Hopefully by reading the specification you can understand what’s going on in this laptop. Let’s read review of the Asus zenbook 14 UX433 laptop.
Design and Build Quality : The biggest change has been brought to the design sector by Asus’ ZenBook lineup. The thicker bezel of the previous models has been replaced by the sleek bezel. I love the fact that Asus has moved away from the previous bezel and upgraded their models to the Thin Bezel.
The laptop is very light in weight and its finish must be said of the premium level. The biggest reason for its light weight is the body made of aluminum. The use of this aluminum weighs just 1.09kg.
Another factor that draws everyone’s attention to the design is its 92% screen-to-body ratio. Asus used its own Argolift technology. With which the keyboard opens up 3 degrees when opening the laptop, so that you get comfortable typing benefits and extra cooling benefits.
The laptop has a length of 7.83 inches, a width of 12.56 inches and a height of 0.63 inches. It is understood that the portability of the laptop was made when thinking about it. In size, this device is similar to an A4 size paper that is easily carryable.
Another unique feature of this laptop is its touchpad numberpad. Numeric number pads are generally not available on 13/14 inch devices. However, the beautiful Numeric number pad has been added to the Asus zenbook 14 UX433 laptop’s keyboard.
When you open the laptop you will find a 14.5-inch display on its 12.56-inch body. The 3D IR HD camera is getting on top of the display. It will unlock your laptop through the Hello Facial Recognition of Windows. There is no fingerprint scanner due to this IR camera. However, I would not view this as a drawback, as the unlock speed of its IR camera is good and accurate.
At the bottom of the display is the numeric padless keyboard. The distance between keys from one key to the other was about 1.4 millimeters. Being a backlit keyboard, I was able to type in the night or in the dark.
Find out the characteristics of the Asus zenbook 14 UX433 laptop with other laptops in the best selling Asus ZenBook series on Amazon from the chart below.
Display : Asus’ device uses a 14 inch IPS panel, whose resolution is Full HD or 1920 x 1080 pixels. The screen-to-body ratio was 16: 9. The pixel density of the display was 157 ppi. Maximum brightness is noted on the display. It is 97% sRGB, 71% NTSC, 75% Adobe RGB supported. The color of the panel is called Accurate in my opinion.
Hardware and Upgradability : I have already mentioned what the laptop has as hardware. There is no RAM upgrade on the laptop. You can only upgrade its storage via NVME M Dot 2 SSD.
Bottom Part will be opened with its Massive Battery and M2 slot next to it. RAM is soldered to the motherboard here so no upgradeability. Apart from the base variants of laptops, there are dedicated MX150 GPUs that allow you to do light gaming.
Ports and Connectivity : On the left side of the laptop is a USB 3.1 Type-A and a 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port and an HDMI port for display output. Nearby are the extinct 3.5mm headphone microphone combo jacks, a standard USB 2.0, and a microSD slot. There is no Ethernet port. Asus has instead given the USB to LAN adapter in the box. Has WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0.
Keyboard and Trackpad : Asus uses different types of keyboards on its laptops, which are different from each other. So their typing fillings also have a difference. Using the keyboard feels good to me.
The layout of the keyboard is called standard. There is a small arrow key and a function button above it. You get the power button on the far right. To me the key to distance seems a bit low. Because during the early typing, there was an occasional missype. And the keyboard has a backlit which I think is a very important feature.
Come on the trackpad. And here is the main attraction of this laptop. Because the right-hand corner of the touchpad is pressed, the truckpad shows its numerical number pad. The size of the truck pad seems standard to me. The clicks were smoothed.
Battery : One of the selling points of this Asus device is its battery. The laptop’s battery is backed up by about 11 hours for normal web browsing. I got about 7 hours of backup on movie playing. In light game play, the laptop has only been able to backup for around 2 hours. It takes about 2 hours to fully charge the 65 W charger with a laptop.
This was my experience and review with the Asus ZenBook UX433 laptop. Whether to buy or not to buy is all up to you. If you do not like Mac OS, you can look at this laptop as the best alternative and do not be discouraged.
