Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus ZenBook 14 UX425EA-BM009T
Robust with its compliance with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, this Ultrabook rechargeable to approximately 60% in 49 minutes sports a sober, elegant and original design with its silver Pine Gray frame with ErgoLift hinge which raises it by 2.5 ° forward when opened.
This thin and light versatile laptop PC is equipped with a good connection consisting of 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (against 1 maximum usually), wireless modules Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ax ) and Bluetooth 5 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, but also 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
No audio port but if you want to take advantage of it, you can use an adapter .
Via the infrared webcam, biometric authentication by facial recognition is possible, in particular with Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, which is useful for distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
It remains to be seen whether it is coupled with Asus’ NumberPad 2.0 technology, which converts the touchpad into a tactile numeric keypad to facilitate entering numbers when needed.
Thanks to its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average as well as important vertical and horizontal viewing angles. As it adopts precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen also lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ZenBook 14 UX425EA-BM009T
The Asus ZenBook 14 UX425EA-BM009T is a compact High Definition laptop PC intended for versatile mobile use.
Easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, this Ultrabook will be of interest to nomads. And this especially since in terms of autonomy, it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its SSD storage which is more energy efficient than a hard drive but also more robust, silent and much faster.
Here the SSD offers a capacity of 512 GB in phase with the standard of hard disks. What if we need more? You can use an external storage unit such as a Thunderbolt / USB-C / USB-3.0 device to achieve fast transfers.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, we obtain a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster application launches, processing and starts / stops or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because while it does not embed a dedicated graphics card, this versatile thin and light silver laptop PC is capable of running games that are not too greedy because it takes advantage of the superior performance of the Intel Iris Xe solution, which we tested. to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
The Iris Xe is housed in the low-power Intel Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor, here associated with 8 GB of RAM. This core delivers good general performance able to suit a number of users.
However, it should be kept in mind that if your project is to often perform demanding graphics and / or processor work, it is better to opt for a PC based on a dedicated graphics card and / or non-low consumption processor. .
