Creativity. Style. Innovation. These are the qualities that define the elegant new ZenBook 14. Everything in this super-compact masterpiece is designed to give you the freedom to discover your creative vision, including the stunning slim-bezel NanoEdge display with its 86% screen-to-body ratio.

ZenBook 14 is waiting: are you ready to unleash your creative vision?

NanoEdge Display

Unbounded beauty

Designed to give you more screen area in less physical space, the NanoEdge design has slimmer bezels on all four sides to make any visuals more immersive, with less distraction for your eyes. It also features wide-view technology for clear images even when viewed from extreme angles. And thanks to this super-compact display, ZenBook 14 has a footprint that’s as small as many 13-inch laptops — so you can explore your creative vision anywhere!

Smaller bezel, smaller laptop

ZenBook 14 has a super-compact, slim and lightweight metal chassis that’s no bigger than many 13-inch models, giving you unrivaled portability and take-anywhere convenience. None of the timeless elegance that’s the ZenBook hallmark has been lost, though: there’s the iconic Zen-inspired spun-metal finish on the lid and a sophisticated Utopia Blue finish, enhanced with a subtle silver trim panel above the keyboard for an extra stylish touch.

Reinventing function keys

Attention to every useful detail is a key part of the ASUS design philosophy. We’ve introduced an evolutionary new way of using the humble Fn key to access your laptop’s features, such as the volume or display brightness. In the past, you’d press the Fn key first to use these features: now, the function keys operate the advanced features by default. If you want to access the standard function keys (F1-F12) simply use the Fn key combination.


Connectivity

Mobility without bounds

A comprehensive set of high-performance I/O ports gives ZenBook 14 the ultimate, hassle-free connectivity for versatile flexibility whether you’re in the office or on the road. And the integrated gigabit-class Wi-Fi let you enjoy ultrafast downloads and smooth streaming with greater range and more stable network connections than ever before.
