ASUS Malaysia today has announced the local availability of its 2023 Zenbook 14X OLED laptop. As you may recall, this year’s iteration was initially unveiled during CES 2023 earlier this year along with its sibling, the Zenbook Pro 14 OLED. The new portable computer will consist of three models equipped with 13th Generation Intel Core processors, with the Core i7 variant now available for purchase in Malaysia.
To recap, the 2023 ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED shares the same design across all of its models; featuring ceramic-like and finger resistant top lid in either Inkwell Gray or Sandstone Beige, as well as a US MIL-STD 810H military-grade standard body that weighs around 1.5 kg and 16.9 mm thin. Also onboard is a backlit chiclet keyboard with 1.4 mm key-travel and numberpad support, FHD camera with IR, as well as built-in array microphone and Harman Kardon stereo speakers with Smart Amp and Dolby Atmos support.
The series also features the same 14.5-inch OLED touch screen with 16:10 aspect ratio, 2.8K resolution, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The display comes with VESA DisplayHDR True Black 600 certification, TUV Rheinland low blue light certification, and is Pantone validated for industry-standard colour fidelity. ASUS says a non-touch screen version is also available for certain variants.
Internally, the laptop is equipped with either a i5-13500H, i7-13700H or i9-13900H 13th Gen Intel Core processor, which is paired together with either Intel Iris X graphics or an NVIDIA RTX 3050 discrete graphics, up to 16 GB LPDDR5 4800 MHz RAM, and up to 1 TB PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD. I/O Ports include a USB-A 3.2, two Thunderbolt 4 with display/power delivery, a HDMI 2.1 TMDS, and a 3.5 mm combo audio jack. Meanwhile, wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.
Besides that, the Zenbook 14X OLED comes with Windows 11 Home, McAfee LiveSafe protection, ProArt Creator Hub, ScreenXpert and GlideX pre-installed. Additionally, it also features a long-lasting 70 Wh battery, which can be fully topped up to 60% in just 49 minutes via the included Type-C 90 W AC adapter.
As mentioned earlier, the first to arrive in Malaysia is the Core i7 variant of the 2023 Zenbook 14X OLED, which is available for purchase now via the official ASUS web store and authorised retailers across the nation. The Core i5 and Core i9 with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 discrete graphics, on the other hand, will only be on local store shelves by early April 2023 at RM 4,999 and RM 6,999 respectively.
