Rattling keyboard distracts from music experience 5/26/2020 1:41:42 PM

Pros: - The display is fantastic with excellent contrast and the high color gamut really shows.
- Fingerprint sensor
- Fans are very quiet when not using the MX250
- CPU is fast

Cons: - Keyboard keys rattle between 1000Hz-5000Hz at volumes past 10 (that's 10 out of 100).
- Battery life could be better. Gets around 3 hours for music creation, 1.5 hours for photo editing, and 1 hour of gaming.
- Trackpad is unsatisfying.
- Keyboard keys can be hard to read.

Overall Review: The rattling keyboard is a bit of a bummer. I'm guessing this has something to do with the speakers being on top. As for the sound, turning off realteks audio enhancements adds clarity to mids while making things louder (lessening, though not eliminating keyboard rattling). Personally I find the sound not very good either way. As for the battery, I was hoping for better. The most I've gotten is around 4 hours using apps that don't need the graphics card. As for the trackpad, I use a logitech mx ergo trackball and I'd also recommend logitech's m570, as they don't need a lot of space or a mouse pad to use. Some positives are that this computer starts up fast... like really fast and logging in with the finger print sensor is just amazing. The cpu is also really fast and works well depending on power settings. Overall besides battery life and rattling keys, this is a very nice computer.

Beautiful in terms of aesthetics, *and* performance 5/21/2020 1:05:34 AM

Pros: - Aesthetically beautiful
- Superb performance with the Core i7
- Excellent IPS screen with barely-there bezel
- Fast 512gb NVMe SSD
- Great balance of portability and functionality
- Minimal bloatware installed

Cons: - No possibility of upgrading RAM, so the 8gb installed is the max for the lifetime of the laptop. Hopefully this isn't a trend that continues for long.

- Sound isn't the best, but adequate for a compact laptop, so not really a con.

Overall Review: This is a deceptively fast laptop, given it's compact nature, and effortless portability. On a typical day, I have upwards of 25-30 tabs open in Chrome while typing up an extensive Word document, listening to music. The Zenbook never broke a sweat - no lag, no stuttering, no delays. The 512gb NVMe drive is the perfect size for everyday use, and it is a very fast drive indeed.

On the gaming side, it is a different story. The MX250 is a lower end GPU, and when coupled with only 8gb RAM, there are limitations for gaming. Most higher-end games struggle to achieve an acceptable framerate rendering most of them unplayable. That's not to say gaming isn't possible - some newer games are playable, though on low graphical settings. This handles somewhat older titles very well, in general, though!

Aesthetically this thing is GORGEOUS. Very sleek, and well-built, every inch of it feels like quality. The IPS screen is beautiful and is well-complemented by the razor thin bezel. The size of the laptop is somewhat deceptive too, as (for me at least) it appears smaller than it feels while using it. Being my new "daily driver", it goes where I go, and it is a real breeze to carry.

The only real knock is the lack of a RAM slot for upgrades, and it is a big one in my mind. Who does that?? All in all, I love the Zenbook, and will continue to use it as my main computer.

Good build quality, attractive machine 5/12/2020 4:30:31 PM

Pros: I like this computer more than I expected -- it's stylish, fairly lightweight, and physically well designed. It looks very nice, and is a pleasure to type on and use. And I had no trouble installing Ubuntu on it in parallel with Windows, if that's your kind of thing.

Cons: The only drawbacks I've discovered: keyboard is not backlit; and one of the speakers is underneath the front lip, so if you place it on your lap, sound may be muffled.

Be aware that the RAM is not expandable from the shipped 8GB, so make sure that's enough for you before you buy. (For that reason, and because it gets very hot under high CPU load, it's not an ideal machine for gaming, but light gaming on moderate graphics settings is OK. That makes it a decent compromise who need a work-ready laptop that can also handle some recreational gaming.)

Overall Review: I'd buy this again. It's a fair price for a well-built machine.

i7-10th gen 5/2/2020 12:07:03 PM

Pros: Very pleased with this laptop.....the graphics and color is crisp, clean and a pleasure for videos, movies, games. Fast responses, and very nice sound....keyboard is also quiet and instantly responsive...included mouse lightning fast as well. Spent two weeks looking at specs and chose this model. No disappointment here. Will be great for photo editing and home business needs. Have owned only Dell in the past and made the jump to Asus zenBook....better machine on this level hands down. New egg was fast and had it in two days...

