In terms of performance, the Asus ZenBook 13 and 14 are powered by the latest 10th-gen Intel Core i5 – 1035G1 processors. The processor is based on Intel’s 10nm process node and features four cores and eight threads. It can reach the top frequency of 3.60 GHz from the base frequency of 1.00GHz. The variants available in Nepal don’t have a discrete GPU and thus the devices will rely on Intel’s integrated UHD graphics. As for memory, the two devices come with 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM (3200MHz) and 512GB of PCIe Gen 3 SSD.
There is also a cheaper variant of the ZenBook 14 with Ryzen 5 4500U processor. The processor is based on TSMC’s 7nm FinFET process with a core/thread count of 6/6. Similarly, it has the base frequency of the processor is 2.3GHz but it can reach up to 4.0GHz with the performance boost. It is backed by AMD Radeon Graphics with 6 cores (up to 1.5GHz).
