Beauty over time, effortlessly transferable
The latest ZenBook Classic series offers two screen sizes. For those who prefer the big screen, the ultra-light ZenBook 13 weighs 1.07 kg, and for those who prefer the big screen, the elegant ZenBook 14 is available. Both models have a compact and elegant all-metal housing with a thickness of only 13.9 mm. ZenBook 13 and 14 are also incredibly energy efficient, with up to 22 hours of battery life on a single charge.

ASUS ZenBook 13 and 14’s new elegant design is complemented by the new timeless pine gray color – a bright, calm, peaceful, and high-quality hue. It projects professional wisdom and has a special off-centre version of the iconic ZenBook metal clamping system.
I/O not exceeded

ZenBooks 13 and 14 also support the new ASUS USB-C Easy Charge feature, making them easy to charge with a variety of standard USB-C chargers. With USB-C Easy Charge, users can enjoy ultra-fast charging from any USB-C Power Delivery certified charger, such as the included 65-watt charger, or slower charging using airplane chargers, portable chargers or AC adapters when the power outlet is unavailable.

ASUS ZenBook 13 and ZenBook 14 feature four-sided NanoEdge displays that are extremely bright and sharp, with slim frames that create a screen-to-body ratio of up to 90% for an even more intense viewing experience.
The new ergonomic design of the keyboard at the edges widens the keyboard for more comfort when typing. It also creates space for an additional set of useful function keys on the right side of the keyboard. For maximum typing comfort, the ErgoLift precision strap automatically tilts the keyboard to the optimum angle when opening the lid. This action also creates a space under the notebook for extra cooling of the airflow.
To facilitate data entry, ASUS NumberPad 2.0 is available to increase productivity. This is a two-function touchpad with a fully integrated, LED-backlit numeric keypad: Simply press the touchpad icon to turn the numeric keypad on and off.