Cons: none, has not disappointed in any function so far.

Overall Review: I would recommend this set up and model to friends.

Pros: Fingerprint sensor - Lightning fast. Much faster than face unlock

Overall Review: - Would strongly recommend this product for average everyday usage
- Would moderately recommend for gaming, but don't expect a professional experience

Works Great - Looks Great - Professional Grade - Would Recommend 12/10/2019 4:31:43 PM

Pros: Fast boot-up
Solid state drive is fantastic. No annoying spin-up sounds.
Bevel of the keyboard is outstanding as is keyboard back-lighting.
Speakers deliver really nice sound for a laptop.
Very responsive keyboard for a laptop - I'm a quick touch typist and I like the "action" of the keyboard very much as well as the distance between keys.
Very crisp screen that cuts down on eye fatigue compared to my earlier [comparable ASUS] laptop
Attractive metal body
Light weight
Overall size of the unit is great. Small enough to work directly on your lap or a lap desk in a chair but the screen is so easy-to-view that it seems bigger than it actually is.
Screen view-ability angle is great.
Stays cool - doesn't heat up much at all with prolonged use.
I use this as my primary professional computer, replacing a desktop and an older laptop.
Comfortable to use with a lap desk or on a table surface.

Cons: Although the keyboard is nicely back lit, the characters are orange on silver keys which are not as easy to see as my previous ASUS which has back lit white characters on black keys.
Top right power button can be tricky. It's REALLY easy to hit the Power button when going for the Delete or Backspace keys. Luckily, the unit resumes very quickly at the same point so it's mildly annoying instead of a deal breaker.
I had trouble getting the fingerprint sensor to respond and had to do it multiple times then update the drivers.
Battery life is not as great as one would like. Battery drains fairly quickly with normal "office use" and the unit cannot go an entire work day without it being plugged in.
Must turn it off each time [not just close the lid] or it seems to drain completely overnight or after a few hours even after fooling with power settings.
But these things are minor compared with its pluses.

Overall Review: I would recommend this laptop for its speed, looks, functionality, keyboard responsiveness and weight.
I can't comment on the touch pad as I use an external turbo mouse 98% of the time.
This model is a bit pricey compared to others of its caliber but I think well worth the money, although time will tell how rugged it proves to be for a road warrior.
Our company purchased two of these at the same time and so far we have not been disappointed after using them in the office and on the road for a solid week and a half.

Very happy 11/30/2019 9:06:29 AM

Pros: - processor and RAM specs provide a good bang for the buck, enough power in this that I can run small jobs on it and test parameters before going to a larger cluster.
- I think the price point and the processing power compared to other computer makes this a fantastic option for those that want a laptop with a little punch without having to pay the high price for a 'gaming' laptop.

- lightweight and not painful to carry around
- good looking sturdy aluminum body, no cheap plastic
- fantastic speakers, very loud
- very nice screen with very crisp images
- I will list the keyboard as a plus since it has a decent amount of feedback compared to a lot of other thin laptops I tested before getting this one.
- the bevel changes that laptop angle, not a game-changer or something I would pay extra for but I do like it and I hope it helps cool it.

Cons: - no devoted graphics card, if you're an intense gamer you might have qualms with this but it doesn't bother me.
- The battery life is just OK, I partly attribute this windows 10 which I think is greedy with the resources. If you don't shut it off (and just close it) it will likely be almost dead next time you open it. BUT with the SSD it does boot up incredibly fast.

Overall Review: I have read a lot of reviews saying they're had bad experiences with the touchpad but I don't share that experience. I have had my UX431FA for half a year now and love it! I think it was a steal at the price I got it, and I would absolutely recommend it.

I wish I could speak to the longevity of the product, that would be my one concern, but only time will tell that. I bought this partly due to the fact that ASUS has a reputation for developing good pieces of hardware that provide some power and durability.
