Lightweight arm candy

The latest ZenBook Classic series offers two screen sizes. For the ultimate traveler, there’s the ultralight 1.07 kg ZenBook 13; and for those who prefer a larger screen, there’s the sleek ZenBook 14. However both models are designed for effortless portability, with a compact and elegant all-metal chassis that’s a mere 13.9 mm thin.
Although both laptops are just 13.9 mm thin, it’s amazing that ASUS managed to still include a full-size HDMI and USB Type-A ports, two high-speed Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports (which support fast charging), and a microSD card reader for easy mobile data transfer. Thus giving bragging rights to ASUS as no other current 13.3-inch or 14-inch laptop offers all these I/O ports within such a thin design.
