Those who’ve been staying at home these past few months would agree that working remotely isn’t always the easiest, amirite? Hours can seem longer as we’re expected to constantly be online, and work can pile up, leaving us with little time for ourselves.
But it's always important to draw the line between work and home life, if only to stay positive and keep the stress away. One way to do that is by making sure you're equipped with all the tools you need to maintain a balance between your personal and professional life. For example, don't underestimate the importance of a good working unit. After all, a powerful laptop can boost your productivity and help you set and make the most of your well-deserved ~*me-time*~.
The good news: We found laptops that can help you with these essentials—the new ASUS ZenBook 13 (UX325) and ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425). Here are some of their features that will help you navigate WFH like a pro:
1. They’re super lightweight and ultrathin.
At just 13.9 mm thin and 1.07 kg light, you’d be hard-pressed to find an equally portable laptop. This makes it ideal for lugging around, depending on what you need it for. Prop it up on your desk or on the dining table for work mode and carry it to your bed for when you’re ready to catch up on your fave series.
2. They have full I/O ports despite the sleek design.
For ultrathin units, the new ASUS ZenBooks come with complete I/O capabilities. There are HDMI and USB Type-A ports if you want to hook up your laptop to a second screen or other devices. Plus, they’re also packed with Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports and a microSD card reader for easy and quick data transfers.
3. They're fast-charging and have long battery life.
Those who love binging on K-dramas can enjoy long hours of uninterrupted viewing given the laptops’ 22 hours of battery life. In addition, they also feature fast-charging technology that allows the units to charge up to 60 percent in just 49 minutes!
4. They come with built-in number pads to help boost productivity.
While many laptops opt to skip the numeric keypad to conserve space, the ASUS ZenBooks will not require you to purchase a separate device just to crunch in some numbers. We love how the ASUS NumberPad 2.0 utilizes the otherwise empty space in the touchpad to house a LED-illuminated number pad, a feature that those who work with Excel sheets are likely to appreciate.
In addition, they're powered by the latest Intel 10th Gen CPU and have memory and storage spaces that are not to be sneered at. With 8 GB RAM, the laptops promise a speedy performance, which will help you finish your work on time. Meanwhile, the storage capacity reaches up to 512 GB so you can install all your needed work software and keep the films and music you’ll be hurrying to watch and listen to once you get your tasks done.
The best part: The ASUS ZenBook 13 and 14 are included in ASUS’ month-long promo, Gear Up For The New Normal. In partnership with Globe at Home, buyers of these units are entitled to a free bundle of a Globe at Home Prepaid WiFi router and Lazada e-vouchers worth up to P5,000 that can be used to purchase ASUS products online. Promo runs until August 31, 2020 so do check it out.
Both laptops are at P54,995, a worth-it price considering that you're going to be using your unit practically ~everyday~ for years!
