Overall Review: Overall good computer, suitable for my needs as a student. I perform coding and multitasking a lot. Perfect for light gaming with major focus on productivity. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a productivity laptop with minimum gaming on the side. However, this is NOT a gaming laptop. If you are aiming to use a laptop for gaming, I recommend checking out gaming laptops.
Pros: Very quick to setup and use.
Barely any bloatware!
Excellent battery life and lightweight to boot!
This was a great upgrade from an old Mac ProAir
Overall Review: Absolutely would recommend for those that need something for daily use and not for the latest games
Overall Review: It is just the best you can get for price, performance and comfort (slimness). I recommended is an excellent machine.
Pros: Im not a tech guy so I dont know speeds and ratings and such. All I know is that Im very pleased with this laptop. I had a Lenova for 6 years. It was a disappointment and molasses slow from day 1.
This Asus Zen Book is fast. 10 seconds after it is turned on its up and running and ready to go!
I only use it for surfing the web and holding my music. Very pleased indeed!
Overall Review: I definitely recommend this!
Pros: - High performance CPU / GPU
- Good keyboard and trackpad
- The number pad can be turned off
Cons: - Comes with a large 100W power brick
- Good battery life requires user intervention
- USB-C ports are only on one side of the laptop
Overall Review: Based on the product photos I was worried that the trackpad / number pad combination would be visible all the time, that is not the case. It is off by default and completely invisible. As other reviewers have mentioned the battery life is mixed. I would describe it as "user configurable". When running in high performance mode it can draw a lot of power and generate a lot of heat, which is nice when you're using it as a plugged in workstation. For travel definitely put it in low power mode to maintain good battery life, the performance is still very good. Linux support is great, GPU and WiFi worked with a vanilla install of Fedora 35.
The 100W power brick that comes in the box is fairly large. I wanted to buy a smaller 65W GaN charger for travel but I don't trust that it will provide enough power and there aren't any clear requirements in the manual that I could find. It would be really nice if it had USB-C ports on both sides of the laptop rather than just the left side.
Pros: This little laptop is a beast. I mainly use it for work while traveling and it's been amazing.
I especially appreciate the number pad on the track pad? It's fast and works amazing. I do a lot of number entry and that thing is a life saver. The screen is very bright and crisp.
Even on battery saver power metering the processor crushes any tasks I can throw at it.
All in a super lightweight package.
Cons: Attracts fingerprints.
Overall Review: Awesome laptop at a great price. 5800h is a beast.
Pros: After reading that the minimum RAM you should get for a laptop is 16GB I spent a little more and got the Asus Zenbook because it had the extra RAM, a fast 8 core processor, and 1 TB of storage. The purchase price was a little more than I wanted to pay but glad I did cause I'm very happy with the performance
Cons: Almost no cons except if I designed this laptop I would have added one more USB A input
Overall Review: Totally recommend this laptop to anyone. It has the performance and features of a $2K plus laptop at less than $1,000
Pros: Excellent specs, well built implementation
I liked that Windows 10 allows you to restart the customization of your laptop
Love that USB-C power source. Finally the industry has moved to standardized power sources for all kinds of devices!
Love the headphone jack and normal HDMI ports. Also, the Ethernet dongle is very useful. Thanks for including these essential ports!
Quick shipping from NewEgg.
Cons: We have already suffered a weird issue where the laptop stopped responding and displayed a blinking power button. However, a quick internet search showed the solution: hold down the power button to reset the machine. Not what the source of this problem is.
Otherwise it has performed flawlessly.
Overall Review: highly recommended
