ASUS has launched its new ZenBook 13 UX325 and VivoBook S14 S433 laptops in the Philippines. The new laptops are the first in the country to be powered by Intel’s latest 11th generation processors.
“The celebration of our 11th year in the Philippines is one marked with one milestone after another. We carry this strong momentum from the third quarter of the year, when we hit our record-high market share, which was then followed by recently being recognized by globally-renowned Laptop Magazine as the Number 1 PC brand for 2020 in the world. And now, we take pride in being the first solution for Filipinos who are looking for the most premium and productive computing experience available right now in the market. Our newest ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325 and ASUS VivoBook S14 S433 are in fact the Philippines’ first laptops to carry the much-talked about 11th Gen Intel Processors.
