I'm sure one can make a case for anything. For my case and people with similar needs, these are good values. Obviously it is not for you...

haha you got me it is. I work in finance and occasionally get complex cases requiring cross-referencing multiple sources so the multiple...

Only the Touch MB16AMT model has a touch screen.
07/03/2022 - 14:56
The ACV model only comes with 1 USB-C port which is for both power and data. You CANNOT power it separately if your laptop cannot deliver...

thanks for sharing, did you purchase from an Australian retailer and still have to deal with warranty department in USA?

You may need the one with both USB-C (for power delivery) and Micro-HDMI, which is the MB16AH ($429 and various retailers) or MB16AHP....

The only thing that stopped me from getting this laptop is the Resolution being too high in comparison to my 1080p portable monitors which...
07/03/2022 - 12:09
For what they are the ones you post are good value. However, for office work the 2k and 4k monitors, at 15 or 17 inch, do not add any...

I'm glad you asked I have been waiting for an opportunity to flex lol here it is sorry about the funny blue marks I redacted my business...
06/03/2022 - 23:32
It has only one USB-C for both Power Delivery and Data. So if you want to use it for console, you may need the one with both USB-C (for...

If you it has Thunderbolt it should work. Not sure if M1 has something similar and can work with this. Sorry I do not know much about Mac.
06/03/2022 - 22:19
I think the AOC i1659Fwux FHD version is a decent monitor for its price. However, it's a little bit more bulky. You can get them for $229...
06/03/2022 - 21:55
Damn. You can still get it at Umart for $359 + Delivery...
06/03/2022 - 21:30
ahh yes I did thanks for pointing that out. This one would be my choice from the Asus line up too if Micro HDMI is required. The MB16ACV...
06/03/2022 - 21:28
I agree with you too. This is not an issue for office stuff but for anything requiring colour accuracy, these monitors are terrible.

I mentioned that in my post. I think overall the Asus is more usable and the better monitor with a 15.6" screen. - Dell C1422H & Lenovo...

Hey Rayve which powered USB hub do you use? I've been looking into it too just in case the old XPS13 doesn't have 2 thunderbolts.
06/03/2022 - 17:42
With the intel Mac with thunderbolt I think it works. Not sure about the M1. Best way to find out is to bring your Mac to Officeworks and...

I've got some different laptops right now and the only thing that is comfortable outdoor I find is the 500nits XPS screen. However, I find...

06/03/2022 - 17:27
ahaha sorry my bad yes 30 nits only. The 100 increase is in the contrast ratio in comparison to some other models.
06/03/2022 - 17:24
Thanks for the upvote. The Amazon link is for the lower Spec model of the ZenScreen line up (It's really confusing at first) and I believe...
