Pros: - OLED screen is bright (400 nits)
- Processor is fast in high performance mode. (Scored 97% on user benchmark)
-Gpu is actually very good. I am inpressed (I'm not sure how it works but the mx350 and iris xe are working together simultaneously to create the graphics (i can see it in task manager)) I thought I would need a 3050 to satisfy my gaming and multimedia needs on a laptop but this is actually quite good. N yes I do have a $4000 desktop setup for higher end games. Make sure you always run in performance mode when you game. The fan keels this gpu temp to around 45 to 60 degrees which is excellent. I
Also with the mx350 it keeps the laptop thin unlike if you get a 3050, 3060, 3070, or 3080, it will make your laptop thicker. And it's a lot cooler with the fans on of course.
Cons: - low battery (2 games of aram league of legends brought my battery down from 86% to 10%)
Playing music on YouTube lasted about 2hours and 40 mins when unplugged.
-low ram. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting a old cheap 8gb stick of ram and swap the 4gb. You'll have 12gb of ram, which is enough to play games like valorant and surf the web with an extra monitor. Since this is an Intel chip, ram speed shouldn't matter much.
Overall Review: It took me awhile to appreciate this laptop. I was about to return it because of the battery life and low ram but I will keep it now since those are easy to upgrade :D. I use this laptop for my school and home. This laptop needs to always be plugged in. Due to the high resolution oled screen, lit keyboard, mx350 gpu, and i7 processor, it uses a lot of battery. Quite frankly, it comes with a measly 46watts-hour battery. I wish there was a way to upgrade the battery pack or get a extended battery supply for this model. (I'm sure there is) It can play league of legends and valorant on max settings in performance mode. I was surprised that it was able to run it. While in balance mode it is a little choppy when running those game.
When I user bench marked this laptop it came to be as follow:
Gaming : 25 % iris xe graphics
Desktop: 97 % i71165g7
To be honest the Gaming should be at least 45% as this laptop has two gpu that works together. When testing the mx350 gpu it was at 20%.
If you see this laptop on sale again, I would definitely grab it. I got it for $750.00 us dollars. Also I'm sure a lot of people are returning this because of the battery life and ram (easy fix). Once again If you see this on sale I would grab it. The mx350 combo with iris xe graphics is amazing. It keeps the laptop thin, and you wont have heat issue 3050, 3060, 3070, 3080 will generate.
Once again newegg should hire me.
Overall this laptop is for those who have a gaming desktop already and is looking for something powerful and can handle minimal gaming (mainly export games).
Pros: SSD drive is nice. This laptop is much smaller than my last one and easier to move around. The screen is very sharp and clear. I mostly just use it for browsing the internet but I did install steam and a few games and it plays them fine. Back lit keyboard and fingerprint reader are nice additions.
Cons: My cons are just windows related. It keeps trying to push me to windows 11.
Overall Review: Great laptop for something that feels like much more quality than the cheaper ones but still a much better price than the high end laptops.
Pros: Fast and light. This computer has one of the newest processors and lots of memory. The solid state storage helps make it very fast.
Cons: McAfee antivirus is unnecessary and slows things down.
Overall Review: I'm happy with this computer. It is fast and light and has the power to do whatever I need it to do. I would recommend this to anyone that could afford it.
Pros: Light .. delicate .. nicely done .. fast and adorable
Cons: The Finger print unlock sometimes not working then i use pin to unlock ASUS labtop

Pros: Customer Service in Georgia (Thanks Pamela!) did a great job of answering the few questions that I had. The Asus laptop arrived at scheduled delivery time, Once powered up, it delivered on the specs. It has a very fast SSD and the display is color accurate, vivid and viewable from a wide angle. The Nvidia graphics card makes a huge difference! As a music writer, this laptop will really help me using my DAW software. New Egg delivered a great purchase experience!
Cons: I am still trying to determine if I can download Windows Pro 11 as promised. Currently I am taken to an MS screen online that says "We are still working on determining if you can run Windows Pro 11.
I really do hope that I am able to install Windows 11 Pro as promised as it was a determining factor in the purchase.
Overall Review: I would recommend this product!
Yes. I would buy this again.
