    I am going to note here that despite being a 10th generation i5, i5-10210U belongs more in 8th or 9th generation:
    - 14nm process (not 10 or 7) just like gen8 or even gen7
    - 24 EU graphics (G1 graphics of true 10th gen have 32 EU)
    - no DDR4-3200 support

    the true gen10 i5 is i5-1035G1 (or G4 or G7)

    •  

      If you look at the review, there is no real benefit to upgrade to gen 10.
      The performance increase is negligible, even slightly worst in multi-core performance.
      All Intel did was basically boost the clock speed.

        what I am saying is that if you are on the market right now, keep in mind that not all 10th gen Intel CPUs are equal, and give preference to true 10th generation CPUs like i5-1035G1 (G4, G7) to enjoy better lithography process and other enhancements (faster memory support, better graphics)

        and to answer to what you are saying here, benefit or no benefit depends on what you are upgrading from, and which CPU model you're upgrading to because it all depends you know 🤔

        Your comments are accurate for 10th gen desktop.

        If you look at the handful of 10nm mobile CPU (the real 10th gen) has higher IPC and lower power consumption. It is objectively a better CPU, especially on a mobile platform.

        AstroCadaver is doing a service to the community to look for 10nm chips

        AMD 3000 series mobile is also an old architecture, and does not compare to 3000 series desktop, the only new cpu is the one model with a 10nm intel cpu. The entire market is a mess

          In this market, good luck finding Gx laptop, especially in ultrabooks.
          I'm not saying AstroCadaver is wrong, but if you compare intel 8th gen "real performance" to 10th gen, you would only get a performance increase by 10ish % max.
          Compare it to AMD which gain "real" performance increase 2-3x jumping from 3xxx to 4xxx.
          We need competition to force Intel to move to "real" next gen CPU.

          Cinebech R20
          i7 8gen = 2453
          i7 10gen = 2553

          amd 3750h = 1600
          amd 4h00h = 3241
          amd 4800h = 4194

    These are really nice Ultrabooks and ridiculously compact. The chassis is 1-2 millimetres larger in width and height than an XPS 13 and weighs even less, despite having a 14" screen. The build quality and finish is up there with the other leading OEMs.

    What are peoples thoughts on the Asus ZenBook 14 UM433DA 14" 1080p Ryzen 3700U 8GB 512GB SSD? Partner purchased it but found that it wasn't suited for her so selling it for $1k brand new. Better to keep it than sell at this price?

    Not familiar with intel vs ryzen

    The USB-C port on these Zenbooks still don't support DisplayPort out or charging, which is boggling to me. Otherwise they look quite nice.

      ^- This - I'd absolutely buy these if they had TB3, or would seriously consider if like you said, they at least have DP and PD over USB-C.

      It is simply unbelievable that they don't. Stupid even. Asus are really dropping the ball. Makes these things useless with proper USB-C docks.

      So sticking with HP Envy's for now for me….sadly….

      Really! The last model was the same and stopped me, so this newer still doesn’t support USB charging.?

    Do you think there would be better deals in June during eofy or its all price Jack at that time? I am looking for a laptop for casual gaming too so was considering asus tuf but my maximum budget is 1500 aud

    Performance as per cpubenchmark score

    i5-10210U @ 1.60GHz. 6,427

    AMD Ryzen 7 3700U. 7,382

    i5-8265U @ 1.60GHz. 6,319

    i7-10510U @ 1.80GHz. 7,361

    i9-9880H @ 2.30GHz. 14,077
    (Found in the $3999 Macbook)

    AMD Ryzen 5 3600. 17,789
    (A $300 desktop CPU )

    Essentially all the laptops in this deal are about the same, the ryzen 7 is the best deal

    Just some spec and value comparison here:

    Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 15"
    Ryzen 5 4500U (Zen 2, 6 core, 6 threads, comparable performance to 45W Intel i7)
    Integrated graphics on par, if not better, than the 10W variants of the entry level discrete graphics (E.g. mx150)
    8GB
    256 NVMe
    Full HD display
    Available for order now and ships in 15 business days, for $1199

    This ASUS Zenbook's price is okay if you actually want the particular design, but not great value for the spec.

    Are these any good for gaming?

    •  

      Absolutely not.

      Even though this Zenbook model has a discrete GPU, the MX 150 is barely a notch above an IGP and worthless for playing Triple-A games at 1920x1080 (see benchmarks here; it manages an average FPS of 25 or less for most games at 1920x1080).

      The other models that only feature IGPs would be even worse.

    •  

      They aren't really intended for gaming (Asus has the ROG Strix/TUF series for those) but my Zenbook can play LoL/World of Warcraft/Overwatch.

  •  

    How does it compare to an xps 13 2019 model. Less storage in the xps and only 300 more on the dell website.

  •  

    I was having a look at one of these as I like the brushed aluminium construction.
    Unfortunately I was disappointed to learn that the Zenbook uses a plastic inner frame. It's a completely different construction to the unibody macbooks and much less sturdy.

    You can see in the teardown video below:

    I have the previous 2018 model with the same spec as this one:
    Asus ZenBook 14 UX433FN 14" FHD i5-8265U 8GB 512GB SSD MX150 Laptop
    It was good for a good 2 year but recently the battery is running out fast and it has been consuming battery even though I shut it down. Does anyone know if this is due to a glitch/software issue?

    •  

      I have a 2012 Zenbook UX31A which has never skipped a beat (replaced thermals at Asus service centre 2 years ago for $88) and the battery life is still good. I KNOW RIGHT?

      It is FULLY metal unlike now and obviously better built with better batteries (how is this possible?) then they do now.

      It's such a shame as I have the highest regard for the devices after my initial purchase of the UX31A
