I bought a similar model last year (all the same specs except for the i5-7200U processor) and am delighted with its performance, build quality and portability. I primarily use it for travelling and teaching, but recently hooked it up to my office monitor and keyboard and found it handled all the usual tasks splendidly, including most Creative Cloud applications. (I don't work with video.)
The only serious problem I have with this is the bilingual keyboard. Before I bought it, I scoffed at those who complained about the keyboard, figuring that it wouldn't be all that difficult to adjust to a few extra keys. It turns out that despite using this for months, I still make lots of frustrating typing errors. I finally bought a tiny wireless keyboard that will travel with me from now on.
So if you like the specs on this one, make sure that you're OK with a bilingual keyboard, or plan ahead to get a second keyboard that works for you.
Good overall laptop but the only down side is the loud fans while doing nothing and the slight coil whine...
After endless hours of research looking for a laptop, I came to the conclusion of purchasing this one. However, I was extremely disappointed. First of, the build quality is not what I expected for the price of what I paid. Even though it looks to be full aluminum, the area around the screen is plastic and the keyboard feels very cheap and brings an uncomfortable typing experience. Second, the fans are unbearably loud and turn on for the simplest tasks. Even for items such as just surfing the web they while turn on creating a rather loud noise. When handling larger tasks, the fans become extremely loud and the laptop heats up extensively. The laptops fans turn on and the laptop heats up when charging even when the units of. The graphics card is also not impressive in the slightest. Even though it is dedicated and expected to bring great performance, for the price you're paying it severely under performs. Finally, the battery life is less than half of what's advertised. I will get about 2 hours on tasks such as surfing the web. In conclusion, this laptop does not perform as expected for the price I paid and has many problems which Asus should resolve.
Overall this laptop is great. The few issues I have with it are easily to get used to or are very minimal. First of all, the keyboard is BILINGUAL which is not shown in the product image. The strange layout of the enter and rshift key can be gotten used to, but its worth knowing before you buy. There is also audible coil whine, but you'd never notice if there's any other noise in the room. This laptop performs extremely well. I can reach 60fps easily at 1080p on overwatch. The MX150 GPU is more than capable of handling most games on medium-low settings. The one other potential issue is that this laptop can get hot quickly, which means that the fans turn on often and can be loud (however this can be fixed with software so that the fans only turn on when absolutely necessary). Overall this is a great laptop.
I bought this notebook 4 months ago. From the moment I lifted it out of the box, I knew I'd be disappointed if I had to return it. It's light, thin and quiet. The only time I heard the fan kick into high gear was when I did my initial software install, data transfer and OS updates. Haven't heard it since. I found it hard to believe ASUS manged to put 8hrs of battery life into such a small package, but they did. The SSD is fast. My antivirus software completes a full scan (over 600k files) in under 10 minutes. I love the back lit keyboard. The matte screen controls glare. Harmon Kardon sound is amazing. The fingerprint reader has been flawless. I also appreciate the night light option in the OS. Incredible.
Pros: powerful specs. I can't think of another laptop where you can get the same specs as this one for 1400 CAD (at least not with the same stylish/lightweight and thin build). Imagine a mac with these specs, it would easily run for over 3k. Also has great battery life and very solid speakers. It is lightweight and portable which also makes it great for students and professionals who value portability without compromising performance. Can handle light gaming with ease, it can play overwatch at 1080p on medium settings without a sweat.
Cons: fan can get quite noisy under load. computer gets hot while under load too.
Overall, this laptop is a powerful, yet stylish and lightweight ultrabook!
When it arrived I discovered it had the useless (for me who learned to type on English keyboards) bilingual keyboard and it's shifted around keys.
I did try and use it for a while, but I just can't get used to the changed layout. Too bad. If Best Buy would only offer an English (or US style) keyboard as an option, I'd buy it.
One other slight flaw. I think Asus made a mistake moving to the quad core CPU. It has a lower base clock so it seems sluggish at times compared to the 7500 it originally came with, and it also runs quite a bit hotter. The fans run louder because of the extra heat they need to dissipate.
The specs make this laptop appear to be an amazing deal but in order to keep the price down Asus had to cut corners. The screen has a seriously bad PWM flicker which can cause eye strain and headaches. Due to the slimness of the laptop it's not the greatest at heat dissipation. In order to keep the temperature within thermal limits, the cpu fan ramps up frequently and loudly; there is also quite a bit of cpu throttling. Battery life is ok but not great. Build quality is not bad but not great for the price.
If you're looking for portability, excellent build quality and battery life, there are better options available in this price range.
If performance is primarily what your after, then a gaming laptop will offer better specifications and cooling in this price range; the screen will suck but you can always output to a desktop monitor since that's probably how it will be connected anyway.
If you want the best of both worlds, performance and portability plus a high quality screen, you are going to have to step up in price; See Asus Zenbook Pro or MacBook Pro if OSX is your thing.
I bought the laptop during Black Friday because this laptop hit all my criteria, 14"s making it small and compact, but with such great specs. Unfortunately, I had to return it soon after. I will list the pros and cons of the laptop below:
Great specs for the price, new i5 8250U, MX150, 512 SSD, and 16GB of RAM
Good body and build
Had a pinging noise/coil whine
The screen has PWM which can cause eye strain/fatigue
From what I know the older ZenBooks of this model had a much better screen that didn't use a screen with PWM. This is such a bad change, especially since this is the newer model. If it weren't for these issues, this laptop would have been the absolute perfect school laptop that could handle light gaming.
Pro: Powerful CPU; dedicated video card means you can play games (Titanfall 2, Overwatch, etc...) on this laptop with ease. Sound quality is really quite impressive. The screen is clear and sharp. The keyboard is responsive and so is the trackpad. Great battery life
Con: Gets really hot, especially while playing games. Fan gets really loud under load. Fingerprint sensor is pretty much worthless if your hands are cold and dry.
I'd recommend this laptop for anyone who wants portability and the ability to play a little bit of games while on the go. The dedicated video card (MX150) is surprisingly capable. The best feature of this laptop has to be the built in speakers.
