14" is great
8565U + 16GB is great
Immediately after using this computer in the first hour I noticed the trackpad issue. The mouse will jump around and speed up, then freeze for a second, then move again. This repeats constantly and sometimes lasts minutes. If you were doing anything intensive with the mouse, you can forget being able to use this laptop. Games, drawing, even drag and drop are nearly impossible.
The computer came installed with Windows 10, sure, but also a TON of other software. I thought that was making this machine slow and I wanted to erase everything down to a simple windows 10 install with nothing more but had issues with the usb boot disk getting to boot from the bios. After wrestling with windows for 8 hours, I gave up on my dualboot intentions and just erased the whole thing and installed Antergos linux. The trackpad issue remains a problem and really gets in the way of my productivity.
After searching and reading more reviews specifically about trackpad performance, it seems that Asus laptops have this issue across all of their Zenbooks going back to 2011. The only fix I've seen suggested is to remove the casing and tape a piece of tinfoil between the battery and trackpad. I think I'd rather just return the laptop and get my $1,500 (included 4 year warranty).
There are plenty of other comparable machines at the $1,200 to $1,500 price point. I can get myself a MacBook Air for that price!
However, the trackpad has SERIOUS issues. The trackpad will lag at the worst times and make the cursor jump around like crazy. It works most of the time, but the lag will happen every 5-10 minutes. Get a wireless mouse and save yourself the trouble.
If you can deal with a buggy trackpad, this is the perfect laptop for you.
UPDATE: There is a fix below in the comments that helps make the trackpad work much better.
Also personal fixes I did that helped:
* Turned off anything to do with tapping (single, double, multi select taps off)
UPDATE 2 - I didn't update this for a while, however there is a firmware update released months ago for the trackpad and now there's no issues, so +1 star for me. Also, for Linux users - I run Ubuntu on this in dual boot and it works great. The numberpad doesn't work though and I doubt it will in the forseeable future.
I've always been a big Asus fan, so when these sleek, new, uniquely hued, machines came out just as I was seeking a replacement for my 6-year-old previous ZenBook, I jumped at the opportunity to buy one. SO very glad I did, because this is such a lovely device. I was a little skeptical of the color and new build, but it has certainly grown on me, and I get compliments frequently.
Perhaps the hardest thing to get used to, and maybe a con if you're a big accessories fan, is that with the tiny bezel around the screen, there's no need for much vertical length on the machine, so it's *much* more rectangular than the laptops you might be used to. This means that the sleeve that comes with this laptop is one of the few snug-fitting protective accessories you'll be able to find.
I haven't used this machine for much heavy-duty work yet, but I will update this review once I've downloaded and used Adobe Creative Suite on it, and report on its handling of some of these juggernaut programs. That being said, everything I *have* run has been great. The speeds to load are fantastic, and the loaded version of Windows does well on the machine.
Some of my favorite features:
The backlit keyboard with multiple brightness settings
The function-lock options (notably absent on past Asus models, which was annoying)
The light-up number pad (more a party trick than anything, but is actually pretty useful when I *do* need to take on some number crunching)
The battery life - WOW. Charges fully in about 1.5 hours, and I've gotten it to last up to NINE hours on that charge
The aesthetic - This machine is gorgeous, and nobody is going to deny that. The slim bezels, the overall thin profile, the blue and gold color... its just so dang pretty.
I was certainly disappointed with *how* jumpy the touchpad was at first, but with the simple fix and the excellent machine you're left with after, this is a great deal on a lovely machine.
PS: I haven't experienced the coil whine so many users here have talked about. I'm on the machine in a silent room now, for instance, and all I can hear is my own typing. *shrug*
So far I have spent:
- 30 min with an Amazon cust rep who ended up recommending that I buy a new charger
- 3 days wait to get the charger. Tried it. No power still.
- 2h with another Amazon cust rep who ended up liaising with ASUS US and concluded that I needed to contact ASUS France on the phone number she provided me
- 5 minutes today with an ASUS France customer rep, who were rather rude and unhelpful.
I am now returning the merchandise to Amazon who are pushing back. What a nightmare. I'll update my rating if the situation ends up being sorted out.

