Pros: - Lightweight and compact. - Lightning fast boot up and shut down. - Responsive. - Great battery life. I am in love with my ZenBook 3. I have had it for 2 weeks now, and have nothing to complain about thus far. It is everything I wanted in a laptop for school. As a university student, I need something light and small to carry around campus, but still powerful and responsive. This PC fits the bill. At first I was unsure about the screen size, as my desktop has a 24 inch monitor and my previous laptop had a 15 inch screen; however, I have had no trouble adjusting. In fact, I am even using it at home for all school applications and have reserved my desktop for gaming. I have no issues with the battery life on the ZenBook 3. I generally use it on Battery Saver mode to maximize the longevity and find I am easily getting 9+ hours of use. The trackpad is ultra smooth and very sensitive. If you choose to use a mouse, as I do much of the time, you might want to disable the trackpad with mouse use.
Cons: - Must use the included dongle for USB and HDMI connectivity, or purchase a hub. I have listed this as a con, only because I know it might be an issue for some people. I like to use a mouse with my ZenBook, but I am not at all inconvenienced by using the included dongle or the hub I purchased for additional connectivity.
Overall Review: - I highly recommend this product to those who are looking for portability without compromising performance. - If I had it to do over, I would absolutely purchase the ZenBook 3 again.
