In our Asus Zenbook 14 OLED review, we praise its great battery life and striking 90Hz display. We also like how its massive touchpad doubles as a numeric keyboard. We gave the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED an overall rating of 4 out of 5-stars.

To test the Zenbook 14 OLED's might, we opened 30 Google Chrome tabs, two of which streamed 1080p YouTube videos simultaneously. We only saw a second or two of lag while switching between tabs. We pushed it further by launching a new Google Doc and began typing away. The Zenbook 14 OLED kept chugging along with no noticeable slowdowns.

In our lab's Geekbench 5.4 overall performance test, the laptop notched a multi-core score of 8,590. It beat the mainstream laptop average score of (6,661) and falls slightly short of its competitor, the Acer Swift 5 (9,859).

Despite its thin frame, the Acer Swift 5 supplies you with a good amount of ports and slots. It has  2 x Thunderbolt 4 ports, 1 x USB 3.2 Type-A port, 1 x HDMI port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. 

Now just under $500, the Asus Zenbook 14 is a tremendous value. It's a wise choice if you want a  laptop that doesn't sacrifice performance for price.
