This piece of machinery is fantastic. It's elegant, versatile, responsive, and with the 8th gen i7, 16 GB RAM, and 512 SSD, fast as heck. It contains more than what the average user requires and with the integrated GPU and plenty of RAM, it's also capable of playing games. The only downsides of this computer is the fact that the webcam is laughable for the quality of laptop it's on, the fan has its moments of being overly loud and its prone to heating up even on a flat desk, and the biggest downside to this computer is the battery capability (which is understandable considering the super thin design of the laptop). Overall, this laptop is great, especially for the discount price that BestBuy usually has it on. When comparing the specs to other premium laptops, considering the sale price, it is worth every buck. WOULD RECOMMEND
If you are looking for a fast laptop, this one does the job. Includes pen in box which is nice when compared to its competition. The built in graphics does a solid job of running adobe suite of applications. I can do moderate gaming such as CIV 6, Age of empire II, half life 2, and Overwatch however at low capped at 30fps. The pen does not stick to the laptop by any means which is disappointing. Also suffers from the dongle madness needed to connect peripherals to the laptop.
The Laptop works great but the only down side is that this PREMIUM laptop does NOT come with the black sleeve. The Actual ASUS site one comes with one. Why does the bestbuy version not?
This machine is pretty nice, the touch screen is responsive, keyboard is nice to type on.
The screen does not seem as bright as my previous laptop it is also not as snappy and has some lag compared to a tablet.
I had some issues with the touchpad after upgrading to windows 10, about 1.5cm on either side of the pad was unresponsive, multi touch would not work, the touchpad would not register when I was touching it with one finger and it would randomly click as though I were tapping the left mouse button. It was quite annoying and reinstalling drivers would not work. In the end I had to reset it to factory settings completely. The touchpad now seems fine for the time being.
Aside from those issues the laptop is nice, it is thin (there is some flex to the screen), the stylus works, it's not too heavy. It is slightly smaller than a macbook air. When I was looking for cases and sleeves the 13 inch laptop case was slightly too large. I would definitely recommend getting an envelope style sleeve or similar for it as it's so thin.
There are 2 usb c's, the lap top does come with a toggle which allows 1 regular usb, 1 hdmi and 1 micro usb to connect. The toggle is plastic, not as nice as the rest of the laptop, would of bee nice if it matched the machine or was encased in metal.
Nothing is super spectacular about this laptop, it is by no means blowing my mind, especially at that price point and with the appalling quality of the webcam (similar to a mid 2000s flip phone in quality).
Overall, it is exceptionally fast and a pleasure to use. The design is super thin and beautiful, and all of the functions work well - keyboard, included pen, touch screen, usb-c adapter, etc.
However, there are a few issues worth nothing: 1) it runs hot, especially under load. The fan will turn on frequently (not actually that annoying), but it will still remain hot to the touch and is less a 'laptop' than a 'portable desktop'. 2) the webcam is laughably horrible. ~480 pixels. Why Asus? Even the chromebook has a better webcam..., 3) the steel exterior is well built, but does have too much play to feel durable in the long term. you can hear creaks when you pick it up / press down with even remote force on middle areas (like the bottom side of the touchpad). 4) bluetooth randomly stopped working completely and is undiscoverable. I am a windows CPU wizard, and even I can't fix it. Will return later today. 5) as per virtually all new laptops using the 8th gen i've tested, there is very slight audible coil whine. This is WAY less than other laptops though and SERIOUSLY barely noticeable.
Otherwise, if these issues weren't prominent and were fixed with slight tweaking, this would seriously be the best laptop out there.
