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.
