Asus Zenbook 14 UX3402 Review


When shopping for the best laptop for our needs, we all have specific wants and needs we are looking to fulfil. Asus’ Zenbook line is providing a wide variety of impressive devices that manage to fulfil both the portability factor of slimmer notebooks, while also carrying the specs and features of more novel entries into the market. Looking at the Zenbook UX3402, it appears to be the perfect combination of both — providing a device that is sleek, streamlined, and has a host of bells and whistles to make the most out of our workday.

Primarily targeted at those looking for a budget-friendly laptop that is essentially a jack of all trades, the Zenbook UX3402 gives you everything you’d likely need in one package: a gorgeous screen, impressive performance, a substantial battery-life, and a handful of other interesting features that you won’t find on every laptop out there.

On the specs-front, the UX3402 features a 14-inch 2,880 x 1,880 resolution OLED display, a 12th Gen Intel i7 Core chipset, 16 GBs of RAM, a 1 TB SSD, and a 75 Wh battery. On top of that, you get some nifty, more novel features too, such as the ability to lay (almost) flat thanks to a 180-degree hinge, impressive noise-cancellation for video and audio calls, and Asus’ sophisticated touchpad with a built-in, switchable numpad.

Designed with mobility in mind, the laptop measures just 16.9 mm in thickness and is only 1.39 kg, so slipping it into a backpack for the day is easy and convenient. The build quality is impressive too, especially for a laptop in its price range. You also get Asus’ smaller and more compact USB-C laptop charging block and cable, which is a blessing for those who loathe clunkier power bricks. Additionally, a handy canvas laptop sleeve is also provided with the laptop, which is a nice touch from Asus.

PriceCheck tip: Get your work done in peace with some noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones to pair with your laptop or notebook. Check out the best deals on Bluetooth headphones on PriceCheck.

For those who are on the road a lot, often having to hook up to the coffee shop WiFi to get some work done, or whether having that last-minute meeting in an airport lounge, the UX3402 seems to be geared toward those who need efficiency, reliability, and speed without the fuss and cumbersome design of other laptops.

Shopping for the best price on laptops in South Africa is no easy task but with this new offering, your search may be a little easier. The Asus Zenbook 14 UX3402 will be available in South Africa in mid-September 2022, and is priced at R24,999 for the 1TB model; with a 512GB model available too (R22,999). Both models will be available in the Aqua Celadon colour scheme.
