ASUS has added two new 14-inch laptops to its VivoBook series list, typically featuring low prices and balanced hardware configurations. The models in question are VivoBook 14 X411UQ and VivoBook 14 X411UA. Actually, products are officially not introduced, but we will most likely to see at the CES 2018 in early January.
Looking at the technical specifications, we immediately notice that the both Asus VivoBook 14 series laptops are almost identical, except for the graphics department: VivoBook 14 X411UQ uses a Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB memory GPU, while the VivoBook 14 X411UA comes with an integrated Intel HD 620 graphics card.
ASUS offers three options for the CPU: the Kaby Lake R Intel Core i5 8250U and Core i7 8550U, or a cheaper Core i3 7100U (Kaby Lake).
The hardware configurations are different and provide a maximum 16GB of RAM, SSD storage up to 512GB (M.2 SATA3) with a 1TB hard disk, and other options such as WiFi AC, Bluetooth 4.1, USB Type-C (3.1 gen 1), memory card reader and two stereo speakers. Everything is powered by a 42 Wh battery.
Turning to design, the edges are quite soft but do not offer anything particularly elaborate, especially if we compare them to the ZenBook series.
The display size is a 14-inch with HD or FHD panel options, while the measurements of the notebook are equal to 326.4 x 225.5 x 20.4 mm and a weight of 1.35 kg. At the moment, no further detail has emerged on pricing and availability.
