The Asus ZenBook 14 returns in 2022 this time equipped with an Oled panel, but above all with an Intel Alder Lake processor with hybrid architecture. It also inaugurates the new design that will be applied across the entire range.
The Asus ZenBook 14 Oled delivers a particularly convincing copy. Its processor gives it first-rate performance, and what about this Oled panel which borders on perfection; it only lacked a decent anti-reflective filter. And to be really fussy, we could also point the finger at the questionable distribution of the connectors, without that tarnishing the excellent overall balance sheet.
- Well calibrated Oled panel.
- Connectors provided.
- Core i7 performance.
- Wi-Fi 6E ready.
- No anti-reflective treatment of the slab.
- Mediocre webcam.
- Connection distribution.
- Soldered memory.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
The Inspiron 16 Plus is evolving in small steps in 2022 and Dell is improving a recipe that was already working well. The design of the PC is certainly not as refined as that of the XPS, but if you are looking for a computer with a good performance/price ratio, it is an excellent option. Adorned with extensive connectivity, a well-calibrated screen and a quality headphone output, this laptop can be used by content creators, but it will be necessary to move towards a version with a dedicated GPU for more better performance in this area. Some negative points are still to be noted, such as a limited maximum brightness, a bulky charger and the absence of a numeric keypad which could annoy some users.
