Ratings and reviews

Rated 3 out of5 by fromGreat but not good enoughPros:*lightweight*very slim*powerful specs (intel i7, 16GB Ram, 512 GB SSD)*amazing non-glare screen*USB-C 3.1 Type1*affordable compared to other ultrabooks with the same specCons:*very weak screen hinge*constant loud fan noise even during non-demanding tasks (e.g: browsing facebook, youtube, etc)*iffy touchpadI bought this ultrabook just about last week and typing this review with it at the moment. I have to give Asus props for building a very beautiful ultrabook that's lightweight and ultra slim. The keyboard is very comfortable for typing and it reminds me to the macbook pro I used to own. The port selections are OK and will be enough for average users. Just keep in mind that the USB-C is Type 1 so it's NOT for Thunderbolt 3.Despite loving the style, slimness, and sturdy aluminum chassis, I will return this laptop for three reasons that are very major for me:1. The screen hinge in this laptop is very weak. During my one week using this laptop, I have to readjust the screen almost every time. It's not that bad and won't affect most people but if you like to move around and using your laptop on you lap, then you'll be annoyed by the hinge. If you go past the 120 degree, then the hinge will fall back on its own.2. The fan noise is on ~80% of the time. This is a big issue for me because it's quite audible. If you listen to music, make sure the volume is above 50% to mute the fan noise.3. Touchpad is kind of iffy. When it works, it works amazing and it will match macbook's touchpad. However, my unit's touchpad is guaranteed to stop working 4-5 times a day and it's very frustrating.TL;DR: great laptop with great specs with a great price; however, several issues may deter some people from buying this laptop. Buy this ultrabook if those three issues I posted are not major issues for you.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromPiece of junkDo not buy. Just an expensive piece of Junk. I bought the Zenbook a year and half a go. Didn't have any issues until recently when an update caused some issues with this particular brand of computers (look online for details). At start up the computer will not boot and is stuck in the bios. Took it to Microsoft store and they found that the scan disk ssd was malfunctioning and was not powering up. Result: a faulty ssd. It is really sad that a still newer computer has problems like this.Save your time and money and don't get this computer. Has problems with Windows 10 updates as well.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromWhat's with the bad reviews?So I'm a technology person, built my own PC's back in the early 90's, Yada, Yada. This Zen Book has been great. The price and features were a good overall value. One guy complained about the hinge in other reviews. I haven't had any issues with it. The screen is so clear and easy to read text. After 30 years of computer monitors, mostly CRT my eyes are way roached. This screen is a welcome fix to bad LCD monitors and major glare tablets and laptops. Yes the screen is matte so it has almost totally no glare. I see this laptop is sold out. I couldn't find this configuration in any other online outlet, or local store. I love it and hope to have a lasting relationship to my little Asus Zen Book Thanks Asus! Keep working on these ultra books, attention to detail is important.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromSolid Computer butThe USB Type-C port does not support DisplayPort signal. There are so few ports, I had a hard time coming up with something to plug my monitor into. If I wasn't using a monitor I would have loved it. I did miss the touch screen!