I've been on a Macbook Pro for the past 9 years and while I believe that there was no PC to compete back in 2010, things have changed a lot. I am not really a fan of the new Macs and find they are far too overpriced if you choose specs similar to the Asus Zenbook UX433FA-DH74, plus Mac seems to think you want to carry dongles around with you. My main desktops have always been custom built PC's to very high specs and this has allowed me to use OSX and Windows side by side all decade. I used to prefer OSX because of the superior stability but Windows should have caught up by now, at least you would think so. There will be plenty of debate and personal preference on the topic but I have also found myself move away from iPhone and on to Andriod because I prefer more customization. So, all that said, I did decide that I wanted my laptop to also be a Windows laptop and my search led me to the UX433FA-DH74 for specs and quality vs price. I could not find a Core i7-8565U, 16GB, 512GB SSD laptop with a metal design that came close to this one.
The reviews on various websites for this laptop seem to be quite good on average.
The main complaints anywhere you read are jumpy mousepad and noisy fans.
With the mousepad I have no problems so far, works fine for me. I do notice that if I press too hard and of inconsistent force, there is a tiny skip here and there. It may be a case of just learning your new mousepad and getting used to it. With a light touch, I see no skipping so far and am very happy with it. The number pad is a great idea and I have already found that useful.
As for the fans, I did hear them after setting up Windows for the first time and installing my programs, moving my files over etc. They did seem to go on for a while but after my standard check for BIOS updates at the manufacturer's website I did find one, installed it, and haven't heard the fans since. Very hard to say if that has anything to do with it or not because I didn't see much documentation about what the BIOS update addressed.
Some complain that it is no good for games, I think those people need to read the specs first. This is NOT a laptop with dedicated graphics, this is a laptop with Intel HD graphics, the UX433FA version. If you want there is an Nvidia MX150 2GB on the UX433FN model for light gaming and while I would have preferred that, I couldn't find it anywhere.
The only thing I don't like so far is the glossy screen, I have always had matte screens on my laptops so this is something I will have to get used to. So far it hasn't been too much of an issue in my office but I haven't taken it out and about in full daylight yet and I hope it doesn't bother me too much. If it does I will have to return it and wait for a matte version to appear.
Battery life seems good to me but I have no other new laptop to compare it to, my mac was giving me about 1 hour these days even after replacing the battery several times, so that is no comparison. I'm sure there are other ultrabooks that beat this one on battery life but anything over 5 hours is more than enough for me, this one has done that by a long shot already.
An amazing laptop for everything other than live audio, unfortunately this is a common Windows problem that they have not yet figured out. If you don't need to worry about live audio production then you will love this laptop. It is lightning fast, great looking, light, and my only problem at first was the glossy screen which I soon got used to. Chipset driver conflicts that you wouldn't normally notice cause latency spikes which means it is a no go for live audio. I really wanted to keep it so I tried for days to find a solution but was not successful. Looks like I am stuck with Apple for a while longer.
I watched a full season of Game of thrones (10episodes) on it with a full charged battery, and still had enough for 45 mins. It has different battery saving levels (battery saver- better battery-better performance- best peformance). I rate 10/10 for battery life.
The build quality is awesome and it feels super solid and crazy light. (lighter than all my textbooks).
keyboard feels good and solid as well as the mouse pad. I had no problem with it at all. The touch numbers on the mouse pad are working fine and the reason why some people are saying it is not good is, they are always in rush! you shouldn't press it hard and fast expecting it to function like your flagship smartphone!!
It comes with a bag which surprised me! covers your laptop from dirt or getting damaged.
Performance with adobe photoshop is flawless. It is so quite in class as well! absolutely in love. Thanks for the fast delivery.
Overall, It is the best laptop if you are a student looking for an affordable laptop to bring it to school, do your assignments and install some heavy apps.
Lets compare some rivals! Hp spectureX360 (heavy - battery killer), Huawei matebookx pro(Chinese spy- no customer service), Hp envy series with AMD system (terrible for games -heavy), Lenovo thinkpad ( expensive- simple design), Macbooks ( expensive- recent issue with keyboards), Dell XPS ( expensive).
However, I got a nightmare story with it. First one had a blown speaker on it, had to replace it.
2nd one got lost by the carrier.
Third one, like every other I think, has a major issue with the track pad.
If travelling with it, you'll want to bring your wireless mouse.
Trackpad skips a lot, as worse as if it was broken.
Otherwise, a perfect computer for 1 500$ CAD in December 2018.
Other than the slight annoyance that the track pad gives, it's a very solid laptop, great performance. SSD is really fast and 16gb of RAM performs as you'd expect, snappy, and easy to multitask with this machine. Fan will come on when doing more heavy tasks, but that is to be expected of the U series intel CPUs. The screen-to-body ratio is a really nice touch and makes other laptops without it look so dated. Thumbs up from me.
