If you’ve been lamenting the lack of ports on thin and light laptops lately, Asus has just launched their new ZenBook 14 UX425 that will definitely cover you.

Weighing as little as 1.17kg and measuring 13.9mm, it’s surprising that Asus has managed to pack a full-sized HDMI port, one USB Type-A port, two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports and a MicroSD card reader in.

What’s more, Asus claims that the 67 Wh lithium-polymer battery in the laptop can last up to 22 hours on a single charge. Of course, real-life usage most likely won’t last up to that claim, but it’s a good sign nonetheless.

Intel’s 10th-gen processors also make an appearance here, with the minimum configuration being an i5 chip alongside a 512GB NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD for storage. RAM might be a bit limiting, at just 8GB, but we don’t think anybody will get this laptop for intense video editing.

With a starting price of S$1,398, it’s definitely something to keep in mind for people looking to get a lightweight laptop that can last a whole day while not skimping on ports.

The Asus ZenBook 14 UX425 (starting from S$1,398) is now available at the Asus Exclusive Store, Asus Online Store and all authorised retailers.
