The lightweight ZenBook 14 (UX435) houses a Tiger Lake processor, a dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX450 discrete graphics, 16GB LPDDR4X onboard memory, 1TB of SSD storage, and a 63-Wh battery – all housed in its Pine Grey brushed concentric aluminum metal chassis.
The Zenbook comes bundled with a 65W USB Type-C power supply, a plug-and-play USB to Ethernet adapter, and a black laptop sleeve.
The left side of the device provides two Thunderbolt 4 connections. The first one is for power delivery, while the second one is used for DisplayPort via USB-C to connect either a docking station or an external GPU.
On the right side, users can spot a microSD card reader, an audio combo port, and a USB Type-A port.
Below the backlit chiclet keyboard is a touchscreen secondary display called ScreenPad which can be configured for different functions and commands. By default, it has quick access to Number Key, Calculator, Alarms & Clock, and even Spotify among others.