- laptop is fast and was easy to set up. Updating drivers for the trackpad and customizing gestures solved any lag issues I noticed. Very happy with the core i7 processor and 16 GB ram.
- laptop is compact, I'm still adjusting to the screen angle as it is very low and wide. Would have preferred a higher and narrower machine but that's all right. I have small hands so the extra keyboard space isn't a plus for me, but I can see how it would be good for others.
- RELIABLE - after buying a Lenovo that was a disaster from day one and came back from the repair depot with even more issues, I'm happy that this unit has no issues out of the box. It is a little heavier than I expected (coming from a machine that was 2.47 lbs), but light enough to put in a tote bag, and if extra weight is the trade-off for durability I understand. I chatted with customer service about the screenpad and they sent me a link with all the information I needed to solve the issue. The help documentation and myASUS web pages were obviously written by someone whose first language isn't English, but they're comprehensible enough.
- all the ports I need - HDMI, USB 3.0, USB-C, and so on. There is a RJ-45 adaptor for Ethernet in the box which I haven't used yet, but I appreciate that it was included.
- battery life - I'm averaging 11-12 hours with moderate use which is much better than the 6.5 I saw with Lenovo, but less stellar than the 12-14 I routinely saw with my 2014 MacBook Air. Charging time is quick as advertised.
- there is a large lip below the trackpad that catches your finger when scrolling. Coming from a MacBook the trackpad was longer, I find I have to "pick up" my finger more than before or with the Lenovo ideaPad I briefly endured.
- screen is glossy, bright enough to use in the sun but not the best in the business. Better than Lenovo but nowhere near MacBook quality.
- built-in sound is average (I use headphones mostly but FYI).
- Screenpad 2.0 didn't work at first and I had to update the software. So far I don't see a huge use case for it. I'd rather tab between applications than have a small and somewhat glitchy second screen that drains battery. I'll keep practicing with it and update if anything changes.
- the charger is proprietary and not USB-C - kind of nice to only need one charger for my phone and laptop, but oh well.
- separate graphics card - I'm not a gamer but this is nice to have, I guess.
For what I paid, I think this is a great laptop. I needed a Windows 10 machine for school and so far this is hitting it out of the park.
I was worried about the coil whine and reported trackpad issues, but as I write this review I am sitting in a library and don't hear a thing, and the trackpad has been normal.
The graphics card (Intel UHD 620) was a pleasant surprise - systemrequirementslab will tell you it can't run bupkis, but it is deceptively good at running most casual games.
Battery life is okay - learn to disable several battery gobbling things(backlit keyboard) and it should last a good 9-10 hours.
All in all, a great product.
Battery lasts me the entire day at school. The face recognition to unlock is such a blessing I didn’t realize I was missing.
Typing is easy and fluid
Simple case that came with it is awesome and I use it everyday to transport in my backpack. Fits well in my medium size backpack.
It was a tad on the expensive side for my price point but I’m glad I spent the money. So far it has been worth it.
For this price?? The best.
I have been buying Asus stuff for years. Always tell people to buy Asus blindly.
Don't get this laptop, get something else.
The trackpad is absolutely terrible - I don't know who's the designer or engineer behind this but this was a bad idea. I had to uninstall the drivers to make sure it stopped popping back to life everytime my computer went to sleep. Overall just a battery drainer and a gizmo that's really not that useful.
The battery life... at that price I would expect a laptop to last me for two university classes of simple powerpoint or office word use... but no. The battery always die mid way in my second class. At this price, this is absolutely unnacceptable. And this is new, I can't imagine in 3-4 years.
The overall stability - wifi often desync (no matter where I am). Connecting devices seems unstable overall. Sometimes some programs crash for no apparent reason at all.
The good now: the keyboard is great. I like it.
The screen is good and clear.
It's small and super conpact. Also, stylish.
Overall this isnt the worst laptop ever. It's just really not worth the price, and I am supper disappointed in Asus. If I could, I would get my money back and get something else.
The only problem and it is a big one, bigger than i tought. The touch pad is really bad. At first your are patient but when it refuses to click and move even when you're gentle, it awakes a lot of frustration that I don't want.
For that price I was looking to have at very least a decent touchpad, the technologie have been around for years now.
It is the only reason why I cannot recomend this computer.
PS. It's sooooo coooool to turn on your number pad!!!
