Asus Zenbook UX434FL i7-8565U 16GB 1TB SSD $1679.20 + $15 Delivery ($0 with eBay Plus) @ Computer Alliance eBay

250
PCASAVE

This is the new model with ScreenPad 2.0. Specs look great for the price and has 1TB SSD, Windows 10 Pro etc. No Thunderbolt 3 though if thats important to you.

I figure its a few hundred more than this deal was for the UX433FN but you get i7, more RAM, MX250, 1TB SSD and the new screenpad 2.0 which seems a good jump up.

    I do wish it ditched the gimmick screen and was a bit cheaper

    Still a good deal.

    •  

      I own one and like the screen. It's a small laptop, but with a big screen.

      •  

        Does it stay cool and quiet under moderate workloads?

          I got 'ASUS UX433FN I7-8565U, 14"FHD, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, MX150, W10P x 1' for $1808 from MegaBuy.com.au in March. This seems like a better deal, but I was in a rush in March.

          I didn't have any issues with it yet. It feels normally cool and quiet to me. Most noticeable is the light weight, big screen, and how the computer lifts up when the monitor rotates/opens.

          It's my secondary computer for traveling. The other one is a big heavy notebook with powerful GPU (SabrePro 15).

            @HeavenlyHammocks: i also got that model (433fn) around April, ended up around the same price as this one. Based on specs this is a better deal, esp as you get the mx250 instead of the 150 and 2x storage.
            mine is great as a netbook. the only taxing thing it does is run captureone for photo processing

    IS the ram really only DDR3? I thought DDR4 was used for the past 10 years…

      Yes. There's little real world performance difference in mild laptops like this, and it gives more battery life (LP = low power )

  •  

    Can you charge this via Type C port?

    • +1 vote

      I have the big beefy brother of this unit (Core i9) No you cant.

      Also, I'm finding that the battery lasts less time than it takes to charge it, its also got a very noisy fan.

      The screen in a touchpad thing is cute for about an hour then useless after that and on occasion just annoying.

        For endurance computing, set max processing state to 99% or turn off turbo. Saves a tonne of battery with only a slight hit to processing speed.

    Complaints mostly focus on the screenpad being a gimmick and draining battery.

    •  

      can the screen be turned off and used as a normal touchpad?

      The small screen actually has a higher resolution than the main screen.

    $2000 for an asus laptop? Nothing against the brand, they are one of the best, but the prices are becoming ridiculous. I have an Asus i3 VivoBook from 2012 all metal construction, touch screen, HDMI, USB3, which cost me $300 and it's still serving me very well thank you, and if I wanted a new laptop, For this price I can get myself a nice MacBook Pro

    Do not give your money to these BS artists such as CA

      You realise the vivobook and the zenbook are completely different categories of laptops right?
      i3 vs i7 etc

  •  

    Those are impressive specs for the form factor. Does this thing throttle or get loud?
