- A pretty decent laptop- November 21, 2021
I've had this laptop for a couple of days so far, and it's pretty good! I can play some games on it, but on low quality but still works pretty well. It works pretty fast as too. I also like how you can use your own fingerprint to sign in which is really neat. It has a decent amount of storage and does all the things that I want it to do. I would recomend this laptop for people who use it daily use such as for school, or work in general, or if you just like to use it for surfing the web or just watch videos on it. I wouldn't use it for gaming if you are someone who cares about quality. Battery life is good too, but not perfect.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Review after using it for a day and a half- November 5, 2021
I have been using this laptop for around a day and a half and wanted to write a thorough review since often these laptops don't get reviewed. I work from home so I will be using this laptop everyday, but here are my initial experiences. Battery life on average day of work (On day 1), working in VM with one 20 minute video call on "better battery" mode - 100% - 30% (2 hours and 30 minutes) - estimated additional 1 hour and 21 minutes until battery dies, so I estimate around 3.5 hours of battery on the better battery mode. However, not everyone will be working in a VM outside of regular browsing which will be better for the battery. Also longer meetings will kill the battery quicker. The good: - Display is very nice. 300 nits and Iris xe with slim bezels make it very pleasant to use the laptop. When comparing to my older laptop from 2016 there is a noticeable difference. - As someone picky with my laptop keyboards and touchpad (I do not used external mouse or monitor while working from home) this by far has the most pleasant keyboard and touchpad out of all the laptops I tried. Keys are mechanical and larger, making typing easy. It is listed as bilingual, but keyboard layout is the same with a few extra symbols on some keys that don't make a difference. Also the touchpad is a good size with a great feel, sensitivity, and pressure required to click down. - Build quality feels great with a lightweight design, but also a material that doesn't feel like it'll break after falling a couple inches or after a year of use. Compared to other laptops in this price range this is much better. - Sound system is great and you will not need to watch videos or be in meeting on full volume as it is too loud. - Fan is very quiet if anyone had concerns about that - Backlit keyboard is not too bright or too dim. The average: - The camera and microphone while nice are not anything outstanding. However, it is hard to find a laptop that will be great in these categories. They will be adequate for video calls. - Battery while smaller than most laptops isn't terrible. This was my biggest concern, but considering I will be working from home and not bring my laptop outside my place much, it will do. Battery degradation is a concern, but I cannot comment on that. People who will be using this for over 2 hours without a charger may not like this laptop. The bad: - I actually had to soft factory reset my laptop on day 1. Not sure why, but my internet on my work VM kept dropping for 10-15 second every 20 minutes or so. Also, I was randomly experiencing slowdown which should not happen as my old, much worse laptop could handle those processes. After a soft reset (took about 20 minutes), the laptop has been performing great, but I will give it a week to see if performance decreases again. If so I will likely return for another model or different laptop. Note: that the laptop after a soft reset is actually slightly different from what I received out of box, so I wonder if maybe there was something initially installed that I resolved after a reset. Value: In my opinion this feels more like an $800 laptop, but an extra $100 isn't a big deal. Every laptop feels overpriced these days. For the price range though I don't think you will be getting much more from a different laptop as every laptop you are compromising something, for this laptop it is likely a 1-1.5 hour shorter battery life which may be worth it for the form factor.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

- Touch pad broke after 13 month. and out of warrant- December 2, 2021
Purchased this computer 13 months ago, and touch pad stopped working. Called the support, and they said it's out of the warranty. Nothing they could do. I guess if you always bring a mouse with you , or a great computer guy knows how to work without a track pad. it's good for you. I thought Asus was good enough, but I was wrong.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
