Thanks to the integrated kickstand and detachable keyboard, it can be used in vertical or horizontal orientations such as laptop, dual screen, desktop or sharing.

New additions to the Zenbook series of premium ultraportable laptops include two models of the Zenbook 14 OLED, each powered by either an up to Intel Core Ultra 9 processor and Intel Arc graphics (UX3405)*, or the latest AMD Ryzen 8040 series processors and AMD Radeongraphics (UM3406).
